My husband and i spent one night here Sept 2012 - (our wedding night) Our budget had us in one of the smallest rooms with a view. It was lovely and cozy and very welcoming after our busy day. The breakfast was very good. I just wish we had been able to spend a few days there,

Our stay at HPI exceeded all of our expectations! Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and delicious food! Chef Greg was outstanding at Breakfast. Front desk staff were courteous and informative. We stayed on the 2nd floor in the main building and had a spectacular view! The lanterns and fire pit created a beautiful view at night as well. We definitely will be back!

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Inn and it was a perfect place to be for romance and relaxation. The facilities, the staff and the view of the Gulf cannot be beat.
The Inn is centrally located in Destin which adds to its charm but we really never wanted to leave the Inn.
The restaurant is one of the best meals we have ever had. Dining on the porch made it even more special.
Highly recommend this wonderful hotel~

The Emerald Waters outside of our french doors at Emerald Park Inn were sparkling and mesmerizing. This lovely hotel is free of children and the difference that made was amazingly peacful, calming and romantic indeed. Our hosts welcomed us as if we were close friends coming to visit. They introduced us to the "common" refrigerator filled with goodies. The breakfasts were the same each morning, but absolutley delicious. There was something for every palate. We would pick up our box lunches each day at noon and head for "whereever." Lemondate and cookies were out each day between noon and one for all....serve yourself. There is no need to try and seek an elegant dining environment. A gourmet chef is on duty at the Inn. Our meals were perfect. The one night we went out to Bonefish Grille was one that we regretted; but at least now we know. The only disappointment was a dessert order one night for Key Lime Pie. I expected the real "Key West" style. But, a lovely key lime cheesecake was before me. I do not like ANY kind of cheesecake (shoot me : ). Anway, no worries, the waiter took it away and took it off our bill. For all my friends who like cheesecake, it was a winner.

The Inn is world class in my opinion. Its cozy and very welcoming. This is not a place for young kids or teenagers . Its a great couples getaway and romantic doesn't begin to describe it. Top notch service and I especially enjoyed meeting the other guests in the evening. Do yourself a huge favor and visit where you are right on the beach and wake to the sound of the Gulf of Mexico. I already made myself another reservation:)

Like most people we booked HPI with no firsthand knowledge of the property, but by relying on online reviews and photos. This place exceeded all of our expectations! We were celebrating our 10 Year anniversary and could not have picked a better place to do it. I cannot recall having been to a place where the staff was so friendly. The breakfast was amazing and the boxed lunch was perfect for a quick meal on the beach. Make it a point to have dinner in their restaurant at least one night of your stay. It is memorable! I cannot say enough good things and look forward to returning again very soon.

Absolutely lovely place to stay. Quiet and right on the beach. Crystal clear water and the staff were wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Situated in and are with plenty of options for dining and playing. Would definitely stay again!
