I stayed in the summit for 5 nights. The room was nice, open, clean, jetted tub and shower. The ac was set to 70 but never went below 74. We didn't spend much time in the room so at night it didn't bother us and seemed comfortable. Nice small balcony with ocean view. Bed was super comfy. The property is... More

This was our first stay in one of these vacation rentals and we were not disappointed. Given, the decorations and furnishings are based on the individual tastes of each owner, however you rent a specific unit which can be viewed in detail before you book it. So you pretty much know what you get into. The utensils and pots, pans... More

The beach here in Destin is gorgeous! We checked in late- dues to flight schedule- we were greeted by a very cool security guard named Tracey. We were instructed to use the phone for after hours check in and we reached the night staff. We received the code to our room- unfortunately, the room number was not listed and so... More

I rarely book anymore without reading the TripAdvisor reviews. When we booked, we were a little nervous because of the reviews. However, the tips for staying at one of the locations on the beach was a HUGE help. The other buildings are pretty far to actually walk with your gear daily. Make sure you look at your building name when... More

We just returned from several days at the property in a 2 bedroom unit in the Summit tower. The room itself was very clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and the property seemed well managed. Of course, the Destin beaches are beautiful - in my opinion some of the best in the world. I've been to Hawaii, the... More

We stayed here for a week at the end of July. The property is nice. The pool areas are nice. The tiki hut was a lot down though, too pricey and workers were not nice. The room was nice and modern. This surprised me because the entrance area to the lobby of the hotel was not nice at all. The... More

We stayed at Tops'l the location is good. The building and facility is well cared for. The first unit they tried to place us in was very dated, literally straight from "that 70's show" it was really bad. The staff was helpful and moved us to a very nice unit in the Summit building, though we had to pay an... More

I rented a 2 bedroom condo in the 8th floor of the Summit which is not directly beachfront but I still had an ocean view from it. The room was nicely furnished but I did run into a few little issues. My first issue were the double beds and sofa bed, they weren't the greatest. All 3 seemed to sink... More

Destin beaches have best sugar sand outside of the islands! The property is right on the beach. The room was adequately furnished and the beach view was excellent. Tops'l has two large pools that it shares with an adjacent property. There is an adjacent Hilton as well as numerous condos so expect the beach front to be very crowded. There... More

Had a good time but sounds like new management has come in or is coming in. We were using the lights on the putt putt course and maintenance had to come by and tell us that he had to turn off the lights even though the sign said open until 10. It was 8:30. They said new management rules and... More
