Reviewed 23 April 2013

My wife and I stayed here for a couples getaway from Panama City, and she found this hotel on a website. It is located inside Baytowne Wharf, although not near The Village part. However, there's a trolley that runs there which saves on parking and serves as a free designated driver! The front desk concierge was helpful in directing us...

My fiance and i recently stayed at the LeCiel for a quick 2-night weekend stay. We arrived at 11:30pm at night, which (as we found out) meant we actually had to check-in at the Sandestin Grand down the road. Would've been nice being able to check-in AT the hotel itself, but the Grand was so close by that it wasn't...

This is our first time at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. We are staying in Le Ciel, on the first floor. We booked through Hotwire on a last-minute deal. First, I must say the property is very attractive and appealing as a vacationer. Le Ciel is a bit older and smaller, but still comfortable for our needs. There have been...

Stayed here for one night at Le Ciel during a Spring Break trip, for the express purpose of playing golf. Le Ciel itself is a motel directly across from the Links golf course. Rooms and hotel, while clean, seemed very worn and dated. Golf course was well kept, though challenging with a lot of water. The Sandestin complex is huge,...

This Hotel was labeled as a 4 star and I suspect this is because of its proximity to the resort amenities. However, on the property itself, I would only rate this as a 2.5 star based on the lack of hotel services and the front desk open with limited hours. As others have stated you have to check in at...

LeCiel was renamed (from Bayside name) between approximately 2011 and 2013, when it was partially renovated. This old multistory hotel at Sandestin Beach Resort is a rather dark, homely building located right on the bay at the "bayside" side of the resort. Water views are very nice from higher levels, which have tiny balconies overlooking the bay. Rooms are similar...

We booked this because the pictures made it look very modern/updated and we love the resort. We were so disgusted when we got to our room and it reeked of cigarette smoke. We actually ended up changing to a different hotel in the same resort at the suggestion of the staff. Do not stay here!!!

We turned up at 7pm, just after nightfall. The gatehouse guard was unintelligible and from what little he said that was understandable he directed us in the opposite direction to the property.

Leciel was a great stay. We requested to change rooms to have a better view and they were very helpful and accommodating.
