Clean and nice place for 4

  • 3 of 5

Place was good and clean. Would have rated 4, but had to give 3 since it is advertised as sleeps 6 but there is really only 1 queen bed and a bunk bed for 2 kids. There were extra pillows but no comforters or blankets.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on this lovely 1-bedroom plus condo. We are pleased you enjoyed the cleanliness and amenities like the largest lagoon pool in Destin. We wish you had contacted us regarding these issues which would have given us the opportunity to deliver extra blankets or comforters. Also, we would have mentioned the queen size pull out sofa in the living room. Again, thank you for your feedback and staying with RealJoy.

I'm on the fence

  • 3 of 5

This unit is fine and was moderately clean but there are a few things that should be known. The phone doesn't work. Had problems with a tv, cable and wifi. It is really suited for a family of 2 adults and 2-3 kids or 2 adults and 1 maybe 2 teenagers. The sofa bed isn't suitable for anyone other than a child. The blankets for the beds are not being cleaned as the one for my bed had blood on the backside and you could clearly see it. The kitchen is not a completely stocked kitchen. It has no pots, enough silverware for a group of four for no more than one day so you'll definitely be washing every night and bring dish deter. because they only supply you with 2 tabs. There are no tongs, scissors, can opener, pot holders or salt/pepper. May sound nit picky but I found myself needing these things so that's why I'm commenting. No hair dryer in the second bath. There is a policy on not hanging beach towels on balcony railing and there are no towel hooks in bathrooms. Usually places like these have a grill on the balcony and if not a grilling area on the grounds but they have neither. So if you tend to enjoy grilling as we do on our beach trips you won't be able to do that here. We did have problems getting into our room daily. Really EVERY time. We had to get new cards repeatedly. By the time our trip was over we had a fair amount of inactive cards to turn in. We were supposed to have one card for each of four adults and got tired of going down to the desk every couple of hours to get new cards so by day 2 we had one that worked to pass around between all of us. One good thing is the elevators are very quick. The grounds of the resort itself are nice as far as landscaping and decor but not maintained daily. There was trash all over the place. I found myself actually picking some up here and there and throwing it away. The pool area was nice and the pool and hot tub were nice size although it was obvious the recommended chlorine wasn't being used and the pool was really dirty. The bottom was covered with debris. I overheard several other people talking about how dirty the pool is and saw one man pick up something floating in the pool that I noticed but didn't want to touch. It was a muffin. We talked to a couple who owns 2 units and they didn't have very nice things to say about the place. Overall I'm not really sure if these things are the norm or not but I would be willing to give this place another shot and would rather stay in a larger unit.

Uncomfortable Sleeping arrangements, however, resonably priced, so you get what you pay for.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean and for the most part updated. The TV in the bunk room was old and wasn't hooked up to the cable box, so no TV in that room. The phone didn't work (couldn't call front desk, etc). Also, the WIFI Router in the Condo would only allow one device to connect. I called the Property Management company and reported the WIFI Router issue, however, they never came and fixed it like they said they would.

The worst part about the condo, besides the aforementioned issues above, was the Master Suite mattress. That thing was harder than a rock. I am a big guy, so normally don't mind hard mattresses, however, that was way to hard. Almost like sleeping on the box spring.

Other than that, the pools and rest of the resort facilities were nice. Our kid had a good time.

Overall, place was nice and cost was reasonable compared to other places in Destin. I was on a semi-business trip, so was stuck staying there since it was close to the Government authorized Per-Diem rates. I stay at much nicer places when on personal vacation.
