We spent last week in #302. It was our first time in a condo. Our friends visit Destin once or twice a year and have stayed in the Emerald Towers before and when they asked us to join them this year they selected #302 because it had two king beds. They also felt the unit they stayed in previously needed... More

Let me begin by saying that we have been staying at The Emerald Towers for almost 10 years. We love it and my feelings about this unit don't change that. However 1001 has been the least favorite of all the units we've rented. This unit is not being well maintained and definitely showing its age. We found mold in the... More

#1503 (now #1506 I believe) is a very nice penthouse condo. Yes emerald towers is older, but this penthouse is decorated nice but will has a nice family feeling. My family had 4 teens and there was ample room for all us to enjoy our own space. The two separate living rooms was nice for that reason. The large section... More

We stayed in Unit 705 of this aging condo and I have to say that we have stayed in better units. I agree with one of the previous reviewers. This particular unit needs new mattresses, pillows and linens immediately. And would it really hurt to have extra toilet tissue and paper towels on hand without having to ask for them?... More

We have stayed at Emerald Towers several years in a row and have only suffered one disappointment: Our unit last year had a/c problems, BUT we were promptly moved to another unit with no problems. My opinion of this condo building is that ResortQuest, now Wyndham, does not require owners to keep their properties up to snuff like they should.... More

Last week, my extended family of 10 rented penthouse #1503 and condo #501. Penthouse gorgeous, roomy, & totally ok--except ice maker did not work! BUT, unit 501, though lovely in appearance (decor) had MANY inadequacies. 1) bed not made in master bedroom; 2 calls to desk finally resulted in sheet set for US to do job of housekeeping; 2) several...

We stayed in a different unit last year and loved it! It was beautiful, so we decided to stay in the same complex. When we walked into #403, we were extremely disappointed. There were so many things in disrepair... One of the worst things was the patio furniture. The cushions were severely stained with the foam actually coming out....not anything... More

We stayed in Unit 705 the week of April 1, 2013. The unit was very dirty, especially the floors, rugs, and appliances. Plus, the dishwasher was broken and Sterling Resorts did not respond to my request for repair. There were large black hand prints on the master bathroom door and black soot blew constantly from the ceiling vent in the... More

We stayed in unit #1103. It is an older building, but our condo was wonderful. Clean & bathrooms were updated compared to the pictures. Bedrooms were big, kitchen was clean, only thing missing was measuring cup and spoons. There was a washer/dryer that was nice to have in the unit. Ample bath towels were included. Kids stayed in 2nd bedroom... More
