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.

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

January is a great month to visit Fort Walton Beach and stay in one of their condos. Our stay was peaceful and the weather cooperated to allow for walks on the beach. Check tripadvisor for local seafood hangouts. No issues with the condos - great space and comfortable.

My wife and I had a great experience during our stay this past October. Weather was excellent; Condo was outstanding for the price and there was plenty of activities within walking distance of the resort. We will consider another visit in the future.
