“Awesome”
Reviewed July 2, 2008

This resort is beautiful! The grounds of this condo are impeccably well-kept. All noise is kept to a minimum. Our balcony was very roomy and had a great view. The private beach was so serene and calming but with great waves and lots of fun. Our condo was gorgeous and we had everything you could possible need! The rooms were big but beautifully furnished which made it very cozy. Having a shelter to park your vehicle was also a big plus. I would recommend this resort immediately and we ourselves want to come back to Destin and stay at this resort, hopefully in this condo unit. Thanks for making a dreamed for vacation come true!!!

2, 25 year old couples. i booked a two bedroom condo in the C building. This was a weekend get-away-from-it-all and it was a success. The condo was clean, comfortable and pleasant.

Right on the beach. Surf/gift shops, up-class outlets and grocery store only a few blocks away. Many restaurants, bars and night life near by.

Great jogging sidewalk along the coast. Private beach near public beach so if you looking to mingle youll find it. Beach is perfect, water is perfect, pools perfect and the price is perfect.

We paid $420 for 2 nights. That is a steal for 2 bedroom condo in destin right ON the beach. Please keep in mind, Amalfi resort will not "SCREW" you on taxes and fees. For 2 nights in a two bedroom condo in Sandestin Resort is over $700 after taxes and fees... Always make sure you get a TOTAL from any resort before giving your credit card digits.

Please keep in mind, if you are looking for the "C" building at 2am. It is between the B and D building.. The C building is not its own building.

PS. Wear sun screen. After a bottle of tequila and a 12 pack of coors light and no sun screen, you will have a painful trip back.

I grabbed the kids and spent Spring break at the Amalfi for 4 days. The place was exactly as it was pictured and described. Very clean and close to the beach. Not too crowded which is what other beaches nearby were. There's a private beach entrance through a gazebo.Be sure to get the security code to enter the beach access gazebo before you head over with all of your stuff. We found it in the elevator posted on condo rules. There's also an Amalfi channel on the TV which gives the condo rules and has the beach security code. The complex has 2 pools. One is heated. We spent a lot of time in the heated one!

  • Liked — Closeness to great beach, shopping, and dining.
  • Disliked — Unpredictability of weather!

This was simply the best vacation rental place we have taken so far. Great location, fabulous beach, excellent building, beautiful unit (Amalfi A-206). Even by the end of November & early December, it was still warm days and we could get into the water every day.

Nice tennis courts, though we did not use the pools, they look fabulous. There is a crab shack in a couple of minutes walk to the west side. We used to walk to the outlet mall too (0.6 miles or so)

If you are going Florida, Emerald Coast is the place to go and if you are going Emerald Coast, Amalfi Coast Resorts is the place to live. Enjoy!

This is a quiet complex of individually owned condos. We stayed in one on the top (fourth) floor on the left end, facing the complex. There were 2 huge bedrooms, two bunk beds in a spacious entranceway and a fold out queen and twin sleeper in the unit. Sleeping 10 was no problem!

A balcony wrapped around the one side and the front, Gulf-facing side. The huge kitchen, a formal dining room, a separate dry bar off the huge living room and overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, a huge laundry room, and two large bathrooms rounded out the facilities

The view of the Gulf of Mexico was awesome. It overllooked the member's-only entranceway to the gulf beach which we walked every day. There was considerable hurricane damage and beach erosion in 2005. While we were there an ongoing beach restoration project was taking place. It was amazing to see the intricate process of re-building the beach with sand dredged from other areas of the gulf a short boat trip away.

Being on Scenic Gulf Drive, you are in a more quiet area while still being just a couple minutes away from the major route along the coast. The resort is also less than 5 minutes away from a huge factory outlet mall for those interested in shopping.

We would highly recommend a stay at the Amalfi Coast Resort!

This was our 2nd time staying at a condo at the Amalfi Coast Resort. The condos are very spacious! Big enough to even share with another family if one wanted to. There are 2 large bedrooms with bathrooms attached, a large open living room and kitchen, dining room and a balcony overlooking the 2 pools and the gulf. Beach is alot less crowded than other areas such as Majestic Sun. I would definitly come back again and stay at Amalfi Coast Resort!!!

Just a lovely setting for familys and kids. Enjoyed the simple walk to the beach, don't let photos fool you the beach is a 30 second walk. Pools are cleaned everyday! You can also rent cabanas pool side for the week. Avoids having to bring all your beach stuff up. Best thing you avoid the Destin traffic, good shopping and eating withing 5 minutes.
We loved it!
