I took a chance & called the resort to see if they had any rooms available. We were lucky enough to book this at the last minute. It was definitely worth the price. We stayed one night in a king room that was clean & spacious. Didn't realize the check in time was 4 p.m. so we walked around the... More

My parents bought a timeshare here back in the 80's. My wife and I got one here five years ago. We now own five units. Three fixed weeks on the water and two prime floating weeks. I can't believe how cheap they are compared to other places. We have not done an exchange yet, but at some point I'm sure... More

This is a really nice place set right on the waterway. ASK FOR THE DISCOUNTED RATES FOR A WEEK'S STAY! You'll get a great deal. We loved the location, and the views. Nice folks, and clean pool/hot tub too!

Very clean rooms and property. Staff was friendly, efficient and very helpful. Great amenities. We loved the daily activities that were offered like Monday Morning Coffee Meet & Greet, Movie & Popcorn Night, Ice Cream Sundaes, and Hot Dog/Smoked Sausage Lunch. We'll definitely be back!!!

The Marina Bay Resort was a love at first sight for us in the mid 1980's. Visiting a friend who was living on his sailboat and renting a slip at the Marina Bay Resort, we found it convenient to East Pass, Destin, and Ocaloosa Island is directly across the sound. Boat traffic is fun and interesting to watch from a... More

This is a quaint, pleasant resort. The grounds are beautiful. From the waterfront units or along the pier one can watch the boats sailing by, along with pelicans and other birds. The activities provided are fun, interpersonal, and well coordinated by Lady Di. We met several new friends while staying there. Activities are provided on- and off-site. Local restaurants are...

This is an older motel that is also a time share located on the Intracoastal Waterway. We met several couples who are regular yearly repeaters. The rooms and grounds are very well kept. When I had difficulty with the lock, maintenance was there within 5 minutes to fix it. The maid service was terrific and front desk very helpful. It... More

We stay here for one week every June....it's our favorite place because of the family like spirit that permeates and the cleanliness. We had a two room suite, one bedroom with king size bed and the other with full equipped kitchen and pull out sofa and love seats making the living room into a bedroom at night. (Great for additional... More
