Elaine Perkins Owner, Unit #3005 This was our first trip to Ft. Walton and we were not disappointed! The Islander Resort was clean, quiet and conveniently located. The people that work at this facility were all very friendly and helpful. We never had any maintenance or any related issues. The pool is enormous and at the deepest part is only... More

Gorgeous individually owned and decorated condos with lovely pool and beach. BBQs and beach umbrellas/chairs are available too. Stayed beach front on the 7th floor and slept with the sliding doors open every night to enjoy the peaceful sounds of the surf.

We have stayed at the Islander Beach Resort twice and plan on having our wedding there next June. We love this place and have not had any problems. First and foremost of note, this is a condo, not a hotel. Each unit is individually owned and maintained by 1 of a few management companies. Each unit will be furnished differently,... More

We booked a room on priceline - room type: Partial Ocean View Room. Prime Ocean Front Property. We checked in yesterday, but got room 267 in the Maui building, definitely no front property. When I showed my printed reservation where it says front property, the lady at the service desk said that this is misleading and she is sorry about... More

We just got back for the Islander this morning. We stayed in room 4006 and it was great. It was a newly remodeled unit and it was beautiful. Beach front, on the gulf, can't ask for more. There were 2 things that I'd change and one was they were painting the halls, floors, and doorways the week we were there.... More

It is a nice, clean hotel, right on the water, with a kitchenette. it is a bit dated, but given the reasonable cost, beautiful beach, it really is hard to beat. It is a nice family place, used by the services on Eglin AFB, so you are pretty close to base, and still right on the water. You really are... More

I note several uncomplimentary reviews of this property. I must say I was surprised by their experiences. My unit was on the seventh floor. The condition of the unit was very good. You can usually find something that looks worn out or the paint is peeling. I found nothing like that in my unit. It was tastefully appointed with furniture... More

Stay here for spring break. Rooms are expected as pictured. Did not get to stay in the rented unit and relocated to another room due to a broken furniture. Average on both studio units are small and narrow units. Building is old, needs TLC inside out and the whole nine yards. Dry walls are peeling top to bottom so expect... More

I have been vacationing in the panhandle for the past 39 yrs, most of the time 2-3 times a year. We are in unit 205. The air conditioner would not turn on upon our arrival. It was repaired fairly promptly. The furniture needs replacing badly. I can feel the frame of the faded, musty sofa when I set down. We... More

We had 3 adults and 2 children roam freely in the 2bdrm/2bth/sleeper sofa condo. I can't complain about the ample space or view in this condo for the money ($202/night). The deco was very nice for it's hayday in 1985 (blue/yellow beach cottage) I did expect a bit more of a thorough clean since a cleaning fee of $128 is... More
