We go to Destin West almost every year. It's a great place to take your family. The lazy river is huge and awesome. Having access to the Ramada Inn pools is also nice. It's clean and the staff is very friendly. We're looking forward to our next stay there.

We stayed in Villa 301 and were super happy with everything about this resort. The facilities are well maintained, the pool sparkling clean and the white sand beach was spectacular! Situated on Okaloosa Island the area can be quite busy. We arrived on the weekend of a volleyball tournament on the beach (at the Boardwalk) so it was quite busy....

The grounds are incredible. We had the best view! The area around the lazy river was so relaxing. We came with our two small kids and this place offered absolutely everything we could have needed. They do a wonderful job taking care of this resort.

This resort does not lack for things to do. With all the pools, lazy river, and beaches there is something for everyone. We found all the pools and river to be clean. We had some issues with our room, but that is the owners fault not the resorts. My only gripe is at check out this morning, no one was...

Enjoyed the view. Had the sun setting in the west and the moon rising in the east, a full moon no less. (Harvest moon). The beach has lots of room and very clean. The pool area is very big and has kiddie and adult swim areas.

We stayed in Heron 409 managed by Julie at Destinwestcondos.com. The condo was great and had a beautiful view of the lazy river and pool area.

This was our second vacation at Destin West. We rented a Heron condo on the 6th floor from Coastal Vibe vacations. We love the beach and the location near the undeveloped nature/beach preserve. We love the pool options, which are great for children and if the June grass is abundant on the beach/in the water. Our condo was very nice...
