“Perfect!”
Reviewed 29 July 2004

We stayed at Sterling Shores the summer of 2003 in July for a week and loved every minute of it. Our condo was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and very spacious! The washer/dryer was a must, and I was very thankful for it. Our oversized balcony overlooked the pool and beach. I was originally concerned about the "walk to the beach". My husband and I were traveling with our 3 year old, and three teenagers. I invested in "wonder wheels". Go online to purchase this beach cart. It's wonderful and very handy. This helped greatly with our trip to the beach each day. Which, by the way, was no big deal at all to walk to. The spacious pool really made the trip for us. My 3 year old loves the sand, but had nothing to do with getting into the ocean. And, after spending the day on the beach, we all looked forward to our evening swim. Sterling Shores was never crowded while we were there. Very relaxing! I'd give this a definate "A" and look forward to going back soon. The sand at Destin is like powdered sugar. Just so soft - but the unfortunate side to that is there is no sea shell searching. Don't hesitate to go to Destin, or to Sterling Shores. Enjoy!

Reviewed 24 June 2004

The net site "condo saver" rated Sterling Shores a four star property. What they failed to mention was that the hotel is a rather long hot walk to the crowded beach. Once at the beach, the Sterling guests are confined to a very small area of beach sandwiched between two resorts that offer their guest much nicer access to the beach. The rooms are small but clean. The big disappointment was that the view from all rooms and the pools was of a VERY large, neon-lit seafood resort that caters to a large tourist crowd. Not only can you NOT see the gulf from your room, what you do see is bright neon signs attached to an unattractive restaurant. We were very displeased.
