Fabulous, can't think of words to describe A review of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
My husband & I stayed at the Sandestin Gulf and Beach Resort during May of 2003. We won the trip so we were not sure what to expect since we were unfamiliar with the place. What a great surprise!!! First, the resort is gated so there are not a lot of people running around. We checked into the Inn and received a friendly, warm welcome which was exactly how all employees would act during the stay. The room was great and although our room overlooked the golf course area, my husband & I loved to sit out on the balcony at night and enjoy the breeze. The Village was great little shopping are and although some stores were a bit pricey for me, I did not go on vacation to shop. Oh, you get a crad when you check in that allows you to charge to your room at most places within the resort. It was so nice to not have to keep up with money &/or credit cards. We did borrow bikes one afternoon and rode around the place. We also rented a jet ski and toured the bay while the pilots from the Air Force Base nearby flew overhead-what a rush! We did not take our kids on that trip, but plan to return since the place appears to be very kid friendly. Oh, this may sound strange, but the soap they provide in the bathroom was fantastic. I bought some from the "general store" to bring home and wish I had bought more. All in all, I would definitely give the entire experience 5 stars out of five. Oh, if your are planning to bring kids along, you are really close to Ft. Walton Beach which has a lot of mini-golf and other kids attractions so you can take them to do these things while staying a quiet, relaxing place.
