Recent Destin West Beach and Bay Resort reviews
Destin West Gulfside AMAZING!
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Our condo slept 9 - very comfortable for the 4 of us who stayed. My mother, two aunts, and myself LOVED the amazing views, the perfect Florida weather, the crystal clear water, warm white sands, and every amenity offered by the resort. The fitness center (located near the bottom floor elevator by the pool) was PERFECT! The condo was clean, spacious, and decorated cute. The balcony on the 3rd floor had spectacular views of the ocean. We spent a lot of time next door at the Ramada beach bar and grotto bar. Access to the Destin West Bayside pools and lazy river was another wonderful added bonus. I plan to return when school lets out with my two children. It's PERFECT for families as well as couples. We enjoyed the setting for a Girls' Getaway as well! I chose the perfect setting, and am counting down the days until I can return! Definitely go to Destin to try the restaurants there (Pompano Joe's, Dewy Destin, Hog's Breath), and the Crab Trap on the Boardwalk just down the beach from Destin West. There's also a nice little souvenir shop located by the Ramada grotto pool. You don't have to leave Fort Walton Beach at all! (but I suggest you do!)"

DESTIN WEST CONDOS, ROOM 304 IN THE HERON BLDG. FT. WALTON BEACH
"The condo was beautifully decorated and fully updated, what a wonderful surprise!!! Colors were the popular grey and white/blue shades with a great kitchen. The equipment in the kitchen was just like being at home. Having 2 king beds was wonderful and the mattresses were very comfortable. The only drawback is that you don't actually see the ocean itself without taking a "journey" over the bridge and walkway to finally reach the water. On the upside, the lazy river and pool is very convenient and a wonderful treat to enjoy. The roomy deck area is a wonderful place to enjoy with your family, and is comfortable with all the beautiful glider, chairs and large table. My ONLY advice is to NOT visit Florida in June, July or August unless you love HOT, HOT WEATHER! It is too hot to go out before 3-4:00 unless you are in the shade. A lock on both master bedrooms would have been nice to keep little people, like granddaughters from waking you up in the early morning!"

"We had a wonderful stay in this condominium. Destin West is in a terrific location, near an undeveloped area of beach. We loved Heron L-02; it was spacious and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the hot tub on the lanai, especially when the nights were cool. We didn't mind the walk to the beach -- especially with the covered walkway over the busy highway. The condo was well maintained, clean, and quiet. It was a terrific value and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! Shelly was incredibly responsive and works hard to ensure her guests have a great time."
