The Palms of Destin is great. The rooms are beautiful and very roomy (we were in junior suite 11207 in the east tower). They have everything you might possibly need in the condo (except food). The pools are fantastic, they have one to fit everyone's needs. They are lit at night, but only enough for you to be able to see. I would imagine they don't have more lighting at night due to the fact that it would bother the tenants on the lower floors to have blaring lights coming into their rooms late into the night. The condo we stayed in had plenty of toilet paper and did have shampoo, soap, dish soap, paper towels, etc. Anyone much over 5' tall would not be able to sleep on the trundle bed, but for those under and children, it is perfect. I wish the shower stall had been in the master bath instead of the trundle bed bath. My husband ended up taking a shower in the other bathroom due to this.
The condo is not directly on the beach, but we would rather play in the pools than go to the beach anyway, so that wasn't a problem for us. Another thing that we liked was the playground for the children to play on. They also have tennis courts and a basketball court and they provide the equipment to use these.
All of the staff that I encountered was very friendly and helpful.
The only complaints I have is the fact that by the time they add all of the fees onto the bill you end up paying almost double the advertised price of the room. Actually, the entire resort is well worth the amount that we paid. We stayed in another resort in June which only had one bathroom and no real kitchen and paid the same price that we paid for the Palms.
In the end, I would definitely rather stay here than the other place for the price. I would also recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.
