You couldn't pay me enough to go back to this place. Poorly poorly managed!

  • 1 of 5

I am usually not one to even give a review but this place was not what I expected for the price we paid. Besides the condo being unkept, the facilities (elevator, hallways,etc) were also less than accommodating. Yes, Florida is hot so when I walk into a building, elevator, room in the co do, I expect a sense of refreshment. No, not this place. If we tried to turn the air down the AC unit would completely shutdown. Another thing was the dryer in our unit. I decided to take apart the lint trap, I pulled out a heaping large plate full of lint that had been blocking the passage of air, therefor not being able to dry clothes for 6 of us. Which brings me to my next complaint (by the way there won't be enough room to list all of my complaints) they should never say this place sleeps 6. Maybe uncomfortably 6. The furniture is too big in each room to be able to move w all luggage. And we had 1 in a pack n play, can't imagine if we had all adult children. Oh, and the washer and dryer was shoved into a very small closet in between 2 doors (entering 2nd bedroom and bathroom). No early morning wash could be done. I had to wash all the sheets and comforters in the condo bc they smelled like they had been slept on for weeks. Drawers were broke, screws lose to hold knobs in, toilets kept running water the entire last night we were there. Balcony is teeny tiny but you could 'see' the Gulf, if anyone opened a door in the hallway of the complex every door in our unit would make a noise, the unlimited movies were a joke, not even a redbox and had graffiti all over it. I took a picture to prove it! Lady working checkout and checkin was very less than pleasant. Destin is a busy busy place, there was NO LIGHT AT OUR INTERSECTION. Getting out of the condo for dinner or shopping was a complete disaster. We never took the shuttle but the beach straight across from us flew a red flag our entire vacation due to bacteria from Pensacola to Okaloosa beach. Sad to say but I've always heard how great Destin was and due to all the people I know that go to Destin year after year we decided to give it a try. This condo alone has deterred us from ever coming back to Destin. I sincerely hope all RealJoy properties are not like this. If they are you should steer clear from spending thousands on their condos. A staycation would have been more of a vacation after this trip. Good Luck!

Owner's Response: We are sad to hear about your experience. We wish you had contacted us about the a/c and the toilet running, those are items we could have addressed for you. It probably would have been a good idea for you to have taken the shuttle instead of trying to navigate traffic. We are sorry to hear that an employee at the Palms was unfriendly to you at checkout. It sounds like a combination of a lot of issues beyond our control converged to give you a less than enjoyable stay. Again, sorry to hear about this.

It was nice

  • 3 of 5

Very clean! The outside amenities could use some improvement. Had we know about the food service in the lounge area it would have been nice. Met the 2 managers for that and they were super nice and I hope they can make the changes that they have in mind, it would make things a lot better. Also, I swear we were told there was a place to grill and there wasn't, the front desk staff could have a better approach about it when asked. They were not as friendly. Shuttle service that I thought was for everyday of our stay, was not. I wished that they would have told us better places to go on the beach instead of dropping us off at the busiest part of the beach.. considering it was our first time and didn't know our way around. All in all, for it being a holiday week that we were there, it was a good visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Dalton, we are glad you had a good visit and found the condo very clean. Information on the availability of food service in the lounge was not a part of our marketing package, but will be addressed for future advertisements. This property does not have a communal area for grilling and is not advertised as such. Since it was your first visit to Destin, we wish you would have contacted us during your stay. We would have provided information regarding the shuttle service and recommended places to go. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.

Great Condo - Not the best Complex

  • 2 of 5

Our condo was fantastic. Extremely comfortable and very well appointed. However, the Palms property was not so good. The staff is not friendly, the parking situation and the location of the parking garage was annoying, and the pool was not clean.

Owner's Response: David, glad you found the condo fantastic, extremely comfortable and well appointed. The property staff are not Real Joy employees and we apologize for their unfriendliness. We are sorry you found the parking situation annoying, but it is beyond our control and cannot be easily changed. The cleanliness of the pool is controlled by the onsite building management. We wish you would have contacted us regarding this issue during your stay and we would have made the onsite manager aware the pool needed to be cleaned. Thank you for your feedback.
