We will return! Our room was ocean front and overlooked one of the pools....Fabulous balcony views. We enjoyed the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella and also the free in-room dvds/movies. The pools were clean and relaxing and we did not have time to use the free bicycles or the arcade/game area of the resort. We enjoyed smoothies and lunch at the Tiki Hut Grill and having a microwave and mini fridge in our room was very convenient. We did not eat at the resort restaurant - we chose to explore and eat at various Fort Walton and Destin restaurants.
The resort is old and a bit dated but service and cleanliness made up for what might have been lacking. It is our understanding that the hotel is going to become a Wyndham property in the near future. We look forward to returning for another visit.
