We stayed here during Spring Break. We usually go to Panama City Beach but wanted something quieter this year. Found a great deal on expedia and thought it was too good to be true, many similar places add on huge resort fees and cleaning fees but this place did not, so we took a chance and booked it. We were... More

1510 was one of the penthouse units and the view was ahh-mazing! Very nice decor and all the beds were so very comfy. We did not use the pull-out but it seemed to be fairly new. The only item we brought and used from home was the muffin pan. Bedding, towels etc were more than adequate. Having a washer/dryer is... More

My master king bed was a very comfortable and both bathrooms were updated & huge! The condo was well stocked for large meal prep and they provided... More

My husband and I were in town for the weekend of the Destin 50 (50-mile race on the beach) and stayed in a hotel-room style condo (room # A0507) in the Summit. It was AWESOME and completely surpassed our expectations. The room was BEAUTIFUL, the view of the ocean/trees/pool from the wide balcony was gorgeous and the whole property is... More

We stayed at The Summit part of the resort. Had a little walk to the beach but we didn't mind and there was also a shuttle if we chose to take it instead. Our room was very clean. Had a large bathroom with jetted tub. Our view was really pretty. Didn't have full beachfront, but could see the ocean, pool,... More

The wife had been to this resort many times growing up, so she suggested that we give it a whirl as adults. We stayed a week, and had an absolute blast. The Tides is beachfront and gives an absolutely breathtaking view of the Gulf's emerald green waters. Enjoying our morning coffee and watching the sunrise was one of our favorite... More

My family has been coming to Tops'l Resort for over 25 years. This Thanksgiving, we had a big family reunion at Tops'l (people ranging from 88 years old to 10 months old) and it is the perfect spot for all ages. My family is very active so the tennis courts, heated pools and easy access to the beach kept us... More

I have been going to Destin/Miramar Beach area for many years and have stayed many places up and down the coast. The Tops'l Resort is in a quiet area, yet close to many restaurants. My fiance and I stayed in a "suite" in the Summit building. It was clean, nicely furnished, but really just a hotel room. We had a... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the condo. The condo was very nicely decorated and clean. It has a big shower and a jacuzzi tub. The beds and couches are very comfortable. When we arrived the staff was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The airport is about 27 miles away which cost us... More
