Why Compass Resorts chose Destin

We loved this place! Our family rented here for a few years and had the wonderful opportunity to purchase at Destin West! We looked at other resorts, but Destin West had such a relaxing, laid back vibe for anyone of any age! Both properties have many amenities and we never want to leave.

What makes this condo unique

THE LAZY RIVER!! Easy Beach to bay access with walkway over highway. State of the art fitness center. Love grilling on the beach outside. Access to Ramada water playground, grotto pool, and breakfast on the go. Walking distance to restaurants, night clubs, shopping. Catering and in-room massage available. Very close to military museums and 8 miles from Destin entertainment and shopping. If you like boating, you have to go to Crab Island! Fun for the whole family!

We have stayed at Silver Shells many times over the last 15 years and this year was a little disappointing. The beach services had gone up in price, some of our key fobs didn't work, (even after having them reset) and the beach area was over taken by people from the public beach next door. We love Destin and Silver Shells, so we hope these items will be corrected for our trip next year.
