Location wise, this place is ideal for golfers. However, the beach isn't much of one save for the summer, and even then, there's a lot of Jelly Fish around. The town of Destin has a beautiful touristic area and the resort is situated close-by. There's good service and the property is well maintained.

Beautiful place. The staff are awesome and there is so much to do there. Total recommend! But you do require a car to get around as it's in a large gated community. The beach is shared with the community so seating is limited but worth it and another pool is located at the beach.

What a great property! Club Intrawest does a great job maintaining this location. The rooms, pools, lobby, etc. are first class. The decor is very upscale and the service is just right. The location is in the Sandestin resort. Making it convenient to the beaches, restaurants, and retail. The kids will love walking through Baytown, participating in water sports or...

In April I wrote about our experience with the property after trading our Marriott Aruba week and finding out that we weren't getting what we expected. Upon our return I tried to write a review but found out that since I had written a pre trip review I couldn't write an actual trip review for some time. So this is...

Overall this place was nice and comfortable. We enjoyed it because it wasnt busy... It is not a large high rise condo like across the highway on the beach, but it very close to the beach. They have a shuttle or a quick drive to beach. The place only has like 75 untis total. Additionally, there is a wharf that...

We have been members with Club Intrawest for 20 years, this was our first visit to Sandestin. We were not disappointed, the property is very nice and well located away from the noise of the highway, but only a few minutes from Miramar Beach. We visited in the last half of September and the weather was great, but with the...

We went for the 4th of July and it was nice. You could tell they were changing things up. The place definitely needs a renovation. The busses took forever so we drove everywhere ourselves. Loved the space we had in the condo.

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the space in your Vacation Home. 4th July is the busiest time for us and the resort and the shuttles do get very busy. We were also right in the middle of our Summer Family Fun activities, which were a blast! We are continuously making improvements to the club, not...

Stayed in August 2016 in both a studio and a large two bedroom apartment. The accommodation was very good and the beds were enormous and very comfortable. I found the shuttle service quite good but it did finish early out of season! The Intrawest Accommodation is very near to the Harbour area so it is an easy walk if it...

Thank you Laura C. for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the beds! The location of Embarc is so close to all of the action at the harbor and Village, walking is a breeze. We have plenty of umbrellas at our reception desk just in case of rain. We hope to see you and your family again soon. Regards...

We had an amazing time there. It is a very family oriented, the room was amazing, the kids had their own and us two with a nice big kitchen and living room in between. The beach is not far and is spectacular. Go to the marina and enjoy the fiesta by night and go visit the village, very nice. We...

Thank you for your review. We do have the most spectacular beaches! It sounds like you and your family took advantage of everything we have to offer here. Taking the complimentary kayaks out on the bay is also a lot of fun, as is touring the resort on bikes. The dinner cruise alone is fabulous; getting to watch the fireworks...

Condo was amazing. Beautiful location and wonderful accommodations. BUT don't let them fool you with the tram system. It's a mess and the drivers are rude. We waited at the marina bar and grill and tram stop for over an hour in the rain. Tram is suppose to run every 30 minutes. When we called San Destin, the desk told...

Management response:

Thank you for sharing your feedback. I am delighted you found our resort and accommodations wonderful. We certainly do agree with you! I was disappointed to hear the tram service did not meet your expectations. The shuttles run on a continuous loop, approximately every 30 minutes. Obviously an hour wait is far outside that timeframe and not acceptable. I am...
