Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful! We had a family vacation in this condo and it was PERFECT. So homey right in the middle of paradise. Whether we stayed in and cuddled in comfy beds and watched tv while it rained, enjoyed the AMAZING view of the resort style pool from the beautiful balcony, or had a short trip to the beach, nothing was a bit less than perfect! I will forever book this exact condo every summer we come back to Destin from Texas!

The Palms #2803 Destin, Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Palms #2803 was wonderful. The condo inside was absolutely beautiful. Very Floridian. It was completely stocked with everything we could possibly need. The unit was clean and ready when we arrived. The unit was very insulated and quite. Never head our neighbors. Close to the elevators which was nice. Our view was amazing. We had a beautiful view of the pool, ocean and the bay. The access to everything was so easy and close to the grocery stores and shopping. The best beach access in Destin. Compass Reality made selecting our unit so easy. They were available to listen to our needs and wants for this vacation. Hopefully next year we will be able to book this same Unit. Our only regret was we didn't stay longer.

Don't stay here! We stayed April 2017

  • 1 of 5

The pictures are very deceiving. The entire "resort" is run down and in need of repair. The condo we stayed in was dirty including stains all over the carpet and dirty linens. The pool area is dirty and if you could find a lounge chair and table they were broken. The staff...oh wait there isn't staff anywhere! The pool bar is never open so don't expect to use that either. Huge waste of money!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your experience was not what you expected. I contacted my management company immediately after reading your review to determine why your concerns had not been handled to your satisfaction. My management company does not have a record of your contacting them. They do have a notation that when they called the condo within 24 hours of your arrival, that the guest who answered the phone indicated they everything was fine. I am very responsive to my guest and I do not have any notations that you called or emailed me to ask for assistance. I would have contacted the Resort management COA or my management company to address any concerns you had. I hope you will allow me another chance to provide you with a great vacation experience. I would be happy to offer you a nice discount at this resort or at another property that I own in the Destin area if you would like to return. My management company has an excellent reputation in the Destin area. We would have done what ever was needed to ensure that you had a great vacation experience. I wish you had contacted me directly at the beginning of your stay so that I could have resolved any issues in a timely manner. Diane

Great owner and great service!

  • 5 of 5

I went with a group of friends, and we had a blast!

The condo was in great condition, and the owner was very attentive to our individual needs.

Although we were not yet 25 years old, she worked out an arrangement with us so we could enjoy a comfortable beach trip.

I highly recommend this condo to any responsible renter.
