The beach is what it is, great! We had our 30th High School reunion, stayed there. It seems no real upgrades since the parking garage. Its time to upgrade, especially for the room rates, we stayed 5days

Although the rooms themselves were average at best, the resort overall was wonderful! Great location - just before the bridge that links Fort Walton Beach to Destin! Private beach access so we didn't have to get sand in our vehicle! Great pools - one huge cool pool with swim-up grotto waterfall bar, one large heated pool, huge hottub, small kiddie... More

Thanks for the compliments! We are glad you enjoyed our Dine In Chef brick oven pizza so much, as well as the Garden Cafe breakfast and the Bayou Country BBQ outside near the pools. If your travels bring you back to the beach, we hope to see you again. More

We LOVED our stay at the ramada. Our kids really enjoyed the pools and the splash zone. It was really cool how one door of the hotel opened up 2 the beach and the other side door opened up to the pools. We had a pool side hotel room on the 5th floor and loved our balcony. They even had... More

The good: The pools are great, the separation of kid pool vs mature pool were nice, bars - they've got several, bartenders were generous, beach access, beds are comfy, staff is friendly and helpful, room service was delicious, decent WiFi, surf shop on site, the location to the boardwalk pier is a short walk. The bad: You will walk a... More

This place is pretty deceiving when you look at pictures. It's true that the swim up bar is pretty cool, but this place is a lot more trashy than the pictures show. I was talking to a regular and she said this place was built in the 60s or maybe even before then. It seems as if they haven't done... More

My husband highly recommended the Ramada Beach Resort as he stayed here Nov 2013 and May 2014 with family while visiting his sister in Ft Walton. I was not so concerned by some of the negative reviews. For the price you get the most bang for your buck and situated right on the Gulf! All staff were friendly, helpful and... More

My husband and I have stayed here two times together and he stayed for about a month during a TDY to Hurlburt Field in 2010. Its a decent place, I wouldn't say it was awesome, but it does what it's supposed to and provides a bed for you to sleep in when you aren't out on the beach or enjoying... More

We appreciate you telling us about your visit. How disappointing that the June grass had washed in while you were here. Our location can't be beat, with numerous bars and restaurants on property as well as next door. We hope to see you again. More

Hotel is outdated and does not match pictures on internet. Garden cafe nice, great service. Hotel room very dirty pool is very nice..... They gave several bars so you don't have to leave. Boardwalk next door outdated also. Had people in cars in parking lot playing loud music. Not like it used to be

We very much enjoyed staying at the Ramada Plaza at Fort Walton Beach. My husband especially enjoyed the pool. If I would have known how much we would enjoy this stay. I would have extended our stay instead of booking another place for last part of our vacation.

Thanks so much for your kind words. We appreciate you noticing that we encourage recycling, which is just one of many "green" practices we do here. Come on back for your next trip... the pool will be waiting! More
