I booked here for a convention a business group was having that we were speaking at. We stayed in the LeCiel studios which looked very nice from the pictures. Our conference gave us the option for the leciel studios at $169 per night or the grand sandestin at 350 I believe). We checked in (4 of us- my wife and...

Hotel wasn't as bad as reviews on here said it was. We were upgraded to bay view by simply asking at check in. Speaking of checking in, you cannot check in at actual hotel. You must do so at the Grand Hotel. Ask the guys at the gate when you pull up and they'll tell you which way to go....

My husband and I stayed at LeCiel for 5 nights in June. I reserved through a 3rd party. We thought the hotel was average. Our room was definitely not as bad as some of the reviews would suggest. We had a "resort view," not a bay view. It didn't end up mattering much to us though. I'm sure we would...

Stayed here for 3 nights. It's an older property with small "condo" rooms. I have stayed at a lot of hotels that had bigger rooms. Another Broken Egg is attached to the building and, had really good breakfast and lunch. I would hate to pay resort prices for this property. Didn't see the pool so I can't comment on that....

If you expect good housekeeping when you stay in a hotel move on down the block. The housekeeping was sparatic, inconsistent and managment was unwilling to accomodate the children's nap time saying they had "no control" on the maid service. My daughter asked for the linens and towels herself, made the bed and put the trash in the hall. I'll...

The hotel turns out to actually be studio condos owned by individuals as most of the rest of Sandestin Resort is, and is rented through different agencies. There is no actual front desk staff, so check in as at another location in the resort, but that's ok. Upon arrival to the building, it was very neat and clean in the...

We booked a room at what we thought was the highly rated Sandestin resort. What a disappointment!!! Stay away from here unless you are staying on the Hilton side. What a bait and switch!

We went during a a time when 99% of the San Destin property was booked. The price was the most reasonable for a very busy season. Even though this hotel is a thinly disguised rehabbed motel, we managed to enjoy it for it's splendid views, fine modern furniture and pretty good (drivable) access to the beach and amenities. The beds...

The Le Ciel building of the Sandestin Resort offers "Resort Quality" stays for less money than the main building. "Resort", according to the manager, means NO HOUSEKEEPING, NO ROOM SERVICE and the barest bones of a room. We had to PAY EXTRA for housekeeping!!! We had to change rooms three times to find a toliet that didn't have chipped paint...
