Rave Reviews from Our Guests

Serenity by the sea is really the best of the best. My girlfriends and I (a group of 10) visit a few times each year. The world-class customer service is what keeps us coming back each time. This time, it was my birthday and it was the best birthday that I can remember. The private lounge that the staff put together just for our group was phenomenal! Best of all, we didn’t have to worry about bothering other guests trying to relax. We always enjoy ourselves; they must have remembered us from the year before. We love Serenity! Sorry if we’re too loud!” - The Crazy Ladies Group From P'Cola, Pensacola, FL

“I’ve traveled the world and your spa treatments are hands down some of the best that I’ve ever experienced. I can’t wait to come back next year. Next time, I will bring friends and make it a girl’s trip! Can’t wait!” - Abbey, Sacramento, CA

“I had THE most wonderful morning there. The package is FABULOUS and the customer service of each of your professionals was incredible. The best pedicure of my life and I’ve had plenty. Can't wait to come back!!!” - Cyndi Branch Hodges (via Facebook)

“I still feel great after Wednesday’s Transformation Facial, mani and pedi. My skin feels great after using Serenity’s Skin Authority line. Wanna look younger? Go to Serenity!” - Julie McCoy Root Delaney (via Facebook)

“This was the best anniversary present a woman could ever receive! My husband and I loved our Couple’s Massage. My husband is a manly man and was hesitant about the whole spa experience in the first place, and you should have seen the look on his face when his “male” massage therapist escorted him back to the Couple’s Suite; all I could do was laugh. In all honesty, this was my husband’s first spa experience, and he walked out a completely different man. He was actually glad that he ended up with a male massage therapist because he needed the deeper pressure, though the petite little girl I had could’ve hurt him I think...she was so strong! Everyone was so professional and made my husband and I feel so comfortable. We’re coming back tomorrow for pedicures; we’ll see what he thinks about that. I bet he’ll love it, too. Thanks to the entire staff for a memorable experience!” - Jacqueline & Ron, Kansas City, MO

“Everyone from the front desk staff to the estheticians was so welcoming. From the time I booked my appointments by phone, to the moment I walked through the doors, your staff was so courteous and professional. They should all be commended!” - Ashley Marie, Montgomery, AL

“Forget your wedding planning worries... Check out Serenity by the sea, the Hilton Sandestin’s massive 11,000-square-foot spa! Miss out on a massage here and you’re missing out on a piece of paradise! One of the BEST massages I’ve ever had!” - Stacie Francombe, Editor-in-Chief of Get Married (via GetMarried.com)
