Amazing View, Felt Safe During Nate
When we left for our vacation, we didn't realize hurricane Nate was headed towards the Gulf Coast. Despite 40+mph winds through the night, we slept like babies. Another resident said the doors were rated to 140mph, and the building built with storms in mind. The free movie rentals were a hit with our kids during the storm.
Overall, the property is well-maintained. Our A/C went out during the storm, but RealJoy had a repair guy in our unit a couple hours later (on a Saturday night), and he got it working in just a few minutes. The master bed is very firm... too much for my wife, but good for me. The pool is awesome for the kids (and adults), with a HOT tub, a small heated pool, and the large lagoon.
The valet was super helpful in finding a restaurant, helping us get groceries to our room, and very friendly. The parking garage felt safe, and it was nice to have our car parked indoors during the storm. Walmart is a (safe) walking distance, and the resort is close to shopping and dining.
A few things to point out for both management and future guests:
Apparently, smoking is allowed pretty much anywhere outside on the premises. Frequently we would have cigarette smoke float up from another balcony and into our door. Annoyingly, many guests were smoking around the pool and hot tub. Would be nice if it were non-smoking.
We never really saw any staff making rounds. We learned the front desk is not really for RealJoy renters - we need to call a number to get help.
The carpets in this unit are due for a cleaning. They aren't gross... it's just time to clean them.
The lobby and pool area really need some music. They are soul-less. If you're used to resorts like Hyatt and Marriott, you'll definitely notice this missing. Just adding some island music would make it feel completely different.
If you have younger kids, don't expect to walk to the beach. You must cross a busy 4-lane divided highway with no cross walk, and drivers aren't expecting pedestrians. Much easier to drive a couple blocks. A crosswalk would help, but that's the city's problem, perhaps.
While we understand cleanup takes a while after a storm, I would expect simple things like the pool and pool deck to get started sooner. The storm was over Sunday morning, but the pool was still in the same condition on Monday morning, leaves/dirt in pool and deck chairs stacked and tied up.
Conclusion: We will definitely be back! No deal-breakers, just some room to improve.

The Palms Resort was family friendly & the pool area was great.
My family & I enjoyed our stay at The Palm Resort. The pool area is amazing! The only negative thing l would say about the condo is the carpet needs to be cleaned.

Great Condo - Beautiful Beach
Absolutely loved the condo an resort - great place to stay. Condo was clean and nicely updated. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook. King size bed was comfortable. 12th floor view facing the pool was amazing. The pool is absolutely beautiful and the beach is awesome. Best vacation ever. Can't wait to come back again and enjoy another vacation here.

Beautiful Resort and Condo
This was the first time that I stayed at the resort. I will be back! Condo was very clean and well equipped. Thought the resort had a lot to offer. Pool and pool area we're beautiful! Resort comes with bell hop and valet
service at no extra charge a plus when your on the 12th floor. See ya next year!
Wonderful to hear! Thanks for staying with us, we hope you visit again soon. We have some fantastic winter specials!
I found the room to be not clean, the front desk was very unhelpful. There were no carts available to bring in luggage. The shuttle to the beach and shops was unreliable at best. The pool had so many leaves and other various things floating on the top you could just scoop them out with your hand. I am very disappointed as we plan another trip to Destin in July and would have liked to have stayed here again.
We are sorry to hear about your experience at this lovely property. It sounds like the majority of your issues were really with the onsite property manager and out of our control. We wish you had called us so that we could have addressed your complaints with our contacts in the building and we could have sent a cleaning crew to correct anything issues that existed. We are happy to report that the homeowner's association has taken control over the property management of the Palms of Destin and many things are much improved. Thank you for your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
