Chain hotel with no beach access, but near golf courses and a state park
The Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard sits at the edge of another resort, offering access to golf courses, a day spa, tennis courts, and more. Although this hotel lacks direct access to to public beaches, it overlooks a golf course and is a quick drive from nearby restaurants and shopping.
The Florida Panhandle is also known as the Emerald Coast and offers several hundred miles of beautiful beaches along the Gulf of Mexico.
The Courtyard Sandestin at Grand Boulevard lives up to the Marriott brand's reputation for efficiency and convenience. This 174-room hotel offers a lobby bar, mini market, big outdoor pool, and (average) fitness center. Rooms are spacious, with generous bathrooms, although decor is generally dated and bathroom fixtures are showing their age. Despite some guest complaints about these cosmetic features, rooms do have flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. The location at the edge of another resort means guests have easy access to the Sandestin Resort golf courses, day spa, tennis courts, shopping, and more, and Miramar Beach is a short drive away.
