Amazing summer vacation
My family and I really enjoyed this property. It was close to many attractions, clean, and perfect for our stay. Thank you so much!!
This was our first family vacation to Destin and it was a huge success. We plan on vacationing here every year. Our condo was perfect for our family and was equipped with everything we needed. I loved having a washer and dryer - didn't have to dread the laundry pile when we got home. Great place to stay and a great vacation.
Hi Kim, Thank you for letting us know about your great stay at Palms 2908. We are so glad the condo was perfect for your family and that you got to utilize the washer and dryer! We appreciate your feedback and thank you for staying with Real Joy.
Nice place, excellent pool.
Overall the stay was excellent. The room was nice. However, several stains on the carpet detract from the cleanliness and appearance. Multiple light bulbs were missing and 2 went out with no replacements on site. Instead I had to borrow some from the bathroom until they brought us more the next day. The ice machine in the refrigerator didn’t make ice.
You shouldn’t advertise a free shuttle to the beach, because it is non-existent. Fortunately the state park beach is 5 minutes away from the Palms and is beautiful.
The biggest negative I give is the check in and check out procedures. They were a major pain in the rump. The front desk was not helpful at all, and they are not even there to help throughout most of the day. Their hours are supposed to be 8-4 and it’s rare to see them behind the desk at these times.
There is no gate code for the parking garage and hasn’t been for almost a year. It requires a scan card to enter, but a code was emailed to us anyways as the only way to get in. The parking permit that is emailed is also null and void according to the Palms security attendant that helped us. He got us the correct parking permit.
After we learned how things worked, it was a much more pleasant experience. I realize it’s difficult with so many different owners in this building. I just think there is a huge lack of communication between the Palms and all of it VRBO owners.
Hi William, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We’re pleased to hear your overall stay was excellent and you found the pool excellent as well. We would like to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced here. These issues should have never occurred. We did some checking and found that we replaced the bulbs the same day you called. We couldn’t find where you had contacted us regarding the other issues giving us an opportunity to correct them during your stay. Real Joy does not manage the front desk at the Palms. The Palms also controls the shuttle and shuttle times and beach information as well. We are sorry that you had this experience. Again, thank you for your feedback.
First Time in Destin
We had a great stay- location was great and the condo was comfortable and had almost everything we needed. Salt/pepper and coffee filters not provided were my only complaint. We would definitely stay again!
Hi Chad, thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely condo. We’re pleased to hear you had a great stay and enjoyed the location and found the unit comfortable. We value your referrals and hope you will come back to visit! Thank you again for your feedback and thank you for booking with Real Joy!
Super fun family Vacay!
With 4 small ones 7 & under, we decided a really cool pool may be more up our alley than spending days at "the beach". What a great decision! They LOVED the pool!! Kids couldn't get enough splash time. Location was great, too. Close to many local hotspots, and grocery stores and literally right across the street from some great beach access. The layout of this suite was perfect for our family of 6. VERY functional, and had all the supplies we needed for meals-in. Trundle bed was the highlight for the kids, and we loved the balcony. Everyone agreed that our stay was too short, and we would totally come again!!! PS: The Pancakery was AWESOME!
Hi Dottie. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely condo. We’re happy to hear your kids got to enjoy the pool and that you had everything you needed during your stay. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed The Pancakery! Thank you for your feedback. We hope you will come back to visit! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
Wonderful condo with all of the amenities!
We loved having multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and use of a full kitchen! We had plenty of towels to use and were able to wash laundry as we went along. The dryer isn't the best and needs a few cycles to get clothes dry, but no big deal. The view was very nice and the pool was amazing! We had no issues with noise and the place was very clean and convenient to everything. If you want beach access, I would recommend paying the $6 to park at Henderson Beach State Park, which is very close by. It's a much more beautiful and peaceful experience than the public assess that The Palms recommends. When you book a condo, don't expect housekeeping and you may need to provide your own detergent, etc. This did not bother us a bit. We prefer to take care of things ourselves. But if you're looking for a maid, stay at a hotel.
Hi Jessica. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely condo. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the amenities and the pool and the location. We will make sure to communicate with Ops about the dryer. Thank you for your feedback. We hope you will come back to visit! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
