We had a great stay at a reasonable price in a 3 bedroom unit Gulfside 108. The only thing I wish they offered was a bar/grill type location around the pool and lazy river. The Ramada next door has this and you're allowed to use their facility also. Highly recommended

We stayed for 1 week (Feb 3-10, 2017). Unit was 2 bedrooms. Master was very comfortable with full ensuite. The second room was more of a hallway with galley style bunk beds and a curtain for a door. There was a bathroom with shower attached to this area. During our stay there was a massive storm (tornado went through Louisiana...

Booked Heron 608 from Panhandle Getaways (through Hotwire). Room was great with all the nice amenities, and it was a short walk to the pool / beach. Pools were nice - there is a lazy river and there are warm and hot pools. Nice area to play with the kids. Enjoyed everything except that the Wi-Fi in the room did...

This is a great family, romantic, solo get-away! The owner is very easy professional and so easy to deal with! This Penthouse Unit is a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo in Sandpiper Bldg on the Bay. Views are wonderful, especially from the rooftop patio! Very tastefully furnished and beachy without being gaudy. A short walk on the skywalk takes you...

Destin West Heron 501 is a beautifully laid out 3 BR/3BA condo which is decorated to suit its surroundings of peaceful and natural beauty. With comfy beds and nice furniture, the condo is clean and crisp throughout. The location on the Bay provides constant boating activity and watching the wonderful shorebirds in their native habitat is great. The condo is...

We stayed in the Heron style condos at Destin West resort and were very impressed by the resort. We stayed in February before it was too busy, so it was definitely quiet and not very crowded. The condo we stayed in was very nice, clean, and offered a good view of the complex (from the 6th floor balcony). The smaller...

My wife and kids stayed at the beach and bay resort for our first annual October gulf vacation. We stayed in villa 401 and it was great for a small family. The unit was clean and the washer and dryer was a huge asset with little ones that get messy playing. We went in October and it wasn't very busy...

We rented a corner studio condo for myself, my husband, and our 1-year old, for a great rate I might add. (Independent renters) It was like a swanky hotel room with panoramic views and a wrap-around balcony. So awesome! It wasn't a beach-front condo, but we did have a view of the beach to the east and lots of room...

Stayed at RV park in mid October. Fantastic RV park and great time of year to visit. Summer crowds were gone and plenty of room. RV park is part of Ramada resort across the street. One of the best beaches in the country. Would definitely stay again, may try the spring before the crowds arrive. Many restaurants within walking distance....

We go to Destin West almost every year. It's a great place to take your family. The lazy river is huge and awesome. Having access to the Ramada Inn pools is also nice. It's clean and the staff is very friendly. We're looking forward to our next stay there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Destin West offers the best of many worlds. We encompass both sides of the island, with beautiful views of both the Choctawhatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico from our family-friendly condos and penthouses. Tired of the sand? Relax on the deck of our large Gulf-side pool while kids enjoy the adjacent Splash Garden. Or float in the Lazy River at our Bay-side tropical pool oasis. We feature villa units all the way to 3 bedroom fully equipped condominiums, all with private balconies. Penthouses feature double decks with roof-top private hot tubs. ... more   less
