We were sooooo looking forward to the Christmas holiday with our family and we had a wonderful time as we love each other and we love Destin however the Penthouse was very disappointing. We rented this 5 bedroom because we needed the space. It advertises that it sleeps 14. The master bedroom closet has been converted into a bedroom with... More

Stayed in 906 with my daughter and son-in law and twin 10 year old grandsons. This property was great and will be sure two go back. The pictures don't do it justice and loved the private elevator. 906 St Maarten is right on the beach. Walking distance to the Back Porch Seafood restaurant great place to eat. The weather was...

We played tennis twice and the courts are great. We stayed in a 3BR, 3BTH with an underground parking garage. We loved the accommodations, needed nothing but food while we were there. We stayed at the St. Lucia middle building and everything was clean and worked properly. We enjoyed the bar on the beach, sand was clean and puffy, and... More

We had a wonderful stay. We stayed in the penthouse. It was beautiful. The only downside is the layout of the upstairs master bedroom. It was strange. We had a great time. I recommend eating at McGuire's Irish pub. Order the steak.it was fantastic.

We rented condo 908 in the St. Marteen building. Loved the balcony, nice furnishings and floor plan. The best surprise was taking the elevator from the garage and realizing it was taking us directly in to the condo! Just realize that this is a condo complex, not a resort hotel. Bring your beach towels, make sure you take your key... More

Beautiful resort! We had 3bd, 3 bath. Furnishings were large, well crafted, incredible, classy, obviously expensive, not at all gaudy in our condo. High postered beds with about 8 inch diameter posts. Of course, very clean! Everything impeccable. The only thing I regret is, we were in one of the back bldgs overlooking the large pool plaza and ocean. Next... More

We had a great visit. The unit was clean and in great working order other than the fan in the master bedroom which was stuck on slow speed. I did not report it until we left. I did ask for another key fob which was delivered within a few hours. The pool area and beach were beautiful and well kept.... More

I would like to make a list of all the things wrong with this unit. Florescent lighting fixtures made it feel like a factory. Gold trim everywhere Appliances are old and white and not well kept Counters are composite materials and have obvious water damage and dimpling Sinks in kitchen and restrooms are old and stained. Restrooms had to have... More

We stayed here for 4 days with family in penthouse 1 in the St. Lucia building. My in-laws rented it through VRBO. Nice resort with lots of options. The beach was beautiful. The only downside was that you can't put a tent up on the beach, which we were not told of when my in-laws rented it. Other than that... More
