Great hotel in perfect location!

We booked last minute and couldn’t have planned it better if we tried. The hotel is exceptional. Balcony room overlooked the gulf and tgerof was a beautiful courtyard that made you forget you were at a hotel. From the front desk staff to the beach staff, everyone was exceptionally nice and helpful. The location of the hotel on the beach made it feel like you had your own beach too. Everything was perfect and we can’t wait to go back!

Well with the pic on this web site, I thought the room I got was on the beach with beach view and it wasn't. They have two building, one on the beach and one behind it. We were kind of sad about that!!! But other than that nice hotel and very clean.

worth it

Pros: staff, beach, ocean view
Location: Fort Walton didn't seem like the most thriving place but there was enough for our short stay. We didn't venture out too much.
First time to Ft Walton Beach, my wife, two kids, and I had a great time and the Four Points Sheraton was excellent. The staff was the best, we had everything we wanted and they treated us like kings. Everything was perfect from the beach chairs and umbrella waiting for us every morning right on the water, food and drinks served on the beach, outstanding breakfast buffet, top floor room with a gulf view. The hotel tabs made it super easy for us to get whatever we wanted without having to keep cash and the kids asking for money. We never even drove the car anywhere for the 3 days, we just walked to the local restaurants and gift stores. We were lucky and had perfect weather and the waves were great for body surfing. On our drive home i met some folks at a gas station who went to Panama City and had double red flags the whole time, bummer. I also preferred our beach as well because just to the west the beach was over crowded in front of the big condos. In all it was perfect for our short 3 night get away.

Beautiful view of the beach, and great staff

Pros: Staff was friendly and the set up was really nice. Great location
Cons: Price of breakfast
Location: Everything you can think of is nearby. Perfect location
The view was stunning from our room. There was easy access to the beach, and it wasn't overcrowded. The staff was extremely professional and nice. I think the only negative would be the price of the breakfast....other than that, it was a great experience.

Nice beach and pool

yes hotel is on the beach, but for what they are charging, it's not worth it. The shower was so gross, full of mildew. The towels had stains on them. I felt gross there. Thought it would be somewhat nice since I paid $150/night. The staff was extremely rude. Upon arrival, the staff did not explain anything to us as if we had been there a 1000 times. Just handed us a map of the grounds. Didn't explain anything. Another guest came in while we were checking in and an older lady explained everything to them. The outdoor restaurant & snack bar was closed. I feel they should not have amenities listed if they are not open. When I asked for an extra towel, the cleaning lady made a joke under her breath to another staff member. When my husband looked at her she just smiled. I cannot believe how rude they were. I will never stay there and will tell everyone I know not to stay there. Don't waste your money on supporting this business.

Great vacation!

We decided to go on a last minute trip to destin, and booked the first thing we saw, we unfortanly it was awful when we got there. So I did some looking around really quick and found four points. They were able to accommodate us quickly and smoothly! The hotel was SOO nice and smelled wonderful when you walk through the doors. The staff was super friendly and was very helpful. When we got to our room it was perfect. The bed was super comfy and they were able to accommodate us with a crib and a roll away for our children. The view was absolutely breathtaking and we loved how you could literally walk out of your hotel and you're on the beach! The pool was nice and always super clean! The price for our stay was very very reasonable! My family and I will definitely be back!

Travelocity didn't book my room

Drove 600 miles to find out Travelocity didn't book my room, so didn't get to stay there thanks to them, all I got was a 2 hour phone conversation with 3 different people to finally get a refund, and they were sorry for any inconvenience they they may have caused, I was so happy😡

Wonderful Beach Getaway

Cons: Consider providing more activities for kids, the one splash pool is not enough and it's poorly located just outside of peoples rooms.
Location: There is a pier nearby, I think it's $2 to go out on it. Looks to be a popular fishing spot but we didn't go out on it.
Overall this is an excellent hotel which provided a great family resort environment. Overall our stay was great except for the ants in our room on the 2nd night. The staff was very helpful in resolving the issue and even upgraded us to a beachfront room. The rooms are very nice, beds are comfortable and the staff kept them very clean. I would suggest bringing your own bath soap, the soap providing in the shower dispenser doesn't seem to lather up very well and I would have preferred they provide bar soap like many other hotels. I enjoyed the onsite restaurants, which made it easy to grab a quick bite and not have to leave the beach. Make sure you eat at the Tiki Bar restaurant, the food was amazing....try the fish tacos they were fresh caught Mahi. On Wednesday they had BBQ and Brews and the bar in the main lobby, they served up some local brews and some pretty decent BBQ. The staff at the bar made it a very fun experience. The hotel is located in a great location on the beach and it's only a short driving distance to other nearby attractions. Destin was only about 5 miles away so if you can't find what you are looking for in Ft. Walton then it's only a short drive. We chose to stay in Ft. Walton to avoid any potential spring breakers, it worked out well... the beach was full of families and we didn't have to deal with crazy beach parties. I think the hotel provided excellent value for the price and would consider staying here again.
