The condo was beautiful, but the view from the balcony was breathtaking. The beaches weren't too crowded and we got our own umbrella and two chairs through the beach service. Plenty of activities for the family in town, and the lazy river was a major plus!! Thanks again😃

We had a short walk to the beach and a convenient sky walk over the highway to get to the beautiful lazy river on the bay side. We walked out to the bay... More

We booked a condo online for our wedding/honeymoon that was supposed to be a 2 bedroom with washer/dryer and a beach view. It was a one bedroom with a note on the water hook up that told us they were in the process of putting a washer/dryer in. It didn't have a beach view. They also told we would have... More

Destin West is awesome! We always stay on the Bay side due to the great pool/lazy river. The skywalk makes it super easy for beach access. We have stayed in two different units, both spectacular. The location is great for other activities. I highly suggest a visit to McGuire's Pub. The staff at Destin West are extremely helpful. We had... More

We ennjoyed our stay at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort. The room was nice. The employees were very gracious and accomodating. The pools were all they had advertised and more. We would most definitely recommend and will be staying there again.

Absolutely amazing location and beautiful condo on the gulf of mexico. Complete family fun in the sun, surf and sand. The condo is right on the beach in Okaloosa Island and is a short boardwalk from the condos to the chairs on the beach. Our family enjoyed spending time doing nothing for a week! Destin West is a perfect getaway... More

I have brought my family to Destin West for 4 years. This year I made our reservation in Feb for Osprey 503 and was placed in 305. The person made a mistake but the resort made me feel like it was me and gave a snobbish apology and said they couldn't do anything. The furniture was nasty, AC broken, pipes... More

We stayed June 6th through the 8th, 2014 in the Villas, our unit needed updating however it was clean. We assumed that because "resort" was included in the name that there would be towels for the beach and pools, and shampoo in the bathrooms.
