4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in the Villas, in Gulfside PH03. It's a penthouse and is nice and large for a 1 bedroom. It had two nice sized bunkbeds off to themselves with an adjoining bathroom, plus a huge master and a HUGE bathroom for it. The queen sofa bed also pulled out. The kitchen was nice and well stocked with cooking utensils.... More

We started going here because of the lazy river feature. We rent through VRBO and have not been disappointed in any unit we have rented. Some even come with free beach chair rental. The lazy river is on the bay side and we just cross the walkway over the road to get to the beach. It's a great family destination... More

We really enjoyed staying at this resort. We enjoyed the beautiful beach and had lots of fun at the lazy river and kiddie pool. Our unit did have really hard mattresses that were really uncomfortable. I wrapped the sham pillows in the extra sheet and used it to cushion the bed. Also, the run in the master suite would not...

This place is awesome. You will not regret your stay. I have stayed twice and equally enjoyed each time. Our view was overlooking the beautiful bay and the beach was right across the crosswalk, and the lazy river is awesome. You will never have to leave during your stay.

Heron 306 was really nice and clean. Very spacious for our family of 5 with a nice patio area. Family room was large and we loved the picnic style table. TVs didnt have HDD but we had free wifi. Considering the price I expected more things to be offered in the condo like a free beach chair service or at... More

Recently enjoyed another visit to this resort and have absolutely no regrets. This is a fabulous facility with things for all age groups. The only complaint that we have from both trips is the elevators are ungodly hot to travel in.

Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is just awesome! We stayed on the bay side in the Heron building. Beautiful view of the bay and just walked over went through a little wooden gate and ate lunch a few times at Fuddpuckers. This is also where you an rent paddle boards, kayaks and such. Very nice walk over to the... More

Our family has stayed at Destin West on eight previous occasions with no problems. PPH8 is awful -- drapes off and hanging in living area, non functional hanging in Master bedroom. There are only three dinner forks, no wine glasses and the unit was so dusty when we arrived. The bedding is old and thin. This unit needs help. Very... More
