I can not express the depths of disappointment experienced when faced with a dirty and dank condo which smelled urine. Not only was the first condo beyond unexceptable, the alternative arrangement made by Sea Scape was crawling with roaches, had a broken AC and smelled of cigarette smoke. When we contacted management about the 80 degree temp. in our condo, there was not immediate response. Needless to say I checked out of the Majestic Sun by Sea Scape at 5AM.
If your idea of quality accomodations and services is in line with that of an hourly motel in the slums, this is the place for you.

Gated gulfside condo in Seascape Resort directly overlooking Miramar beach. 2 bedrooms (1 king & 2 twins) with 2 full baths and complete kitchen plus a washer & dryer. Free covered parking in tri-level garage behind bldg. 3 elevators. Indoor/outdoor pool plus a 2nd outdoor pool plus 2 hottubs are nice, though nothing spectacular. Didn't use fitness center but it looked well equipped. Access codes instead of keys are convenient. Furnishings & decor in this unit are tasteful, nice & recent. Thankfully, this unit doesn't have the outdated mirrored walls that are still in many condos here. Instead, there's a huge framed mirror in the dining area for the illusion of more space that's a nice touch. Beautiful ocean/beach view from balcony. Kitchen & baths are in pretty good condition but not exactly high end and about due for an update. Flat screen tv's with built-in dvd players in livingroom & both bedrooms. Easy beach access right across street. Gorgeous soft white sand. Clear blue/green water was too cold 1st day then perfect for swimming rest of week. Saw small fish & stingrays several times. Nice tennis facilities with clay courts on other side of resort. Lessons & clinic with tennis pro, Fernando, very worthwhile for my teens. Didn't use golf course but it looked good. Overall enjoyed condo & location very much.

Things that need to be fixed or changed:

*Floors in hallways above lobby level look awful. Thought it was a construction zone 1st time elevator doors opened, but it's not.
*Tile floors inside condo didn't seem clean. They'd probably been mopped but there was residue build-up, stained grout & dirty baseboards in places that gave the impression they're not good & clean.
*Standard size pillowcases on king size pillows in master not okay.
*Water pipes howl loudly if faucets are turned on more than a trickle.
*Loudest dishwasher I've ever heard.
*Flimsiest silverware I've ever seen.
*Icemaker not hooked up & no ice trays.
*Tubs drain very slowly & fill with water during shower.
*Wimpy showerheads.

My immediate family goes to Destin twice a year usually (April & 1st week of August). We have stayed at a lot of condo's, some better than others but I don't complain when I know what I'm getting.This is what the pictures didn't show about Majestic Sun:

1) small pool that sits right on the street with lounge chairs that sit right on the pool.
2) on low floors you feel like you are out on the street when on the balcony not in a resort
3) 2000' of public beach,(so it's very crowded)
4) beach rental company that charges $40 a day to rent umbrella and chairs
5) elevators that kept breaking, we used the stairs

We had a 3bdrm/3bath which does have plenty of room but it had stains on the furniture and the rugs and carpet and really needed to be painted. We were in 401A which is a corner unit far away from the pool. You can't see the pool from your balcony. They advertise that you are in Seascape Resort but don't try to use the beautiful pools in Ariel Dunes that are also in Seascape. That's not allowed. I didn't choose this another family member did. That won't happen again. I'm going back to TOP'L, Tides or Beach Manor!!!

We stayed in 1101A (3BR 3 BA) that we rented through Ocean Reef Realty. The unit was great, well stocked, updated, and the view was spectacular. Parking was free and convenient. 3 elevators meant little waiting. The beach although beautiful was quite frustrating. 80% of the choice beach spots are taken each morning by a private company called La Dolce Vita that then rents them out. 2 lawn chairs and 1 umbrella is $40/day. When I complained that for $2413/wk this should be included, I was told that they could get me a discount down to $30/day. You can imagine how crowded the other 20% of the beach is. Also frustrating is the free DVD rentals. Although there is a machine similar to a red box in the lobby it is for guests staying through other agencies. Your DVD box if want to use it is a drive away. Finally the pool is a 3 star at best. Very crowded with ~30 chaise lounges around it. I would come back to this area but would try a different place to stay. Another negative of Ocean Reef Realty is they have Zero refund policy. Book it and you are committed.

We stayed in 909B of Majestic Sun and were very pleased with most things. We have stayed at Majestic Sun and rented through Seascape at least 4 times. This room was the best yet. It was very clean and decorated with modern, comfortable decor. One of the things we didn't like at all was that there is no dead bolt or security lock on the door from the inside of the room. We like the idea of no keys for the doors, but every door and gate in the building had a different code you had to remember... not so good. The only other thing was that the garbage disposal didn't work, but luckily I discovered that before I put anything in it. Overall it was a very pleasant, peaceful vacation. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I go to Destin at least once a year and the Majestic Sun (or any Wyndham resort in the area) is always our hotel of choice.
We were married directly in front of the Majestic last October and our wedding party stayed there, so it holds a dear place in our heart.
For our 6th month anniversary we returned for another wonderful visit. All the comforts of home and a view that can't be beat.
Highly recommend.
