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

We came here to stay for a wedding. We rented a 3 bdrm condo in the Summit. The condo was perfect and very nice and updated. (but you need to bring your own beach towels) It was not the building right on the beach, but we had nice beach views. It was a 5-7 min walk down to the beach.... More

The Tides is overall a pretty good resort especially for families. But be prepared to have to fight for beach area if you want to sit close to the water. The beach chair rentals must have priority over the beach. They set up chairs and umbrellas from property line to property line and get as close to the water as... More

Love this resort. We stayed in the summit and the view was awesome. The place is very well kept. Called for maintenance and they came right away. The beach is so beautiful. Shuttle will take you around resort. Have lots o of things to do.

We are spending our last day here and it has been the best vacation so far. Our condo unit 1509 located in the Tides building was clean, with modern decor and amazing views of the ocean, Destin and the bay. We booked through Gibson Beach Rentals. It was perfect! This building is right on the beach and right next to... More

The resort was excellent..only drawback for us..toooooo far out from Destin...most of our time was spent driving!!!...AND the traffic is always bumper to bumper!!! Next trip must find something closer to the action...fishing, shops, etc...but our condo was AWESOME!!! Had it not been so far away it would have been perfect!!!

Our family stayed at Tops'l Beach and Racquet Resort during a late Spring break. We stayed in a lovely rental in the Summit building. The building itself was centrally located and very quiet. It is made of concrete and we never could hear any neighbors above, below or beside us. We had a great view of the Gulf. While we... More

We stayed at this resort (tennis village) for 4 nights in April 2014. The court maintenance, landscaping, layout of the facility are top notch. Unfortunately, their ranking has been dropped to #13 from #10 this year. There are some areas that need immediate attention. See listing below. Note that I had taken some pictures and are available upon request. 1.... More
