This is a beautiful new resort that raises the bar in Destin and, indeed, all of northwest Florida. From the classic coastal architecture, to the relaxed yet elegant decor, to the professionalism of the staff, to the wonderful swimming pools, to the superior landscaping...The Henderson represents a major improvement over other resorts in the area. The location next to a state park and away from the many high rise condos was especially appealing. It's a place where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy the beach and pools without huge crowds of people everywhere. It's a true luxury experience. It's also a pet friendly resort, which was great fun for our dog. She made a lot of friends among the staff and other guests while we were there. It would be nice if there was an option to self park, but other than that, this hotel is extremely comfortable, relaxing, and a great place to stay at the beach.
