Go to Hidden Dunes! It is a beautiful community close to lots of activities, shopping and dining, but out of the congestion of central Destin. In addition to the Gulf of Mexico and tennis courts, there are a lake and an extensive water feature, as well as beautifully landscaped and maintained grounds. Gulfside is a highrise right on the beach; beach villas are one step back from the beach; and cottages a little farther away.
Just look carefully at the details and pictures of the unit you plan to book. Several different companies manage properties in the resort. They have different standards, and the quality of the units varies greatly. Some have been updated, and some are in need of serious attention. We stayed in Gulfside 1102 - apparently Resort Quest does not require much. The whole unit is "dated" and "worn" - cabinets/counters, floors, walls. Bed linens were the lowest thread count I've ever seen; toilet function needed to be addressed; tv's were from the last century (and we had to connect the one in the living room to cable). We learned that there are great units, too. They would be well worth the extra dollars. The negatives below pertain only to the unit we stayed in.
