Also known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, Destin is located on the Gulf Coast of the Florida Panhandle in an area deservedly called the Emerald Coast. It is a well-regarded destination for deep-sea fishermen from around the nation, and has miles and miles of pristine beach perfect for watersports enthusiasts and sun worshippers alike.
If you’re at all interested in deep-sea or saltwater fishing, make sure to bring your gear along or rent your own. Nearby Panama City Beach holds the Bay Point Billfish Invitational fishing contest annually, but you can also charter a boat year round. During your stay at a Destin hotel, keep your eyes peeled for many other great activities available on Destin’s beaches: snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing are just a few. And, of course, if you’re looking for a more relaxing beach experience, feel free to pull up a beach chair and let the gentle slap of waves lull you to sleep.
There’s more to Destin than just the beach. The Emerald Coast Science Center will delight kids and adults alike with fun and learning. Gator Beach and Florida’s Gulfarium let you get up close and personal with the alligators, dolphins, and sea lions. You’ll also want to head to the Destin History and Fishing Museum to learn more about the area’s roots.

This will mark our first vacation on the Gulf side of Florida, but will certainly not be our last especially at this resort. My Wife and I have vacationed at several Sandals resorts so we don't often[More]
make a habit of vacationing on the beach in the states, it became pretty obvious pretty fast that this place was the real deal. These people give the same attention to detail that we have experienced many times in the Caribbean. I don't recall having to ask for much of anything, once we got there and into our room we were only in a king room with one bed, for 2 people not a problem but for 2 adults 2 teenagers and a service dog you really need a room with a couple of beds. Talked with Keith the manager of the hotel and he was exactly what I like in someone in his position, HONEST!!! We are full and don't have another room to offer you but I promise to get you a rollaway bed and some linens and make you all more comfortable.
And that's exactly what he did, not only did he have a bed brought to the room he personally delivered the linens for the bed himself and took the opportunity to talk with us and let us know that if they had a cancellation in a room that had 2 queens we were welcome to it. Now That's What I call SERVICE!!!! Not only on the day we arrived, this guy is everywhere the entire time he's at work. His staff from the front desk to the guy working the pool is awesome. The Kitchen staff and the Girls working food around the pool during the day,Awesome... And the food, we ate this food several times and I can tell you it is fabulous. Sooo, I started out to write a few words and got carried away. This is it in a nutshell, If you want a great resort with a fantastic staff, beautiful view and some really great food then stay here, If you don't then stay somewhere else like Myrtle Beach!!!
Thanks to all, we had a really good time
