The resort was in tip top condition. Our wait to check in was a little long so an extra staff person was needed. Our condo was great. All of the activities the resort has to offer fit what my family loves to do, be outside at the beach or on the water. Would like to see another breakfast place. Broken Egg is it and the wait is long if after 9am. Also, the marina bar should stay open to 12 am during the week. Watched a lot of people walk away mad. Last, please have the marina bar open for breakfast every day of tournament week. It has great food,,,sell it! We will be back!

Beautiful beaches, but don’t expect to get in the water

$500. That’s what you can expect to pay for getting your feet wet at Sandestin beach. Fort Walton Fire District is the authority that mandates swimming conditions on Sandestin beaches. According to a representative from FWFD, swimming conditions are not based on the surf, but rather on the size of the crowds. If a rip current is spotted at a beach nearby (Red flag, high hazard), FWFD might close the Sandestin beaches (Double red flags, no swimming), despite relatively favorable swimming conditions, to prevent people in neighboring towns from driving over to the already crowded public beach in Sandestin. That means that a code enforcement officer can write you a ticket for a $500 fine for not keeping your feet on dry sand. With shopping, arcades, and hotel pools, there is still a lot to do in Sandestin, but if your dream vacation includes taking off your sandals and splashing around in the water, you might want to go somewhere else.

our stay at the shabby chic vrbo

when we tried to check in the owner had failed to supply us with the code to get the key from the key lock. we went into your office and we were greated by Cheyenne Hasse. the property we were booked at was not one of yours But Cheyenne told us not to worry that she would help us . Cheyenne used our phone to try and get the attachment from the owner to open with no luck, she didnt stop there she sent the owner an e-mail and requested a call back. finnaly Cheyenne got the owner to reply and got her to send us a code to get the key. Cheyenne went far and beyond to help us get our stay at this property started. Cheyenne is a great assest to your company and she is why we will be coming back. Her great service showed us that you have people that really care about custermer service.. i wish Cheyenne great suscess in her future. i am sure she will excell whit what ever she does and hopefully she will be working for you for a long time.

The Pros and Cons
Reviewed 3 days ago

My husband and I checked in July 11th and will be checking out later on today. Our first initial reaction to the resort was it is beautiful. We stayed in the Bayside rooms. The outside is great as well as the view. The room was a disappointment. Linens were less than great and the bed was the quality of an old box spring.The mattress cover was so thin and old. The head board of our bed was a cream colored leather but it was in such bad shape. It has holes in it. Housekeeping was awful! After "cleaning" the room Friday, we were only given one face towel and when we asked for more we were told they didn't have any so I was forced to wash with a dry towel. Saturday once we got back to our room the bed was sloppily made, my husband had to fix the toilet, and there were no face towels at all. The housekeeping staff that cleaned our room didn't clean. The sheets hadn't been changed, there were wet towels still left in the shower and the handle to the toilet had been broken. Because it is 1:30am, my husband took it upon himself to fix it until we could contact the resort in the morning. For almost $1000, I expected much more. Yes there are complimentary items such as use of a tennis court and bikes but you miss out on a complimentary breakfast and other amenities that other places close around offer for the same price. For almost $1000, I expect hotel quality bedding at least. There were some positives. Another Broken Egg on the resort is excellent for breakfast. Walking around the resort is beautiful. The pool and the beach are incredible but all of that can be obtained for much less than the nearly $1000 spent. The Bayside building is long overdue for a makeover. It is so outdated! Overall, our trip to Florida was great. The only downside was the hotel.

Mixed review but would not go back.
Reviewed 4 days ago

There were pro's and con's of our visit but we would not go back. We booked a SouthSide 3 bedroom for the five of us for ~$550 per night. We were disappointed to find that we were on the bottom floor of a three level condo. The condo was nice but had very little natural light. Not what i expected of a beach vacation but we checked in quite late and likely got one of the last rooms available. That night, our sons tried to log into the WiFi only to find there was none. I drove back to the check-in center, waited in line again, and was told that the condos were owned by private owners and it was the owner's decision to not provide wifi. I said I wished they had told us that when we checked in. Nowadays, WiFi is a requirement and i was surprised they would let their owners not provide it. The front desk, now late at night on a Saturday, was very understanding and agree to upgrade us at no charge to a much better room, with an ocean view in a beachside tower. I was thrilled and the family was too but the room wasn't avaliable until Sunday.

The next day we went back to check in and were told they would not honor the commitment from the night before and we would have to pay the price difference. (this took about an hour of waiting to find out) I wasn't surprised, the new room was much nicer than the old room and it had seemed too good to be true. I expected the Sandestin to comp part of the difference but all they were willing to do was lower the rate of the now ~$800 per night room by $17 per night. That was insulting. For the inconvenience of having to change rooms and hours of waiting in the lobby to resolve these issues.
The room was beautiful but the beds were terrible. The bed in the master bedroom squeaked loudly every time we rolled over. (Sorry i don't remember the room number)
The beach was beautiful, soft white sand, and only steps away. Not much for waves but that is normal for Sandestin.
Unfortunately, two days into our trip, my wife's father had a stroke and passed away. She immediately went home to Europe but with plane tickets at $3500 each, my sons and i did not go. The next day we explained the situation to the hotel and asked if we could check out early. We were told that since we were not going to the funeral, we would be allowed (!) to leave the room but there would be no refund for the week.

So here is the bottom line of the review. The beautiful white sand beaches of Sandestin, are great, and with warm weather and tiny waves, it is perfect for small children. The room we ended up in was nice and had an amazing view. If it wasn't for the awful beds (all of them), it was worth $800 per night. But the Sandestin beach resort property is nothing special. And in our dealings with the front desk, it was clear it is just about the money for them. It is a big property, with a lot of rooms, and if we weren't happy they had hundreds of other people ready to book. I would definitely recommend Sandestin (the town) for families with small children but wouid not go back to the Sandestin Beach Resort.
