Very relaxing. Lazy river was amazing and food was right around the corner. Condo was beautiful, nice, clean and cozy. Kids loved the bunk beds and of course the pool and lazy river. Beach was about a 7 minute walk away. The first condo I've been the last few years that has a full, decked out exercise facility which I was really happy with. Definitely would go again.

Beautiful condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well maintained, clean, and comfortable - just as described. The check in/out process was a breeze. Barry was very easy to work with, and quick to answer any questions I might have. The view of the bay was beautiful and in the mornings it was so quiet. I love all the new tile work. I can see how this is a dream location for anyone with children. There is so much to do and explore. Every night after dinner we visited the lazy river and hot tub before turning in for the night. I don't think we would have utilized this portion of the resort as much if we hadn't stayed on this side. The first full day we were there it rained all day, but again the trip to the lazy river is very quick. We spent most the day floating around the lazy river and relaxing in the hot tub. Barely noticed the constant drizzle.

I paid for beach service for the week, which I recommend, the actual walk to the beach takes about 5 minutes and is a lot easier if you're not hauling chairs and umbrellas. We saw dolphins every day, once they were so close it felt like we could touch them. Lifeguards made everyone move away from them. Also while on the beach we walked down to Rockin' Tacos for a taco and margarita. The lunch view was perfect. We also walked next door to Fudpucker's one night and enjoyed the fare there as well. The ride to Destin was only a few minutes and opens up even more restaurant possibilities.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable, bonus that it was also well decorated. The view was awesome and the pool with the lazy river is great for kids and adults (who still act like kids).

The location is great if you plan to keep your activities on the beach. You can rent watercraft next door and there are a few restaurants within walking distance. The drive into Destin isn't bad, but we found we had to make it several times a day to do what we wanted to do.

Also, there needs to be more towels in the unit. Between diving, time on top of the water and the pool, we showered more than once a day. This meant doing laundry daily. Not what I want to do on vacation.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend this property.

Amazing experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier! Working with Sherry and Barry was probably one of the best examples of outstanding customer service. Being a business owner I know how hard it can be to please the masses. They were beyond patient and their response time was stellar! We have many families in our area(Morton, Illinois) and I would recommend this to all of them.

The condo was beautiful! My kids thought we were at the Ritz!:) me too!:)

The condo is on the end of the hall so there were only neighbors on one side. We NEVER heard them ONE TIME.! Usually we take noise makers to drown out the stompers above and doors slamming. We honestly didn't even have to use them. We had a private balcony off the master suite and then another one on the bay side overlooking to pools. Yes... I said pools!:) the had a central one surrounded by a lazy river, 2 hot tubs and another wade into pool for the little ones. Then in the lazy river I noticed two more pools across the way. At night they turn on colored lights which was fun too!! They were ALL kept so clean in all these common areas too!! The condo was SUPER clean and many new updates. You can easily have 6 people and still have areas to go for privacy if you needed it. It is very spacious! I can not think of one complaint any of had from the moment we got there till the time we left. Fudpuckers is right next door and the sea aquarium is across the street with some shopping and eating places. We liked this cause on the other side of the boardwalk it was crazy with traffic. This was nice not to have to hassle with that! We will be back and look forward to working with the Slotter's again! Sometimes, unfortunately people don't always stand by the mission statements or their descriptions don't match up when you get there! This family exceeded our expectations and we were so grateful they opened their home for our family to make awesome memories!!!Forever grateful! :)))

Summer family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in 3 different rooms at destin west. Two in the beach side and now this unit on the bay side. This room is by far the nicest. From the floors to the tile work in the bathroom it is too of the line. Love being in the center of the complex on the bay side, the view is spectacular from there. All the 3 flatscreen tv's are top of the line. Loved our stay in this condo!!!!
