Our family had a wonderful Destin vacation thanks in part to Holiday Isle and Poolside Villa 106. The condo was perfect!! More than we even hoped for. Beautifully decorated, wonderful location and very clean and accomodating. Our children loved the easy pool access. We were so impressed with the hospitality of the Holiday Isle staff. Upon arrival we had a minor issue with the television and within an hour of reporting it the owner of the condo was at our door and quickly remedied the problem. We cannot wait to visit Poolside Villa 106 amd Destin Florida again!!
Poolside Villas-Great Condo, Disappointing Beach
Reviewed on Monday, July 21, 2014
We loved the Poolside Villas condo. Rooms were clean and there was no outside noise. I've stayed at Poolside Villas many years ago and the CONDO was just as I remembered. The only problem we had was the beach. The beach/ocean in front of Poolside Villas is in my opinion the most beautiful beach in Destin. However, this time the beach was taken over by people who were brought in by boat from some other hotel..Emerald Grande I believe. We were told to move several times because the ocean front was for those guest only. I can't understand how some other hotel gets all the rights to the beach in front of MY condo. We ask if we could rent chairs from them and each day we were quoted a different cost. First day $30 for 4 chairs 1 umbrella (you have to take 4). Second day it was $5/per chair and $10 umbrella (you pick how many chairs you want). Third day it was $50!!! And they were constantly asking for TIPS... "IF you tip me you can get an umbrella on the front row". These guys were SHADY to say the least! And the other end of the beach was bombarded with 6-8 huge boats a day of snorkelers. It was still the same beautiful beach, but definitely NOT the quite unoccupied place I remember. They hauled boat load after boat load of people in there all day long. We made the best of it, but were very disappointed. Can't say I'd return here unless the beach situation changes.
