“Great stay!”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

We've stayed here for the past three years and have used two different companies to rent from. We have been incredibly pleased with how well the resort is maintained and upkeep. There has always been a few issues with the cleanliness of the rooms but that is somewhat to be expected when staying on the beach (sand, etc). Will go back!

Rented through vrbo.com 1106 west Silver Beach Towers. This was managed by Compass Resorts. We walked in and the unit reeked of fish, screen on master torn up, stains all over carpet, dirt on tile, sticky rings on shelves in pantry, food stains running down the stove front and over walls. This unit needs a deep cleaning, paint and repairs! We have battled with a lingering odor all week and have gone through multiple air deodorizers. Also wifi does not work through the provider they listed. Very disappointed for the price we paid. Compass was all talk no follow through to remediate the issues. Very pricey for a smelly, dirty, beat up unit. On a positive note, it is spacious with great views. The unit has not been maintained at all and is dirty and outdated. Bring your own everything also...beach towels, hot pads, cookie sheets, pans, pillow cases you name it.

Very nice 3 bedroom condo with a large balcony looking out over the west pool and beach. Our group ranged from grade school kids age, parents in their 40's, and a grandparent in her early 70's and I think all were happy and comfortable here. Wasn't anything super fancy or over the top about it (hence the "very good" rating), but there really wasn't much of anything to complain about either. Everything worked right, the unit was clean, the kitchen was decently equipped, and the furnishings were comfortable. If I were to make suggestions at all, would be nice if there were more places to hang towels in the baths, some kind of a sheet to tell you what TV channels were what, and some kind of a binder or something with information about local attractions, activities, restaurants, etc. I have had this in other condos in Destin and appreciated it very much. We left some of our books we picked up with notes in them in with the phone books for the next guests to find. We appreciated very much the covered parking, and the elevators were very fast. Another handy thing is that the street entrance is right at a light, so anyone who is familiar with Destin traffic can appreciate that. I have stayed in Destin several times and this is my favorite place so far. It's not cheap, but then nothing much is in Destin. I would love to stay there again. For anyone reading, the Harborwalk area is fun to go check out. We had good meals at Capt Dave's, Harry T's, McGuire's, to name a few, even Fudpuckers, which can be hit or miss at times. Would NOT recommend Bubba Gump's. A couple in our group did parasailing with Just Chute Me and had a blast. We also had a great dolphin excursion on the Southern Star. Hope these recommendations are helpful for anyone reading. Love Destin! :-)

Silver Beach Towers is my husband and I's favorite. Stayed in the West tower penthouse in May 2008 (can't remember the unit) and it was amazing!! I had just graduated high school two years prior so it was a younger crowd that all put in to go, and there was a jacuzzi outside on your balcony and even a bidet! lol This August four of us are staying in W1405 (all that was left) and we cannot wait. When planning our trip, I was trying to find something with the best deal. Regardless of me already staying here and after lots of condo hunting, I found this resort did have the better priced deal! I was happy about that (: When you're in the pool, you can see the beach right there, kind of like an infinity pool; it is so close! Perfect rooms, location, price and beach spot. You won't regret staying here!

Our family stayed in a 3-bedroom condo at Silver Beach Towers (603W) in May of this year and can't wait to go back. The condo was large, clean, and well updated. The balcony has a beautiful view over the beach and ocean, which are just steps away from the building. The condo has 2 swimming pools, which were especially nice for the kids, and two hot tubs. It's located near plenty of good restaurants, and shopping is also nearby. Free, covered parking is available. Internet is available for a decent price. This was our fourth time in Destin, but it was our first at Silver Beach Towers, and we definitely plan to return.

We attended a conference in Destin the first of June and stayed in Silver Beach Towers 1503W. There were 8 of us and we were more than comfortable in the 3 BR/3BA condo. The decor was very nice. The floor plan spacious. The kitchen had all we needed (be sure to buy coffee filters and Pam cooking spray - little items we take for granted at home). The unit also contains a washer and dryer (buy detergent), which we used a lot. The beds slept very well too. Now let's talk about the highlight - the beach! The view is amazing!!! Very spacious balcony. We ate most meals out there. Beach access is very easy and so is beach chair rental (we stayed an extra day due to the airline). Beautiful, large pool. Very convenient location - complex has a traffic light at entrance which helps a lot with the Destin traffic. Walk to the Back Porch. The only flaw is the management, located at Silver Shells down the road. We waited a good 15-20 min to check-in and they weren't especially friendly. Our last day we tried to call to get an later check-out (it's 10am and our flight was at 5pm). It took over an hour to get ahold of anyone. The condo, beach, and location were worth it though! I would bring my family to this complex and unit for our vacation. So don't miss out on this beauty!

Stayed at the penthouse at Silver Beach Towers in August. Booked directly through company who manages the condo. Arrived quite early and was allowed early access to the room which was greatly appreciated. Grounds were beautiful, clean, people very friendly. Room was as would be expected for a penthouse. Would definately recommend it.
