An Oasis among the many
Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent the weekend at the resort sponsored by my company and the staff bent over backwards for us. This facility is an Oasis amongst the bustling area of Destin and how they have managed this is exceptional.

This resort was clean. The rooms were neat and clean. The atmosphere was very relaxing. There were plenty of activities and place to eat within the resort. The staff were the friendliest staff I have ever encountered at a resort.

The Henderson Experience (Wonderful)
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

As an avid travel as a Marriott Elite member, I have stayed over 250 hotels + worldwide. The customer service at The henderson has been second to none. Each staff has been attentive from Check in with Nicole and Virginia to Kat while dinning at the pool/horizon restaurants. Lastly the director of food and catering made magic happen; when my 6 year old son asked for s’mores. Needless to say The Henderson experience truly enhanced our family spring-break memories. When I’m in Destin, The henderson is a home away from home.
Great Job!!!!

This resort is awesome. If you stay here you will always have great memories. The staff in all areas are second to none. The Resturant and bar have employees that always make it a pleasure to dine. The cooks in the kitchen always make very good food and the food is very well presented.
