“Still great after a facelift”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Over the winter the Hilton Sandestin received a facelift to the tune of tens of millions of dollars. Among other things, they gutted and put in a new main restaurant, a new bar, a new lobby, and updated the rooms. In short, it looks great yet retains the character of what you'd want out of a beach property. What hasn't changed is the best beach in the lower 48 states, and some awesome customer service.

I'm leaving here for the first time this summer - coming back again - and have been taking my son here every summer and it has proven to be a great family place. The beach wares him out, the pools entertain him when he needs to chill, and the beach wraps up his day with crab hunting. Great to see he'll have many fond memories here through the years as we'll surely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for the spa tower.

My family and i vacation here every year we get the most expensive room each year , like six hundred per night ! Bottom line about rateing this hotel ? Just call and try to make reservations , if a hotel is booked up every night every room for months in advance what dose that tell you ? I'd just like to know when will I start getting praise from my family ! Makeing a lot of money isn't what I thought it would be !

I really enjoyed the Hilton Sandestin! Definitely worth every penny. The grounds are amazingly beautiful. The view from the room is to die for. If you get a chance book here. This is the best hotel in Destin, FL.

The food service is exceptional but the staff was only adequate. The rooms need a little updating, air conditioning not great and bathroom not well ventilated. Electrical outlets need replacing due to wear.

WIFI not included, beach chairs not included, breakfast of any kind not included, room not cleaned every day. The coffee maker in the room was a two cup or individual cup maker. This was nice except if you each want two cups. If you each want two cups you will have to wait on room service to bring more coffee. The beach and the view was very nice. NICE PLACE, NICE BEACH, NICE STAFF JUST OVER PRICED FOR WHAT YOU RECEIVE.

This place books up fast. We spent the week with a friend who was rewards Member. And tried To book an extra day and was willing to pay out of. Poker any cost and it seemed like a bother for staff to help accommodate this. Breakfast
Buffett is awesome. Dinner at night you can skip at the Buffett.
Try The sushi. Outside food is good the drinks are well made.
The pool area For kids always has Something going on.
And the staff has entertainers come In regularly. Face Painting balloon animals etc. kids felt
Great.

Nice stay, don't think I would stay here out of pocket. not for me. A lot of snotty people. Thank god we made nice friends with another family from the Midwest. The kids had a blast last year.

Great amenities with excellent staff! We love taking our family. The resort never disappoints... We absolutely love the breakfast bar located inside the main lobby. The location is great also. The room is extremely comfortable with great beds. It is always clean and up to date. The spa is out of this world and conveniently located in the hotel. Our kids enjoy being able to go from the beach to the pool
