Definitely not worth the money spent on room There was big water stains(?) on the bed skirt, no Hot Water in shower or kitchen, and no Furniture on patio so sit on. This was a very average looking room, with a very small flat screen T.V. on a big dresser.

Check-in very nice, new building. Traveled for Business with another lady from my office, reservations made at the same time, didn't realize the property has numerous buildings, and naturally they put us in different buildings, one vehicle, so had to park between to be close. Arrived after 6+ hour drive, even though check-in is nice it is a mile or... More

Attended a wedding on this resort and it was the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to! Huge golf resort complete with it's own little wharf full of bars, restaurants, boutiques, and fun activities. I've been to Destin a few times and have only discovered this property now. The vacation rentals are beyond beautiful. The pictures on the website does... More

We stayed for 2 months in a wonderfully appointed and equipped beachfront 2 bedroom condo. The view was spectacular even though the weather was not always great. Were winter guests so we were entitled to free bikes and tennis. As well we got a discount on 3 of the challenging golf courses. The staff was very helpful an accommodating throughout... More

A typical Florida golf resort with artificial feeling and very spaced out. Nice grounds and some good restaurants. Room was ok but no more. Breakfast not available in the hotel. Some nice areas to walk and a half decent gym. Choose another resort. Didn't try the golf.
