It is a very nice property. Food is good, but overpriced. Rooms was very nice, as was the bathroom. Good linens, good water pressure. Like very much the recycling bin at the end of the hall. But they do nickel and dime you to death, extra for wifi, parking, that sort of thing. I don't mind paying for a good room at a nice hotel, and don't consider myself cheap at all. But I think those things should be included in your stay.

I went with my mother for the Independence Day weekend. She caught a flash sale so the breakfast buffet and internet were included. We were upgraded to an ocean view junior suite. In addition to the king size bed, there bunk beds. The were two televisions which seemed to have different channel line ups which was a little strange The room had a microwave and a fridge which allowed for some savings.

The breakfast buffet was above average. You can have omelets or waffles (with pecans, coconut or chocolate chips) made to order. The buffet has typical southern fare - grits, bacon, sausage, biscuits etc. There's a Starbucks like cafe that's not called Starbucks but offers much of the Starbucks menu including Frappuccinos. Perhaps there's a licensing issue. The cafe also sells Krispy Kreme donuts at $2 a pop. There's another take out place that sells individual size Pizza Hut pizzas for $8. There's a restaurant on the boardwalk for burgers, chicken fingers and drinks. The drinks were expensive and the food was average. There's a high end steakhouse, Seagar's, downstairs but I didn't get to try it.

The beach area is immaculate. You can rent chairs and umbrellas if you're willing to sell your firstborn or you can bring your own chairs. People stake out the chairs and umbrellas at the pool early in the morning so you'd better set your alarm if you hope to get one.

The hotel has undergone renovations in recent years. It spacious, lovely and perfect for a family vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room in the tower.

The hotel is beautiful and is right on the Gulf. The food was really good. If money is no object, this is the place for you! However, like most of us, $$$ is important. $10 per day to park, $20 if you valet; $10 per day for Wifi; Breakfast buffet for family of 4 - $65; Cheeseburger, fries and a can of Coke - $22; bottled water in your room - $3.49 each; Coke vending machine - $2.50. If you have a fat wallet, you'll love it! If not, apply for a loan.

We have been coming here for many years. It has been recently updated which was a good thing. We always enjoy our stay. The location can't be beat right on the sugar sand gulf beaches. The restaurants are convenient and fit a variety of needs. There are several pool options also.

Sandestin Hilton was in the best location possible. We were steps away from the beach and had a view of the beach from our patio. It was extremely convenient if we needed to make a run back to the room or to enjoy the hotel property pool (indoor and outdoor pools and saunas were available). Lounge chairs on the hotel deck were plentiful. There were activities daily for young children. Rooms were spacious and clean. There were a few outlets in our room that were loose, but didn't bother us much. I would stay here again.
