Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 465 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIG SURPRISE! When we made this reservation, we had no idea that this hotel was comparable to a very popular resort in Destin owned by a competitor. In fact, this hotel is BETTER because you're not "nickled and dimed" your entire visit. Parking is free and other amenities are. When we arrived, Matisha greeted us warmly, professionally and made me truly feel welcome. She obviously loves her job. The room was OUTSTANDING!! For this price, I was amazed!! The pool area is second to none! Other resorts might have larger areas, but this was EXCELLENT. I love the music you play and you truly provide an area of relaxation. The Lazy River is AWESOME!! The beach area is great. It wasn't overly crowded and it is very well kept. We didn't rent a chair and umbrella as they were quite pricey. We thought that would be included in our stay but it isn't. The food that you can order from the pool area is DELICIOUS!! The beer was cold and the drinks were fantastic. The staff was SUPER friendly, but obviously short staffed around the grill/bar. I had to wait a long time for a sandwich but it wasn't the staff's fault. They were super nice. Letty served our breakfast on Saturday morning and was very kind and pleasant. When staff members have such a positive attitude, it adds to a pleasant experience. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Stay there again? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT!! Recommend it to others? WITHOUT ANY HESITATION!! I already have told MANY friends how wonderful it is. THANK YOU!! August 31, 2015
