We went to Destin and met up with some friends. We went to visit our friends at their condo - Surfside and we were so jealous! We just loved the deck, pool, view, etc. It was conviently located near enterainment, food, and shopping. We are going back to Destin in 2 weeks to stay at the Surfside Condos. We're looking... More

Visited Sunset Charlies one time, for Sunday brunch buffet and enjoyed. Very good selection of food and all very edible. Fair price. Surfside was clean and freshly painted inside.... More

We made a reservation with an individual that owned in the resort. The condo was in perfect condition and tastefully decorated. The location was very convenient and the ocean view was very nice. We had a fabulous meal at the restaurant, Sunset Charlie's. We were sat right against the window with a beautiful view of the ocean. We ordered crab... More

The hotel was nice and in such a gorgeous area for beautiful white sugar sand beaches. The concierge was incredibly sweet and such a wonderful guy. The main problem was the hotel's restaurant called Sunset Charlies. The "Ultimate Seafood Buffet" (more like supreme false advertising) for $40.00 had only dried up fried grouper and unimpressive crab cakes inside chafing dishes... More

Pluses: Great location with a private beach. Decent restaurant. Good price. Minuses: lobby and hallways have a stale smell. Older buidling. Needs upgrading. Room was nice but the shower needs updating. Very crowded. Parking is a cluster. Overall, would stay again if I had to, since the price and location were right.

We stayed at the Surfside in Aug. 2006. This resort is kept spotlessly clean. The wrap around balconys are so nice, when we weren't on the beach, we were on the balcony.They opened up a restaurant on the bottom floor, so it was very convient to just take the elevator down to eat when we didn't feel like leaving the...
