Stay away from this hotel

Posted Aug 11, 2017
The only good point to this hotel was the beach, there was a great view of the beach and ocean from our room and was provided 2 beach chairs and a beach umbrella. The room itself was very poor. The beds were very small, the maids took our dirty towels but did not leave clean ones, did no cleaning at all. We had mold on bedroom ceiling and the air conditioner would only run or turn off, the thermostat was not working, and it seemed to only cool and did nothing for moisture in the room,every thing was damp. On check out day, the maids showed up an hour before check out and hung outside our door until we left. The café was suppose to serve breakfast until 11am. The first day we ate there and took an hour to get our food after we ordered. On check out day we arrived at the café at 10:40 am as they were closing the doors and told they didn't think we could eat in 15 minutes so they were not open for us.

Great location and views of the Gulf.

Our family of 4 had a great time here. We had a room with a kitchenette and ocean views. It was wonderful. The only issues were an elevator that didn't always work, but it was addressed quickly. We had a remote with no batteries, but it was clean and everyone was nice. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room because we were either on the beach (complimentary umbrella and chairs) or doing things in the area. We were happy with the location away from the heavy traffic in Destin, but did venture into Destin a couple times.

WORDS FAIL ME....

Posted Jul 30, 2017
Pros: CLOSE TO THE BEACH.
Cons: DO THE PLACE UP..... ITS NOT CLEAP TO STAY ------ SO RE INVEST - IT NEEDS IT....
Location: Fort walton is stunning, something for everyone and place we visit time and time again. Local people happy and sun is out. The beach is beautiful...
We visit fort Walton a few times a year.... We travelled here from the UK and on arrival at this hotel all seemed OK. Once we got the key to the room.... Words can't describe the room - It was WORSE than TERRIBLE... AND THE SMELL... We went back to reception and to be far the managers she was helpful offering the cleaning staff to go and look at the room.... BUT no cleaning could fixed that... We refused to stay... Issue then was we had two children one of which a baby and no hotel... but hand on heart would have rather slept in our rental car..... We found a hotel Thank the lord and it was lovely!!! This area is beautiful and there is no need for a hotel to be like that... Do it up...!!! WORST hotel we have ever visited and we have stayed at 100's on our travels. DONT VISIT - PICK A NICE HOTEL IN THE AREA....

Very Disappointed

Posted Jul 29, 2017
I have had no negative experiences with this hotel for 3 consecutive years until this year. We were asked for a credit card at checkin for incidentals. I have never given a credit card before other than to pay for my room fee. Instead of holding the card number, they charged an amount to the card in advance as a "deposit". I tried to speak with a manager about this and no one was ever available. Also tried to call back on my way home and was told I would get s return call shortly. I never got one. Not too happy this year and probably will not return to this hotel. Customer service is horrible.

had a good time, but hotel was not in great shape.

Posted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: most of the staff was friendly and helpful. we like the free DVD rental and the arcade for kids.
Cons: up date the rooms and make sure everything work properly.
Location: plenty to do near by. plenty places to eat and shop, and lot for kids or teens to do. The Gulfarium was one of our favorite places to visit
first we were disappointed that our balcony view was directly above a noise swimming pool, so I felt the description of the room view was misleading, since it just said "gulf view". Then they would not let you smoke on your balcony and would fine you 200 if you did. Our AC unit was very noise and made it hard to sleep at night. and our toilet was hard to flush and once it stopped up and over flowed. when the maintenance man came to unclog the toilet, he made it seem that it was our fault and started lecturing me on what to do next time, instead of really fixing the problem which was a toilet that did not flush properly in the first place. We liked the outside bar, however the next morning we noticed a mouse coming from the bar.

Worst vacation ever!!

Posted Jul 21, 2017
This was my family's first and last visit to Fort WAlton beach at WYndym. I was sold on their description, clean family friendly room with ocean views and just steps to the beach... I was completely disappointed! The room was dirty, the sofa bed torn, and my beautiful view was a dirty beach that had dead fish all over! Opening my balcony doors was a big mistake... the smell of dead fish was overwhelming. My daughters 4 &7 would not go any where near the water because they were terrified of all the dead fish. I tried to cancel my stay early and move to another hotel owned by wyndym but the manager Laurie said I had to pay for two nights even if I checked out at noon. I was completely frustrated by the lack of concern for their costumers. I will never stay at a wyndym hotel or recommend to anyone. My family visits florida every year and I have never been so disppointed in all my life with the service anf quality I received from this hotel.
