I didn't really have high expectations for this resort, but it was actually a lot better than expected. Really pretty beach area, great pool, outdoor bar, and good sports bar (went during NCAA tourney). Also, very close to Baytown area, you can either ride a bike or take a shuttle. Overall I would definitely recommend this place and would not think twice about returning.

We just returned from a sporadic vacation without having made reservations (something we have not done in years). We stopped at a dozen places beginning at Gulf Shores going east on Hwy 98 looking for a beach front room for 3 nights (Thurs thru Sun) withouth paying an arm and a leg. We found this place ... and it was our oasis in the desert. They honored the reasonable rate I found on Expedia (all other hotels averaged $100 more each night for beach front). All of the staff was extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. The decor was very tasteful and the room was extremely clean!! The beds and pillows were super comfy. They also provide ammenities that other hotels just do not offer for FREE..... Free umbrella and 2 chairs on the beach; free bike rental; free paddle board lessons; free movie rental. They have 2 heated pools that are very well maintained, as well as, a hot tub. There was no free breakfast.... but the other ammenities far out-weighed that. We just grabbed a dozen doughnuts at a local grocery store.... and there is a Waffle House just a mile away. The on-site tiki bar has great cheeseburgers and fries too. The only suggestion I have is that the pool/hot tub needs to be open later than 9 pm.... especially for the weekend. If you are looking for class, style and southern hospitability at a reasonable price, this is your place. If we are in Ft. Walton again, we will def stay here!

We love sporadic vacations as they welcome great surprises and ungorgettable moments. We are glad to have been your "oasis in the desert".
