We stayed in 215 via vrbo. Very nice beach decor and nice accommodations. Awesome pool especially for kids and never to crowded. Beach access is easy to get to and great location in Miramar and close to everything. Chair service on beach is great they work so hard.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled with family

We stayed in room 204 and it was beautiful and very clean. The kids loved having their own bunk room. This unit has a tv in each room with its own DVD player. The kitchen was fully stocked with all your kitchen needs. The couch was uncomfortable though as you can feel the metal bar from the pull out couch, might be time to replace. The only other complaint was the master bed, the mattress was very firm as were the pillows. I woke up with a stiff neck each morning. The pool can't be beat though, the zero entry for the kids is nice. The pool furniture was the same as our last visit two years ago and it definitely needs replacing, too many torn chairs. As mentioned in other reviews it is a bit of a walk to the beach entrance. Not a big deal for adults but might be for the little ones after a long day at the beach. Overall we had a great time and look forward to staying again.

I just returned from a stay at The Beach Resort - April 5th-12th in unit 206. I traveled with my 4 children - ages 14, 12, 10 and 8. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the resort. The pool area was very clean and the kids loved it, as well as the hot tub. The only downsides to the pool, was that the pergola at one end of the pool created a rather large shaded area - not good if you wanted sun. Also, there needed to be a few more loungers set out. But overall, we enjoyed the pool area. The room was excellent for the price. While not super fancy, it was spacious and very clean. The deck was nice and had a good view of the pool area. There were only 2 issues I had with the unit - both tied to the master bedroom. The mattress was not that good and slumped to the right. The other issue was that there was a smell of cat urine in the closet. It was not overly strong, but when the closet was open was noticeable. The resort has a beach area that is across the street and just a short walk. They have loungers with umbrellas that are free for guests. The beach area is absolutely fantastic. The only beaches I have been to that are comparable are Siesta Key. The resort is also in a very convenient area to shopping and restaurants. Just a short distance away are Pompano Joe's, The Crap Trap and Dave's Fish House. I would highly recommend all. For the price, this is an outstanding option, and I would not hesitate to return.

Spring Break was our first family trip to Destin, Fl and it lived up to expectations. We are a family of five with two teenagers and a 9 yr old. The condo at Beach Resort (#206) was more than adequate with a spacious kitchen/living area facing the pool. Our girls stayed in the bunks while our son slept on the fold out sofa. The master bedroom was roomy although the bed could have been more comfortable. Noise wasn't an issue with those staying around us even though most of the units seemed to be rented. We did have a few minor issues with a leak in the master bath and the kids toilet leaking a bit but it didn't diminish our enjoyment of the week. The beach is right across the street which makes for easy access. The condo is just minutes away from many shopping and dining options. Everything from Bass Pro to Outlets to Outback and local spots like Dave's on the Beach. We will return to Destin in the near future.

Room Tip: On our next trip to Destin, we will attempt to rent end units which face the ocean (#216, $316, #416...

Our son had a destination wedding at Henderson State Park. So we figured we would make a mini vacation out of it. We could not have picked a better place! It was directly across the street from the beach, great location to eating out and shopping!

The unit was updated in decor, had some visible wear in some areas(nothing major). The kitchen had everything you would need to cook but we didn't, only coffee and reheating leftovers.

The place was very pet friendly!

We have already looked at schedules for our return trip.

All the check in and out info was emailed, which made everything so easy since we were getting ready for the wedding.

Thank you Beach Retreat for a great mini vacation!

Wow!

We stayed in unit 304 earlier this year. After that visit we thought it could be our new home at the beach. Now it is our new home at the beach. We love it here. It was near perfect before but now the owners have done some upgrades. There is some new patio furniture, new lighting and window treatments. Everything still seems brand new and perfectly maintained. There is just so much attention to detail!

This time we had garage parking as well as an umbrella and chairs set up for us everyday at the beach.

If you have any question please private message me and I will try to help.

Room Tip: We only stay in unit 304

I took our two boys, ages 8 & 9 in October 2013. We stayed in Unit 203, which we rented through Ocean Reef Resorts website. Check-in and check-out were done via telephone and the unit had a keypad for entry rather than a key to keep up with. Incredibly EASY and no stress! The unit was tropical and tastefully decorated and clean. Underground parking is included with this unit, which was fabulous - no hot car! The pool gates are locked, so only owners and guests can gain access and the pool is beautiful with a zero entry and fountain for children. There is a decent walk to the beach access, but it is along a wide sidewalk and drivers are very courteous to stop when you need to cross over. Chair and umbrella rental is included with this unit, which makes up for the walk. All in all, we didn't mind walking. There are also at least 3 restaurants in walking distance and unlimited options within a 5-10 mile radius. We would definitely stay here again and have no qualms about recommending this unit to others. Great activities for the kids while you are here: the Gulfarium dolphin and sea lion show, The Track and Fudpucker's Alligator Beach, where you can feed and have your picture made with an alligator.
