Amazing surprise !!
5/5 stars
I was looking for a place to stay in Destin for more than a week, and Destin West was an amazing surprise. Huge complex with various pools, lazy river, etc. Perfect for family with kids !! In front of the beach !!
- Eduardo

Thank you for staying. I receive a lot of positive feedback on this resort. The combination of the beach, different pools and proximity to activities on the Island make this a popular resort.

Great Place
5/5 stars
Great Condo, everything was clean and the owner went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The view was better than expected, you could see both the gulf and inlet sides, along with the national park sand dunes. Lots of pools and a lazy river and close to the pier boardwalk shops and Adventure zone, all of that within walking distance.
- Christopher

Thank you for your review. I agree the view is better than what we can capture with a camera! The location is convenient to everything, including Destin for those that want the relative quiet of Okaloosa Island, yet want to visit Destin.
