Review by kristin g.
We had a great time. Can not say enough about the condo, resort and management. Jennifer was very helpful with things to do and even letting us in early. Julie and Robyn were great to work with. The resort was great. We went fishing with Josh and had a great fishing trip. This management company has a lot of everything. I highly recommend DestinWestCondos for your next vacation.

Amazing sunsets frim thr rooftop as well-Will stay here again

Clean and cozy

Review by Delwanda S.
This condo was extremely clean and it has a cozy feeling upon arrival. The appliances are up to date and it looks very modern. Having a washer and dryer was a convenience. My family and I enjoyed our stay. The rooftop access with jacuzzi was a big hit as well. The lazy river was great for the entire family. We will definitely return and request this specific condo.
Manager Response:
Thank you, Delwanda, for your awesome review. We are looking forward to having you back soon.

Amazing condo with beautiful view of lazy river!

Great condo, great resort!

Review by
Stayed over 4th of July week. Could see multiple fireworks shows from the rooftop. Large rooftop area has hot tub and grill that were very nice. Condo is nicely equipped with most things that you need and in good shape. Lots of towels and owners provide lots of beach chairs, umbrellas and various beach toys that you can haul out to the beach in their provided wagons. Not quite as nice as having the beach service (available for $25-30/day) but saves money for other things. Resort is great with the lazy river, nice courtyard, bridge to the beach and access to the grotto at the Ramada next door. Don't have to deal with much Destin traffic. Overall wonderful experience. A couple of minor maintenance issues were called in but were not addressed, not a big deal.

Best family vacation

Top-Notch Experience

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by
I stayed with Destin West for several months during a work related trip. The condo and my experience with the staff was absolutely top-notch. The fully furnished large open layout was extremely comfortable and felt like home. I had guests over and we enjoyed the roof patio and barbecue on several occasions. The lazy river, hot-tubs, and, multiple pools made the evenings fun and relaxing. The locations was perfect too. Close to Destin for daily outings and dining, but just far enough away that it didn't feel like you were in the middle of tourist territory. I can't recommend them enough!!
Manager Response:
Jason, thank you! We hope to see you and your group again soon! You have been a pleasure to work with.

Christmas Stay near Destin

5 out of 5 stars          
Review by Esther M.
Our family rented three units at Destin West; two on the bay side and one on the beach side. By far, the penthouse was the biggest with the most amenities. I was hoping this was an end unit which had the best view of the bay, but we had a decent view of the bay and lazy river. We were able to fit fifteen people very comfortably for our Christmas reunion on Christmas Eve. Everyone had plenty of seating inside and outside. The hot tub was used on the roof at night, and the family loved it. The master bedroom was very spacious, but I'm not a fan of black tile throughout the bathrooms. I did like the floors in the unit. The lighting was excellent in the entire unit. I would definitely recommend this unit for a family of five. Thank you for a great stay.
Manager Response:
Esther, thanks for the great review. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our condo and at the resort. Hopefully you will make this a yearly event. we look forward to having you as our guest again next year.

Review by Andrew O.
The condo was clean and well maintained. The roof access had an amazing view of the Bay and the Ocean. The property was well maintained and the pools offered a lot of entertainment for the family. We had 8 prink bands but only 7 blue bands were supplied when there was supposed to be 8. We made it work, however I sent an email to let the facility know and I didn't hear back anything.
