Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Effie

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, 1 Grand Sandestin Blvd., Miramar Beach, Florida, 32550, USA

Perhaps the most elegant and refined new hotel within Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, this boutique property has coastal chic written all over it, with rooms boasting Gulf and Choctawhatchee Bay views. Stellar restaurants include Ovide and Ara at the rooftop pool lounge, with menus inspired by chef Hugh Acheson. The luxe rooftop pool and lounge is a big draw (check out the panoramic views), as are the sleek rooms.

PROS

  • rooftop pool and lounge
  • restaurants with menu by chef Hugh Acheson
  • great spa

CONS

  • not directly on the beach
