My family has spent the last 2 spring breaks here and we love it. The heated outside pools are great during spring break because weather is so unpredictable. Thanks!

Great property right on the beach w/ 2 heated pools. Lots of fun extras for kids to do, and the beach was absolutely great (clean, patrolled for safety, and wide for plenty of space). In section of Ft Walton that had things to do and see, but not too busy. We drove from Atlanta. There are not a lot of...

Thank you very much for your great reviews of our beach hotel! We love hearing how our younger guests enjoyed the kids activities throughout their stay, and we agree that the wider beaches on Okaloosa Island allow for a bit more worry-free enjoyment than those whose waters come farther in. Okaloosa Island is newly bustling with lots of great attractions,...

Food was not good. Room had an odor. The maid came in room when we had a do not disturb sign on. Had money missing in wallet. The manager was always on break every time we went to front desk to speak with her.

We arrived on a Thursday and left on Sunday. In that amount of time we changed rooms 4 times! 3 of the 4 times the air condition was broken! One time they even gave us a room that was occupied and we walked in on a man. This hotel needs major updates!

After having to book this hotel last minute and not having much of an option (it being spring break and in the middle of a cheerleading competition) I was so disappointed with this hotel. Walked in to my hotel room that smelled of must and stale air like it hadn't been freshened in a month. Along with that I have...
