My husband and I have been renting at Crystal Sands for the past 17 years. We've always liked the condominiums because of being directly on the beach. We decided to book with Crystal Sands for the Fourth of July and we were given unit 204B I have never been so disappointed in a property. The minute we walked in the... More

My husband and I stayed in 204W with our two daughters (13 & 10). Kitchen - decent size. Only used it for breakfasts and lunches. Didn't do any major cooking - although we could have. Stocked with pots, pans, utensils, plates, cups, bowls, glasses, etc. Bathrooms - this unit came with two half baths (one attached to master bedroom, one... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Crystal Sands several times in the past and never had any problems. This year we decided to do a family vacation, big mistake. We stayed in 301B West. The condo was advertised as 2 bedrooms & loft, this was very misleading. It was a 1 bedroom, loft & twin beds in the... More

We were moved from a second floor unit close to the pool that was noisy due to kids running around above us and also being right by the pool to 301B which is a third floor two story end unit. Georgeanne was a lifesaver! It was so peaceful and lived up to what we needed in a vacation- relaxation!!! The... More

This is the third time in 5 years that my family had stayed at Crystal Sands. I would rate our first two experiences as "good". Our most recent stay was a different story. The carpet in our condo was disgusting. It was all matted down and stained. The furniture in the bedroom was outdated. The mattress was old and stained.... More

Nice to open patio doors and walk onto the beach. But could not really use patio because the chairs provided are both broken. One sliding door screen is rusted and broken. The carpet is absolutely filthy, with small blood stains , cigarette burns . When we opened the pull out bed in the living room we found a large spill... More

This was our first trip to Destin and we absolutely loved this condo! We stayed in 111B and it was on the first floor. It was very clean and updated with a gorgeous view of the water. We will definitely stay again on our next family vacation.

The view and the beach is very nice but the rooms are very dirty. Our ceilings fans are 80% covered with dust,the air vents are gross and we found roaches in the kitchen and bedrooms. The chairs outside are missing legs. Overall the room is dirty and it could use a update. This is our 17th coming to Destin and... More
