It seems that the management has lost its attention to detail for what is supposed to be a superior property. The shower curtain looked like it...

I loved the bed, that we could check out things like a garlic press, ample movies and books were available, the 2 bedroom was super big and well stocked, we biked, utilized the pool, hot tube, pool chairs and hammocks. We had...

Just back from a week at Embarc and cannot rate it highly enough, we had a fabulous time. The boys are 5 and 2. They loved the beach, Jolee Island, tennis for the 5 year old and especially the pools, what a wonderful place. Had one day of heavy rain but did the bus tour and found other things to...

We actually never heard of the Embarc but were looking for a place to stay in the San Destin area when it showed up on the TripAdvisor hotel search at a really good price. The reviews were good so we took a chance and booked for one night and were extremely happy with the choice. First let me say that...

We were there for week on a time share trade. Never having been to this resort or even to the Destin area, we were not quite sure what to expect. The Embarc is in a very quiet area, but with easy access to lots of activities. The resort was comfortable, the staff were helpful, and we enjoyed the laid back...

Just exceptional vacation place, so many things to enjoy, wonderful beach, golf course, tennis years and lovely town fully decorated for the holiday season. Pure white sand, kayaking or surfing...an extraordinary escape from world chaos, lovely biking lane, up and down with beautiful golf course. Special view, gold cart on the road! Unfortunately no more rental for travelers only for...

The rooms at the Embarq are laid out with functionality and have everything you may want in a condo type room--full kitchen, washer/dryer, and a hot tub. The room was very clean. I loved sitting on the balcony reading, I just wish it was closer to the beach.
