“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

We stayed here in May of 2010 I believe. (which isn't an option on the list) It is right on the beach. The views were amazing and the room was perfect. It was one of the best vacations I've ever had. We saw stingrays, dolphins, and a manatee! The price was great as well.

Room Tip: Get one facing the ocean. It's worth the extra money.

The beach, pool, property and staff were all very nice. The room however was dated, dirty, and the furniture is in terrible condition.

One of the best locaitons in Destin. The beach had recently been restored around the complex and my family had a great time playing in the sand.

Unfortunately, the room put a damper on the whole trip. The furniture was dirty and had holes/tears. Not even a good cleaning could save the furniture it must be replaced. The bedding and entire decor was extremely dated. The A/C was horrible. Electrical wiring was exposed and an outlet didn't have a cover plate....water damage around windows, the window shutters were broken, rusting medicine cabinet in the bathrooms. The outlets are so old, they no longer hold plugs properly, the lamp plugs kept falling out of the outlets with slightest bump and we had to place our phone chargers "just right" to keep them in the outlets. Items seemed to be missing from the kitchen and no top for the blender. I could go on, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

I have been in several other units at Jetty East and most of them are very nice, but do yourself a big favor and avoid 403B!

Room Tip: Do not stay in 403B

We've been going to Destin for about 17 yrs, at least 13 of those yrs., we've stayed at "the Jetty" as we call it.... Folks have always been friendly, treats us like family, accomodations are perfect for us, we've stayed in many, many different units, gulf-view, jetty-view, 1, 2 bedrooms, depending on who was w/us, if we were keeping a more "economical" trip that time, or whatever.... doesn't matter, every visit has been so enjoyable & relaxing. We especially luv it because it's the closest condo to the east pass jetties, which is great for fishing & at the south end of the jetties, really good snorkeling & even better diving! Something for everyone! We'd never consider staying anywhere else.... the Jetty is our home away from home.... :)

We have stayed at the Jetty many times and its always been nice. The staff is so friendly. They make you feel right at home. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Pool is great. We always stay on the Jetty side which makes the room a little cheaper but even if you stay on the Gulf side I still think the price is good.

If great beaches and yummy seafood is up your alley, then head to the beaches of NW Florida. Holiday Isle is the premium perch for vacationers...families and couples are most at home here vs. singles. We stayed in unit 509B, a 2BR/2BA with excellent views of the eastern sunrise daily. The balcony has high furniture that easily serves a group of 4 for breakfast, lunch or cocktails. Enjoy swimming in the very large & crystal clean pool. Build sandcastles at the surf's edge and nestle under the beach umbrella on comfy beach chairs rented from Steve's beach service. We received a 20% discount special as a walk-in booking which took our 5 nights to ~$1000 with all taxes and service fees. Full kitchen well equipped for all meals and BBQ cooking under the Gazebo at the beach. Unit has all linens and great staff is quick to repair even the slightest annoyance of temp in freezer or a door coming off a slide railing. Ask for Pam at the front desk/reservations. She is helpful with selecting a unit that is well suited for your group. Daily beach walks to the Jetty for sunsets is a real treat. Watching the fishing boats come out and return to the Harbor is a favorite pastime, too. Nearby eating is great in Destin - Dewey Destin; Marina Cafe, Back Porch, and Crab Trap were all on our list this visit. All terrific and all have in door & outdoor seating with views of the beach or harbor.

Room Tip: Choose the gulf view if you like to see your kids at the pool or at the beach. Sunrise is the view f...

We stayed in 607b and loved it! The pictures on the website looked good, but when we got there , they had updated even more! We were very unsure about the enclosed balcony; however, it turned out to be amazing (probably our favorite part).They have this new beautiful white tall table and comfortable armed chairs. We ate all of our meals there and just enjoyed sitting and looking at the beach and pool. Breathtaking views!! We did not want to leave! The master bed was sooo comfortable. This will be our new go to unit 2 times every year!! Happy guests.

We had to change our anticipated arrival dates 2 times because this unit wass rented...clear to see why.,

Room Tip: Get this top floor unit if at all possible. Beautiful sunrises!!
