Spacious room, not right on beach, great view

Posted Aug 19, 2014
We stayed at the Summit for 5 nights, the room was clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. The bed was really comfortable, the bathroom was spacious with two sinks, a jetted tub and a shower. They only offer start up amenities and theres no daily housekeeping services. The view from the balcony was nice. The Summit is a short walk to the beach, it can seem longer though. They provide free tram service which will drop you off right outside the Tides building for an even shorter walk (which is nice when traveling w kids). The beach was gorgeous. We didnt rent chairs or an umbrella when we went out there but I would recommend doing so otherwise you end up with a partial ocean view. The staff sets up your reserved seating several feet from the water. I was looking forward to the "miles of undeveloped beach" for shelling, but its a no trespassing zone. The pool was great. The silver sands outlet stores are really close so this location is great for shopping. Its a short drive to other public beaches, souvenir shops and great food. Traffic wasnt bad when we traveled to and from but we avoided rush hours and dined early or later. The restaurants on the property dont take cash or CC, you use a hotel issued card that charges everything back to your room, which is convenient. Overall we had a great stay and would stay here again, perhaps in the Tides or Beach Manor.

First time for us at the Summit

Posted Aug 5, 2014
We usually stay at Beach Manor or Tides, but the Summit unit we stayed in was lovely. We thought getting around the resort might be more difficult, but the shuttles were so frequent and the walking was not far at all. Great stay in our favorite Destin resort!

Nice view of the beach/ocean

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: close to beach nice pool drinks at tiki bar were way way to expensive
Cons: It was noisy Our bedroom faced the 3 elevators & had 2 windows in it, even closed very noisy Never saw a clean towel Had to call for toilet paper
Location: Not much to do near by, had to drive a ways We did find a nice Outlet Strip Mall
Nice hotel but we never saw a maid in 6 days, never saw a clean towel in 6 days, had to call operator for toilet paper because there was one roll for 5 people for 6 days, operator was nasty and said "all maids were busy that he didn't know how long it would take to get it to us" (AND IT TOOK A WHILE) Noise level was bad, the bedroom walls were next to the walk ways and it sound like people were coming through the wall, sounded like NO insulation. The rooms were expensive enough, I felt a beach umbrella & 2 chairs should of been part of the room package. Nice pools. Gratuity was added on the sale of one beer :( Tiki bar prices were way to high, couldn't afford to have more than one drink, could of sold way more drinks if prices weren't out of the ball park and it's ridicules to add gratuity for the sale of one beer :(

Private beach made the trip

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Ocean view and the private beach.
Location: Tops'l is a little ways down from the madness of Destin, which is nice. Turn left for tourist stuff, right for quieter stuff.
The property: Looks nice. Well maintained. There is a security gate only guests can drive through, if that matters to you. 5 swimming pools so no lack of places to cool off. Our room: My boyfriend and I booked a king studio. Ended up in The Summit, 7th floor with a gorgeous view of the ocean. The room was just big enough for us and our luggage. Bathroom was huge. The bed was ok but the sides were sagging and the fitted sheet would not stay put. Pillows were too hard for me. Didn't keep me awake. What did keep me awake was the group of women in the adjoining room who started up at 7:30 every morning. I could literally hear every word, lots of laughter, and everything they did in their kitchen. Also, the Wifi was pretty much useless. Staff: Check in was fast, everyone was friendly and helpful. On our first night we walked over to Club Tiki to get some cocktails and food. It's an outdoor bar by a pool. The little girl bartending was nice but clueless. We left very annoyed. We didn't get drinks or food from anywhere else on the property after that so I can't comment on other facilities/staff. Beach: Private. Loved it. Spent most of our time here. Even on July 4 it wasn't too crowded. Chair/umbrella rental 28/day. Worth it. My advice: Avoid an adjoining room if possible unless you know the people in the other room. Bring your own pillows, beach stuff, groceries, etc.

Pros: checking out of hotel
Cons: everything needs improvement
Location: shopping
upon, arrival told of a $75 cleaning fee but during 4 night stay, no one came to clean room, was told only cleaned upon checking out...lol...also only given 1 cup of coffee for entire stay. room was dirty, old mattress and pillow...only allowed 4 towels for entire stay!...thin walls heard neighbors every morning. furniture was old esp patio wicker chairs were completely unravelled ...in quite embarrassing shape! need less to say we wanted to leave early but was told there was no manager to refund credit....also beach was 15min walk...not beach front. most of time we drove to public beaches and parked near beach.
