They have very deceptive business practices. After nearly doubling our negotiated rate, the Destin Seafarer is still charging me $50 to cancel a reservation that is more than 4 months away. I'll never stay at the Destin Seafarer. Beware.
Great unit, beautifully furnished. Have stayed in most of the single bedroom units over the years. Most have been just great. A couple of years were sub-par but they were recovering from hurricane damage and we knew that going in. Best beach service in Destin. Michael appreciates his customers and takes care of them on the beach and beats the competitor's prices.
Management changed in 2007 and seems to be for the better. Can't beat the location. Convenient to everything. Beats the hassle of the high-rise units. Parking is easy.
THE SEAFARAR OFFERED EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD POSSIBLY NEED/WANT FOR A WONDERFUL HONEYMOON.THE VIEW WAS GREAT.THE SEA OATS PLANTED ADDED A SPECIAL TOUCH.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!! WE WILL RETURN FOR OUR 1 YR ANNIVERSARY.
We stayed at this place for 7-8 years in a row. Knew the office people by their first names. We got caught in traffic in Mobile, I called the office to let them know that we were on our way, and asked at that time if we were still in the room that we requested, and they said yes, and that our key would be in the late box. We arrived approximately two hours later around 6 pm. Not only had they given our room to someone else, but they had put us in a room that was the worst excuse for a condo that you could imagine. It was filthy, it stunk, the bathrooms and tubs had not been cleaned, it was hot, there was sand on the floors, the tile looked like it had been replaced by a first grader. We were livid. The next day we finally talked to the front office person, and received a very small discount. I will never stay at this place again. The point is that we have stayed at this place for years and would still, had we not been treated this way. Think twice.
Loved it all; Great rooms, great service; Room was extra clean upon arrival. Convenient for shopping and food. Great escape for couples or a family. This was our first trip to the ocean and what a place, we are so spoiled to it we are coming back in August to stay at the Seafearer again.
We loved the location and the fact that it's a low rise condo. There weren't so many umbrellas on the beach and we liked how we were right in front of the water with noone in front of us. Mike, the beach service guy, was so nice and helpful in every way. The condo was great, too. We will definitely go back!
