... we made it through! We made the most amazing memories during the last week. As much as I love vacations, I also love getting home, sitting on my own couch and sleeping in my own bed!
Cant wait for our next adventure!

... was over we went looking for another one of the restaurants we had bought a gift card for, and come to find out it had closed (2 out of the 6 we bought we weren't able to use, thankfully they were super affordable and can be exchanged for different restaurants) so we decided to try the place that had a big sign saying that kids could eat for $2.89, cant beat that right?

We were so excited, keep in mind, up until this point in the week, if the waves even touched her toes, she instantly took off in the other direction as fast as her little legs would take her. I ran so quick to catch up with her that I didn't get a chance to grab my camera so I didn't get to get a picture of her :(. From that point on she loved the water, mommy's little girl loving ...

Today called for storms in the afternoon so we decided to spend the morning at the beach before the rain moved in, the sun went behind the clouds and the water got choppy! Another delightful morning of sand castle building, tide pool splashing, and chasing little miss down the beach while she waved to and smiled at every single person she passed. It was so cute to see her wave as fast and ...
... and it didn't disappoint. The portions were huge, little miss and I could easily have shared a meal rather than ordering her her own (which we did when we went back a couple days later) and the view from the tables were amazing, they had big open air windows looking out on to the beach and the gulf. If you could picture a beach front seafood restaurant in your head, it would be exactly what this place looks like. After dinner and a 5 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard
Much more than expected...
This hotel has so much to offer it was unbelievable. We chose the hotel based on price and location and WOW were we suprised at how much more there is to offer here. Little did we know that the hotel has access to Sandestin ammenities such as the free shuttle service and the Village of Baytowne Wharf. We had a nice room and loved the staff. I am not sure about the last review but everyone we encountered at the hotel was more than courteous and truly showed "southern hospitality". We will def. be back when in the area.
Sehr viel mehr als erwartet...
Das Hotel bietet so viel, es ist wirklich unglaublich. Wir wählten das Hotel wegen des Preises und der Lage und - WOW -, waren wir überrascht, wie viel mehr hier geboten wird. Wir haben nicht gewusst, dass das Hotel Zugang zu den Annehmlichkeiten von Sandestin hat, wie den kostenlosen Pendelverkehr, und zum Village of Baytowne Wharf. Wir hatten ein nettes Zimmer, die Angestellten waren herrlich. Ich bin mir nicht sicher, was die letzte Kritik meinte, aber jeder, den wir im Hotel trafen war mehr als zuvorkommend und zeigte wirklich die "Gastfreundschaft der Südstaaten". Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder hier übernachten, wenn wir wieder hier sind.
LOved the hotel, not the employees
We loved the hotel, location, and amentities. I was not impressed the the front desk associates. They were not overly friendly and I had to stand and wait over 4 minutes for a associate to speak to me and ask me what I needed. She was busy typing on the computer and the other associate was on the phone for the entire time. Then when he got off the phone he helped someone who walked up after me! She was not very customer friendly, nor was the person who checked us in. In our room we had a light bulb out, but the room was nice and cleand other than that. We did request extra towels, that were never sent either.
Highly recommend - just improve room cleaning
I really enjoyed my 3 night stay at the nicely appointed Courtyard Sandestin. I didn't realize before arriving that along with staying at the Courtyard I would be granted beach access within Sandestin - that was a nice bonus. The hotel was nicely appointed with modern furniture and decor and wifi throughout the building. My only complaint was with housekeeping - they would come by between 8-9 and if you were not out by then your room would not be cleaned until 3pm at the earliest! I thought this was somewhat excessive since the hotel is not very large and you may want to come back from the beach by 1 or 2 and shower off but no fresh towels would be awaiting you - otherwise this hotel is a great value and I will definitely stay there in the future!
Great, Hotel and Location
What a great place to stay, although it is not on the beach, they offer complimentary shuttle to and from the beach as well as to the many restaurants/village center Sandestin has to offer.
The Shuttle is great of you want to go out at night to Sanderstin "Village of Baytowne Wharf. Inside the Village is a great Breakfast restraunts 'Another Broken Egg Cafe's' open just 7am-2pm.
Overall this is great location within walking distance and Shuttle ride of good food,golf , beach and nightlife.
Nice hotel and great staff
My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard Sandestin in December 2006. The rooms are new and clean. The staff was very helpful.
We spent more time away from Sandestin that we did on the grounds, but sleeping in a new room was nice.
We would stay here again.
Everything about this hotel was excellent. The hotel staff were very friendly, the rooms were large and very well furnished and organized. The bathroom was large and very well laid out. The bed was so comfortable that I slept late and the pillows were so nice I'm considering calling to see where they purchase them. The breakfast was very affordable and the food was absolutely great. We commented the breakfast was as good as a high end restaurant. Although we didn't get to use the pool or weight room they were both above our expectations. The hotel even has snacks and alcoholic beverages available along with a bar with a large TV (they also had drink specials for each night). I highly recommend this hotel. A bonus was all the amenities available from the resort the hotel is located. We were unable to use them, but will certainly go back and take advantage.
This is a lovely new hotel in the Destin area. The very large lobby area is decorated in a contemporary, beachy theme. I felt as if I were in a nice European hotel. There are several seating areas, a fireplace, free computer with internet, free coffee bar, a bar area with large plasma tv, and a large restaurant. Also, there is a 24-hour snack shop & a fitness room adjacent to the lobby. Just outside is the very attractively landscaped medium-size pool, hot tub, and baby pool.
We will be back!!!
Where do I begin?!?! From the time you check in til the time you check out you feel so welcomed. The staff does an excellent job of making you feel at home. Once you get out of your car you never have to get into it again. The property offers free transportation to the beach and to the Village of Baytowne Wharf. I cant say enough good things about this property!!!!
What a great place to stay, although it is not on the beach, they offer complimentary shuttle to and from the beach as well as to the many restaurants Sandestin has to offer. Overall this is quite possibly one of the best Courtyards I have ever been to. Keep up the good work.
