I have been to Destin/Miramar Beach, FL many times. This was my 2nd stay at Tops’L tides. I called Resort Quest by Wyndham in January, 2019 to make reservations at the Tides for May, 2019. My family and I were put in room 507. I was told that this room had a pull out couch, I was told that 2 beach chairs and 1 umbrella, daily, would be provided at no extra cost. I was also told that my final payment would automatically be charged to the credit card that I used to make my deposit and would be charged one month prior to arrival. I even called back 2 weeks before arrival to confirm the chairs were free, again I was told yes. None of this happened. When I checked in, I had to pay the remaining balance of $1,300 which I thought had already been taken out of my Visa card. The couch did not fold out and the beach chairs cost $35 per day. Room 507 had plumbing issues with the toilets getting stopped up often. There was no broom or dustpan for us to use. I called the front desk 3 separate days before finally getting a broom and dustpan. (It helps to have one with all the sand that gets in your room.). There were no plastic dishes to use on the outdoor balcony. Every other condo that I stayed at in the Destin area has always had plastic dishes for outdoor use. And our garbage disposal was not working properly, maintenance came and found that someone before us had dropped tweezers in it. When I got home from my 7 night vacation, I called Resort Quest by Wyndham and talked to manager, Avery. I explained all these problems to him. He told me that there was a glitch in the system and that was why my final payment was not taken out prior to my arrival. As for the “free” beach chairs, Avery said that he would have to go back and listen to the phone recording of my calls and he would get back with me within a few days. I never heard back from anyone. Tops’L really disappointed us this time.

My wife and I stayed in unit 711 at Tops'l Beach and Racket club. 711 is a beach front 2 br condo its clean well maintained,we had a wonderful time. I understand that unit is being completely updated later this year, we can't wait to see the changes when we stay there again next year.

This was our second time staying here when visiting Destin, because we usually try to mix it up as far as where we stay when coming here. I was even more impressed this time than the last that we stayed here. It was so comfortable and clean, and it feels like your own space. It’s so much nicer and friendlier than staying in a hotel. You can do laundry, cook and make coffee, and have your own privacy. The best part is having such a short walk to the several pools on site and also to the beach. This is so practical. The staff is always friendly and makes you feel at home.

My wife and I enjoyed Tops’l Resort recently. We stayed in the Beach Manor last Sept., but stayed in the Tides this trip. Always enjoy Tops’l and the area in Miramar. Well maintained resort. The beach awesome and the amenities around condos are very nice. Several pools with food and drinks. Our condo was wonderful. There are many great places to eat in the area and if you like shopping, big outlet mall is just right down the street. The only negative thing I encountered is the road construction along Hwy 98. Making it from Miramar to Destin could take you a little more longer than normal. But other than that, we definitely be back to Tops’l, enjoy it every time.

Friends invited us to join them at this resort for a few days in early May. It was a great time to go as it was very quiet...practically had the place to ourselves. The unit we were given had a great view from the HUGE balcony on the 12th floor. We did have a couple of issues with the Villa we were given. We called maintenance because the dishwasher wasn’t working. Before he arrived we discovered the ice maker wasn’t working and he took care of that as well. The unit looked nice and clean when we first walked in, but quickly saw one of the ceiling fans in a bedroom had so much dust accumulated that clumps of dust were hanging from it and we also had to call for maid service to clean the outdoor furniture on the porch. On the better side, we really enjoyed the pools, lunch at the pool with the ocean just steps away!

Great value for water front, resort condos. Rooms were kinda noisy, water in toilet ran and tv technician was in our condo on day 1. The beach location is great and so are the food locations. Pool was small for such a large number of occupants.

We so enjoyed this location. The beaches were as close to the Caribbean as we have found. The Wharf is a short drive away for food and entertainment. Also short drive to the outlet shopping. The condo was really nice and the indoor parking was more than we expected. The condo also had four beach chairs and an umbrella for us to use on the beach. We are going back this year.

We go here every year for a huge tennis tournament. Our accommodations are wonderful. Excellent staff. Close to lots of shopping. Beaches are beautiful. Great exercise room, sauna, and pool. Plenty of near by restaurants.

My daughter and I just returned from Destin/Miramar Beach vacation. Tops’l Resort was beyond our expectations. I booked the trip through Allegiant without any idea about Tops’l. We stayed in The Summit room 1007A which appeared to be recently updated and was very clean. We did have a view of the ocean but had a slight walk to the beach. Due to the time of year the resort was very quiet and we never felt unsafe at the resort or in Destin/Miramar Beach. We had a couple of minor incidents which is why I didn’t give 5 stars. We got to the resort around 9:00 Christmas Eve, unsure of where to go because I assumed someone would be there to check us in as any hotel would. After pulling up to the gate and greeted by a nice man he said I’d need to turn around and go to the main building find the phone and dial after hours service to get the instructions. This just seemed very clunky. Also after a long day of travel we needed food, of course it’s Christmas Eve and we had only one option which thank goodness for the Waffle House. We called for additional towels because you don’t have maid service like a standard hotel, I called after hours again and was told I wasn’t staying in one of their properties..after much convincing they finally found me but told me I’d have to call back in the morning. The day we were leaving the resort there was a knock at the door, it was the cleaning lady and she was rude because I told her we weren’t leaving until 12:00 - then another knock maintence asking if we called to complain about not having hot water which we didn’t....for some reason this resort really struggled with the number system. Over all I would recommend Tops’l Resort!

This time my adult children and I stayed at 610 the Tides. I have stayed at the Summit and Beach Manor. The other condos were more tastefully furnished. Linens were limited. However I still love Tops’l because of its proximity to the Outlet mall and other stores. The beach is beautiful. Sunsets are amazing. I like the convenience of being able to do the laundry in the unit.
