“Pier ruins the view and condo”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We have ALWAYS stayed at the Summerwind East building. It was heartbreaking this trip to find out that the pier plays loud music till 11-12 at night. Besides the loud music (Bands sounded great though) I heard some not so nice conversations and shouting/swearing from people on the pier. We would try to sit out in our balcony but we did not have any privacy and it was so loud we could not even hear the gulf. Sleeping with doors shut and tv on, we still heard the music. Needless to say we did not have a good stay at summerwind. It is a beautiful condo resort, great pools and staff. The pier is wonderful as well, but unless you do not mind the noise of people and music at night, I would advise to stay somewhere else. I feel bad for all of the condo owners in this building.

The condo itself was nice and had a great view but we could not swim in the beach any because it was full of seaweed! Also, Do Not rent from Dale E. Peterson because they add charges to you card after you leave and are extremely rude when you call to ask them about it and basically tell you they can do what they want...Stay as far away from Dale E Peterson as you can. Do research and rent from someone else!

Disgusted by the condition of my condo from day one. 40 minute drive to Destin to do anything... I've spent half of my vacay in the car bringing the kids into Destin for some fun. This place is BORING. Pools are nothing fancy and beach water has been ugly since storms... still fabulous in Destin.

Navarre Beach was beautiful beyond our expectations! Room 201 was well stocked, very clean and convenient! Three couples and 9 children had a blast!!! Check in and check out was quick and easy. The fact that there was no keys to the door (key pad only) made out trips back and forth to the room from the beach very convenient by not having to keep up with keys. The pier is located within a short walking distance and grocery store is right over the bridge (a 5 minute drive away). There was NEVER a wait for the elevators and pools were never crowded. All 3 couples plan to return to this location very soon as it was our best vacation ever!! I would highly recomment this beach and this 3 bedroom condo...

My family and family friends, went to Summerwind Resort for our vacation. The customer service was great! They gave the kids/teens beach balls & gave the adults beverage holders! We were in unit 704 E, It was very clean when we got into the room. The view from our hotel room was great! The pier was still being built when we went, but it is up now. The pool is RIGHT outside, and the best part is you only have to walk across a boardwalk to get to the beach! There are three pools, and you can use any of them. The children/teens met tons of kids there age just swimming at the pool! It is a very family friendly place. It is great for anyone to go. If you like going to Restaurants & amuesment parks, Pensecola is not much more than 15 minutes away, & Destin is about 30 minutes away. Both, Pensecola & Destin have great entertainment. If you are looking for entertainment without traveling, you might want to look for a different place to stay. Other than that, If you don't mind traveling, Summerwind Resort is perfect! We will DEFINANTLY Be back! I HIGHLY recommend Summerwind Resort. All in all, One of the best family/friend vacations ever!

Room Tip: I would request a room with a good view!

We spent one whole week at the Inn at Summerwind in April 2010. It was in the first tower of the 3, it was a 1 bedroom condo on the 11th floor.

The condo was huge, a ton of space for a newlywed couple. It was spotless and perfectly clean. The view was amazing. The office let us in early cos we drove 12 hours from Indiana. They were super professional, polite and friendly.

The pool and the building were clean too. The beach was amazing. Eventho they were working on the pier but as if they weren't. It was quiet and peaceful.

I called the office directly and got a great deal for one week. We went to destin and fort Walton for restaurants, movies, parasailing and shopping.

We would highly recommend this place, and we will be coming back soon.

Thank you for the great experience and wonderful stay!
