Our Take: The massive 2,400 acre Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Fla., is a mini-metropolis in and of itself. Travelers come here for the wealth of activities and amenities — four championship golf courses, 15 tennis courts, more than 20 restaurants, four pools and 7½-mile stretch of beach along the Emerald Coast are just a few of this compound's biggest draws. A stay at this resort also comes with complimentary kayak, boogie board and bike rentals. As for accommodations, you have your pick of villas, townhomes or condos in four property categories — Beachside, Lakeside, Bayside and Village — that all offer different vantage points of the Florida landscape and varying in-suite amenities. Regardless of which digs you choose, recent visitors are quick to praise the pristine beach, the impeccable clean resort grounds and the helpful staff.
