We booked a room at what we thought was the highly rated Sandestin resort. What a disappointment!!! Stay away from here unless you are staying on the Hilton side. What a bait and switch! We come into the property and are greeted at the security gate and given. Directions to the Grand Sandestin Hotel. (Listen carefully cause a few wrong...

We went during a a time when 99% of the San Destin property was booked. The price was the most reasonable for a very busy season. Even though this hotel is a thinly disguised rehabbed motel, we managed to enjoy it for it's splendid views, fine modern furniture and pretty good (drivable) access to the beach and amenities. The beds...

The Le Ciel building of the Sandestin Resort offers "Resort Quality" stays for less money than the main building. "Resort", according to the manager, means NO HOUSEKEEPING, NO ROOM SERVICE and the barest bones of a room. We had to PAY EXTRA for housekeeping!!! We had to change rooms three times to find a toliet that didn't have chipped paint...

I loved this hotel. The beds were comfortable and the room was soft blues with brown accents. It also had a mini fridge and microwave, which you never get unless you pay for a suite. The lobby was beautiful. We did visit during off season, but there was never anyone at the desk and unclear check out locations. The housekeeping...

I was a little intimidated by the reviews when I was originally booking at this hotel, but once we got there it really wasn't a bad place to stay at all. I'm glad we gave it a chance. For what we paid you definitely can not beat that price considering the location. We were traveling with children so of couse...

I booked this on the internet. The website makes this place look way better than it really is. As in other reviews, you must check in at the Grand other side of the resort. That isn't too bad, but you sure don't get a feel of the real environment until you drive all the way over to LeCiel. I should...

Made reservation at le Ciel in late 2012. Sorry to report it was very disappointing. Let me start with the Le Ciel which looks quite beautiful online but is really quite a dump. The pool picture must have been shot with a special camera because it's nothing close to the picture. I booked a suite there, but decided to change...

My wife and I stayed here earlier this year, and I gave it a pretty good review. However, this time, I was a bit disappointed. Why? Well for one, we had to check in on the other side of the entire resort at The Grand. While it was nice to go in that beautiful hotel, it was out of the...

My husband and I booked through the Sandestin Resort and were told we would be in either the Grand or LeCeil. Ended up in the latter and were very disappointed. It is the oldest hotel, has clean rooms but in great need of renovating. We looked at the first assigned room but asked to be moved. It was on the...
