A dirty condo, broken bed and poorly maintained facilities lead to a poor experience. Go Elsewhere!
We stayed in a different resort in Destin last year which was similarly priced, so our expectation was that we should expect a similar experience this year. When we arrived a the condo the bathrooms had not been cleaned--- the showers were nasty. The sheets on our bed had pubic hairs on them. The actual frame of our bed was broken, which led to the bed sagging significantly in the middle (and a terrible night's sleep). We called maintenance and were told they would be out right away, unfortunately we had to call multiple days over a three day period before anyone came out to fix the bed.
We loved the beach, but unfortunately there were not always beach chair set out in a timely manner for us. The other resorts had chairs and umbrellas set up early in the morning, but on 2 days our were not set up until the afternoon. On one day they were not set up at all, so we had to make due with our towels.
The pool and hot tub were also filthy. We swam every day and it was clear that the pool had not been cleaned out during out stay. We did see someone wipe the side walls down, but they were not vaccumed during our stay. On top of that, the maintenance crew blew leaves and debris into the pool while we were using it. There were no filters on the pool, so the debris just floated in the pool the entire time. The hot tub was located in a separate room, and the same pieces of trash were in that room (on the floor under the benches) the entire duration of our trip.
We love the area, but our resort was dirty and not maintained well. We are reasonable people and understand that sometimes things happen, but not cleaning the facilities over the course of an entire week, not having chairs and umbrellas set up and not fixing a broken bed for three days is unacceptable in my opinion. We will not be staying in a Sea Oats resort again.
We love the area but will not be staying

Beautiful, spacious condo with with great view
Sea Oaks room 302 in the Ft. Walton Beach area is a very beautiful and spacious condo with a great beach view.

1) Parking is inadequate , although rule say you must have a parking pass, it appeared random beach goers were parking there, did not see any security staff there during our stay.
2) Exterior of building looked dated and unkept, needs paint, new doors, reminded me of a cheap rundown motel.
3) Construction going on during the day, too much noise and equipment.
4) Rules state "quiet time" after 10 pm, but lots of teenagers in pool raising hell past midnight , no security in sight?
5) Interior was decent but nothing great, great view but needs updating.
6) Sliding door was worn out and hard to open and close, no lock at all. We had to jam a broom handle in it the lock it?
7) Unit was not clean, lots of dust, floors dirty, linens did not feel or smell clean.
8) Blankets were in shreds, holes, I would not give them to goodwill .....had to ask for replacements.
9) Icemaker not working correctly.
10) Absolutely over priced and would not book there again!

Very Nice Condo ~ Clean, beautiful inside with a wonderful ocean front view.
We really enjoyed our stay in 302. Very pretty condo and just like we prefer. Close to the ocean, pool down from balcony so the wind from the ocean comes to the pool. Condo was perfect! Met all our standards ~ Clean, nicely decorated, loved having washer & dryer, etc. Would stay again!
Hi Angie. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at Sea Oats 302. We’re so happy that this unit met all your standards. Close to the ocean and pool are a plus. We hope you got to enjoy some of the activities with the Fun Pass during your stay. We value your referrals and hope you will come back to see us! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
Great condo and location. Only issue was the renovation on the outside of the bldg. and the condo next door was being renovated also. Mon.-Thurs were very noisy. My grandson had a difficult time napping.
We're so happy for your feedback! We're very sorry about the noise from renovation, that was out of our control, but we hope you will come back soon. Thank you for booking with RealJoy!
