This resort is located on the main highway going through Fort Walton Beach. It is right next door to a Fudpuckers which is quite convenient. The condo we stayed in was in the Heron on the bay side. It was very large with great furnishings.
They have several nice pools and lots of deck space for laying out. Some of the pools are heated which is nice for cooler spring break weather.
Getting to the ocean required a 5 minute walk over a land bridge which goes over the main highway which is quite congested. Guests have access to both halves of the resort, the bay side and the gulf/ocean side. The beach is quite nice and walking distance to a large pier known for good fishing and early morning dolphin watching.
The only thing lacking at this resort is food/drink service. You have to lug your own coolers around if you plan on spending the whole day at the pool or ocean as we did at times.
All around a great place, with great views. Definitely on our list of places to return to.
