Fodor's Review

The hotel's towering, circular, 1960s-space-age design ensures most rooms get a great view of the gulf, which is only a few steps away. The location offers the chance to lounge on sugar-white sands, get to several golf courses with ease, and walk to some of Destin's amusement parks. Common areas—jazzed up with skylights and greenery—are spacious and eye-pleasing. Standard rooms feature pillow-top mattresses and are uniformly bright and well kept; prices vary depending

on the view. Family-friendly, the hotel has kiddie pools and "kids' suites" (with bunk beds), magic shows, and nature talks.
