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.
Loved the Courtyard
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.
Super Spot in Sandestin!
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.
Our room was on the 5th floor and had a view of the parking lot. The other side of the hotel has a view of the pool and golf course. Even though the hotel is just off Highway 98, there was no traffic noise. We had two very comfy queen beds with fresh white linens and polyfill duvets. The room is painted in beachy tones of turquoise, medium blue, sea green, and gold. The bathroom, with granite countertops, is a little nicer than average.
Breakfast is available in the lobby restaurant for $10.95 (children under 11 are free, I think.) We did not try it, opting instead for the delicious Donut Hole down the street. Our favorite activity was riding bikes on the extensive bike trail system, located just across the parking lot in Sandestin. Also, you can take the free shuttle to the beach, Baytowne Wharf restaurants, or Sandestin Market shops.
The Courtyard is the perfect choice in Destin, if you don't mind jumping on the shuttle or in your car to go to the beach!
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.
