Can't go wrong with this resort...

  • 5 of 5

I always try to leave a review so my apologies for this being a few months late. This was our second experience staying at Destin West and as always my family had a blast. The resort has multiple pools to keep the kiddos occupied (they love the lazy river), is close to the beach and an easy drive to restaurants/shops. This particular unit was very clean, had all the utensils one would need in the kitchen and was in overall good shape. It's located on the 3rd floor (same level as the skybridge) and only a couple condos down from the garage which made loading and unloading a cinch. Overall was a good condo and I would recommend it to anybody.

Some negatives were, the PS2 was not in the unit as advertised (not a huge deal as I prefer my kids not to be immersed in electronics while on vacation but don't advertise something then remove it), the touchscreen game had been removed (same thoughts as the PS2), and the kids bunkroom needs a curtain to keep that area darker. All in all those are not big deals. However, my one huge problem was with the check-in time. I understand that these condos are cleaned thoroughly and ours was but with a check-out time of 10a the crews have 8 hours to clean before the next group of customers arrive. We were allowed in at 6:30p (the day is pretty much gone) giving us just enough time to unpack then let the kids swim to release some energy from being stuck in the car. Maybe the resort should look into hiring an additional cleaning crew to help on check-in/out days? Also, and this is just a footnote. For the past 2 years there has been a ton of seaweed along the resort's beach. I know this cannot be controlled but if you are looking for crystal clear water you will not find it in this area in late July - August. So the kids could actually enjoy the ocean for one day we went to the public park (5 dollars) and the water was crystal clear! Destin West is still one of my favorite places though minus the seaweed!

Acceptable condo, great resort

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in this condo with our 5 yr old son & 2 yr old daughter. The resort is really nice. Thank goodness we also had access to the Ramada pool next door since the resort turned the heat off to their outdoor pool. I was a little surprised that there wasn't a rental agreement or any confirmation of our booking other than verbally with the owner. This would have been preferred since the owner got our check-in date wrong and the resort management company called us a day early to see why we weren't checking in. I also emailed the owner a week prior to our visit to find out when check-in/out was & never received a response. 

PROS:

-Nicely decorated condo

-Kitchen is fully stocked & even had a few toddler spoons

-Centrally located at the resort with easy access to the pool, splash park & the beach

- Bunk beds work great for the kids & they loved having their own TV

CONS:

- The floor was so dirty that I kept my shoes on all week & my daughter's feet actually looked dirty after walking around barefoot. There were goldfish crackers under the coffee table & they weren't ours. The tile & carpet really needs a thorough cleaning.

- Wireless router didn't work & we are tech savvy

- The video game is advertised pretty heavily in the listing & it wasn't even in the condo

Owner's Response: Yes, Destin West is a beautiful resort. Sorry, the touchscreen arcade game was being repaired during your stay. It is back in the unit and ready for action. Housekeeping was notified about the floors and was quickly taken care of. This unit has a wonderful 3rd story ocean view and is very well stocked. I would love to host you and your family. John
