We were here for a wedding. The room was nice. The place is kind of big so it's a little overwhelming and hard to find everything. Next time we will stay in a condo in the beach. We didn't do a condo this time because we were only there 4 days. It's good for a quick visit. Nothing really amazing...

Stayed at the LeCiel 9/5- 9/7 for a wedding that was the same weekend at the Hilton. When I called and made reservations, I told the lady I was attending a wedding at the Hilton and i wanted to know the proximity of it to the Le Ciel. The lady told me that the Hilton sat on their property. When...

Overall the sandestin resort complex is really nice, but the leciel hotel is like the red headed stepchild of the complex. There is no staff on the grounds except to clean, so you have to check in and do everything throught the grand sandestin. The hotel appears nice but you can tell it's ignored, even the door to our room...

Booked this last minute for a conference at another hotel as they were oversold - when I looked at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and the price via rocketmiles.com I was like wow this is great..then I got there and was disappointed to say the least. First you have to go the the Grand Sandestin which is near impossible...

Rooms were pretty clean w the exception of a washcloth that someone decided to use as toilet paper and throw in closet. Maintenance issues everywhere. Seems extremely run down. Pretty view and great pool area. Wish the rest had matched the common areas. Entire resort very under staffed

When you stay at Leciel, you aren't paying for the room. You're paying for the amenities of the Sandestin Beach and Golf Tesort. HUGE place but with free bike rentals and free kayak rentals and access to multiple pools and private beach. The room was average but if we stayed here again, we would get the bay view. Resort view...

Very much enjoyed the experience. Saw several negative comments on here which turned out to be quite unfounded based on my family's experience. Hands down one of the best hotels we've stayed in at that price point. Originally booked 3 nights and ended up booking a 4th. Sunset over the bay is not to be missed. The only disappointing factor...

We have stayed at this resort before and it was always pretty nice. This trip we booked on very short notice so we were just happy to get in. We were put in the LeCiel area which is, I guess, the "base model" or most basic rooms. The check in was very ho-hum and the lady checking us in did...

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...
