Courtyard by Marriott Sandestin at Grand Boulevard
Ranked #3 of 39 Hotels in Destin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 April 2011

We booked this hotel for spring break with my family. We have 2 eight year olds. Our room was very clean and spacious. Housekeeping was great! We had a nice balcony overlooking the pool, which was also very nice. The bathroom was very spacious and wonderful. I did not feel tired like I had slept in a hotel, we slept like we were at home.
The best part was having access to the Sandestin resort, which included a private beach access, Baytowne Wharf, and multiple swimming pools. When we go back to Destin, we will book this hotel again. This hotel was also within walking distance to a nice outdoor mall with restraunts. The hotel breakfast was also great!
Thank you!

Its the "Courtyard Sandestin" and they have no access to the actual Sandestin resort or beaches. They should not be allowed to use the name Sandestin if there are no privileges to the resort. Location was ok but the beach access was the biggest downfall. If you are on a business trip and need an affordable place to stay, this would be your place.

Yes, the Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard had an interim restriction to beach access at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. We are pleased to announce that in recent days management came to an agreement with Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and the guest of Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard can once again enjoy the amenities of the resort including beach access.

Very nice hotel for the business traveler, rooms are nice and great location but the tram no longer makes stops at this hotel. That was the main reason I choose this hotel for the transporation. Its $5.00 per person each way to get to Baytowne or the beach. Next time I will stay at a different hotel with the tram.

Very nice hotel for both business and leisure travelers. It is quiet, conveniently located near a nice selection of eateries and a good value. The staff all went out of their way to be friendly, the rooms are well designed and the free WI-FI works well in the room and lobby.

The hotel is within walking distance of a Mitchell's Fish Market restaurant, PF Chang's, a steak restaurant who's name I can't remember and a small selection of chain stores like Orvis, Chicos, etc. Also very near a good ice cream store that is opposite PF Chang's.

The Courtyard is about a 5 minute drive to the beach, 10 minutes to the Silver Sands Outlet mall. It borders the the SanDestin Resort where you are able to walk, run, use the nature trails and enjoy the nightlife at the Baytowne Wharf area.

I got our room on priceline.com. paid $65 a night for 2 nights. Check-in was easy. Room was clean. Room is very quiet. Few things for the picky people. The bed was stiff, no plush beds. the heater unit (it was winter) is alittle noisy. No fancy tub. But this is a 3 star hotel. We did go to the breakfast buffet one morning. It is $10.99 like the other reviews state but they did give us a 20% off coupon which $8.80. This includes juice and coffee so i think it is a very good deal. Waffles and made to order omelette. they have bacon, sausage hash browns. fruits, grits and more. Location is good too. I decided to give this place a rating of 5 because this value is great. If you get this room on priceline you may want to call if you want a king size bed. we had 2 queens and all the kings were booked when we checked it. Not a big deal to us. Internet is free and the pool look great from my window. (it was winter). i think that covers everything.

This was our first trip to the Florida panhandle, and this Courtyard was a great value. The hotel was mostly empty since we stayed on a Sunday evening. You definately want to have a car since you are not close to the beaches. There is an Applebee's next to the hotel.

We stay at a lot of Courtyards. This one is about 5 years old and needs to be updated with the new lobby and flat screen TV's. Our TV could not get several of the channels (including no HBO) and some were fuzzy. Maintenance came up and said there was nothing he could do, and that all rooms had the same cable reception problems.

Staff was very good.

I've stayed here on several occasions and never been disappointed.The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome.Hotel guests can have all the benefits of Sandestin's properties,such as the free shuttle to Baytowne Wharf's dining areas,and to the beach.Also has numerous restaurants conveniently located down a quiet back street drive to them. PF Changs is a great one to try,and there is also a Applebees in the parking lot. Rooms aren't overly large,but they are well furnished with nice Marriott bedding for a good nights sleep,and the baths are very nice,and well set up.Tub and shower are nicer than most hotels out there.Can be a little pricey in summertime,but price is great after Labor day .It is on the outskirts of Destin at Miramar,and this is a plus due to keeping you away from Destin's traffic snarls. Many nice shops and restaurants right next door. Hotel is adjacent to golf course,and nice reisdential area with super nice walking and bike paths.
