We have always enjoyed the beach. I feel in love with the Gulf the first time I visited. The beautiful blue-green waters and soft 'sugar sand' beaches of the Emerald Coast hooked me the first time I saw them. We work hard to make sure everyone has a great vacation!
Kaye purchased this condo in 2013
We think the grounds at Amalfi Coast Resort are great. Plus the location is terrific -- the beach is right there, outlet shopping is five minutes away, and there are many great restaurants in the area.
The Florida Gulf is terrific. A surprising benefit of this condo is that it is in the shade for much of the afternoon. Even when the days are hot, you can have dinner on the porch or enjoy a drink before going out. The condo is very quiet!
The accommodations are very spacious, clean, bright and very inviting. The mattresses on the double and queen beds could use replacing.
The grounds are nice and well maintained. The kids enjoyed using the cabana and feeding the fish.
This was our first time in Destin. We had to reschedule our vacation that would have normally taken place in the spring, so we were happy to find a place big enough for our family. There were 6 of us; my husband, myself, and 4 kids ages 11-19. It was important that we had space and enough room for some individual privacy and we had plenty. The condo is the size of a small home with 3 baths. The kitchen had plenty of counter space and was well supplied, and we enjoyed the balcony in the late afternoon and evening. We even watched a couple of thunderstorms roll in. We grilled instead of eating out because of the crowds - just not worth the wait for us. The pools were really nice and clean. Our girls would go in the morning as soon as they opened and would be the only ones there at first. Even at mid-day, though, they never seemed overcrowded. The beach is a short pleasant walk away. Shopping is close by, which was good since we didn't realize Destin would be so incredibly busy. It takes forever to get anywhere at peak times. As we walked the beach and drove around we were convinced that we had made the best choice by staying at the Amalfi. It was very restful and pleasant. One thing about the smallest bedroom... we were expecting 2 twin beds for our teens after seeing pictures on the site, but there was also a double bed - rather uncomfortable, that made that room a bit crowded. They were not thrilled with bunk beds, but we adjusted and had fun. Also, check supplies before you shop. We had to buy t-paper immediately because all bathrooms were almost out. This frustrated me at first, but it was a small thing compared with everything else that we enjoyed.
My family and my sister in law's family stayed here(4 adults and 5 kids) and we had more than enough space. One of the bedrooms now has bunk beds and a full size bed plus there is an air mattress there too. It was much bigger than I had expected. We loved that each bedroom had its own full bath. The condo is on the 2nd floor which gave us a great view of both pools and could also see the ocean. The location of the condo is far from the big resorts which made our beach area nice and quiet and not at all crowded. Also, the pools were never crowded, there were always chairs and tables available. Our kids enjoyed feeding the fish and turtles in the pond. Grounds were very clean. The owner was very nice and very easy to work with. This was out first time here and we will definitely be coming back!
The condo was a great fit for our family of three adults with significant others. The fact that we each had our own bathroom was fantastic! The condo is well-equipped - I can't think of anything lacking. Also, the proximity so close to the beautiful beach, the wonderful landscaped grounds, and the excellent pool made out trip relaxing and pleasant.
A couple of improvements would be:
-Less carpeting (I had allergies)
-Update pillow and some of the bedspreads
-Update washer and dryer (it took a lot of energy to dry our clothes)
Otherwise, a great stay!
Our family HIGHLY recommends this condo! We loved that each bedroom in the condo had its own bathroom. This saved so much time when wanting to clean up after a day at the beach! We loved the quick walk to the 2 pools located on the property and to the beach. The condo provided beach chairs and pool noodles which were both extremely helpful. The pools and beach were not crowded and both were very clean. We even were sitting on the beach one day and saw dolphins so close to the shore! IT WAS AMAZING! Next to the pool area is a beautiful green space to grill, toss a frisbee, play football...SO.MUCH.FUN! The kiddos loved feeding the fish in the pond. This condo is close to the outlet mall, The Crab Trap restaurant, and Fudpucker's restaurant. It is about a 20 minute drive to the Destin Harborwalk, but totally worth it. The owner was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to visiting this condo again in the future!
