Courtyard by Marriott Sandestin at Grand Boulevard

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2010

I got this hotel bidding on Priceline for $60.00 a night. So glad I didn't pay more for it. The hotel is just average nothing special. It is clean. The walls are thin and you can hear everything going on. The air conditioner in the room is very noisy.. The curtains were torn. It is not on the beach. If you are looking for more than average this is not your hotel. I would not stay there again.

This hotel was really nice. It was on the outside of Destin in Sandestin but was not that bad of a drive to Destin. We had access to a private beach. The room had free internet access, coffee maker and refrigerator. There was coffee in the lobby. The room was very clean and big. The staff was friendly but we did not have to deal with them alot.

We stayed at the Courtyard and it was absolutely perfect. We had access to a private area of the beach and the Sandestin Village. We visited all the shops in the village and at night the restaurants were great! Having access to all of the locations via the tram service was amazing! I think we only drove our own personal vehicle one time while we were there. The breakfast buffet at the courtyard was awesome as well. We had a great view from our balcony of the golf course and pool. The staff was amazing too! They were all very helpful and more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect! We plan to go back as soon as possible!

It's a Courtyard much like any other. So, if you like Courtyard you'll have no surprises. Not on the beach, not a resort, just a Courtyard...
If you stay here you'll need to sped $5 a day for the 'Tram' bus that will take you around the resort and allow you to use the 3 pools - including the one down at the beach.
Convenient for Grand Boulevard and Sandestin shops.
Good budget option with Priceline if you don't mind the tram rides to get around.

Business takes me to the Destin, FL area frequently, and I generally stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly and the rooms are tidy and well kept. The hotel is part of the Sandestin complex, but is not on the beach- it is along US 98. When staying here you can access the Sandestin facilities/beach, and there is an occasional shuttle that will take you to the beach area if you don't want to drive. The hotel always seems pretty quiet, and it does not seem to attact the loud parties that some of the other hotels in the area attract.
Like all Courtyards, this hotel does not have complimentary breakfast, though it is pretty good, and costs about $11 (all you can eat). There is free wifi and two public use computers in the lobby. Every room I have stayed in at this hotel has a small refrigerator, and some rooms have microwaves (and there is a public use microwave in the lobby). The hotel shares a parking lot with an Applebee's restaurant and is adjacent to the Grand Boulevard shopping area. Also, a Publix grocery store is about a 1/4 mile walk.
The hotel is about a mile from the start of County Highway 30-A (the Beach Road) and is about 2 miles from the outlet mall. A sidewalk runs to the outlet mall, so if you were ambitious, you could walk it. The hotel is adjacent to the golf courses of Sandestin.

I went with my husband for the weekend to this hotel as a getaway from my children while he took care of some business. I do not recommend this hotel. The walls are paper thin! You hear everything on the street, next room, etc. The rooms are tiny. For a hotel very close to the beach, it does not have the vacation feel you would hope to find. It is in a nice location, close to outlet shopping and the baytown activities. The bar does not open until past five so no afternoon drinks by the pool.

The family and I just returned from a quick stay in Sandestin at the courtyard Marriott, and I must say that even though this was a lower budget quick getaway for us this was one of our favorite vacations. The staff at the hotel were absolutely awesome from the front desk to the breakfast crew, we could nnot have asked for motre. I actually experienced a minor medical emergency and they went above and beyond in being accomodating to all of my needs. The tram service was a definate plus eliminating the need for our car the entire time we were there. We visited the beach and the wharf and had great meals at the restaurants on site, even the pizza that we ordered out for was spectacular. All in all this was a great stay and we are definately adding this stop to our list of must stays on an anuall basis. You will not be disapointed if you pick the courtyard over any other Sandestin hotel trust me!!!!
