For the fourth consecutive year, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has been awarded the 2017 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site.

Now in its seventh year, the achievement celebrates hospitality excellence that have earned great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, restaurants and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.

“This is a direct reflection of all the hard work of hundreds of dedicated hospitality professionals at Sandestin,” said Mark Hodgdon, senior vice president and general manager at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. “We also wish to thank all of our loyal guests, both leisure travelers and group attendees, who take the time to submit great reviews about their five-star experiences at the resort. Without those great reviews, we would not receive this recognition.”

The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients of the 2017 Certificate of Excellence, which celebrates hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travelers,” said Heather Leisman, vice president of industry marketing for TripAdvisor. “This recognition allows us to publicly honor businesses that are actively engaging with customers and using feedback to help travelers identify and confidently book the right property at the right price.”
