This was my familys 2nd stay at Destin West. The first year we stayed on the Bayside, this year was on the Gulfside in Rm. 512. The condo has everything you could ask for or need. The carpet and furnishings could use some updating/cleaning but all in all it was everything we expected. Having full access to all the amentities... More

The condo was clean and easy access to everything. I will be back. Very cozy having more space with kids than in a hotel. Also love being able to have access to ramada plazas pools. More bang for your buck.

Every year we stay here and it seems like every year it gets better and better. We stayed for 4 nights this year and it was absolutely wonderful. The lazy river is always my favorite place to relax. We stay in Heron 406 every year, the owner is so easy to work with, we book through VRBO. We had so... More

Several issues arose with this rental. We were unable to check in at the appropriate time which was listed as a possibility, but the staff cut the check very close to the limit. There was no cable outlet in the bedrooms. The cleaning staff left a bag of unlaundered sheets in the living room floor, which were never picked up... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We appreciate your feedback. It looks like you may have stayed at Destin West during the time that the Gulfside HOA was making some changes to its cable provider and set up. Unfortunately, for a period of weeks some rental units did not have cable activated in the master or... More

We booked a condo through Destin West Beach & Bay Resort hoping for the best, and got much better than we expected. Our unit (4105 in the Sandpiper building) was lovely. The condo itself was fresh, and charming, with a beautiful view of the lazy river and pools, and the bay. It was well appointed, well updated, and felt like... More

However, this time there was poop in the pool and it took a while for someone to get there to clean it. There was also and intoxicated female who was in danger of hurting herself... More

We love the rooms on the gulf side and how much patio and pool space there is! We have stayed here for 8 years in a row. The access to the beach is great. The ground floor rooms have direct access to the pool deck, which is very convenient!

We have stayed at Destin West for years. We booked late one year and couldn't get a condo, so we had to stay somewhere else. It didn't even compare to Destin West. I booked the next summer at Destin West while we were at the other condo. There is 9 of us and none of the 9 liked where we... More
