We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was very nice and spacious. It a nice that there were two master suites, since we came with another couple. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the condo as well. Beautiful views of the pool and ocean from the balcony and both rooms, but it did overlook the busy highway that was between the hotel and beach.
My only complaint for the condo was the long walk from the parking garage to the unit. The parking garage is on the opposite side of the property, so you have to park, walk to the main lobby, through the lobby, down an outdoor corridor, through a another long hallway to the elevator. I really disliked part of our stay.
Overall stay was wonderful. Had one issue though. I reserved the condo through Real Joy vacations and was told that I would receive the codes to get in through an email on the day of arrival. There still was no email when we arrived. When I checked in the Palms gave us room keys and I thought ok no problem, but when we got to the room, the door lock was punch key activated, the usual room keys (like in a hotel)will not work. So I had to walk all the way back down to the front desk and talk to someone. Luckily the manager knew someone who worked for Real Joy and was able to get a hold of them to get the code. Other than that the condo was great. I do recommend that if you reserve this room, that you make sure you have the room key code before you arrive as a regular card key will not work. I would stay again.
The location of this condo could not have been more perfect for me, it was really close to beach, stores, where I got a massage, shops and wonderful restaurants! Unfortunately I do have a few complaints when I booked here I was under the impression that brick and spoon restaurant was in the condo when I checked and it was no longer there which was not a huge deal but wish I would have known before so I could have brought coffee & breakfast stuff. The 2nd thing is that I read that there was a shuttle that went to Henderson Beach State Park when I got there I found out that it did not go to Henderson Beach State Park. Other than those two things everything was great! Very quiet and peaceful weekend!
We stayed in this condo for 3 nights. Our party consisted of my husband and I, our 4 month old, and my sister. The bedrooms and closets were spacious. The master bath was huge - LOVED the shower. The kitchen had everything we needed, except the food. We didn't eat out once! The living area was great and was perfect for us.
The balcony was large enough for us all to sit out there comfortably. You can see the Gulf, but you will mostly see and hear the pool area and the highway between the resort and the beach. But this is probably one of the best views you'll get of the Gulf from this resort.
The resort itself is wonderful. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We LOVED the pool - it's basically why we chose this resort. The pool area was huge and had lots of shaded areas (including in the pool itself), but plenty of areas to get a tan. We ended up driving to the beach. We parked outside The Back Porch restaurant and rented our chairs & umbrellas from them (note that they don't accept reservations until 9am, so call the day ahead if you want to go out early).
We had plenty of towels, linens, etc for our stay provided. They also provided a small bottle of dish soap, 4-5 dishwasher detergent pods, and enough trash bags to last us for our stay in the bathrooms. (I would bring a couple of extra kitchen trash bags).
At one point we thought our coffee maker was broken. I reported it on the app, and they brought us a new one within a couple of hours. AWESOME service from RealJoy.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend this condo!
This room and resort was one of the best places I've ever stayed. The room was huge and had everything we needed, perfect for two couples. The pool was awesome and had drink service or food service nearby (we did not travel with kids but it is a great place for kids as well). The restaurant/bar was great, happy hour had great deals on food. The beach was within walking distance but they do have a shuttle to take you. The shuttle service was by far the biggest money saver. They have service to the harbor walk the beach and destin commons. Saved us $12 a cab ride one way. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
