I must start by saying that I really enjoyed my vacation in Destin. This condo is great - clean, convenient and beautifully decorated. The view is amazing! And it’s only steps away from the beach, and if you don’t want to “step”, you can call the front desk and they will shuttle you right to the pier.
However, the wifi did not work at all. Called front desk and was told that wifi was only available in the lobby of Pelican Beach Resort and Conference Center, not the Terrace (where we were located). I was told that I had a LAN connection, so after a few calls to the front desk, a day later it “magically” worked. That wasn’t a deal breaker, you’re on vacation and I can definitely stand to back away from the computer. Also, the blender broke one night, I called front desk and they promised me one in the morning. Morning, noon and evening came, no blender. I called front desk again and they had mistakenly taken it to 1406…still no problem. We picked it up at the front desk.
Overall, you can’t go wrong with this condo. You're going to love the decor!
