Take the Best Family Beach Vacation Ever

Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is a favorite of families because we make things easier for them. As the area’s largest full-service resort located directly on the beach, you can travel between your room and the sand within minutes – helpful when it’s time to get your little one down for a nap, or when your drama-loving ‘tween “can’t wait one more minute!” to dive into the emerald-green Gulf of Mexico.

We Have Parents in Mind

We offer the little things, like cribs and pack-and-plays, beach chairs, towels and umbrellas, a convenient market next to the pool for snacks and food on-the-go. But we offer big things, too, like day and night time kids’ programs offered seasonally, child care services, a variety of kid-friendly restaurants with great kids’ menus, suites that come with bunk beds in a little private alcove. To parents, these things go a long way toward making family vacations enjoyable, relaxing and hassle-free – which is the whole point.

… And Kids, Too

Kids love our offerings here at Hilton Sandestin Beach. There are indoor and outdoor pools, poolside cabanas, beach volleyball, bike riding, golf, tennis, and Destin's best family-friendly attractions, including a zip line, ropes course, water park, aquarium and go-karts. For children over 14, we also offer stand-up paddle-boarding and kayaking on the water.

If your children are between the ages of five and 12, check out our resort’s daytime Kids Krew and our Kids Night Out program (offered seasonally). Kids love these fun-filled programs, which also allow parents a little time off, and the chance to try out our full-service spa, or AAA Four-Diamond restaurant Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, for example. Guests here also have access to babysitting offered by outside licensed and bonded child care agencies.
