About Diane

My husband and I and three grown children enjoy every visit to the Palms of Destin Resort and Conference Center. It is a wonderful resort for all ages and is affordable for families. We own 2 units at the Palms of Destin and often use both for family getaways.

Diane purchased this condo in 2007

Why Diane chose Destin

This property has all the amenities of a large resort however the price is affordable for families. It is located in the heart of Destin with shuttle service across the street to the beach. The pool is fantastic and one of the nicest in Destin. There is the large lagoon pool, an adult pool or heated pool in the winter months, a 25 person hot tub, and a children's pool with a splash fountain.

What makes this condo unique

This resort is located near all the activities that families enjoy on vacation. There are nice restaurants near by, a water park, putt putt golf, the beach, go kart rides, movie theaters and shopping at the Commons and Silver Sands outlet mall.

Condo was perfect for our family but the actual resort was very disappointing.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the condo was big enough for our family. Very clean and came with everything we needed for our stay. However, the actual resort was very disappointing. The pool was nasty and needed cleaning. The hallways were so loud we weren’t able to sleep. I know it was Spring Break but beside the halls the pool was crowded too. Kids had music playing loudly, beer everywhere and even a beer funnel which started a whole other conversation with my daughter. I know the resort can’t control anything like noise. The one staff member we did see wasn’t nice at all and acted like she didn’t want to answer my question. If I could stay at this condo at another resort I would but I will not be staying at the Palms ever again. Diane was awesome! She answered me quickly while we were on our trip and made sure everything was ok! We did have a great time in Destin!

Owner's Response: Meghan, I wish you had contacted me regarding the noise etc. I was in the area and would have come to the Palms and contacted our Condo Association Manager as well as Board members to see what should have done to control the noise and the behavior. Spring Break for college is usually over by Easter and the resort does not usually rent to unattended guest behaving badly. I am surprised that this was allowed to go on. I plan to send you comments on to find our why the on site management company and our security guards did not step in and address the problems. I have never had a review with these issues and I will get to the bottom of what happened. I realize that this will not assist you as you can not get back the days that you would have enjoyed at the pool which is usually spotless and a very pleasant place to spend time. I have other resorts and would love to offer you a discount at one of my other units if a stay in Destin or Panama City Beach will work for you another time. Thank you for letting me know that your experience was not what was expected so that these issues can be addresses by our Board and our Condo Association manager. Diane

So easy and nice!

  • 5 of 5

Diane was so easy to work with! I stayed with my friends here for spring break and everything was perfect! The Palms is so nice and the shuttle was a huge help with getting to the beach. The shuttle also takes you to Harborwalk Village which was very convenient! The pool area was so fun during the day. Overall a great stay!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. It has been one of the most enjoyable trip we have taken as a family. The condo is on the very top floor (penthouse) with great views. Its in close proximity to everything but also peaceful and quiet. The Walmart, an outdoor mall, shopping outlets, restaurants, harbor walk, nightlife and the beach are all in very close proximity. The staff is quite helpful, a lagoon pool, and restaurant/bar with a pool table are also on location. Everything you need is provided for: great security, free wi-fi, cooking utensils, bed linen, towels and even a washer and dryer that came very handy. The owner, Diane was easy to get in touch with and quite pleasant to deal with.

We want all guest to enjoy their vacations and have the time to have fun with their families. I would love to have you visit us again at the Palms. It is so nice to hear when a guest has nice things to say about the condo, the resort and the Destin area which is beautiful this time of year.

great condo/resort

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just as advertised , very clean, & great views. Resort was immaculate. It has a very upscale hotel feel. Owner was very easy to communicate with and very friendly. I highly recommend Destin Snorkel with or without young kids. We did the shelling tour and found many, many beautiful shells. Also I recommend James Beasley park area. Beaches without condos behind you

You feel very secluded but only 5 minutes away.
