: We love this campground. It is on the water, the hosts are cordial and have a positive attitude, the restrooms are clean and the WiFi is available in the campground. The WiFi does have a problem in that in the evening it is difficult to get it to be steady because there must be many people trying to get... More

At first I was irritated as check in was 4pm and our room wasn't ready and it was pouring outside. Once we got to the room I was impressed. Very clean, nice, cozy, huge shower, pool by the ocean, close to everything. We don't regret our hotel decision.

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and this was our third time in the past 6 years. The first two times we visited, we shared the two bedroom villas which were incredible! This time, we booked last minute so we reserved 2 of the deluxe studios. I was very impressed! Very clean! Stand up shower was great... More

The rooms are not that of a 5 star resort, but that is not why we chose to stay here. The bed are comfortable, the staff is nice, the location is awesome. It is very close to all the tourist attractions, but far enough away to be surrounded by annoying tourist The sunset view is amazing. You can rent boats... More

I noticed most of the reviews were given by summer visitors. We found the lodging to be very nice at reduced rates in winter. For us Midwest retired military folks it was a nice retreat from the ice and snow. Planning to return. Wifi not always good in motel room but a short walk to the office/activities room was good...

Have stayed here for several years and loved the place. Upon our recent stay were told they weren't going to allow contractors to stay here anymore. I guess enough people whined and complained about it since we may have booked rooms before they did, and they didn't like it. They should allow retirees and active duty to book rooms months... More

We just spent a week in one of the pet friendly two bedroom villas. We have previously stayed in the campground in our own travel trailer and in a motel unit. The villa was awesome!!! It had everything that we could totally want or need for a weeks stay. The unit was exceptionally clean and no doggie smells from previous... More

This is such a great value for military families. You have access to on site charter fishing at a reasonable price, pool, splash park, boat rentals and pier fishing. At around $120 a night for a "mini condo" (small fridge, stove/oven, microwave, toaster two beds, couch and chair) you can't beat that at all! It is also nice that you... More

I recently traveled to Destin with my family and we reserved two rooms at the Recreation Area. The rooms were very affordable, clean and comfortable for our stay. The Recreation Area is in the middle of all the nearby attractions as well. I would reccomend staying here the property is clean and quiet and very relaxing.
