Took the family in June for a weeks vacation in Destin. After much research and reading of reviews we chose a two bedroom condo at Topsl based on price and reviews. Also chose it because it is a condo with a full kitchen and washer and dryer. Which can save you a lot if you eat some meals at there. We stayed five nights in the Beach Manor. One of I believe five properties on this huge resort. You will pay more to stay on the beach front properties but in my opinion worth it due to the great views and short distances to the beach. Our room was nice. A little gaudy with its beach themed furniture, but what else would you expect? Furniture was very comfortable and well arranged. The kitchen was very small with a mixture of new and old appliances. Even had a trash compactor.(circa 1980). Of course it probably hasnt worked in years. There was an adequate amount of dishes and pans. However most of it felt like it was from the Dollar Store. We actually had to buy a cheap nonstick skillet from Walmart becase you couldnt cook anything in the cheap pans without it sticking! They give you a minimal amount of supplies. i.e. paper towels, detergent, toilet paper etc. You will have to go to the store, but there is a Publix and a Walmart very close by. The master bedroom was great with an awesome view and patio access. Our patio however was not near as big as the ones we viewed on the website. It was very crowded with only four people on it. The second bedroom was pretty small with two twin beds. The unit had two bathrooms as well. The unit was clean with one big exception. The all tile floor was pretty dirty. You wont realize it at first, but if you walk barefooted or with socks on you will soon find out! The bottoms of our feet where BLACK! This is a condo so there is no daily maid service, but you will pay a cleaning fee when you check in. Dont let my nitpicking discourage you. We still loved it! I liked tha fact that the entrance doors are keyless so your not having to keep up with room cards everytime you leave. The rest of the resort was fabulous.Well kept for an older resort and amazing landscaping. There are pools everwhere. My fvaorite was the one right above the beach. Very nice with a tiki bar and snackbar right next to it. The snack bar was a bit pricy, but not bad. Look at your bill closely as it will include a gratuity and resort fee. Jacking up the price even more. It also has daily activites for the kids. Of course if youre there for the tennis, well theres plenty of courts and a very nice workout facility. The beach is fantastic. Just like the pictures! Emerald green water with sugar white sand. Very clean, just beautiful. One of our contries treasures for sure!
