My wife and I have rented an apartment at Marina Bay for 6 to 8 weeks for the past two years – and we’re coming again next year. This is a very pleasant place to spend time. We especially enjoy its being on Brooks Street in Old Ft. Walton Beach, and we can walk to the Publix market, yoga, a... More

We have been staying at Marina Bay Resort for approximately 5 years. We can't wait to go back. It is a quiet place but has activities and a very inviting pool and hot tub. The personnel are very friendly and helpful. It is close to Destin and the beach. Give them a try, you will have an amazing time.

I just had to post my view from my February trip to Marina Bay. If water front rooms aren't available on your visit, you can still walk down by the Bay, and out on the dock. The weather is getting to be perfect!

I have stayed at this hotel many, many times over the years visiting family. Its a very nice hotel. There is one particular front office employee who is an amazing person. She has helped me out so many times with getting a room and her customer service is EXCELLENT! PAMELA JACKSON, you get 10 stars from me!!

I really enjoy the attention to detail this resort gives to its guests. New tile, artwork, couches and carpet. The hot tub has a light in it that you can see from space at night :) The swimming pool was very nicely heated and felt very good swimming in it despite the cool nights. I stay here multiple times a... More

This resort is a converted motel. The "suites" consist of two hotel rooms with a walk-through i.e. one room is a bedroom and the other serves as a kitchenette and living room. The suites are much smaller than any other place I have stayed. Rooms, furniture and décor are in good condition. The grounds are immaculate and Wi-Fi is free... More

I stayed in a double room with kitchenette and living room separate from the bedroom. The floor and entry doors appeared to be worn out. The door leading to the patio was stuck closed the entire visit even though maintenance checked it out and claimed it was working fine. We had to lug our pool and/or/ fishing gear around the...

The reviewer indicated that the entry doors and floor appeared "worn out." Our entry doors are high-quality 6-panel doors installed a few years ago with no visible signs of wear. This guest stayed in October. In December, we completed installation of new porcelain tile in all of our living rooms and new carpet in all of our bedrooms along with... More

This condo was created by converting an old motel to timeshare condos sometime in the 1980s. This has resulted in very unusual one-bedroom units. (We stayed in a "suite" which was created from two hotel rooms. There was a door between the two units, so there is some privacy for that room.) Our suite, which had a view of the... More
