This “secret jewel” of Destin, Florida was a perfect place to enjoy the one I married 38 years ago. Pampered by the staff, luxurious accommodations, beautiful beach complete with umbrellas and chairs. It’s a unique place for couples to just enjoy a slow pace, lovely room, delicious food, and proximity to local Destin highlights. Definitely recommend for a romantic getaway! We’ll be back!

Henderson Park Inn has the absolute best service personnel I’ve come across. From Justine at the front desk where we began to Dustin at Toes In The Sand (photographed) where we spent our last dinner. Dustin really went above all expectations! At one point, my husband stood to take a pic and his napkin fell. Dustin unexpectedly ran right out with a fresh one. We didn’t even know he was there! The entire facility was clean and filled with fresh scents. Everything we ate was delicious! The fresh breakfast and omlettes made to order didn’t stand a chance on our plates. I think the other guests there during our visit are well worth a mention. We had nice visits with many of them and they added to our enjoyment. Many had been there several times which further confirms the quality of the Inn and its staff. Thanks to all of you there who really care about making your guests feel at home.

This was our 2nd visit to HPI and it was just like I remembered..wonderful! The staff here are so pleasant and sweet and they truly want you to have a great vacation. The breakfast is still fabulous, kudos to Chef Greg and his staff! The box lunch and snacks are great because no one wants to leave that gorgeous beach and view. I didn’t want to ever leave, period. Even when it rains it’s nice! We met some nice folks and got to witness a sweet marriage proposal on the beach. Yes, this is a luxury vacation but you won’t regret it I promise!

when we arrived our loft was not ready and we were treated like royalty. We were given cart blanc to anything we wanted from their restaurant and free bycicles for our stay.
our loft was on the family section of the inn and it was fantastic and elegantly equipped. The Inn has a 2 or 3 restaurants too so you don't need to leave the premises.
our loft had a wrap around porch with a view to the lazy river and pool. the beach was a short walk and you can rent umbrellas, chairs and food service at the beach.
there is also a bed and breakfast on the beach.
it was pricey but worth it.

For years, friends have recommended Henderson Park Inn as a wonderful place for a couple’s vacation. To be honest, our hesitation has always been the price. My wife and I live only three hours from most major gulf beach destinations and we are very familiar with Destin and the surrounding area. We have enjoyed many wonderful homes and condos along the gulf at lower rates but decided to trust our friends and experience Henderson Park Inn.

We booked for three nights in an executive room for July. Upon arrival, the staff from the valets to the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. Once we checked in, a hotel representative showed us around and introduced us to many of the HPI amenities, which was a nice touch, while our luggage was taken to our room.

We were too late to enjoy the complimentary afternoon happy hour but a server setting up a beach dining experience for a couple offered to get me a drink from the restaurant, which was not close to where we were near the beach/fire pit area. The server’s name was Dustin and that would not be the last time he made our stay special. He is truly a valuable asset to HPI and embodied the spirit of HPI’s commitment to quality customer service.

Our room was spacious and actually located on the first level near the restaurant and front desk. We were initially concerned about the location but that concern dissolved and we actually enjoyed the convenience of stepping out of our back door to the open patio area. Noise was never an issue for us as the restaurant seems to wrap up serving around 9pm and the Inn is overall fairly quiet at night.

The beach was never crowded and the beach service was nice for midday refreshments. Paddle boards and kayaks are available for use but be sure to sign a waiver for early and they are first come first serve. The boards don’t sit around unused for long and you do share them with the Henderson Resort guest as well.

We dined at the Beachwalk Cafe within HPI and it was fantastic. Again, Dustin was our server and made excellent recommendations and even took a few photos of us on the patio at sunset. We dined outside and it was very nice to enjoy the open air atmosphere. Personally, I would recommend outdoor seating for Beachwalk reservations. Also, be sure to make those reservations early; it is a very popular restaurant in Destin. We also dined across the street at Henderson Resort and enjoyed our experience their as well and found it to be a family oriented version of HPI that we can hopefully bring the kids to at some point in the near future.

Be sure not to miss happy hour on the patio. Not only are drinks wonderful, but it is a great time to interact with other guests or just enjoy the view with your significant other. Several drink options (beer, wine, fruity mixed drinks, etc.) are available during the hour. Our hour was 4-5pm but I am told time vary depending on season.

Breakfast is complimentary and wonderful. Options are numerous and you will definitely find something you will enjoy. It is buffet style and once you fix your plate, you can step out on the patio to enjoy the morning breeze and beautiful gulf views.

The boxed lunch available must be ordered the night before and the options are basic sandwiches and salads. It’s not an impressive lunch but it is adequate for a basic midday meal. They will also have soup available in the dining area that Was wonderful both days we had lunch.

Overall, Henderson Park Inn was a wonderful experience and we look forward to many future visits. Thank you Henderson Park Inn staff for making our stay such an awesome experience!

Room Tip: First floor rooms open to patio, second floor have balconies and third floor rooms have smaller Juliet balconies.
