    One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at! The service was outstanding, the food was excellent and the hotel was beautiful. Close to everything. Easy access to the beach. Very few negatives. Like many 4-5 star resorts there are charges for everything extra so just be prepared for that. I wish the family pool and private beach were a little larger because it got a little crowded. I also wish they had more servers on the beach and started drink and food service earlier than 10:30am especially since you can’t bring coolers with you. I feel like those are pretty not picky critiques though! I don’t think I will ever stay anywhere else in Destin!!

    This hotel did not disappoint. We had a “pool view” and were pleasantly surprised to have pool/ocean view. The hotel was very clean, staff super friendly at the pool bar and main inside bar. Sleeping in this hotel room felt more like sleeping at home. It never felt like an actual hotel room. Beds were very comfortable! Food was great. This was overall a fantastic experience!

    Not worth it

    We booked our stay 3 months in advance. When we arrived our room had been given away. We had to argue with them just to get the right room for the second night. The first night I had to sleep on an uncomfortable fold out couch while my wife and son shared a small bed. We couldn’t even unpack our luggage until the second night because we didn’t know what room we would be in or whether or not it would be ready. We were constantly talked down to by the staff. Everything at the hotel was overpriced. I’m not a cheap person but I don’t liked being ripped off. I would say it’s not the worst place to stay but definitely not worth the money.

    Our stay at the Henderson was one of the best vacations we've ever had. The resort was large enough that were able to maintain our distance from others. The walk to the beach was short. The beach was clean and the beach staff were friendly. All the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. There are lots of food choices and all of them are wonderful. We didn't leave the resort at all. We had all we needed on the property. There were a few missing features that were surprising. There aren't any pens/notepads in the room, which would have come in handy because our flights were changed. There was no ice or ice machines, and there was no towel bar in the bathroom. Those are minor things that didn't affect our trip at all. We were just surprised they were missing details. We will definitely be back to The Henderson. It's a great place for families and adults!

    Super friendly staff

    We stayed at the Henderson for 5 days/4 nights. Every staff member we encountered was friendly. The hotel is not right on the beach but it's a easily accessible, short walk. The beach is beautiful, clean, and not overly crowded. The room was clean. The food options were costly and not a great amount of variety. There is a local place, Graffiti, that you can walk to that is low key but has live music as a dinner option. There is also a Alvins Island (store that sells everything you need for the water) directly in front of the hotel that you can walk to if need be. Also, make note of the daily resort fee plus daily parking fee. It adds up. Overall, would definitely recommend.
