We have stayed at the Islander Beach Resort twice and plan on having our wedding there next June. We love this place and have not had any problems.
First and foremost of note, this is a condo, not a hotel. Each unit is individually owned and maintained by 1 of a few management companies. Each unit will be furnished differently, have different levels of update, etc. Each management company handles their units a little differently as well. For the value, we love this place and it's location. Ft. Walton beach is smaller and quieter than the Destin area, but still only a short drive to anywhere you want to go play, eat, shop etc.
The views from the ocean front balcony can't be beat, soft sugar white sand, emerald green waters that go on forever. They set up beach service every day which includes 2 beach chairs and umbrella and the guys will remember you after the first day you are there and make sure you are taken care of.
The pool is large with a lot of space around, but we didn't use it at all because the beach is so amazing.
We love being able to have a condo that has a kitchen, so we can shop and prepare our own food if we want instead of relying on hotel food all the time, or costly meals out. Like I said before, this is not a resort or hotel if that is what you are looking for. There is a grocery store and liquor store within a 5-10 min drive.
Over all the building is a little aged, but we didn't have any problem with anything there. It is quiet, well maintained, and just what we are looking for in a relaxed family or couples beach vacation.
