We've been coming for years to this complex. It's family friendly, right on the beach, & offers beach service. Most condos are newly updated & they are currently renovating the lobby to update as well! Staff is friendly & offers amenities like tennis courts, heated pool, & shuffle board.

Stayed at Holiday Surf and Racquet for the last 7 years. We are smokers. This past summer we were told no smoking any where on the property except by the BBQ pits which are located in the middle of the black paved parking lot. I understand not smoking at the pool. But as far as sending us to the parking... More

The best stretch of beach in Florida. Crystal clear water. Great location. Gated parking. Nice staff. Free WiFi that works. Great for couples or for families. Umbrellas and chairs provided on the beach. Look no further for you beach get away.

My family and I stayed in condo #505 and we loved it! Everything is nicely updated and a beautiful view of the ocean :) We loved going to the beach and walking along the water. We saw dolphins and it was beautiful! We would recommend this condo to everyone it was a wonderful experience

We had an excellent stay here. It's an older building, right on the beach. The nice thing about a condo such as this is that the owners vacation there themselves too, so it can be more comfortable and homey than a hotel. There are nice charcoal grills in the parking lot. Tip: we found a supermarket a couple miles down... More

Thank you for your review. We our proud of our "little piece of Heaven" right on the sugary white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we are an older building, we are currently involved in a full lobby, pool, game room, and common area remodel. Also, we are working on replacing many of our doors and windows and porte...

We enjoyed our vacation at the holiday surf and racquet club. It was very nice to sit on the balcony and see and hear the ocean. The room was clean and I can't say that I had any complaints. Our vacation was for seven nights and on the first day I injured my foot and stayed in the room most... More

My husband and I stayed in condo # 320 this year. We always stay here when in Destin but we stay in different units each time. 320 has been newly renovated and is very nice. Each unit has a balcony that overlooks the beautiful beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The staff are always ready to help and are friendly.... More

The kitchenette is stoked with with basic items necessary to cook and serve most meals. The pool area is private and clean. Beach access is very convenient and beach chairs and... More

A few visitor critiques/negatives, let's get those out of the way. First, the game room could use some work as it only had a foosball table & an out-of-order air hockey machine. The community bathroom needs renovated (it's a little creepy). Unfortunately, the unit my sister & her family stayed in desperately needs renovated, the online pictures were deceiving, &... More
