The location was beautiful. Right on the beach and our room overlooked the ocean but the condo was in disrepair. Moldy showers, broken gates to the pool. All amenities were closed the whole time. There was a note in a book in the condo in 2017 saying replace the mattress and all they did was put a lumpy padding on top. The entry carpets were stained and needed replaced.

Absolutely WONDERFUL staff & perfect location! Everyone, literally, on staff was AMAZING.

Beach front. Loved the view & the sounds of the ocean. The property is in a good location, close to all the happenings

Loved everything about the property,the staff was professional and nice!

I highly recommend this resort! Rooms are spacious and scenery was great! The view of the beach was Awesome! Friendly staff!

We stayed in Condo 1008. 1 bedroom, bunkbeds, and pullout couch, directly facing the golf of Mexico. The place was pretty nice, it was clean, plenty of space, the view was Amazing from the balcony. The kitchen was nice. The security of the property was wonderful, The layout of the pool, cafe, gift shop was a little weird, You have to go outside of the main building. throught the outdoor pool gates, walk around 2 pools to get to the cafe and store, and the pools were super crowded, so It wasnt a place we visited after the 1st day. The beach is beautiful, HOWEVER-The shear number of rental chairs and umbrellas that they cram into their portion of beach is ridiculous! I walked for miles each way during our trip, and Our property was the ONLY one that had more than 1 row of chairs set up, that have to be paid for before use. You can barely see any sand! This was our 1 big complaint during our stay. *Keeping in mind it was during spring break, BUT it was also spring break at every other resort, and nobody had 3 rows of chairs set up everyday!! The only good view of the water was from our 10th floor balcony, or at 6am. I would never stay here again during spring break. The only other issue we had was after giving my credit card # 2 seperate times so that we could make charges to our room, I received a call from the office on day 6, basically accusing me of trying to scam their system by ordering drinks at the tiki bar, after "NOT providing a credit card #" according to the lady

Condo was bright and beautiful. Had everything we needed and what wasn't there was easy to pick up. Pool area was great and beach was beautiful.

We have never been to Destin FL we booked through Orbits and were very happy to find the hotel was as it was advertised. It's just a happy place!!!

We loved this place. Definitely would stay again. Room was spacious and very clean. 1st time in a condo....won't go back to a regular hotel room for a long beach vacation.

Great trip! Plan for one every year!! If you have never been to destin, you need to go!!

The hotel was very nice and had a great view. The screen going to the Patio was really in need of repair. It was off its track and almost impossile to open and shul.
