Great upscale resort experience

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 17, 2024
Overall, the resort is great. Upscale feel and solid food and accommodations. Only issue was our room.was infested with swarms of mosquitoes. Killed at least 20 of them and barely made a deny. Obviously, rhe less than bright previous guests left yhe balcony doors wide open for a very long time. For the rates they charge, I'd rather not be part of a lab experiment. However, the management team was very helpful and quickly moved us to another room on a higher floor with a better view. That's how you make things right. Good job.
The private beach was great too. Although fairly crowded (expected on evey Destin beach in June), it was all resort guests. The guys working the chairs and umbrellas were awesome. Very friendly, helpful and accommodating to whatever we asked. Great job Matt, Marco & Jake!
Total experience was positive and enjoyable. Would definitely come back.
Date of stay: June 2024
Room Tip: Adult pool has a DJ on weekends and feels more like being in Vegas.

Henderson Beach Resort is first class! From the rooms, to the restaurants, pools and spa! The convenience of beachside service and lunch delivery right to us on the beach. Anthony at the beach service was super helpful and friendly! The entire resort is amazing, we will be back!

The Henderson Resort is a beautiful property. The amenities and customer service are both top notch, especially Matt at the beach hut. He is very attentive and helpful. He makes a point to check on the beach goers, offering shade and towels regularly.

Beautiful hotel, but be prepared for a lot of little annoyances: 1) your expensive room probably doesn’t include a refrigerator, but does have a ‘cooler’ and a warning note on the front that its not meant for perishables, but you should also know it won’t actually keep already cold drinks cold, they get warm, its possible they are cooler than the actual air in the room, but not guaranteed. 2) the icemaker in the hall cannot keep up with all the demand from people keeping their personal ice chests full so they can have cold things 3) the sundries store with snacks and cold drinks closes at 5 for some reason 4) the pool side bar closes at 6 regardless of how full the pool is or how thirsty any of your friends or family may be 5) the food is average. I guess there just isn’t much competition for nice hotels in the area so they don’t feel they need to excel beyond the physical building. Definitely would not come back. So disappointing given so much potential.

Room tip: Bring a big ice chest and lots of extra ice if you want to keep anything cold. Plan on eating off property if you want decent food.

beach & pool were great. nice breeze. like having separate adult & kids pool. the spa mani & pedi were fabulous. ask for Theresa when you get mani/pedi. rooftop lounge was great watching sports on tv. beverages great. lobster roll to die for. pizza was right up there as well. nice view of the shoreline to watch sunsets as well. overall fabulous place for great r & r.

Room tip: no outside food/beverages allowed. sadly the refrigerators in rooms do not accommodate perishables(milk, leftovers-if any from meals,etc)
