We stayed in condo 1003 in the st. Croix building. Overall we were completely satisfied. We did have an issue with the cleanliness of the condo when we got in at 4pm, but after a phone call to management company it was rectified immediately. It was a three bedroom condo facing the most beautiful view of the gulf, gorgeous pool,... More

Wonderful stay and this was my first time at a condo resort versus a hotel resort. Truly beyond amazing property! Beautiful landscaping, pools, drinks, beach chairs/umbrellas set up daily (included). Reserved garage parking provided and in a great Destin location. No complaints here!

We stayed at the St Croix right in the middle of the resort. Our condo was 3 bedroom 2 bath. The view was amazing. There is underground parking for one vehicle per condo. The resort was kept clean and maintained. It is a gated community and very secure. Our condo had a great view. Updated kitchen. It was an older... More

The condo is average. Serious upgrades in several areas are needed. The master bed is not comfortable and the comforter is kind of cheesy and dated. The shower head in the master bath is one of the old chrome ones . They should invest in a newer large one with a "rain type" sprayer. Water pressure is good. The washer... More

Stayed in M1204R and really enjoyed our condo. Spacious rooms and large laundry room. Our hot tub jets did not work and tv had few issues but the view was wonderful. Elevator opens directly into room and our designated parking place was close to our elevator. Like parking garage underneath building so do not have to contend with weather. Visionary... More

I have been staying here for 16 years ( since it opened ) and it has been a premium condo resort for years. The grounds are beautiful, the pool is awesome and the security is the best around. It has great tennis courts , exercise room and even an indoor pool for when we get too burnt to be outside.... More

This spa has so much potential. Very under utilized. We got to the spa early and sat out by the small pool. This place could be making so much money if they utilized and staffed the pool / porch area. It would be great to use this area for guest before and after massages. To have a bar under the... More
