We checked in on 9/29. Room 201. Due to COVID policy changes, I asked what the housekeeping arrangements were (we had a five night stay). I was told service was actually being resumed 10/1. On 10/1 I stopped at the front desk and said we didn't need service that day. Was told the service was actually resuming 10/2. I pointed out that there were several stains on our couch that needed attention but didn't have to be done during our stay and was met with a blank stare. I stopped at the front desk on 10/2 and said we could probably use some housekeeping service. (Our trash was getting full, and we had a towel problem due to a leak with the shower.) Towels and trash. That's all. I was then told we had to order something like that the day before. Huh? The shower flooded the bathroom floor. The water ran along the top edge of the tub by the spigot, even with the shower curtain in place. We adjusted the head and stuffed towels along the top edge to prevent the floods. I think the tub was installed crooked, creating a drainage problem. We were hanging the soaked towels up to dry in order to reuse them but that takes two days+ in Florida. I asked for some extra towels twice and they were delivered to the room fairly promptly. They don't have them at the front desk. When I checked out I again mentioned the stains on the couch (they really were very obvious) and the front desk staff apologized profusely, which is what I would normally expect at a Marriott. We left a mountain of towels in the bathroom and full trash cans. Breakfast was fine albeit the same thing every day. A full hot breakfast with cold options, also. Definitely not a grab and go. Facility was generally nice. Note-this is a pet-friendly hotel. There were LOTS of pets. BTW if it's raining there isn't any overhang out front. Plan on getting wet.

Spacious, clean 2 bedroom condo with beautiful resort grounds and amenities. Very relaxing for a family vacation. Enjoyed complimentary bike rentals to ride in Baytowne. Great restaurants in walking distance. Kids had fun at all the play areas, pools and at Baytowne wharf. Great beaches with soft white sand, clear clean warm water. Most beautiful beaches in the U.S. Our family has been coming here for years and we all love it!!

Arrived early. Our room wasn't ready, but they gave us our wristbands to enjoy ourselves on the property until it was. Staff is very friendly. Shuttle service to beach if you don't want to walk or drive. Beautiful resort. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this property July 30 to August 3, 2021 - Two adults and our two young adult daughters. Our room was awesome and very roomy. Room one was a king bed and the second room was two double beds. The king bedroom has a room bathtub too. Nice that the suite has a washer and dryer. Property has two pools and a hot tub - the one pool has three hammocks that were fun to lay on and relax. Front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The beautiful beach was a drive across the main road and with your pass you were able to park for free in the lot. Wharf is nearby and outlets are just a short drive away. This property offers a movie theater and other things that we didn't use as we explored the area of Destin. My only complaint is the couch (because it is a hideaway bed) is very stiff and only one living room chair. The kitchen table chairs are heavy and you can hear the room above us when they move their chairs. Overall it was a great location and property. Would stay here again.
