“Wonderful experience!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We will be visiting this resort every year. We had an horrific experience at the new Holiday Inn Resort upon our arrival. Those room at Holiday Inn Resort are TINY and NOT suited for five people. Only, we could not have known that, since the search engine recommended the room to us. Needless to say, we left and found Wyndham and couldn't have had a better experience. The manager even gave us complimentary snacks, drinks, and coupon for the restaurant, due to our terrible experience with Holiday Inn. Visit this resort; you won't be sorry!!!! This family is sold for life!!!!!!!!!!!! Beautiful views and perfect beach access. Tons to do!!!! Free movies...love this place!

Room Tip: The suites at this hotel offer kitchenette and separate bedroom, pull out sofa, balcony overlooking...

I have stayed at this resort on three occasions, all of which were wonderful! We stayed in a Beachfront room that accomodated 6-which is hard to come by. The rooms are nice and affordable. The staff was amazing! I will not stay anywhere else in Ft. Walton Beach! Thank you Wyndham Garden- Fort Waltong Beach for another memorable experience!

My husband and I decided we needed a break from work and took a quick weekend trip down to the beach. We have stayed in Destin the past few years but chose Fort Walton over Destin this year because we could get a hotel directly on the beach for less than one off the beach in Destin. We were not at all disappointed in Fort Walton or this hotel! Service was above and beyond. We arrived Friday afternoon and check in was extremely busy but all the front desk employees were very friendly and attentive and were even able to get a beachfront hotel with no extra charge, what a treat! Had a wonderful view with a balcony. Room was clean and included a small fridge which we used for snacks and drinks. Our first morning there it rained so we ordered room service for breakfast and took advantage of the free DVD rental to watch a movie. After that we checked out the free bicycles and took a cruise around the area. By the time we got back the sun was shining and we hit the beach. Very clean and complimentary umbrellas and chairs were much appreciated. We grabbed lunch at the hotel grill and it was pretty good, not wonderful but cooked fresh and the bartender (Dougie Fresh) was very friendly. Saturday night they showed a movie at the pool along with popcorn. My husband and I do not have kids but greatly enjoyed it, even if we weren't the "target" audience. Would I stay here again? Absolutely! We are already planning to come back again next year. For the price, location, and added amenities that are provided, you just can't beat it!

Room Tip: Request ocean view and highest floor if available. Avoid ground floor if possible

My husband and I stayed for our Anniversary weekend, and it was so nice! Told this to the manager and he sent up a gift bag for us AND free breakfast down stairs for the next morning! It had a beautiful view from our balcony, room was very modern and clean, A/C worked great, and bed was comfortable! Next time we will bring our 3 children, because they would have so much fun here! Saw the game room, crafts, 2 pools 1with slide, they even played Disney movies on big screen TV's for the kids in the afternoons! So neat! This place is great for couples AND kids! Oh and the beach is perfect, clean white sand and blue water, also get 2 free chairs and an umbrella every day from the hotel!

We got the suite with gulf view, we had 3 adults 2 children and was very comfortable, we went though a lot of towels, and the staff was fast with more every time we called. We ate only once at the hotel (like eating at the local places) but the food at the pool side bar was great the kids really liked the bacon rapped hotdog and the service was fast and friendly. the kids loved the pools and slide but are not really for adults, The beach, we all loved with the free umbrella and chairs, the waves were a little rough so not good for swimming. Over all it was prefect room for a family of 5 with great view and lots of room, had full kitchen with dinning table and free Wi-Fi, the maid service was great and very friendly only down side 1 bathroom in the room and 1 elevator in our building.

Room Tip: go ahead and rent the suite it's worth the extra $10 a night

Dear Valued Guest,

A perfect room for 5 merited a perfect review and we sincerely appreciate you doing so. We are glad you enjoyed our suites, a very unique room in our market. We apologize it only offers 1 bathroom, but I want to point out that we do offer a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom Penthouse at our property. We are happy the kids enjoyed the pool. Thank you for your fantastic feedback and room tip and we look forward to your return visit.
