We just enjoyed five days and nights at the HPI. It was cool, but the view from our personal balcony and the sound of the gulf was just the break we needed from the frigid midwestern temps. The amenities were perfect in our opinions. We especially enjoyed breakfast and the soups served with the box lunches. If we ever escape to Destin, again, hubby and I will definitely consider HPI first!

The only reason our stay was not perfect was because our visit was much too short! My husband and I visited the Henderson Park for a few days as a belated honeymoon treat. From the warm greeting from the front desk staff until the time we left, we were treated like royalty. Our cozy room was a welcoming sight with wine and a light snack. The atmosphere was relaxing and inviting and the fact that this getaway place is adults only is a huge plus. The breakfasts are beyond amazing. We also attended Chef Greg's cooking class and had a good time! The days are relaxing and the hospitality continues all day long with a fridge full of refreshing drinks, a coffee bar, and an ample selection of candy bars. Happy hour is a nice way to relax before dressing for dinner. I must comment on a review a couple gave when they were not given a box lunch to take with them on their day of departure. It plainly states in the guest information packet everyone gets that one cannot get a box lunch on the day of departure. They must have misunderstood or did not read that part of the information. When finances permit, we will definitely stay here again. It is on the pricy side, but is worth the splurge. Waking up, opening the doors, walking out on the deck and seeing the ocean makes it worthwhile!!

Room Tip: You must choose an ocean front room. It is why we go the ocean, right?!

My husband and I live in Destin, Florida, but had never stayed at Henderson park in before. We decided to book a room to have a romantic weekend before our first baby arrives. We were blown away by the room which had a balcony and gorgeous ocean view, staff, food, and the grounds of the hotel. They truly thought of every detail down to cappuccino machines, free candy bars, fire pit, happy hour, games, and movies. One of our favorite parts was the amazing breakfast buffet offered every morning and the picnic lunch they supplied with cookies and lemonade. We had a truly, amazing weekend and highly recommend this quaint bed and breakfast.

My husband and I arrived on the first day of January 2014 and found Henderson Park Inn to have wonderful ambiance, a world away from the condo communities. A tray with wine, grapes, chocolate and real roses, not artificial, set the tone. Genuine hospitality, excellent food with all details thought out for the guest's enjoyment are found at this jewel of an inn on the white sands at Destin. I'm just thankful we found it since we had searched for a place with character and comfort. It truly met our expectation and much more!

We arrived to find our room set with wine and roses, soft music playing and a large room complete with garden jacuzzi tub and towel warmer a. The staff was responsive, the adult clientele relaxed and conversational. Scenery was beautiful and we will definitely come back next year.

Breakfast was generous and well presented, lunch was good and prompt. Dinner at Beach Walk Cafe was not horrible but nothing rememberable. The atmosphere was ok but not very elegant. Side dishes were bland, ribeye was tender but over cooked. Dessert was Bread Pudding made from Krispy Kreme Donuts. The texture was soggy and the flavor was not pleasant. Dinner for two was nearly 160.00. It was disappointing.

We spent four nights at The Inn and enjoyed four memorable breakfasts! Chef Greg is not only a good cook but he and his staff help start the day with a wonderful meal and a welcoming, cheerful attitude. The box lunches were delightful and so by dinner time, it was difficult to make a decision from the menu. We were able to share an entree after each having an appetizer~try the Kung Pao shrimp) We had two dinners at The Beach Walk. The first was quite nice, with a seafood pasta (which we shared) however the second dinner was prepared by someone other than the usual chef and the fish was very over cooked, and we were unable to eat it. The management agreed, apologized profusely and took it off the bill and offered a desert to compensate. I am sure on most occasions this would not happen, and we appreciated the courteousness of the staff. The atmosphere, the view and the staff are unbeatable.

We visited the Henderson Park Inn over New Years. We booked this property after reading the glowing reviews that have come before so expectations were high. The location is picture-perfect, beautiful white sand beaches, sea birds, and even though it was cool, the place was ideal for early beach walks. Breakfasts are everything one could want whether you are health conscious like we are or want the full array of eggs and waffles. Really wonderful. Our room, sorry to say, was a bit of a disappointment. It felt small , there was no space to unpack or store luggage and really no place to sit comfortably and read. I have no idea why it was called a "suite". We were told box lunches were available but the day of checkout the desk clerk would not get us our lunch to take on the road. That was disappointing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony but not 204.
