Room was quite nice, didn't fully get cleaned each day but beds were made and new towels provided. Faced the ocean over the pool area which was very noisy at night, even past pool closing time- not a problem if you sleep with a pillow over your head. Beach was lovely, but it wasn't clear when we booked that the chairs and umbrellas the hotel has set up all cost money to use each day- costly and disappointing.

We were not satisfied with the "BEACHFRONT" that we requested through our reservations. We were told we requested a "BEACH VIEW" even when we presented the front desk staff a copy of the confirmed Credit Card for our room. Upon leaving the hotel thief occurred and the Walton County Sheriff had to be called! We will be following up with our Attorney and send a letter to Hilton corporate and will inform each business partner and relative/friends about this HORRIBLE vacation at Sandestin Hilton!

Some reservations

Pros: Friendly and very helpful staff.
My wife complained that there was no hair dryer ninth room, something we routinely get in less expensive hotels. For the quality of the hotel, the Seagar Restaurant was a disappointment. The $55 New York strip steak I ordered was undercooked and tough. I ordered seasonal vegetables; I have no idea what they were, but I did not like them and couldn't eat them. My wife found the shrimp she ordered too spicy and the spinach stringy and also too spicy. The staff were uniformly friendly and very helpful.

DON'T GO HERE WITH A MOTORCYCLE !!!!! NOT ALLOWED

Hotel was great..... Motorcycles are not allowed on the San Destin resort Condo / Hotel Property. The Hilton will do their best to accommodate you, but you will not be allowed on the property with the bike. Travelocity failed to list that information, we traveled 2 days on the bike arriving in the dark to be confronted by this. Would have been nice to know this info before hand. Will not stay there again as an avid Motorcycle touring person.

Not a great time!

I've stayed at this hotel three times. The last two have been very average to stay the least, I wouldn't have rated the hotel a 5 by any means. The location is great, the pool is awesome and being right on the beach is amazing. However, this last time I stayed at the Hilton it was awful. You can clearly only stay here during "season". My room keys did not work two separate times causing me to go back to the front desk. Their was gnats stuck in the screen of the sliding door (this has never happened before, as if they didn't clean the balcony beforehand, also two bugs in the restroom. The shower was virtually cold water, you could say luke warm at 10 minutes in. I like the area of this hotel so hopefully if I return there is improvement.
