Pros - Unit was clean, updated and comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked. Great towels and lovely to be able to wash them in the washing machine during the week. Could have used a folding chair or two for the table (sleeps 6 but only 4 dining chairs)
Destin is a wonderful place - lots to see and do and lots of shops and restaurants. Beaches are beautiful and very accessible.
Cons - Palms Resort is very tired. The chairs at the pool were falling apart and everything seems a little worn. I specifically asked if the pool would be heated because we were coming in March. Even though they said it would be, we couldn't find anywhere in the pool that seemed heated. Aside from 2 5-minute dips, we didn't use the pool in the 6 nights we stayed (it was cold - and we're from MN) - that was a big disappointment. In hindsight, I wish I would have chosen somewhere with better accessibility to the beach.
In checking out, you need to turn in wrist bands and key cards. We were attempting to do this at 8am, but there wasn't anyone at the desk until 8:20 and the "after hours phone" rang right at the unattended desk as we were standing there. This was frustrating when we had packed up and are trying to hit the road.
Also, they don't recycle on site *at all*. This is 2014 and there is a recycle service across the street (which we visited a couple times). Even just a large recycling bin in the back would be better than nothing.
The sliding door in the bedroom did not lock. Being we were just on the second floor, this was a little concerning, but we didn't call to report it.

This unit was great. The beds were really comfortable. And it had plenty of room for me and my other 3 girlfriend. There was plenty to do in the area. And we frequented the Wal-Mart next door so much we made a friend. Lol. Destin and the palms of destin resort was just the tranquil vacation us busy falls needed. Thank you real joy. Oh yeah and they had the best price if all my findings.
