Destin West has been a destination for my, two daughters, and I for the last two trips to the beach. We have had an awesome experience each visit. It was summer 2013 the first time we visited and they lazy river and easy access to pools and the beach made it easy to keep cool. Our spring break visit in... More

We arrived at the resort after dark and was very confused about where to check in. Once we found the resort office, the clerk did not give precise instructions as to get to our condo. We were lost in the resort in the dark with rain & wind! We called the clerk to help us and the phone went straight... More

This was a last minute spring break trip for our family. We originally wanted a 2 bedroom condo but because we waited til the last minute to book a condo we were unable to secure a 2 bedroom unit (this was the price range we wanted) so on a whim we called about the 3 bedroom penthouse. We got a... More

We stayed in Pelican L05. It was beautifully decorated. The location of Destin West is perfect being on the beach and bay, and also close to Destin but not crowded. We have stayed here 4 times, and absolutely love it. Security was quite overbearing this year, which has not been a problem in years past. Almost felt hassled getting in... More

This was a trip with my granddaughter, grandson, son, and neice. Condo was a 2 bedroom beachfront. Loved the view of the turquoise water and white, sandy beaches from the balcony. Enjoyed the umbrella and 2 chairs which came free with our rental. Enjoyed both the beach, lazy river, and hot tubs. Shopping. Bubba Gumps was favorite place to eat.... More

We stayed at Destin West because of my daughters cheerleading competition location. Before we arrived a storm passed through and apparently hit a transformer. We only stayed at this resort because it was supposed to have a heated pool. The transformer did something to the pool, so no heated pool also we couldn't even get to the ramada without hopping...

The condo was a two bedroom beachfront. Very large with updated appliances. Check in was a breeze and staff was very friendly. The condo was lovely.

We just recently rented Pelican 507 for the first few days of Spring Break. It was 8 of us in the Condo and we had plenty of room. The condo was spotless and had everything you could possibly want as far as bed linens, towels, and cooking utensils!

We stayed in Heron on the bayside and I can say we really liked that side better. We did go down to the beach (5 minute walk) everyday but we preferred being by the pools and lazy river(too cold at the time). The teenagers wandered about to the boardwalk, arcade next door, and the beach without any issues. The condo... More
