Let me say right away that the ladies at reception and the room attendant were most charming and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and the towels artistically folded. There are no smoking rooms but you can step outside the door where, on the upstairs floor at least, there are some garden chairs and tables on a covered veranda. The kitchenette however, consisted of a microwave and the teensiest fridge. There were no plates,cups,glasses,pots,or utensils of any kind except two very flimsy plastic glasses and no work surface to speak of. When we enquired about spoons etc. the delightful Peggy could come up with only one knife but agreed that maybe it was something they should think about. Fortunately I always bring some of my own and, pertinent to English travellers, a multi voltage kettle! The location is great; short of being directly on the beach, you couldn't be closer but note that it's 25 dollars a day to hire a chair and umbrella regardless of how long you're there. The inclusive breakfast consisted of going 'round to the attached coffee shop and presenting your voucher which entitled you to...a muffin; not any muffin but only selected ones; and some mediocre coffee in a cardboard cup. We soon skipped this in favour of the truly fine American breakfasts available in any number of local restaurants. There is a good restaurant at the end of the aforementioned veranda. I was,however awakened two or three times in the small hours by either patrons loudly leaving the parking lot, or the boisterous jests of the restaurant staff closing up for the night. There are many good restaurants nearby and a good supermarket (we bought plates!) and, of course, Destin itself has everything to offer in the grand American style. The pool area was nice but there was no shade and no umbrellas to shelter from the hot sun. My partner dipped her toe into the jacuzzi which was fortunate as the water was scaldingly hot. As I said: good,but with a few tweaks could be so much better.
Try to be furthest from the restaurant.
