It's simultaneously surprising and understandable that there are so many negative reviews of this hotel about the "beach services" guys. The hotel guaranteed the beach for a short wedding ceremony, but when we attempted to conduct the service, these jerks literally called the police on us. We thought the hotel owned this beach and it gave us permission, but apparently their promise that we'd be able to use it was false. I agree with the other reviews. If you intend to use the beach at all during your stay, find better accomodations.

So much yes!!! I don't have enough nice things to say about this gorgeous condo! It's in a great location, it was in immaculate condition, I loved the layout, and that couch was so comfortable! I can't wait to stay again!

We had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect and so pretty! The view was the best. We were on the second floor and could easily get up and down and around. This property is very close to anything you would want or need. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Loved our time there and we will be back!

I gave Sterling Shores 2 a 2 because the condo was very clean and nicely maintained. However, it was not what we paid for. When making our reservation I specifically asked for a condo with twin beds in the second bedroom for our 2 teens. We were given condo 307 and the description listed 2 twin beds. However, when we arrived we found only 1 bed in the second room. I went downstairs to speak with the front desk; I was told they had no other condos they could put us in. But they would be sending up a roll away bed at "no cost to us". Well....ok but I paid over 2 grand for a room that is not what we needed. The front desk made no effort whatsoever to make it right, just said sorry and they would send up a roll away bed. I tried contacting someone via the phone number and website but never got a response. I understand that mistakes happen and even being fully booked and not being able to be moved. But when a customer pays for a service and then doesn't get what they paid for, some kind of effort needs to be made to right that wrong. Which in NO WAY happened at Sterling Shores. In short, yes the condo was nice and well kept, but there are a lot of those in Destin. Next time we visit, we plan on staying somewhere that understands customer service.

2 bedroom two bath condo, very clean. On second floor, however you can still see the ocean through the trees. The beach is just across a small courtyard. Updated furniture, tile flooring and beautiful kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Great, family friendly resort with wonderful staff.

This unit is absolutely beautiful! It is just as pictured, but better! The views are breathtaking! The unit is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. Can't wait to return! The beach is a very short walk away.

We have visited Sterling Shores the past 3 years and this is our first stay in room #712 with 3 bedroom/3 bath, washer& dryer, lots of space with a great view of the beach and pool area. Perfect sitting area out on the balcony to have dinner. Near the elevators. Enjoyed our stay!

This was my families first time visiting Destin. I will first say that Destin is beautiful! Very clean beach and it's quiet. On another note, is boring for families. There isn't anything to do and restaurants are mostly approx 20 mins from these condos. Our condo was #515 it was decorated nice and was for the most part nice. I had a few major issues while staying here that were not addressed. We traveled with 4 people; mom, dad, 2 children. The hot water only lasted about 7-8 minutes. We called the front desk and they sent someone up. He checked and said the hot water heater was too small for a 2 bedroom condo. For 2200$ I would have like to be able to take a hot shower. Another issue was one night at the pool there were kids throwing rocks off the 5th floor balcony. We reported the issue to the front desk and the girl said "call sercurity because that's not anything we can handle" ridiculous. During our stay they advertise having a theater but it's never open. If I go back to Destin, I wouldn't stay here. No hot tub and both pools are cold.

This was my first time staying at Sterling shores... very nice condo and facility... the walk to beach is across the street but it is not walk around the pool & through gate cross street and thru a small path ... there are very nice gas grills , the pool is nice... everything is very clean & well kept

I went down to Destin with a few friends and their families, and this was by far one of the best places I've stayed. There was so much to do right around the condo, such as shopping, go karts, mini golf, and all types of other fun things. If I had a choice, I'd stay here every time I came to Destin. 10/10 Recommended
