Our trip is coming to an end. We arrived at our last stop - Henderson State Park in Destin, Fl. around noon. Weather is threatening but not too bad. We walked the beach which has a red flag flying due to high surf and undertow. The water is so warm, it would have been fun going for a swim. Oh well. We hope to see the sun rise over the Gulf in the morning, then we'll be on the home stretch - 488 miles to Palm Harbor.
We arrived late Friday night the staff was friendly and helpful they allowed me to park my travel trailer with the assistance of their staff. The facilities were clean the bathrooms were amazingly clean. All around great trip camping on the beach. ...
... them for dinner as our next stop was the village at Baytown Wharf where we spotted the Acme Oyster house and introduced the girls to raw oysters on the half shell.
Later that evening we found the Truman Show on Netflix.
This huge bank of clouds off across the sea looks like trouble for today. Have now sat watching for half an hour and the direction seems to be to the West of us. Hurrah. There have been big lightning flashes inside the huge cloud but I am always just too slow with the ...
This is more like it. Temperature is a comfortable 30 degrees and sun is out. Girls and Dad are getting out all the beach stuff to see what is useable. We had cinnamon buns for breakfast. Now it's time to chill. Surf is loud today thanks to the storms and there is a rip tide warning so we won't be going far into the sea. More thunder due later but we are going to enjoy while we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Sandestin Beach, Golf Resort & Spa
DISAPPOINTED TO SAY THE LEAST
Prior to traveling to this Hilton, I had read nothing but wonderful review. I also had heard from friends that this resort in general was "the best." Upon entering the front doors, I felt "unwelcome" by the staff and this feeling never changed throughout the week I stayed there. My room was not so impressive, dusty, dirty, obviously used, and an ac that worked part time. I slept there at night but rented a car and spent the rest of my time seeing other sights. I am disappointed to think I spent my hard earned money for a week of disappointment. I suggest staying anywhere on the resort but the Hilton.
Friendly Staff & Great Service
The Hilton's a great hotel overall. There is shuttle service to the outlet malls, Baytowne Wharf, and the golf courses. The food is great, very nice cocktail lounge in the lobby, and the prices for items in the stores and restaurants are reasonable. The rooms are very roomy, and there is even a tv in the bathroom. Every room has a balcony, and you can see the ocean from every room. The only problem is that there is no service elevator so sometimes you can get stuck waiting for one. The beach and pools are great, and this is a great family resort.
My wife and our three kids, just about live in hotels.The staff was wonderful,starting with the nice guy at the security hut. The grounds were nicely manicured, and really made you feel like you are on a resort. The valet parking guys were very nice, and well... simply everyone was very gracious. The room was amazing! It was very spacious, clean (a must for us), and nicely deocrated. The kids loved their little alcove with the bunkbeds. It almost felt like an actual 2 bedroom suite. The pools, both indoor and outdoor, and the hot tub were all great. We spent a lot of time there and on the beach. The beach is picture postcard beautiful. The sand is like white powder. We've actually been to several beaches in Florida, the Caribbean, the Virgin Islands, and Mexico. But this was by far the most beautiful beach we have ever seen.
The Sandestin Resort area is so beautifully manicured. There is security upon entering the complex, and when you first drive up, staff members meet you at the car and help you unload your bags.
We live 2 hours from Sandestin and the Sandestin Hilton is a favorite get a way for this family of five! The bunk beds in the Jr. suite are great. The bunk beds are in a cove--so it is like having two rooms in one. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, mulitple hot tubs, An AWESOME Spa (Serenity by the Sea) a must do!! Definitly try the massage--it is wonderful! My husband and I took turns visiting the spa. The staff at the spa are superb! Very friendly. Heath at the Guest Desk is also awesome. I found the hotel staff to be super friendly. Shuttle service is available to Fisherman's wharf--lots of great resturants and shopping. The hotel is located on the beach--if it weren't for the outlets just down the road--we would not leave the resort property! Everything you need is right there. Do beware of the gift shop though--get your niceties before you arrive or you will pay resort prices for gum, disposable camera and the sort. The hotel is well worth the buck though.
Hilton = Service!!
This Hilton must have two employees for every guest that stays there! Everywhere we went in the hotel, there was a happy and helpful employee just waiting to answer our questions or point us in the right direction. We have 3 children and their "Kids Night Out" and "Kidz Crew" programs are outstanding. They have different activites for all ages all day long. Truely an amazing resort! You have to give this place a try as it was well worth the money and our family had one of the best vacations in years. Thanks to the employees of the Hilton as we will be back in August.
Hilton: Heaven on Earth
Tell everyone you know that we have found "Heaven on Earth" at the Hilton Sandestin Beach in Destin Florida! With a spectacular view over the gulf you can see both the sunrise and sunset!! We had such an incredible stay that our family has already booked again for July 4th. They have an exceptionally friendly staff that just LOVES KIDS! Even as busy as the hotel was last weekend, everyone took the time to help out and give us advice on what to do around the resort and the town. If you get the chance, take a day and visit their Spa (Serenity by the Sea) as my wife bought a full day package and just raved about her experience! See you in July!
Where to begin...From the second we arrived at this fabulous resort to the time we left yesterday, the staff at the Hilton was outstanding! Every year we take a long weekend trip in February to Florida to escape the cold. We usually stay at Marriott's as I am a frequent guest and can usually get free upgrades, however we decided to try the Hilton as we really wanted to stay in a resort on the coast and had just been to Orlando last year. We booked connecting rooms and were even able to upgrade to great beach front views. With the weather turning bad we asked the bell staff what we could do in Destin. Robin was a true delight!! He gave us about 20 different options of things to do in the area. We had a fantastic weekend touring all over Destin and even took our kids to the Gulfarium (what a treat). Kudos to the Hilton and their "5" Star staff as they saved our weekend!
Hilton Sandestin Beach
My wife and I were looking to get away from the freezing cold of Atlanta and were pleasantly surprised to still find rooms available at the Hilton Sandestin Beach. Seeing as this was our first trip to Destin, we relied on our friends expertise on where to stay. They raved about how great the Hilton was and I must say they were 100% correct! What a beautiful resort. Everyone from the front door staff to the waiter in Seagars were FANTASTIC!! Our view over the beach was spectacular and the room was huge. We have even booked a second trip this summer back to the Hilton as this is the ONLY place we will stay! Please tell all your viewers/readers about this magnificent resort in Destin!!
Average hotel with above average prices
My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Sandestin in August, 2002. We booked the Romance package and were suppose to get an ocean front room with champagne and strawberries upon arrival. Our room turned out to be ocean view at best and we had to call about our champagne and strawberries twice. We finally received our treats about three hours after we arrived. Also, the front desk personnel were unfriendly. The room was very spacious, though, and could easily accommodate 6 people. Sandestin is a lovely area. The next time we go there, we plan to book a room in the condos next door to the Hilton.
