We stayed here for 5 nights in June in the Pelican 304. It was very nicely appointed, with a master suite and bath with tub, a bunk room in the hallway leading to the other bathroom with a shower. There was also a pull out couch, which was my only complaint as it was very uncomfortable. The condo had a... More

We stayed here for a week on the gulfside and rented from VRBO. My review is for the resort, not our specific unit. The gulfside pools are taken care of VERY well. The two men in charge of the pool are the hardest working men we saw at the resort. However, the rest of the resort including: common areas, landscaping,... More

My family and I stayed in Room 410. The room upon arrival seemed fresh and clean. BUT quickly realized it was not as clean as it first seemed. The rugs in each room were never shaken out and full of sand and dirt. The bathroom sinks were not clean (hair etc.) One area that was relatively clean was the kitchen.... More

Condos are individually owned so do your research, we stayed in the Osprey building penthouse 2- awesome condo. Found it on VRBO.com, type in Destin West. We like the bayside better than gulfside so don't let it deter you just because you don't have a beach view- the bay is gorgeous with calm clear water that has fish and rays.... More

We had a nice stay at the dw beach and bay resort. We stayed In a villa. It was nice, although all units do not come with a washer and dryer so specify if needed. We used bookit.com for our reservations and had a great deal! The resort is a little out of the way however we are used to... More

This place is amazing. Of course it's gonna depend on which condo you rent as to how well you enjoy your room since they are privately owned but we rented from wonderful people and had a great room. The pools and lazy river are nice and clean and very relaxing. The grounds are very clean. The sprinkle park next door... More

The Destin West condos are very much a great value for the money. The Lazy River and Pool are a great attraction. I had a condo on the second floor of the Pelican building. The view out the sliding glass doors was incredible. It made the area look like an infinity pool with the bay in the background. I was... More

Location is amazing! Close enough to walk to a few places if you want to, but not in the middle of all of the businesses. Busy area of Destin with restaurants and shopping 10 minutes down the road, not here. This is more quiet but still awesome beaches and crystal waters. We rented a unit on the bay side overlooking...

Condo was beautiful; Pool staff was rude. Stayed here last season and once again recently. Last year watched the pool lady walk around and yell at an elderly couple for having a cup of ice water in the pool. They left shortly after because she was loud and rude. Saw here again this year and she carries herself cold with... More
