Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful resort property at least 8 times, with very few issues. This was our first experience withVRBO Pelican 602. We arrived to find a nasty condo! There were food chunks in the stove, dust covered fans and vent covers. The floors were dirty, the walls were dirty. We contacted our... More

Our family of 6 really enjoyed our stay at Destin West! We stayed in a penthouse room with a bay view near the lazy river and couldn't have asked for a better room! The master had a very nice king bed, very comfy - and the kids had 'out of the way' bunks with their own bathroom tucked into a... More

This is our 3rd time at Destin West Beach & Bay resort. Twice we've stayed on the Bayside and now got to experience the Gulfside. All 3 times we've had great experiences and couldn't have been happier with our overall vacation experience. Every morning we saw dolphins from our balcony. The view was amazing, refreshing and suprisingly quiet! :) I... More

I can't rave enough about our stay here. We booked on vrbo and stayed at a villa here. We were given wristbands for all pool accesses as well as access to the ramada pool and splash area for kids. The parking garage is conveniently located, a short walking distance from where we stayed. And the beach side services were awesome.... More

The views from the penthouse condos on July4 were spectacular! Plenty of room for us. Convenient to Fudpuckers. The lazy river pool is nice. It was a bit crowded,but still fun. The bridge over to the beach side was nice for morning walks. Parking is a bit frustrating. The elevators take forever. I suggest using the stairs for everything. The... More

We recently stayed at this resort for vacation. It was as advertised and more. We rented directly from an owner for a Sand Piper condo and was very pleased with the condo, the resort and all of the amenities! This place has something for all ages! We will be back and are encouraging our friends to consider staying at this... More

We rented Destin West Gulfside #411 from ssrents.com for our honeymoon and we had a wonderful time. The condo is recently renovated in a modern style with nice decor and comfortable furnishings. Our patio had a view of the pool and the oceans so we could watch the dolphins while we drank our morning coffee. The bed was super comfortable,... More

This condo was the perfect place to spend a week as a family with a 3 and 4 year old. The gulf view was amazing. It sits on an amazing stretch of beach with powdery white sand. The balcony was the perfect place to hang out during naps and when the children went to bed. We loved being so close... More

Ceiling fans thick with dust. Patio had not been swept or furniture cleaned. I swept & picked up a pile of cig. buttts. Lip prints on... More
