“Nice but Small”
Reviewed 13 March 2010

We stayed for the long Valentine's Day weekend. It snowed!!! But the indoor pool, hot tub and activities were nice when it was too cold to go out. The room was VERY Small for a family of 4. We had to rearrange the furniture to let the couch-bed out at night. It does come with all the dishes, pots, pans, silverware, towels, dish soap, etc. We never got clean towels or maid service, but we just figured they didn't come until you checked out. The beach access was quite a walk, wouldn't do it with younger kids!! They are putting a pool outside, I think, which will be nice because who wants to swim indoors when it's beautiful outside. The movie selection/movie room is cool. We'd stay again but not in the summer- it's too much trouble to lug all your stuff to the beach.

We travelled with our grandson who is 6. The Staff are so friendly in fact they are unbelievably helpful. It is so cool because in February it certainly isn't the warmest and all the facilities are indoors. We would go again even if we did not have our grandson with us.

We arrived back at Club Destin Resort for another week of fun in the sun. We were struck at how many improvements have been made, how nice everything looked. The entire week was another terrific experience. This is the best, smartest concept for vacationing in Florida we've seen...with the recreation and pool areas under cover, it doesn't matter what the weather, good or bad we can still enjoy the amenities. Whether we need to be out of the sun or if starts to rain, the fun continues at Club Destin.

the Staff is as professional and accommdating as any major resort we've visited. Our questions were answered, any concerns we had were immediate addressed, and they gave us excellent suggestions for activities and dining.

the rooms are spacious and clean, very clean and quiet. Access to the beach is a short walk away. The desk staff also suggested we take a 2 minute drive up the street to the local state park for beach access and once we did that, it was our daily routine. the beach at the park is pristine, facilities for shelter, rest rooms, parking are right there and the walks you can take go for miles along the beach. You will also see incredible wildlife, dolphins, turtles, birds of all kinds, fish and water that is clear as glass. FABULOUS way to spend the day.

Service is prevalent and you will be delighted at how well you are cared for at Club Destin, the amenities are in like new condition and the entire experience is superb...not only were expectations met at every level, at most levels our expectations were exceeded.

Enjoy your visit to Club Destin Resort

Had a great 2nd visit to the Club Destin Resort. A lot of new improvements since my visit last year. I really enjoyed the indoor pool as it rained quite a view of my days there. The staff was extremely friendly, and my room and the pool area were kept very clean. I think it is a great hotel for a single traveler or family. The beach is right across the street and you are within driving distance to some really nice restaurants or within walking distance to some fast food restaurants. Looking forward to another great trip next year. Any questions, feel free to contace me at KWeeks1998@aol.com.

We loved it, They have somuch to do for children, Coloring, Arts and Crafts, A Magic Show, Put Put, Shuffle Board, Video Game Room and even a MOVIE THEATER in the building. The beach is a short walk across the main road, but there is a stop light with a cross walk right in front of the hotel. The front desk staff was absolutely wonderful. This was a great place to stay, AND IT WAS HALF THE COST OF A BEACH FRONT HOTEL.

If you are looking for a hotel with easy access to the beach this is definitely not it. It says gated access. Yeah right. You have to cross a very busy 4-6 lane higway that is extremely busy. not to mention the long walk after finally getting across. This was extremely difficult for me my wife and two small children to the point of dangerous. The gated accesss is between two luxury high rises How tacky is that. not to mention the tiny space about 10 feet you have on the beach between these two properties which will let you know you can be arrested for trespassing. The room was clean which is about the only thing i can say . It said it sleeps up to six but was very small. The woman who checked me in was nice but after that the rest of the staff was not friendly to rude. I asked for just another sample packet of coffee for my room until I could get to the supermarket and the girl said we only provide one sorry. The location to the busy destin strip with water park, restaurants, shopping , etc. is good However, I know there are much better places to stay. You would be better off to pay the $5.00 access fee to the beach through one of the beach parks.

Stayed at this hotel(definately not a resort) for two days, was going to stay a 3rd but decided against it. I agree with some of the other coments concerning beach access, 800 ft? more like 800 yards to the beach, and yes a very dangerous crossing. Bathroom was very small, one of the smallest Iv'e ever been in. & rooms no curtains to keep the bright light out, only blinds, which didn't do the trick. A place to lay our heads, thats the best I can say. But what I will remember most is the un-friendleness of the staff, especially at check out. The manager checked me out with not a how was your stay, come back or a thank you come again, an almost arrogant attitude (what a jerk)!!!
