The condo was prettier than it looked online. Very roomy with beautiful views. The management was fantastic. The resort was beautiful and very secure and maintained. Conveniently located to anything you need. Very family oriented place to vacation!! I would suggest a few things that the owner could consider for convenience. Hooks or towel bars added to the bathrooms for beach towels. An exhaust fan in the master bath shower, a safety bar and more nonslip grips on the shower floor. Also, for families with infant children maybe a pack-n-play and a high chair for those that fly in to Destin. I'm not complaining by any means. We loved our vacation and are looking forward to going back next year!!
We stayed in this unit in July 2015 and absolutely loved our stay. The resort, pool and beach are exceptional.
The unit itself could use some additional updating but it is still very nice and very accommodating. Plenty of room for the seven of us to cook, eat, sleep, relax, play games and store all of our stuff. There were a few issues upon our arrival which the Compass staff promptly addressed and corrected. I would stay in this unit again.
One item that might be important to some and isn't obvious from the pictures... The living room and master bedroom have access to the main balcony facing the beach while the other two bedrooms share an additional balcony that faces the front of the resort. Not a deal breaker but it might be useful to know. That balcony only had one chair, another chair there would be nice but honestly we only used that balcony to get better cell reception, check out the weather, etc.
We did pay the beach company to reserve a couple of chairs for the week and I definitely feel that was worth it. Guests are allowed to set up their own chairs and/or umbrellas behind the rental chairs, just not in front of them and no "tents or canopies" are allowed period. The kids loved the pool and we all used the hot tub. Having The Sandbar available for snacks and drinks was a big plus for us.
We were very disappointed by the level of furnishings and cleanliness of the unit. 3br unit to sleep 6-8 yet they only have enough patio furniture to sit 4. Beds were extremely uncomfortable and pillows were worthless.
On the upside, the views were great though one should take note that this complex sits at the end of the runway of the airport and it can be noisy at times of busy travel especially on the weekends. The managing company was very responsive to the issues and tried to step up to the plate. I would definitely rent from Compass but not this unit in the future. There are much better choices of units for the money.
