Spent 4 nights at the Islander in Destin. We had a two bedroom condo # 518. Was rather skeptical at first, since all the reviews rated it so high. However, it definitely exceeded our expectations. Our room was recently redecorated and was very spacious. We looked out at the ocean, it was called a sunset view. Balcony was also much larger than most other places. The amenities package gave us free golf, movie rentals, mini golf, etc.
We ate dinner at High Tide and found it to be excellent. It is near the bridge to Ft. Walton. The restaurant had been recommended by a local and was very good.
