This is our 3rd time to stay here in 4 years. It has become our family vacation. I love this place bc it's right on the beach. We always stay on the 7th floor for the view. This last time I saw dolphins! I was pretty certain I booked a room with 2 beds, but when we got there it... More

We have been staying here since 2001. The best beach and water in Destin. Free WiFi. Chairs and umbrellas are provided. Friendly staff. Gated parking and free movie rental. Family and kid friendly and also great for couples. Free tennis racquets. This is where you need to be.

This was a last minute trip and we accidentally found this place, with that being said.... We stayed in unit 407 and loved it! Nice condo, very organized and clean. Awesome view and right on the beach! Everyone was super nice and helpful, even the umbrella/ chair vendor on the beach. We will be back!

Stayed in unit 523 and the pictures do not do it justice. They replaced the furniture. It was very clean and way more roomier than photos lead to believe. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils and plates, Tupperware, cookware, etc. They shut the pool down promptly at 9 which for a vacations spot makes no sense, no one goes... More

It's like a private beach because its at the end where few people go. Also, the harbor is in view so its the best of both worlds. Nothing can beat the blue and green gulf view from the balcony. The people at the front desk are genuine and kind. Everyone is happy and easy going. The condo was very clean... More

So my family and I just stayed here for 4 days in July. We were in unit 706 and I have some mixed feelings about the unit and building. The pros: amazing view, on the beach and great location. The cons: this is such an old building from the 70s and the decor hasn't changed. It reminded me of "3s... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was great and they offered us a 4th night free. I cannot wait to go back there again and enjoy the beach. it is one of the hotels that is right on the beach which makes it even more convenient.

Really enjoyed out stay at this condo. Will definitely try to visit again depending on the rental time. They offered 4th night free when you booked 3 nights at the time. Now you have to book 6 to get 1 free night. One of the very few condo / hotels that is actually right on the beach. It is an... More

Friends of the family that have been coming to HSRC for 3 years invited us to join them so we did and had a blast. I can see why they enjoy HSRC. I booked over six months in advance. Used Trip Advisor reviews and the Holiday Surf & Racquet club website to find a room. As other reviews note some... More

It had been around 5 years since out last trip to Destin, FL. I looked into the condo's we had always stayed at previously and their prices had jumped beyond what we were willing to pay. As I searched for a new place to stay, I knew we wanted to be directly on the beach but at a better price... More
