“Great family resort”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Great resort. First time to Destin area and really liked the location in Okaloosa Island. We dined in Destin but the ocean seemed nicer near Waterscape. The resort is very family oriented with a lazy river, kidde pool and another larger kidde pool. One additional pool that is heated which is nice. Resort is U shaped with views overlooking the pool area and there are six floors. The lower your room number the closer you will be toward the ocean. All rooms have some views of the ocean unless you are on the ground floor, which would be 2, as 1 is the paking garage. Gas grills are plentiful and are easy to acess. Even when busy, everyone was willing to share the grills and it was a nice coversation starter with other families that were cooking also. We rented through VRBO (Kim Lang Vacation) room 628 and had no issues and loved our condo.

was present but not overbearing. Seems as long as you follow their rules, there are no issues. We messed up and brought a glass bowl to the picnic area next to the pool and the security dude told us we were not allowed glass. He was correct, not overly rude, and once he told us he left so we kept on eating and took the glass up later. Kinda nice having the security around as late in the afternoon after several adult beverages, some tend to get a little roudy and with the security that won't happen.

Parking garage is nice and large, nice security gates into and out of the garage. Nice fitness center.

If you stay on the ground floor, there is not a lot of privacy as people are waling by your condo all the time and the view is really limited to looking at the pool. Of course, you would have the convenience of walking straight out your door to the pool. We liked the top floor, very quiet at night and plenty of elevators.

Very fun, family style resort. If it was just me and my wife, I woudl definitely go somewhere else. But with our son it was the pefect spot.

Our family has been to Waterscape for our annual beach trip for the last 5 years. Our grandchildren range in age from 1 to 10. There is something for every age group here. The older kids and adults all love the lazy river. There is a wading pool and play area for the small children. The infinity pool and the heated circle pool are also great. It's like having a water park at your back door! Now to the beach: You are right on the beach - it is literally out your back door. Each unit gets a free rental of 2 chairs and an umbrella. This is MeMe's favorite spot on the property! We will continue to visit, but hope price doesn't continue to increase. Try to go before Memorial Day for best prices.

Room Tip: We like the bottom floor so the kids can play outside your patio door.

We spent 3 nights here over the Memorial Day weekend. Won't be going back.

It's a nice place to visit but 3 nights were too many. It's the same every day when you wake up.
it's like the movie Ground Hog Day. Nothing changes, especially the view from your condo balconly, same pool, same beach, same security guards walking around the pools in a circle searching for the beach towels and bags left too early in the morning on the tables and lounge chairs as you know the pool does not open until exactly 8:00 not one minute earlier.
Watching them shoo guests away after they had just sat down at a table to drink there morning coffee and enjoy five minutes before 8:00 was not allowed.
Guests pay alot of money to stay there if they don't want people by the pool then they need to lock the gates and provide another way to access the beach. Telling people to leave the pool area at 7:45 is a bit too controlling for a resort like this one and the managment needs to take notice. I don't think we will not be the only ones to never return there are too many other choices out there.

The resort was nice with great pools. It was directly on the beach but from our room it was quite a walk to the beach. It had a tiki hut poolside with food and snacks. The food was adequate but not great. The beachside service was good but they put the chairs & umbrellas touching so they were so close together. Needed to be spread out a bit more. The beach was beautiful.

We stayed for a quick weekend at Waterscapes in Fort Walton Beach. It was a last minute booking on Bookit.com, so I wasn't sure what to expect...but I was pleasantly surprised! Condo was clean, and had all of your standard furnishings. The pool are is what really sets this condo apart from others in my opinion. The upper pool deck has an amazing splash area for 1-4 year olds, and a circular heated pool for adults. The lower pool deck has a pool geared for older children. Zero entry, with lots of fun fountains, a lily pad bridge, and a rock waterfall. There is also a nice lazy river with a waterfall, and other splash features, and a poolside tiki hut that serves Fudpucker's food and drinks. There are several nice gas grills around the pool deck that are available for use to grill out lunch or dinner. We didn't utilize it, but there is a video rental service with new releases that is free on site. The beach was clean, and chair service was included in the rental fee. My only wish is that the cleaning fee had been included...I didn't expect to pay an additional $160 upon check in. I'm sure it was written somewhere...I just failed to read it before arrival. Overall, I was very pleased with this resort, felt it was very clean, had a great entertainment area for adults and children, and we would definitely recommend this resort to families!

We absolutely love this place. The only thing i wish is that there was more reasonably priced places to eat in walking distance. The condos are amazing and we rented from VRBO and was extremely pleased. We will use them again. The pools are fantastic. We will go back over and over again.
