Great Family Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. It is small, but well appointed, and the bunk beds were great for our kids. The balcony has a wonderful view of the beach, the large pool, and the grotto pool and waterfall at the Ramada next door. You can walk to the beach, to the Boardwalk Restaurants, walk to the fishing pier, and even the Gulfarium. We were able to use the splash pad at the Ramada. There is a Publix 5 minutes away for groceries. Very nice parking garage, though the floors of the parking garage are staggered from the condo floors, which makes it tricky with lots of luggage and you end up having to go to the ground floor and switch elevators. You can walk over to the Bayside condos and the lazy river and zero entry pool are great. Bring your own dish soap, and possibly some extra garbage bags (we only had 2) if you have kids! We really enjoyed our stay and will likely be back!

Not worth the price!

  • 2 of 5

Overall, condo is dated and a little worn down. Tile grout and floor is dirty, and I expect better for what we paid. Make sure to bring everything you'll need, including toilet paper! Wifi did not work, and the property manager was worthless. Gulf pool is super crowded due to large number of Ramada guests coming over from next door. People were actually eating in the pool and there is no monitoring of the pool. Overall, it's a decent property with pretty views, but not for the money.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thank you for taking the time to talk with me concerning your review of Destin West Gulf Side Resort. We care very much about the quality of your vacation and certainly will work to improve on each comment you made. The tile-grout is cleaned professionally every year, we also have inspectors after each clean.When you make your reservation with us, we send a Welcome Package, which includes all our contact information, office phone, after hours, cell numbers, and we specifically request that you reach out to us with any concerns you may have. The living room furniture is nearly new - less than 6 months, however, the ottoman was not. This has been replaced. The items you listed - that were not enough, you may recall our Welcome Package, which includes a list of what we provide on your arrival. The Wifi has been greatly improved though out the Resort. The management company you referenced - as we discussed, was not us - we did talk with the on-site office pertaining to the guest from the Ramada and we were told they do not have privileges at the Resort. There is on-site monitoring, 24 hours a day, and very strict rules for all the pools. This is a very large resort and offers a 700' Lazy River, 7 Pools, Outdoor Hot-tubs, Huge Fitness Center, Marina on the Bay and much more. July is peak season and super busy. Thank you again for taking the time to talk to me and clarifying some of these issues, we can only encourage our guest to call us. We take your investment in your vacation serous and want it to be wonderful and a memorable experience and always glad to help.

Less than average....

  • 3 of 5

Would not recommend for price.....

-The smell greets you at the door each and everytime you entered. Our attempts to "help" the smell went un-noticed.....

-The AC, we turned it to 72 upon arrival. It froze up. Pretty much stayed that way. We were hot in the room at times during the day...night time was terrible..

-The pillows, needless to say, we went the night we arrived and purchased as the ones they provided were flat, might as well not have been any on the bed...

I was given late check out though....

Other than the above, the stay was okay..

Owner's Response: Hi Gina, Thank you for your recent review on your visit to Destin West Gulf Side Resort. After your departure, we discovered the A/C was not working – It is unfortunate that you did not call us on your arrival – We are available 24 hours a day and we would have resolved the A/C on the day of your arrival. This A/C was a brand-new system, installed 3 months ago. Our Welcome Package, provides you with our office numbers, after hours number, e-mail address and cell numbers, requesting that you contact us with any concerns or questions you may have. With the A/C not working, it most likely contributed to the poor ventilation in the property. There have not been any subsequent problems since the HVAC was resolved. On your pillow situation, we would have been very pleased to bring you fluffier pillows...... So sorry you did not reach out to us. Pricing was different, as you may recall, we worked with you to accommodate your two (2) weekend request. We regret your visit was not more enjoyable for you and your guest and would encourage you to reach out to someone on your next vacation. Our goal is to support you in any way we can to ensure you have a great time on your vacation. It is important to us and we really do care about the quality of your trip.

The property was the perfect size and set-up for my family of 5. Loved all of the amenities!

  • 4 of 5

The property was the perfect size for my family of 5 for our long weekend. We enjoyed having the beach view, pool/spa downstairs from our room, as well as easy access to the beach and absolutely loved the lazy river and pool across the bridge. We all had a great time and will be back!

Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with the beach and restaurants just steps away. We stayed in #407, Very nice with a great view. The only complaint we have is the bed was very uncomfortable.
