Service was great. Our server was a a older male. He was a great server. It was real busy but took care of us like it was a normal day. They have a bar outside waiting for you before you get inside with a great view. They know it's going to be a while so they get you placaid with... More

My family stayed in #50 and I asked to have the carpet cleaned before we arrived because I have an asthmatic child and they did just that and more to make sure the place was clean for us it was way more prettier than I thought it would be. We will definitely be comin back. It was like home. THANKS... More

Perfect beaches! Sweet little condo with Plenty of room. Easy access to beaches and grocery stores but still far away from the bright city to see the stars at night. Can't wait to get to go back! The water was clear as a pool and the weather was perfect when we were there. Its amazing how quickly Destin is growing.

The condo was well equiped and we had a spot by the pool. The beach was across the street and is always beautiful. The wifi was the only downer. The signal was not stronge . I called a couple of times and the office did not seem concerned. It was diffucult to find the signal to sign on, and then... More

Family friendly great views from unit 3. We had a great time. The start was very friendly, out unit was really clean and welcoming. I'm glad we chose gulf winds east over the high rise condos in the area it was less crowded and felt more like home and we still had everything we needed for amenities. I highly recommend... More

Been coming here since the 90's. Love the location for being off the beaten path (Scenic Drive). Across the street from the ocean. Pool. Updated Condo Unit #43. We stay for a few months. This is a good central location for golf, shopping, and dinning. We have stayed in 6 different units at GWE. Not all the units are in... More

The condos were right across the street from the beach, the beach area was not crowded at all. There was also a pool in the center, very warm, did not feel refreshing on hot days. The condos were nice, two bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, nice kitchen and dining area. I would love to stay here again!

We love Gulf Winds East condo #25! Our friends use to own it and it was always clean and tidy! For the other condos (we've also stayed in #3): Usually, the kitchen is clean and bathrooms, etc, but the bedding and furniture does need a little updating, and looked rather "dingy." We love the location and the pool (even though... More

These were nice condos. They're designed like town homes, so living area and kitchen are downstairs and bedrooms are upstairs. I think some of the units offer a gulf view; however, we had a view of the pool. To get to the beach, we had to walk around to the front of the units and cross the street. Pictures of... More

I have come to Destin for the last 25 years and have never had such a bad experience at ANY condo! We decided to go during off-season hoping to enjoy a little piece and quiet. Quiet, maybe, peace, NO! The part time "residents" (snowbirds) were about as rude as they possibly could be. They complained about the fact that we... More
