Amazing place to stay on the beach!!!!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 8, 2024
The best place to stay at Fort Walton Beach! The beach location is gorgeous. I highly recommend trying to get a beachside view; sitting on the balcony and taking in the view is amazing. Best hotel staff!!! The pool area/lazy river is always clean and very well kept. The restaurant and dining area are always very clean. The breakfast buffet looks amazing every morning; the fruit selection always looks fresh and for the bacon lovers, it was on the buffet every day of my 18-day stay. Exceptional staff shoutout: Joe the bartender made for the best evening experiences; he is amazing! Every morning started with a smile; Bella was the greatest in the restaurant; greeting everyone with such positive energy and taking amazing care even when we were in a hurry.
I felt taken care of by all of the staff all the time!
Date of stay: April 2024
Room Tip: There is plenty of parking and the price is very reasonable at $10 per day.

Quick weekend trip hotel is located close to restaurants and shops newly renovated room which looks amazing bed Is comfy .Troy, the front desk associate, made my stay here just perfect from getting my rooms close together,recommending things to do and places to see I had many questions and his can do spirit was refreshing never making me feel like a bother not like one of the early morning associate when i try to check in early. bartender was funny and knew all the drinks I wanted when i couldn't remember the name .pool was heated, which was a plus on a cold day, and walk right on the beach from the pool area. It was a wonderful view

Kitchen staffed complained about working. Bartender stated on personal phone evening. Cooks were eating and cooking food at the same time. Very unsanitary. Be careful when ordering food. Be observant of kitchen activities after ordering.
