Our group was traveling with children so we wanted the quickest and easiest route to the beach. Our request was granted. We stayed on the first floor in room 113. The walk to the beach took less than two minutes. Two pools were also within a minute walk. One of the pools have a bar that had some food and...

I have been coming to Destin for over 20 years now. I started going to the TOPS'L when I was about 8 years old with my parents for a family trip. I have been going to the TOPS'L as well as other properties in Destin with my family and now I have moved on to bringing my own kids to...

We stayed in the Summit building. We were on the second floor so did not have a view of anything except the pool and hot tub. Some in our group had rooms on higher floors with views of the sound. We were there for my daughter's wedding. The staff did an excellent job of having things ready for us. The...

The condo at Summit was great. Personally, I prefer either the Tides or Beach Manor because of their close proximity to the beach. However, it was not too far away and the weather made the short walk pleasant. I also like Topsl because it is close to the Outlet malls and great restaurants. The environment is well maintained, beautiful and...

If you're looking for a place to go with a tennis group, TOPS'L is the perfect spot. Two & three bedrooms villas are located in a u-shape around 10 lighted courts. Only takes minutes to walk over to the courts which are kept in excellent condition. Joe and Sam are great tennis instructors for your group or yourself. In between...

This is not a hotel. It is condo and timeshare resort. If you arrive after 7:00 you will need to access your room key by calling a code. Hope for good weather as you will be out side fumbling with a phone and lock. The condo was nice. A bit worn, but decorated nicely. Since this is a family resort...

We arrived at Tops'l the beginning of October. Wow what an amazing resort. The beach is pure sugar white sand with nice shallow water out to the first sand bar (great for kids), the water was warm and lots of dolphins can be seen all day. The beach condos are set back nicely so at night the stars are bright....
