Awesome place to stay! The pool is great and the access to the beach is just steps away. The jr suite room with the bunk beads is perfect for families. They are tucked around the corner from the main bed and allows for some separation. Got a great room upgrade as a gold member and it had a great ocean view!

We stayed here two nights while on a work trip. The accommodations were superb, more than I expected! We had two double beds, and there were bunk beds built into a nook with its own tv at the entrance to the room. Everything was nice and clean and all the staff we came into contact with were very nice. The view from the balcony was amazing! It was very easy to walk down onto the beach and enjoy the afternoon after all our work was done. We rented beach chairs and an umbrella one afternoon and there was a waitress that walked around and would take food and drink orders if you wanted her to bring you anything from the pool bar. It would be a great place to go back to with the kids as well. I would recommend Hilton Sandestin to couples and families alike.

Had an excellent weekend at the Hilton Sandestin. I will definitely return during my next trip to Destin later in the year.

The Pros:

- Customer Service was excellent - We were able to check in with no hassles and even check in a lot earlier than I anticipated. If your room is not ready, they will let you "pre-check in" and then call/text you when your room is ready.

- Rooms were great as well. We were in the rooms on the tower side. It was very spacious with a nice balcony. I also liked that the rooms on that side was accommodating for kids with a bunk bed and tv on the opposite side of the room as the king bed. We do not have children, but our friends did and this was a big plus for them.

- Pools and Beach Access - Has 2 pools, hot tub and private beach access.

- Location - The hotel is close to a sizable shopping center and off the main road where everything else in Destin is located.

Wifi - Had a strong signal in our room and in the lobby with no connectivity or speed issues. If you are a veteran let them know, and they will give you a code for free access to the higher speed wifi.

- Price was comparable (and slightly cheaper) than the surrounding hotels on the night that we booked.

Cons

- Restaurants in the hotel lobby are expensive and OK in quality. We tried the sushi bar, and it was very expensive for the food offered (one of the entres on the evening menu was $47 for a steak).

- Navigation is a bit confusing. I counted 4 sets of elevators in the hotel and that was just the ones that I saw. It's easy to become disoriented when initially looking for your room on account of the size of the hotel.

- Hilton Honors Customer Service - We initially tried booking the hotel by calling their booking line and using our honors account, but we reached an assistant who was just one step above incompetent. He was not even able to confirm if the hotel was booked up for the duration of our stay. Thankfully, we tried again and booked through a 3rd party site.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the tower side. Most of the rooms on that side are ocean front.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights on our road trip around Florida and wish we had stayed longer.
The hotel is in a beautiful location on the beach.
The room was a good size with two queen bed and was very clean. The beds were comfy and there was plenty of room for storage in the room. There was a fridge in the room along with coffee making facilities and a safe, Iron and ironing board.
The bathroom was also a good size and again very clean.
The room had a balcony looking over the swimming pool and out over the beach and sea.
The pool area was well kept and very clean. Towels were available at the pool and it was never a problem finding a bed, It was very quiet when we stayed.
There is a resort fee to pay at the resort and this includes WiFi and parking.
The hotel is very close to restaurants and bars and lots of shopping.
We couldn’t have chose a better hotel or location for our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and will definitely return some time in the future.
