Only problem was the cleaning staff.

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Had a room for 2 1/2 days, not once did our room get cleaned. They we're even outside our door when we left, and they watched us leave. Then one got an attitude when we requested some items we were out of because our room hadn't been restocked.

Great location...nice, calm and quiet

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Very quiet laid back resort. I loved our bay view and the pool area. Room kinda had an odor I guess from the bay but nothing you can't get over. Room service never came till we left. Overall ...for the price, I will definitely use this resort again.

My stay was a quick overnight business trip. I would certainly consider the Hotel for a beach vacation.

Reasonable pleasant enjoyable

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: It is in the center of a complete resort
Cons: The telephone kept flashing that I had a message. The tv remote needed batteries
Location: Everything in the world is in the resort or just outside the gates.
Very good time. Nice room. The lowest priced room at a large resort. As a budget traveler this is ideal. Beach acess is a distance but a shuttle service is provided as well as parking lot. Golf country club is at door.

Location is great, room not so much

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: The view from the bay.
Cons: Everything aforementioned.
Location: The resort area is spectacular, lots of entertaining, outlet shopping mall, the best area of Destin.
The room was clean when we arrived for a two nights stay. The air conditioning was defective, there is no room service and no room maiden at all (meaning no clean towels, no new coffee capsules, no new clean linens, no bath room cleaning). The resort area is amazing, but the hotel room needs improvement.

Bayside at San Destin

Posted Feb 13, 2015
Pros: Great service and location.
Cons: Tend the the rooms more frequently.
Location: The beach is a short drive away. Can be seen as a mini Disney world with many different restaurants to dine in, bars to drink at, and gift shops.
Everything was wonderful, from the balcony all the way to the bathroom. I walked into a tidy and cleanly kept room. I did however have to call room service to exchange towels and tend to the bed even though we were practically gone all day, other than that I had no problems. It is very beautiful and you have your own private beach area just for those staying at the San Destin Hotel. The resort is amazing and comes with the areas very own private restaurants, bars, arcade, gift shops, spa, golf area and fitness center. I didn't see everything during my stay but it was somewhat enough. Plan your trip around the holidays and be sure to bring your wallet because it can get really expensive dining at the Resort. It can be seen as a upgraded version of the Villages in Florida.

Water View Extraordinaire

Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: The spaciousness and cleanliness.
Cons: Staff on hand.
Location: Restaurants and shopping right in the same complex.
Our room was great and the view from our private balcony was beyond awesome. The only drawback was beyond the control of the hotel, it was freezing. Our room was not just at the water, it was over the water. There were only 2 things that kept me from giving it an overall 5. One of those is not really fair. The hotel is on the bay and now I know why I like one on the ocean better, waves to lull me to sleep. But the real drawback, no staff. You check in at the Grand and then drive over to this hotel. There is no staff there at all except for the maintenance staff. If you have an emergency or need something, such as in the middle of the night, you have to call the Grand. I prefer having someone closer by. Otherwise, the hotel is fabulous. I still recommend it.

Room was excellent. Had a gorgeous view from a private balcony. I would definitely stay here again. I'm already planning another visit.
