Old resort. Needs updating. No a/c in lobby or elevators. Try coming off the beach in july in Florida and no a/c in elevator or hallways. Not very welcoming. If you plan on using the gym, make sure you bring a towel and plenty of water because no water fountain to be found. Weights are as old as jack lalane!... More

I would give it a 1/2 star if available. Do your research before booking. Staff is rude, beach is way too crowded. If you rent a beach chair they place you tip To tip of the umbrella. People have to crawl under you to get to the water. Meanwhile 0 people on both sides of the roped off space. We... More

The views are great, but the buildings are older, and not were not well maintained. The beach area is overcrowded, and the people are rude. There are many better options in Destin. Save your money and stay elsewhere. Additionally, the area itself is much more crowed than years before.
