Love this property

  • 4 of 5

I love this property. The only few complaints I have is the Wi-fi is not up to expectations and there was not any salt and pepper in the condo, so if you are staying in the condo then you will need to bring your own seasoning. The bed was very very comfortable. My son had to sleep on the fold out couch because there is no television in the bunk room, which was not a big deal but we did have to make the couch every night and put it up the next day. We will be staying here again.

Wonderful place, but needs minor upgrades/fixes

  • 3 of 5

I am taking away 1 star for the trash and 1 star (I thought about 2, but less than 3 stars just isn't right!) for upgrades that need to be made to the unit itself.

Destin West Beach and Bay Resort is amazing. We were there in 2016 in both June and August. The lazy river, splash pad, and just general location are all wonderful. It's walking distance to restaurants, water sports, close to the Gulfarium, and just far enough out of Destin to avoid bumper to bumper traffic if going to a restaurant down the street. Lulu's is a MUST though! This stay we did notice a lot of trash around the lazy river (paper wrappers, cans, etc). Our first night, our building was struck by lightening. This caused the oven to go out. Maintenance said they would be up to try and fix it, but didn't come until the next day when I called again and was NOT nice. So much for that night's dinner! :(

The following morning someone came and rewired it to bypass something and make it stay on when we turned it on. We had no issues with it the rest of the stay. *I was told this happened to all in the of the "02" rooms in this building.*

Upon arrival, there was some weird fan in the unit that the maids had not removed. They came in to remove it right after we arrived. The unit had a weird smell for a bit, which I assume is why they had that fan. We got airfreshner at the store and that fixed it. While the maids were in there, I did also point out to them that the top bunk rail is VERY loose which is totally unsafe. They didn't sat anything, just wrote it down. They did have on Destin West uniforms. We took the mattress off of the top bunk for my son to sleep on the floor instead. No way I trusted it and I surely didn't want to be responsible if it completely broke. You also have to "play with" the blinds in the bedroom so people can't see in. Anyone walking by can see in if they stop and try looking. Kind of creepy! Comparing this unit to others, it certainly needs upgrades that would not cost a ton of money. We do plan on returning to Destin West next summer. I would stay in this unit again because this place is so fun, but really hope that upgrades and simple things are fixed. If not, I will look into other units first.

Very great vacation

  • 4 of 5

The stay was great. We really enjoy the resort.....our second time to this resort. The condo was nice but things I would suggest......non carpet flooring and black out drapes or something to add privacy. People can see right into the master from the hallway and the blinds don't shut well enough to hide it.

Very nice condo.

  • 4 of 5

The place was great. It smelled nice and was clean.

It only could use a couple minor improvements:

Ice maker was slow.

A couple of chairs on balcony were worn.

Wifi did not reach main bedroom effectively.

View was great. Loved the big tv in front.

Overall nice place. I would definitely return.

Great Family Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our grandkids had a wonderful time! The home was clean as well as the whole complex. Staff was friendly and helpful. We are Floridians ourselves and even though the weather took a turn towards cold...the kiddos had a heated pool to swim in! Plenty to do in the area...we are deff planning a return visit to Destin West. Same condo as well. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed coffee in the mornings on the balcony albeit wrapped in a blanket..lol
