We rented a Studio condominium from Destin West. We have rented from them before with good results, but this time we encountered a problem. We arrived fairly late in the day and it wasn't until around 10PM that we turned in for the night. Our bed had dirty, stained (yellow spotted) sheets. My daughter found a weird "bug" in her... More

Great stay for family with young kids. Kids were everywhere. Our condo was ground level a very very short walk to the beach and step right outside to the pool. The walls are very thin so if you have noisy neighbors, you can hear them. Luckily our neighbors went to bed early. We had access to the lazy river on... More

We stayed on the bay side. We were there with another family. Our condo was clean and comfortable. We loved having the lazy river to relax at night. It was also convenient to have the spray park across the road for my two year old. We will likely return to this site again in the future.

Our family has stayed at Destin West the last 10+ years and have found it to be the most entertaining accommodations for our family of various ages. The teens bounce from the lazy river to the beach to the Ramada pool, fishing pier and restaurants. The condo itself (usually #614) was redone last year after becoming quite tattered (new tile,...

We stayed on the gulf side closest to the beach. We loved this place. They have multiple pools and also give you access to the grotto pool and splash pad next door. We spent most of our time in the pools. There is a walkway over the highway to get over to the other side to visit the lazy river.... More
