We did some online research before booking at this condo property, using Google Earth, and the property's web site. We knew we wanted to stay gulf front, as so many places in Destin are across Hwy 98 and you have to cross the road to go to the beach for the day. This property met all of our expectations. Each...

Called the resort from the road. Got one of the last rooms available. This is a private, gated community. Still uses old fashioned door keys. Room is very nice and clean; overlooks the ocean. I would stay here again. Plenty of activities here for everyone.

Two big pluses: oceanfront and a reasonable price. Free movies and beach chairs if you book through the resort. Close to everything. The building and most units could use an update: balcony furniture, fridge and some beach chairs.

My children and I stayed at a second floor condo. The condo had everything we needed but I would choose a higher floor next time. The unit was also showing some "wear and tear" but nothing too bad. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you want a front row beach chair I recommend waking early, going for a walk on...

This place is pretty nice ,but I think they should do away with the tennis courts and put in a bigger pool or pools also the beach service guys put the beach umbrella s so close you have to duck under other people's umbrellas to get to the water which is pretty awkward.
