We stayed here for a week in July in a condo on 6th floor gulfside. It was amazing!
Loved the entire Destin West property and there was plenty to do! We spent a lot of time in the massive gulfside pool and in the lazy river on the bayside. The walk to the lazy river isn't that bad even though I see a lot of people complain about it. It took about 5 minutes and was very convenient with the walkway going over the highway so we didn't have to worry about crossing traffic.
Everything was clean and well kept and we had a wonderful time.
The only negative I can think of was the parking garage on the gulfside. I don't think it was built at the same time as the condos. If you have a lot of stuff, it may be a hassle getting it to your condo. There is no direct walkway from the parking garage level and the condo level and you have to either go up or down some stairs to access the floor. Not convenient when you are rolling luggage or a cart. They do have a ramp on the first floor that you can use but seems to be a lot of work just to get your stuff to your condo. We just carried our stuff up the stairs since we didn't have a whole lot.
Check in was very easy and fast. We did express which I would recommend to anyone staying here.
Overall was a wonderful experience in every way and can't wait to come back next year!
