Went here with a firend who got a "free week" with the purchase of her timeshare. The "free week" costs you $250 booking fee with RCI. If we were to have purchased the room outright, since this is a hotel the room would have been $40-45 per night. Not much of a deal for a "free week". The room was tiny, the bed was crummy, the carpet and blanket were wierdly sticky. We stayed 1 night and left. Went down the road 4 miles to Destin and stayed in a nice Hampton Inn king suite for less than $100 a nite. We went right before the start of spring break, March 1 was the start of their higher price season)
Marina Bay was a "a mile from the beach" , as the crow flies, not walking distance. The rental bikes were junk too. There wasn't anything to do in Fort Walton or Destin for the middle age traveller. At least at the Hampton we could walk to the beach, but you can't see it because of the high rise condos on the beach. Lots of shopping, but I didn't travel 1000 miles to shop at the same old stores I do at home. No old Florida flavor here.
