Check in was a little confusing since we arrived after hours but we got it figured out. Had a little issue with the key code not working in the door but the staff were able to help us out pretty quickly. The view from our unit was absolutely amazing. We stayed in 303A. The unit was clean and well stocked... More

207B was remodeled from top to bottom and finished Memorial Day weekend. It is beautiful! Everything is brand new and of course we had no issues with anything! We went to Destin for the beach and ocean so it didn't bother us there is a small pool and it faces the street. The building itself is only 3 floors and... More

This condo has a great view and easy access to the beach. Traveled with 4 children and I was a little taken back how small the bathroom was and it said for 6 people but I didn't realize how hard that would be with one tiny bathroom. It wasn't as clean as I would like, the bathroom really needed a... More

Stayed in 210A. Loved the location near elevator and right out to the beach. Problems we had were sliding doors do not lock. Called for repair and he came the next day. Worked while he was there and then quit as soon as he was gone. One slider door is all fogged up and needs replacing. Great view through the... More

This was our second stay at this property. We plan on staying here again. Great location and spot on features. This is not a luxury property, but very nice. You can't beat the view and the access and the convenience! You will enjoy your stay and the kitchen will help you save money!

These condos are right on the beach and offer complemntary beach chairs and umbrellas. This was our second time staying in a Crystal Sands Condo. We requested the same unit we had last year, and received confirmation. We were switched to another unit due to the owners changing from daily rent to at least one week stay after we received...

This was our first time at Crystal Sands. The location cannot be beat. The view of the ocean and ease of beach access is wonderful. We used the beach chairs every day (another great perk!) and we watched dolphins swim past from the balcony in the mornings. I was visiting with my 12 and 15 year old kids. They used... More
