“Needs renovation”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Turned on the shower and the water smelled like rotten eggs (sulfur). Shower didn't drain so that didn,t help the smell, we called the front desk and their solution was to leave the water running for 20 mins.... I didn't pay for the room since it was a free couple's retreat paid by my husband's job but i will not be returning to this hotel EVER AGAIN, even if it is free!

We stayed in a Bayou unit for our 40th wedding anniversary, our first visit to Sandestin. We had upgraded to a premiere unit rather than classic. The unit was extremely dated with many interior problems needing addressed. Jammed drawers in the kitchen and bathroom, a coat closet with bifold door that did not function thus eliminating use of the closet, and filthy throw rugs in the bathrooms when we arrived, which we were told was the responsibility of the owner of the unit. Could not use furniture on screened porch because it was filthy, and were told that was the owners responsibility. Could not open the door on the screened porch to go outside due to piled up leaves and pine needle droppings, and were told that was up to the homeowners association. The very old and dated pinch pleat draperies in the bedroom and living room needed replaced very badly. The kitchen supplies were lacking, no collendar to drain anything, no mixing bowl although there was a mixer. We have stayed at MANY condos in Florida and this kitchen was bare bones. The unit had obviously experienced a leaky roof from stains on the ceilings and even some water stains going down the wall. It would be nice if someone made an effort to take care of the stains. Overall disappointed but we are learning that this individual owner situation at all condo's is the luck of the draw. We have had some excellent and some poor. Last summer at Perdido Key we rented a beach unit, and none of the blinds with a view of the ocean would open. They did refund $200 to us because of the problem, but this did not make up for not being able to have our beach view. Real estate companies renting out condos should take responsibility for holding homeowners to some kind of guidelines, and inspecting condo units frequently for repairs, etc. Someone needs to be looking out for renters. Thank heavens the majority of condo units we have rented have been owners who take pride in their property.

Room Tip: Search trip advisor for people who specifically name the unit number that they stayed in and that th...
