About Diane

My husband and I and three grown children enjoy every visit to the Palms of Destin Resort and Conference Center. It is a wonderful resort for all ages and is affordable for families. We own 2 units at the Palms of Destin and often use both for family getaways.

Diane purchased this condo in 2007

This property has all the amenities of a large resort however the price is affordable for families. It is located in the heart of Destin with shuttle service across the street to the beach. The pool is fantastic and one of the nicest in Destin. There is the large lagoon pool, an adult pool or heated pool in the winter months, a 25 person hot tub, and a children's pool with a splash fountain.

What makes this condo unique

This resort is located near all the activities that families enjoy on vacation. There are nice restaurants near by, a water park, putt putt golf, the beach, go kart rides, movie theaters and shopping at the Commons and Silver Sands outlet mall.

We enjoyed our stay at the Palms! The pool is really great, the view was fabulous and the condo was clean and comfortable! Having a washer and dryer was great too. We would love to go back!

I have nothing but good things to say about my trip to Destin and my stay at The Palms of Destin. I traveled with my husband and our 2 small children. We chose The Palms because of the pool. Our youngest child hates the sand so we spent most of our time at the pool. From check-in to check out, we had a wonderful experience. Diane was such a pleasure to work with and was so quick to answer all my questions. We walked in to a spotless condo with a beautiful view. We were on the 12th floor and I was concerned we would have to wait a long time for the elevator. We never had to wait! The staff is friendly and always smiled and said hello. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay, The Palms of Destin is it!

Great property; Very helpful owner! Will book again!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent spring break week here with our 5 & 8 year old kids. The condo has a perfect layout for a family of four (King bed for us in one room, trundle bed in the other bedroom for the kids). The top floor location guarantees great views of the ocean. There are public beaches and beachfront dining just across Highway 98 with plenty of parking, or you can ride the resort's beach shuttle if you prefer. There are a couple family entertainment parks down the road with rides and go-karts if you get a day that isn't quite beach weather.

The owner is great and always willing to help. She provided us with her cell phone number so we could get all the info we needed before and during the stay.

We arrived before check-in time, so the staff provided us with wristbands for the pool so we could soak up the sun while the condo was cleaned. There is a Walmart just about a quarter mile away making it easy and quick to stock the condo with food after check-in. There are several reasonably priced boat rental places just down the street. Be sure to consider a day on the water at Crab Island.

When we go back to Destin this will be the first place we look!

Condo was perfect for our family but the actual resort was very disappointing.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the condo was big enough for our family. Very clean and came with everything we needed for our stay. However, the actual resort was very disappointing. The pool was nasty and needed cleaning. The hallways were so loud we weren’t able to sleep. I know it was Spring Break but beside the halls the pool was crowded too. Kids had music playing loudly, beer everywhere and even a beer funnel which started a whole other conversation with my daughter. I know the resort can’t control anything like noise. The one staff member we did see wasn’t nice at all and acted like she didn’t want to answer my question. If I could stay at this condo at another resort I would but I will not be staying at the Palms ever again. Diane was awesome! She answered me quickly while we were on our trip and made sure everything was ok! We did have a great time in Destin!

Owner's Response: Meghan, I wish you had contacted me regarding the noise etc. I was in the area and would have come to the Palms and contacted our Condo Association Manager as well as Board members to see what should have done to control the noise and the behavior. Spring Break for college is usually over by Easter and the resort does not usually rent to unattended guest behaving badly. I am surprised that this was allowed to go on. I plan to send you comments on to find our why the on site management company and our security guards did not step in and address the problems. I have never had a review with these issues and I will get to the bottom of what happened. I realize that this will not assist you as you can not get back the days that you would have enjoyed at the pool which is usually spotless and a very pleasant place to spend time. I have other resorts and would love to offer you a discount at one of my other units if a stay in Destin or Panama City Beach will work for you another time. Thank you for letting me know that your experience was not what was expected so that these issues can be addresses by our Board and our Condo Association manager. Diane

So easy and nice!

  • 5 of 5

Diane was so easy to work with! I stayed with my friends here for spring break and everything was perfect! The Palms is so nice and the shuttle was a huge help with getting to the beach. The shuttle also takes you to Harborwalk Village which was very convenient! The pool area was so fun during the day. Overall a great stay!
