“Destin not the same”
Reviewed 30 August 2005

Just returned from Destin on 8/27 after a weeks stay at the Fairfield at Majestic Sun.
If you have never been to Destin before, you will not notice much difference, however, if you have been there you will see that ALOT of the beach is gone and there is much debris on the beach that is left. There was a 15-20 foot steep drop off from 98 down to the beach and no walkway or stairs for easier access. Also, the lake behind the Majestic Sun had a very bad odor. Any breeze or wind out of the west would push the smell directly on the Fairfield.
Enough of the bad things the Fairfield cant do much about. The unit was beautiful and had a great view of the Gulf. The staff was always friendly and there was many activities you could participate in on a daily basis.
Destin is definietly a community that hasnt grown well. The exploding development has left the place without its small fishing villiage feel. I really miss that about Destin. Also, if the city doesnt do something about beach erosion, I can definetly see a large drop off in tourism. If the city doesnt take better care of their beach, all the high-rises going up will not come close to being full.
In all, I would give the Fairfield and above average to excellent and the city of Destin itself, including their beaches an OK, but definetly some problems.

Got a steal at only $950 for the week in August at this place. This place is right on the beach, although you have to cross the street. This building is on the side, and you have a side ocean view, and the walk is a little farther than if you stayed in the other unit directly facing the ocean. The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in was plenty big enough and had a large seating area and balcony, although the balconies offer no privacy. Based on this price, which we got off the internet, the deal we got was really good, but I have stayed at much nicer places in Destin. Probably staying further down to the east is a better location to restaurants, nightlife, etc., but this place is still on the beach in Destin and a good value. I did not use the pool, but it looked fairly small. There is a golf course behind the hotel, although I did not play it. There wasn't much room on the beach, and it was fairly crowded, because it was narrow, but all in all it was a nice place to stay.

This resort is fairly small and it has plenty of parking with convenience to the beach. An exercise room is in the first floor and the condos are well above average. You do not have a straight ahead view to the beach, but a side view which is good.
