Just got back from Seascape in Destin, FL. It was good to get away and see the ocean, which I have never done before. I read plenty of reviews on Seascape before I went and found that everything negative said about Seascape was true. I used Book It to book the condo, a 1 bedroom, 1 bath. Before we left for our trip I tried to upgrade our condo to a two bedroom condo and found that Seascape would not allow me to do that without paying a $100.00 cancelation fee for the 1 bedroom. I've never experienced that kind of service before. If I wanted to spend more money, normally I've able to upgrade without any cancelation fee.
I did like the location, there was plenty to do in the area and the beach is beautiful. The condo was clean, but the we wanted a king size bed and only got a full size bed, the sofa bed was broken and wouldn't pull out, the washer and dryer was old and made a LOT of noise. Sitting in the living room with the washer and dryer going was so loud it was hard to talk to each other. There was very few supplies in the condo, no dish washing soap, dish washer soap, paper towels, there was only 1 bowl to eat cereal with. We didn't do any cooking while there except for using the microwave so I couldn't say anything about that. Oh, and if you want internet, forget it. There was no wifi at the condo and I wasn't going to pay more for internet, I didn't even ask if there was the option to pay for it, because I had already paid enough. I also have a iPhone with internet service, but could not get internet service with that either. I had good phone service, but the internet would not work, I don't know why.
If you want to play golf while in Destin, don't play at Seascape. It's the worst golf course there. It is a pasture with holes. We played at Kelly Plantation and it was wonderful. The apple they give you on the 10th tee were great!
Now for Book it. NEVER USE BOOK IT! Book It is the worst deal on the web. You will pay for your condo/room with them and then when you get to Seascape you will have to pay more. We stayed at Seascape for 4 nights and I had to pay an extra $222.00 when I got there. You have to pay $28.00 dollars per day for an amenity fee and almost a $100.00 cleaning fee. Also, if you request certain things for your condo like a king size bed you can bet on not getting it. If you book with Book It your request is not guaranteed. Book It is a rip off! We will NEVER use this site again. Apparently Seascape doesn't like Book It either, they will not work with you in the slightest bit if you use them to book your stay.
If you didn't understand what I said above about Book It I'll say it again. NEVER USE BOOK IT, NEVER USE BOOK IT, NEVER USE BOOK IT!!!!!!
