Ok for what it is ..
It was nice.. not the nicest resort experience but ok for what we were looking for… Truth be told I knew going in that destin is more of a place where you book a rental house rather than stay at a resort. It just verified what I already knew. Not bad just not what you are looking for on a family vacation . Hotel could use a room renovation overhaul. Felt like it was decorated in the late 80’s early 90’s beach decor .

4/10 Fair

My stay was good with the exception of the major differences in the quantity of the food at Primrose and sea level which was absolutely horrible...I tried twice(breakfast/dinner) both time was equally BAD, the food was flavorless, the description depicted on the menu did not apply to what was serve on my plate....I was promised a refund which didn't happen..I've had the pleasure of vacating Henderson Salamander Beach Resort since 2017 I've made it's my business to travel at lest twice a year....I can say emphatically I will not return. Lack of help should not be and excuse for standards which was not met
