“Don't go here!!!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is the worst , BY FAR, of any place we have ever stayed. The staff was so non friendly, the unit was equipped with old and out dated and uncomfortable furniture, beds were not
comfortable.and the kitchen was not equipped well at all. Right on the highway so very noisy... Pool sign outside stated no one with diarrhea allowed in pool. Are you kidding me!!!!!!! Don't go!!

Room Tip: No good room.

I found this place online and as it happened, a gentleman who owned a studio in a timeshare program there rented it to me for $1100 for TWO weeks. First and foremost, try to find accommodations in Destin for that price. Once we got there we found the place to be ok. However, and THREE weeks later, this place felt like home. Everything we asked for, we got without hesitation. The staff was way above average and very friendly. The beach across the street was ok, but mostly we drove about a mile down the street to Henderson State Park. For a mere $6.00 per day, it was well worth it.

I absolutely loved this place, and I will never forget mt experience there.

I had a great time at Club Destin. The location of the place is very good you have many places nearby. When you first see the Condos from the outside it can be dissapointing. When you enter to lobby the staff are very welcoming and helpful; Frank was super nice. We got to the Condos early and I was very thankful to know that our room was ready to go. The room smell wasnt pleasant but we got it solved with Lysol Spray. I loved that they had an indoor and outdoor pool plus the hot tub; we got to enjoy all 3 of them. When it rain the indoor pool was very useful! I wasnt so happy for the private beach access since crossing the street took forever; yet the beach was amazing. I would had prefer to be on the beach so when it stopped raining i could enjoy the beach easily and not have to walk through the traffic again. It is more of a family Resort so you can see many children over the weekend yet it is very calm and relaxing! Had a great summer vacation!!!

This was a last minute trip, and most hotels were booked. The reviews of Club Destin were mixed, but we decided to take a chance. What a pleasant surprise! From outside, the hotel is unimpressive. But the six-person suite was wonderful. Everything was clean, and the kitchen was equipped beyond anything I have seen in a short-term rental. The indoor pool was a perfect place to relax after a day on the beach: perfect temperature in and out of the water - pleasant AC with none of that stultifying humidily that indoor pools often produce. The only downside was the hike to the beach. You have to cross a congested four-lane highway, walk a block down the street, and then navigate an alley between two highrise hotels--all told, about 1/4 mile. But overall, the Club Destin is an excellent value and worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Some suites have an oven; others only a cooktop. Same price, so ask for a suite with an oven if you...

We love staying at Club Destin Resort. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Our first time there our daughter (who was 2 at the time) had managed to vomit all over her car seat on the way to the hotel. We told the staff member what happened and he checked us in early so we could take care of cleaning the mess. Fast forward 4 years later and we still stay at CDR every time we go to Destin. They are the most affordable place to stay and it is in the center of all the action. Our girls ages 2 and 7 love the kids activities that they provide every day during the summer season. We always come home with wonderful memories from our trip. The rooms are nice, clean and we love the fact that we have the kitchen in the room. We usually cook a few times while we are there just to save money. The indoor pool is great for those days when it is just too hot outside or raining. Our oldest daughter loves the movie room. We especially love the fact that it is right across the street from our favorite pizza place, Merlin's! This is the place to stay especially if you are on a budget! We were coming back from Disneyworld recently and decided to make a last minute stop in Destin. Since we had just got back from an expensive trip we decided to stay at a super budget place in Fort Walton. Biggest mistake ever. We should of just paid the small amount of money extra and stayed where we knew we would be okay and did not have to fear for our lives. Never again will we make that mistake. Club Destin Resort is our home away from home!

Room Tip: Effeciency rooms are just enough for our family of 4 but if Mom and Dad would like more privacy then...

We got a room for 1100 for 2 weeks! Great value! Room has mini kitchen. Great indoor pool. Didn't use outdoor pool. Henderson beach is beautiful
. Didn't like the small beach area that comes with this place. Next time will stay out of the heart of Destin. Traffic was here sous the week of the 4th, but has slowed dramatically this week. Would recommend for couples with children who like amusements and water parks asthey are within walking distance. If you come, make sure you drive to Navarre pier and take the scenic road to Pennsocola. The views are breathtaking and the are is totally undeveloped for miles.

Well we just checked out of Club Destin this past Sun (7/1). Let's first get out of the way that they should drop the word resort and condo. I think this probably use to be a motel and it was renovated to have some indoor rooms and pool. The 1 BR is nice with spacing (2 beds sep from the "den" 2 sep baths, 2 flatscreens, 1 full frige and stove) Its really not that bad. The efficiency is no more than a decent sized motel or hotel room. The movie or "hospitality" room is okay but they need some newer seats for it and a bigger movie selection. The indoor pool was nice. Never saw any activities going on. That was my 1st trip to Destin so the streets are confusing as when they said across from the beach, I thought we were still on front beach road or on the main strip just across the street. In reality it really is a 4 lane highway of 98. Once u crossed the hwy u go in between two highrises down a little sidewalk path. Its just a few min to walk down the path but the time-taker is crossin the street. You have to be ready to get across as soon as there's a break in traffic. Once u get on the beach, there are a few stretch of chairs to rent for $25. The beach situation didn't bother me at all. I had a bag and my baby who is 2 asnd my family was able to get chairs on the beach so it was okay.
All in all, the place wasn't that bad. The fact that there is an indoor pool is good. Our rooms were clean and they let us check in @ 1 instead of 4. I wouldn't choose this place again if I wanted to stay in a condo or resort, but if I wanted a cheaper place to stay and couldn't afford any where else I would. The rooms should be like $70-80 and not in the $100's. Please be warned though, it is in no way a condo or resort and the pics on the site are pretty accurate.
