Excellent Value!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great! It is a bit dated, but I got a great price for this condo. If it were around 150 and up per night then my expectation would be higher. We decided on a last minute to go to Destin and it turned out to be one of the best vacations. My daughter asked to come back to this location. By the way, it was a great trip because my daughter learned to swim on this trip. If she believes it has something to do with the property than so be it. I don't think you can beat the price, the location and the view. It was excellent to say the least! The condo definitely needs some improvement, but for the price you can't beat it.

One more thing, REALJOY sent an email about some work being done at the facility. I was a bit concerned and asked if it would affect the condo. REALJOY called back the next day with great news. She had called the property manager and it was stated it would not affect our stay. It was my birthday and I didn't want any disturbances during our stay. I won't say the young lady's name, but good job, no GREAT JOB! I never expected you to call back. We'll try another REALJOY property in the future!

Great stay with an AMAZING view!!!

  • 4 of 5

My family(three children, my mom, my husband, and myself) spent 3 nights at Ariel Dunes II. Check in was so simple, which we were so thankful for since we had driven for two days to get there. We loved receiving text/email updates and a code to enter the room.

The unit is adorable and very comfortable when you walk in. But, let's get to the point here... THE VIEW IS BREATHTAKING!!!!

We really loved our stay here and the convenience of everything included in the unit.

*The washer and dryer worked great.

*Refrigerator was very nice and worked great.

*Stove top and oven were fine.

(There were some dead bugs in the kitchen cabinets, but at least they were dead, no biggie to us)

*Coffee maker worked great. (Don't forget filters)

*The rest of the unit was clean.

*Restrooms were very clean. Plenty of towels.

*Beds were comfortable (we did have to put a blanket behind the headboard in the master because the headboard hit the wall every time we rolled over. )

My biggest complaint about our stay is that the blanket that I pulled down out of the closet to put behind the headboard was dirty. There were spots on it that were very gross and I just did not like the idea of a blanket being so dirty when it could have easily been washed before arrival. I didn't mention anything to anyone though. It probably would have been easily taken care of.

*The pool was very nice too, we only used it about an hour, because it was late in the day and the kids were tired.

*The beach is heavenly.

Other than the dirty blanket and headboard, the room was pretty much perfect!! We would DEFINITELY go back to this very room. It was pretty incredible to have a view of the emerald coast while I was cooking breakfast and lunch each day. I'm missing it more and more as I'm writing this very message.

Perfect in all ways

Our family came down for a couple of days for Spring Break and this place was just beautiful, easy access to beach and multiple pools. The overlook of the ocean was just amazing.

Great View

  • 3 of 5

The views from the room were great! I love Ariel Dunes we go every year. The area is great every thing needed is in close proximity. The pools are great and a couple blocks from the beach. The room it self was okay. You could tell that this is a rental when it comes to the furniture and finishing everything is "worn", but overall it was a good stay.

LOVED this place. Owners took exceptional care of this room and it is worth every little amount of money I paid. This place was great for my family of 5. A little walk to the beach, maybe 300 yards. You can also drive and park there with ease. Hugh security and EVERYONE was nice to us, we obviously looked like foreigners. Shower was awesome and the water was hot. Balcony made the night romantic.
