Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Review

This place is its own little world—with shopping, charter fishing, spas, salons, tennis, water sports, golf, and special events—so it's no wonder newlyweds, conventioneers, and families all find something for them at this 2,400-acre resort. Accommodations are spread across five areas: beachfront, beachside, village, bay side, and dockside. Each of the five neighborhood clusters offers a different feel, with villas, cottages, condominiums, boat slips, and an inn, and all rooms have a view, either of the gulf, Choctawhatchee Bay, a golf course, a lagoon, or a natural wildlife preserve. The resort accommodates tastes from the simple to the extravagant, but the gigantic suites at the Westwinds are a cut above the rest. Baytowne Wharf, the complex's "downtown," has art galleries, a "festival marketplace" of shops and restaurants, and bars that boom after dark, so once you get here, you won't need—or want—to leave.
