We stayed here 4-30, 5-01 and 5-02 and also at 2 other properties in the destin area during this vacation. Only wish all 10 nights had been here. Our room was in second building just steps from the main building which houses the lobby, restaurant and deck area. We were 3rd floor, 309 I think. We entered the room greeted by soft music, a tray with 2 glasses and a bottle of wine on the bed. French door flanked by windows looked straight out to white sand and surf. Small balcony with 2 chairs. Have never had a room this close the the water. Substantial furniture with 2 comfy chairs. Room decorated in pale blues and golds. We have stayed in many hotels and condos and have never had a bed so comfortable. I even asked the desk person if they knew what the matress brand was. Never found out, sigh... Large jetted tub in bath. Sink cabinet was old painted wood but it fits with the vibe of this place. At least there were drawers and cabinets for storage in the bath which you seldom see. Free breakfast, cooked to order, fruit, etc. Small dining room or eat out on the deck which is very large with many tables, swings and a tiki bar where late afternoon drinks are served, also complimentary. Beer, wine and pitcher after pitcher of margaritas and daiquiries mixed by a very entertaining young man. Sit around the tiki hut and chat with fellow travelers. Complimentry chairs and umbrella at the beach. The side of the hotel is directly against Henderson State Park. Unobstructed views down the beach which is pristine clean. Gorgeous water. Comlimentry boxed lunch of your choice. Fridge next to dining room stocked with pop and water. We did not eat here for dinner, but you can read reviews for Beach Walk Restaurant which has won many awards. This was a wonderful experience. For those who hesitate due to room rate, consider no fee parking, free breakfast (top 2 while in Destin), free lunch, free happy hour, free pop and water, free umbrella and chairs. These alone added @ $88.00 a day to our rate at the hilton down the road.
