Destin Seafarer
Ranked #13 of 55 Speciality Lodging in Destin
Reviewed 16 February 2014

We've been staying at the Seafarer for the last ten years. We usually go during the shoulder months in the early spring and late fall. Each unit has spectacular views of the gulf. The covered balconies are great for sitting outside. The swimming pooi is heated. The low rise building makes it easy access to the beach. The Seafarer is a couple of doors west from the Back Porch restaurant. The location is convenient to everything.

Reviewed 8 October 2013

The price is fair for this place but be warned the place hasn't been renovated in years. The decor looks like is was done in the 1980s. No flatscreen tvs but cheap old tube tvs. Cheap ceiling fans and broken doors. All that said, we'd stay here again because it is right on the beach. There are better places in the Restaurant Rd area but you'd have to cross the street to get to the beach. This place has stairs directly down onto the beach. They have two gas grills for use and the balconies are very spacious. The bedrooms are kind of small but the living room/dining room areas are nice with an open floor place. There is plenty of shopping in the area, restaurants within walking distance, jet ski, kayak, and paddle board rentals, and you can walk across the street and take a helicopter ride or walk a few blocks down and parasail. Like most places on the gulf, there isn't a great deal of marine life to see (except smaller fish) but the beaches are clean and you can take alcohol onto the beach (just NO GLASS! $50 fine for the first offense!). Parking in the garage is tight but there are two luggage carts to help unload. Overall this is a good place to stay if you want to save some money and plan to spend more time on the beach than in the rooms. I'd recommend it to folks who are looking at a place to stay in Destin for that reason. If you are looking for amenities and high-end luxury...you should look elsewhere.

Room Tip: I can't help much in that area but room 108 isn't impressive. Not sure about the others. 108...
