For our 10 year anniversary (end of Feb), we went down to Ft. Walton Beach, FL. We were able to easily book our hotel online 5 hours before getting down there. It was off season, so don't expect to do this during peak season. When we got there it was under construction, but we didn't mind. We just needed a place to sleep. The rooms were clean and spacious for our family of 5.
There were two pools (one heated and one not heated). We used the heated pool during our stay and again, thoroughly enjoyed it since we were the only ones there. We weren't able to make use of the sauna due to renovation. The hotel was appealing and beautiful and the kids were in awe of the place.
Our three kids (5, 6, & 7) loved being able to just walk to the beach and enjoy the soft sandy beach. The hotel was right on the beach, so it was nice to just walk out the room and a few steps later, we were on the beach. There were no crowds on the beach and it was very clean. I've been to some beaches and you see trash and it was dirty. This one was really nice.
We did have breakfast and their staff was so kind and courteous. I can appreciate that, especially when you have kids and they're being attended to. That's a plus in my book!
Even with construction, it was peaceful the entire day and through the night.
We were about 5 minutes from Destin, so we went over there to catch a dolphin watch boat ride. It was really nice. Destin was definitely busier and had more shops/restaurants than Fort Walton, so I'm glad we were where we were. I'm not too big on crowds.
Definitely recommend during the off-season time to be at if you don't like crowds.
