    Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa
    Miramar Beach, FL
    #3 in Best Hotels in Destin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 2706 reviewsTripAdvisor (2706)
    Free WiFi

    You can truly discover the meaning of relaxation at this expansive Miramar Beach, Florida, resort. Visitors particularly enjoy the Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort and Spa's monumental size – the property comprises four golf courses, 15 tennis courts, a world-class spa and a long stretch of white sand. The resort provides everything guests need for a fun day at Destin Beach, from beach chairs and sunscreen to volleyball, paddleboards and the beachfront Sand Bar. Meanwhile, this Hilton's guest rooms are beachy chic with bright color palettes and high-end amenities like minifridges, flat-screen TVs and private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Despite the resort's respectable size, the large number of guests who flock here during peak seasons (spring through summer) can lead to long lines and crowds. No matter the time of year you go, Hilton Honors members can always use or earn points for complimentary perks like free room upgrades.
