Enjoyed the view. Had the sun setting in the west and the moon rising in the east, a full moon no less. (Harvest moon). The beach has lots of room and very clean. The pool area is very big and has kiddie and adult swim areas.

We stayed in Heron 409 managed by Julie at Destinwestcondos.com. The condo was great and had a beautiful view of the lazy river and pool area. I noticed a recent review where someone complained about a murky lazy river. We encountered nothing like this. We all loved the oh so relaxing lazy river. We enjoyed the resort so much that... More

This was our second vacation at Destin West. We rented a Heron condo on the 6th floor from Coastal Vibe vacations. We love the beach and the location near the undeveloped nature/beach preserve. We love the pool options, which are great for children and if the June grass is abundant on the beach/in the water. Our condo was very nice... More

Our condo PH 2 Sandpiper is owned by a wonderful owner and was beautiful. It was the facility itself that gets the poor rating. We have been coming here for years and the grounds, pools, grilling area, the whole place was clean and wonderful. We go here for the lazy river and it was so filthy for three days that... More

This hotel is amazing! Me and my family went down for about 5 days. We had so much fun. The room was great since it had a large kitchenette, with a full size refrigerator. The patio was huge and able to hold guests that came to visit. The pool and the lazy river were so much fun. The kids enjoyed... More

Very nice! We love the lazy river here!! The view is phenomenal, just the right combination of the lazy river and the bay! On the second day the hot water went out, but we called maintenance and they got it fixed shortly. Would definitely stay here again

Complex itself was nice. Workers were friendly and grounds are clean. Lazy river was dirty with leaves and plants but water was clear. The location is beautiful. Not sure if the folks who work the chair/umbrella stand on the beach are connected to the complex but they could use some courtesy training. The guy we spoke to couldn't be bothered... More

We were very excited to have an extended family vacation at Destin West and rented three condos to accommodate our crowd. We were disappointed before we even got there. First: The condo we rented had an air-conditioning issue. To their credit, the management called the day before we arrived and offered to move us to another gulf-side unit. We took... More

Elevator directly outside the room. Easy access to the beach and beach side pools. Comfortable furniture. Beach chairs included in the weekly rental. This is our fourth stay at this... More
