Wyndham Vacation Rentals, has announced that SunDestin Beach Resort & Hotel opened its newest amenity to guests — a splash pad.

The splash pad is open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. for guests of all ages. Children are encouraged to press the yellow button to turn on the water features, which circulate over 40 gallons of water per minute through ground nozzles and water play features that spray from above.

“We’re thrilled to offer guests another exciting amenity to enjoy during their stays,” said Scott Hamblin, general manager at SunDestin Beach Resort & Hotel, a professionally managed Wyndham Vacation Rentals property. “We consistently look for ways to upgrade the property and enhance the guest experience, and the new splash pad does just that, bringing more fun for the whole family. You’d be hard pressed to find all the amenities we offer at SunDestin at other condominiums down the coast.”

The splash pad at SunDestin is next to the Little Cabana Tiki Bar on the Gulf side of the property, complementing the property’s existing outdoor amenities, which include watersport rentals, indoor and outdoor pools and a hot tub. SunDestin Beach Resort & Hotel is situated in the heart of Destin, directly on the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to family-friendly amenities, SunDestin also offers meeting space and wedding packages.
