We have stayed at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort three times in Gulfside 303. It is our absolute favorite vacation ever! Spending a week waking up to the gulf while drinking coffee on the balcony is pure heaven. The resort gives access to the Ramada pool, gulfside pool, as well as a lazy river on the bayside. We spend... More

We stayed at the Destin West for a week in October 2015. The place is awesome. We had a bayside condo with a great view of the lazy river and the bay. We chose bayside so my son's could fish off the Destin West pier which was awesome as well. Had more luck at the resort pier than we did... More

I have stayed at Destin west several times and have never been disappointed. We always choose a room on the bay side. It is more economical and we love seeing dolphins playing in the bay from our balcony. If you have never stayed here before, you are in for a treat. It is a great place for adults and children...

This was our second trip this year to Destin West. We stay on the bayside because we need the extra space. The walk to the beach is not that far. We have loved our condo and the amount of space we have. The pools are one of our favorite activities besides the beach. November was a great time to come,... More

My mother in law rents a condo here every year for family vacation and it never disappoints. Love being ocean front. Awesome pools, lazy river...everything is so nice. We also had access to the pools at the hotel beside Destin West. There's also a pool that's half covered if you wanna stay out of the sun. Rooms have had everything... More

This was our second time staying at this resort. Both years we have stayed in condo 301 in the gulf side villas building. I absolutely love this place. It's only about 10 minutes from Destin. There is a pier that you can walk or fish off of about a half mile away. We walked along the beach to get there.... More
