Paradise in Sandestin
From the moment you walk in the lobby and experience effiescent you know you are in a 5 start property! Room is large and comfortably appointed- great bed, shower, fluffy towels and nice toiletry products. We enjoyed the rooftop bar and pool along with other hotel amenities. Quiet and away from the rat race of Destin! Can’t wait to go back!

Dream resort!
We recently stayed at the lovely Hotel Effie Sandestin. The hotel was absolutely 5 star. Everyone we came in contact with were friendly, helpful, and eager to help. The facilities were also amazing. Loved the rooftop pool, and bar area, as well as the gym. The bed was amazingly comfortable, and the coffee in our room was divine.
