I rented a condo for 5 days here. The room was supposedly inspected by housekeeping and maintenance before we arrived. Upon arrival, the shower rod was broke in half and laying on the floor. The shower curtain was ripped. The comforter in my room was stained with blood. Staff weren't able to replace my comforter with a new one and... More

We have stayed at this property twice. Both times, the staff was amazing and very helpful. During our first trip, we stayed in Gulfside 109. This condo was perfect. It was spacious, and I loved the pool access right off of our room. For our most recent trip, we stayed in Gulfside Villa 307. It was very cramped, and I... More

We stayed at the Destin West Bayside in the Osprey L05 unit. Well the unit was large and had a beautiful deck (with hot tub) that opened to the lazy river and pool area, the kitchen area was a little rundown. The freezer did not produce ice and after maintenance checked on it, the only option was to defrost the... More

I am terribly disappointed after getting off of the phone with a Destin West representative. A week ago I made a one week reservation online which was confirmed and deposit paid. Now they tell me that they cannot accept the reservation and I have to cancel because the dates are not Sat-Sat. Why would the software reservation system accept the... More

I loved this place! It was so much fan. We had the penthouse suite and it was incredible. I loved the pools. The lazy river was my absolute favorite. The only thing that I didn't like was that you had to go down the elevator and walk to the main building and go up another elevator just to get to... More

The night seen at the Lazy River is not family friendly. I went there with my teenage kids and it was full of older and more mature teenagers who occupied the hot tubs and pool deck. Their behavior was rude, the language was foul, and there is no security to control this. Sad to see what a group of immature... More

We fell in love with this place so much we bought a condo here and live full time! Our back yard is now the lazy river, we use the gym, the short walk to the beach helps us burn off the great local food.....

My husband, son, mother, and sister and her family stayed in a 3 bedroom 2 bath rental. We had plenty of room for 8 people. We were not beachfront but on the side with the lazy river and pool. The place was clean, service was great, and the amenities are good. We loved our stay.

I spent the month of January at the Destin West in the Osprey Penthouse #2. WOW! This spacious penthouse condo surpassed all expectations. It was very tastefully decorated and very comfortable throughout. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything I needed to cook and serve comfortably. I had my own private rooftop space with a private hammock, gas grill and... More
