“Nice Place BUT AVOID CORNER UNITS”
Reviewed July 31, 2008

We enjoyed the location, beach access, pools and the view, BUT on our 3rd night, we discovered a KNOWN building flaw that cost us 4 nights' sleep. Our corner unit, #806 had all the extra vistas that go with a corner unit, but the cost of the unobstructed balcony view was a VERY loud humming vibration that kept my whole family up for 4 nights straight.

Apparently, anytime the wind is between 10-20 mph (which is 80% of the time at the beach), the wind causes the metal balcony railing to violently vibrate - into the attached master b-room wall and throughout the duct work. We discovered this on our 3rd and every subsequent night. The building maint. man confirmed that "it's that way most of the time, and the sound can be deafening." He said they've tried everything they can think of to fix it, but nothing has worked.

Anyway, we went to our rental company, Ocean Reef, and they were completely unresponsive - offering us a 5% refund (for our 4 nights of misery). This was after they sent a guy to inspect it, who admitted that he couldn't sleep with that noise either?

My guess is the other (non-corner) units don't experience this issue, but I wouldn't suggest an East corner unit to my worst enemy.

My famiy and I have enjoyed this resort for the past 4 years. The rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The resort has 2 pools which are both very nice. The pool on the beach is why we keep going back! It is great to be able to lay at the pool and still have the feeling that you are laying on the beach. The resort sets up 2 chairs and an umbrella for you each day and you also receive 2 free movie rentals each day. There are also dolphins that swim by almost every morning. It is a wonderful place to vacation with your family. We have looked at many resorts in the Destin area and keep going back to this one because it is just so great!

We loved our stay at Leeward Key. The condos were nice. We enjoyed the option of two pools. This was a wonderful place to go with children. It was really close to all of the shopping and eating in Destin. Great place!
