Fantastic and fun weekend getaway

My fiance and I just wanted to get away for a weekend and stay at a reasonably priced hotel, with a Gulf view. At first we booked a room with a king size, but when we got to the hotel we discovered we were upgraded since the hotel was overbooked. We were thrilled! We ran up to out room, which was sparkly clean, pulled open the curtains and oo-ed and ah-ed at our amazing view of the Gulf, and the rest of the resort. They are also only about 15 minutes away from Destin where there's a beautiful boardwalk full of shops and restaurants. Not only was our room superbly clean, but so was the rest of the hotel. The pools were clean, the outdoor dining area was clean, as well as the indoor cafeteria. The staff was pleasant and willing to help in any way that they could with whatever we needed. Whether you are planning a family vacation with the kids, or a weekend away with your significant other, I highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely be staying there again.

If you're taking a stroll at the Harborwalk in Wyndham Emerald Grande and you get hungry, your best bet for great service and AWESOME food is Jackacudas.

Decent hotel on beach

As beach hotels go this one is okay. They have a decent pool with great water slide and do offer activities and movies. The hotel was so-so for cleanliness. Our room was clean, but the property was not. There was a diaper shoved up in the stairs leading out to the beach the whole trip including other paper/beer can waste. There is a decent gym, kids arcade and they did offer a free movie rental upon check in. The price was average.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Our room had a kitchenette that was stocked with plates, utensils etc, a range and full fridge and microwave. Bring some items to cook, but if that's not your thing the food at the hotel wasn't too bad on price.

Overall good stay, bad room

The room I stayed in had its faults, the door was hard to open and close, the main deadbolt didn't work, the chain lock was broken, the fan in the bathroom was broken and cover was hanging down, the bathroom door was tough to open and close and there was some sort of equipment left in the room that I'm not sure what it was. The rest of the hotel was wonderful, with easy beach access, pool access and plenty for the little ones to do.

Fun girls getaway

I took my daughter here on one last vacation before she goes off for college. The location was great,staff was friendly. I wish the rooms would have been updated and a little more roomy. Only disappointment would be they did not offer free breakfast or good prices for family meals. I would stay again if I got another vacation package that included hotel, airfare and car.

Weekend getaway

Love condos but was unable to get one for just a weekend getaway. This hotel is older but severed our purpose just fine. Located directly on the beach and close to restaurants. Rooms were small but clean. Weather was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. Free beach chairs were a wonderful addition. The tiki bar was convenient for lunch and drinks. Two pools for those who enjoy swimming when the beach has red flags. We had a great time at this hotel.
