The hotel is very new with great amenities including indoor and outdoor pool as well as easy access to the onsite beach. Breakfast buffet is great. Very family oriented with lots of events geared towards kids. The location is actually not that good as traffic nearby is heavy and in a very commercial area full of tourist traps. If you don’t need to stay on the beach would recommend rather looking for something in the Sandestin area. We had a few mishaps along the way as they gave me the accessible room furthest possible from the elevator and after correcting that by changing us to another room, the new room had virtually no water pressure at all in the shower. Being a beachfront hotel (lots of sand) this is obviously a big problem. Management did react albeit slowly and offered to compensate some points (not all). However, they were unable to fix the issue so they offered to look at another hotel for us which after already changing rooms once its obviously very disruptive so we opted to stay. Stay clear of room 517

Room tip: Avoid room 517 due to poor water pressure

Pop up Family trip... so the price was Great for last minute. Clean New rooms! My husband saw the cleaning lady using a toothbrush to clean shower!! That’s serious cleaning! The manager walked around greeting and asking how things were going.
The hotel is not Huge and has Only 4 floors...
I’m only giving 4 stars because “partial view of beach” was miss leading and it’s about a ten minute walk down the side walk to the beach. They do have free parking, No tub shower only. So if your going for a Newly clean hotel, simple, Close to stores and across from an out let mall and close to eating places. This might be just right for you.

Easy access, easy parking, enough to do right here with pool, bars, sitting areas and great beach. But, this is also a great place to base out of for exploring other beaches. Recommend going for a room with balcony overlooking the gulf.

The room had several questionable stains on the floors and wall as well as hairs in the sink.

Not a peaceful or relaxing place to stay. While the gulf view rooms should be a great place to relax and listen to / watch the waves, the extremely loud DJ and social host blared all day. You could hear it in the room with the door closed and even in the bathroom with that door closed. There is no way to relax and enjoy the gulf when the DJ is there.

The towel cards were annoying and only getting one per person seemed cheap.

Great place for family vacation. Will come back if we return here. New hotel different from other older hotels
Around the area. Great staff service and location. If they can have more kids playground area will be a better place.
