This has got to be one of the best places to stay in Destin. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, and we loved the DVD free rentals. It's across the street from the beach, but it surely doesn't feel like it. Outside our balcony was the perfect view. I even saw dolphins playing around in the ocean on the day that we left. What a beautiful sight. I could throw a ball into the ocean from our balcony if I really wanted to. It seemed so close. Destin has lost some beach though over the years of huricanes. But nevertheless, it's still a very nice beach. There was alot of algae floating around near the edge of the water, but if you wanted to swim you could walk down the beach a short ways to where the water was clearer. The pool is great as well. It's a little small, but it gets the job done. Lots of chairs around it to sunbathe in. The hot tub was perfect for our evening trips to the pool after dinner. Our room was very comfortable, maybe a little smaller than some rooms, but still very nice. I like the kitchen/bathroom combo area. Talk about getting two things done at one time. Everything was there that we needed. Thank you so much. We will definitely be coming back. Oh, the price in October was a steal. I'm hoping for a great rate in the spring as well. Have fun!

We had a great time at Surfside. It is a nicely decorated property, but not too extravagant. I am pretty picky but our unit met my standards. Surfside is located on Scenic 98 where the beaches are the cleanest and clearest and almost comparable to the Carribean. Although it is across the street, you would hardly ever know it. It is maybe 50 yards from the lobby to the beach and just a couple of minutes walk. I've stayed at resorts on the beach that were further from the water! The beach stays busy and there is a tiki bar down the beach. The pool area is very large and sufficient, but it doesn't have a unique design. The skybridge was pretty awesome although the stairs to the beach were closed for repair, but it was quicker to cross the street from the lobby anyway. I will definitely return to Surfside based on its location and rates, and I would recommend it to you as well.
