My wife and kids stayed at the beach and bay resort for our first annual October gulf vacation. We stayed in villa 401 and it was great for a small family. The unit was clean and the washer and dryer was a huge asset with little ones that get messy playing. We went in October and it wasn't very busy...

We rented a corner studio condo for myself, my husband, and our 1-year old, for a great rate I might add. (Independent renters) It was like a swanky hotel room with panoramic views and a wrap-around balcony. So awesome! It wasn't a beach-front condo, but we did have a view of the beach to the east and lots of room...

Stayed at RV park in mid October. Fantastic RV park and great time of year to visit. Summer crowds were gone and plenty of room. RV park is part of Ramada resort across the street. One of the best beaches in the country. Would definitely stay again, may try the spring before the crowds arrive. Many restaurants within walking distance....

We go to Destin West almost every year. It's a great place to take your family. The lazy river is huge and awesome. Having access to the Ramada Inn pools is also nice. It's clean and the staff is very friendly. We're looking forward to our next stay there.

We stayed in Villa 301 and were super happy with everything about this resort. The facilities are well maintained, the pool sparkling clean and the white sand beach was spectacular! Situated on Okaloosa Island the area can be quite busy. We arrived on the weekend of a volleyball tournament on the beach (at the Boardwalk) so it was quite busy....

The grounds are incredible. We had the best view! The area around the lazy river was so relaxing. We came with our two small kids and this place offered absolutely everything we could have needed. They do a wonderful job taking care of this resort.

This resort does not lack for things to do. With all the pools, lazy river, and beaches there is something for everyone. We found all the pools and river to be clean.

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.
