Condo needs updating. Overall unit was sufficient and comfortable, but carpet needs shampooing, living room sofa and chair are in need of replacing. Inside master bedroom patio door handle was missing, but door still locked. Lacking sufficient # of washcloths and dish towels. Needs new balcony chairs. Had to use living room remote control for both living room and master... More

This is a great place for families because you have it all in one place- beach, pools, lazy river. You also get to use the Ramada pools/grotto bar and splash park next door. Very short walk to boardwalk and restaurants. We've stayed here 3 times (beach side) and will be coming back. I think it's also easier to get to... More

We have a large family (10 in total and 6 being teenaged to low twenties boys). Every aug we come down here for our family vacation. We always have a great stay however we did have to upgrade to the penthouse because of our size. Last year the regular room had a bunk bed in the hall which 3 of... More

If you are looking to rent a condo, do not rent from Holly Braselman.. Sandpiper Bldg - 606 - she is very unprofessional and is not true to her word. The resort itself is a nice place,,, have had great success with other owners.

I traveled with my whole family...7 adults and 2 young kids. We stayed on the Bayside of the resort. The lazy river cannot be beat! We pretty much lived in that. There is also a walk-in beach in the pool that is perfect for small children. One downside we found, is that you can't have any sort of drink, not... More

We have a 22 month old and this is our first "family" vacation. This resort can't be better fit for families that want lots to do on grounds and close by as well as have nice accomodations. We're staying in the Sandpiper 507 on the Bayside and it couldn't be better. This location is perfect because of the pool and... More

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. We were in Pelican L07 and our unit was AMAZING! The view was incredible. The location was quiet , yet convienent to everything. The pools were great and the lazy river was wonderful! The beach was beautiful, sandy white and the ocean was nice and blue/green. The access to the... More

Destin West Resort is refusing to return customer's full deposits this year, even in light of the oil spill. There is a clause in their contract that they will keep $100 if you cancel. Normally, that would be a reasonable risk for any customer who agreed to it, but who could have forseen this disaster??? They are nasty and rude... More

Just got back from four nights in a gulf side condo. LOVED IT! The main pool is large, clean, and not crowded, the grounds are well-maintained, and the view is incredible. We stayed in a one bedroom with bunk room on the 5th floor and it was plenty of space for four adults and one child. We had lots of... More

Destin West refused to change their cancellation policy even with oil due on the Destin beaches. Other resorts had modified their cancellation policy in light of the oil. Have stayed at Destin West at least four summers but never again. I will spend my money at more customer oriented facilities.
