Destin Area Information

Destin is well known as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village largely because of its roots as a top fishing destination and quick access to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Destin boasts the largest charter fishing fleet in the state of Florida. If you have an interest in charter deep sea fishing – Destin is the place. But, there is much more to Destin than charter fishing. Destin has evolved over the years to be a top beach vacation destination. Featuring sugar-white sand beaches and emerald-colored water, it is an absolutely beautiful area. The town itself offers many upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities. Much of the development of the area has been done with luxury lifestyles in mind. Destin also has one of the busiest private airports in the country. There are an abundance of things to do in Destin to include water parks, water sports rentals, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, power boating, sailing, fishing, tennis, shopping, or just plain relaxing on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Treat yourself to a great little beach town vacation – Destin, Florida, located on Florida’s Panhandle.

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Bella Riva and as always, the condos here are lovely. This particular condo had foam mattresses in the master and one other bedroom. Therefore this was possibly the best bed we've had yet out of the 3 condos we've stayed in. It also had a bunk room which was great fun for the children. We enjoyed having a large dining room table inside and a circular table outside. There were ample towels, dinnerware and cooking items. The beach here is never too busy and the view is beautiful. We will definitely be back again.

Bella Riva is beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful well maintained and equipped unit. The bedding was very comfortable. It suited our family of 10 well. I can't say enough good things about the staff of Compass Resorts! They were very attentive to any issues and very pleasant to work with. The only reason I did not give this property 5 stars was parking. They only allow 2 vehicles per unit in this complex, which is an issue for 3 families with car seats. One vehicle had to be parked 2 blocks away which was very inconvenient. If you park in the lot without a pass they will tow your vehicle which happened to another family in a different unit. I would stay here again if they change the parking. In a 4 bedroom unit it really should come with 3 spaces. Apparently this is part of the HOA for Bella Riva and has no bearing on Compass Resorts. I will definitely use Compass again and really hope they change this, Bella Riva is a beautiful complex.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

From the first phone interaction with Compass Resorts, to our arrival, the stay, and departure, we have nothing but positive things to say. I recommend using the Compass Resorts app. It was extremely helpful, as were each and every employee I spoke with over the phone. More companies should be like Compass Resorts. The property is amazing. When we arrived, it was ready, clean and stocked. Things we particularly enjoyed were the Master suite with balcony overlooking the beach, all Viking kitchen appliances, gas grill, very secure atmosphere, and location. We would recommend this property to anyone and look forward to returning again.

Fantastic location, facilities, and atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! The condo was spacious and comfortable for our entire family. We loved the private location on Okaloosa Island. In addition to the privacy, we found ourselves conveniently close to excellent restaurants, family attractions, and Florida nightlife. The area has something for everyone! The condo itself has all the amenities of home including a fully stocked kitchen with Viking appliances and gas grill on the balcony. With this condo we didn't have to fight for a grill to use with all the other residents! What a bonus! The condo was in immaculate condition which makes a clean freak like me tremendously more comfortable staying here. The view from the second floor is perfect! You can't find a a better unobstructed view of the beaches anywhere else!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo, spacious, well-maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with all of the amenities, and the bathrooms were clean and spacious as well. The balcony was large with an outdoor grill, and offered a spectacular view. The pool and grounds were well-maintained and secure. Although the location is convenient to shops and restaurants, the condo is in a peaceful and secluded area. I give this condo a high recommendation!

I was very pleased that the virtual tour showed exactly how the room looked. Very clean and extremely comfortable! We used the outdoor grill and cooked in several nights - everything we needed was there - well stocked kitchen! The Bella Riva property was pretty, the pool clean and well maintained. I had a wonderful time and would recommend staying there to anyone!
