Make sure you have the right codes. i booked the year before, and they change codes every year. Southern resorts was very nice about getting everything fixed for me! The room was very night! Loved the bathrooms and balcony! Very nice view of the gulf and fishing pier! (my husband loved it!) Pools, hot tubs, and tiki bar was awesome! Thanks for a great stay!!! Walking distance to waffle house, gas station, 3 souvenier shops, gulfarium, and pier!

We stayed in this condo with our 3 small children over Spring Break, and it was just perfect! Very clean, plenty of room, beautiful ocean view, close to the pools and beach and not too far from parking. Couldn't have asked for a better condo!

We loved our stay there. We found the accommodations to fit all of our needs. The location of Waterscape is central to many activities, restaurants, and fun things to do. The Gulfarium was an incredible experience. The pool at waterscape is amazing!
Great for families!!

We enjoyed this unit. We are a family of 6 and had plenty of room. I would only suggest one thing...bring some grill tools with you.
Great Condo - Great Pools - Bad Junegrass & sea squids!
Left on 09/01/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | IMABEACHGIRL
Very nice condo with great pools and wonderful staff. Loved the early checkin - totally worth the fee. The pool closes kinda early - they kick everyone out at 10 pm sharp... But overall Very happy with everything except the beach. We have been to Destin 5 times (but never ft walton beach) Waterscape Beach had horrible june grass and sea squids (5 out of the 7 days) so bad you couldnt get in the water. I talked to the beach staff and they said this is a common problem due to the sand bar location...Next time I'll go back across the bridge to destin because of the beach. But if you don't like to swim in the ocean this is the place for you.

The complex was great. Awesome pools, loved the location and the workout room overlooking the pool was nice.
Our unit was disappointing the flooring trim was loose and had to be moved out of our way. The TV was missing a remote. the fan in master bedroom didn't work properly. We called the phone number and reported these issues however no one ever showed up to fix these items.
Great complex for families with children

Both bedrooms and bathrooms were large. Masterbedroom had a sleigh bed which left about 6 inches to walk between the bed and the dresser. Ceiling fan in master did not work, couldn not get it fixed until the second day. Overall unit could have been cleaner.
Great family time in an outstanding setting

We all had a great time. Everyone was happy with the accomadations. The facilities including the pools were exceptional. Signage could be improved to get around, including the lobby.
First large family vacation in 20 years.

This is a great place for families there were pool access everywhere and the beach was right there we could walk to the fishing pier. It was a very good experience.
Nice, but could have been a lot cleaner!

The Waterscape resort was very nice and our side view was nice as well. However, our room was very dirty and the carpets had stains everywhere! We will probably return to the Waterscape, but we will try a new condo next time.

We absolutely loved the resort. It is a great place for families. There are lots of things to keep the kids entertained. My only 2 minor complaints about the pool area is that it doesn't get much sun throughout the day because the buildings block the light; however, the beach is just steps away for those who like to work on their tan. The other issue is the resort requires you to wear arm bands to show that you are a guest of the resort. Who wants that armband tan line? I understand they're trying to keep others from utilizing the pool area but there's got to be a better way to keep track of guests.
As for the actual condo unit. It was very spacious and had all the amenities of home. There's a large bathroom with huge showers and tubs in both bedrooms. There is also a separate toilet room right off the dining area so that guests staying in the bunk room or sleeper sofa do not have to disturb people sleeping in the bedrooms.
My only complaint about the condo unit is the bedspreads were not clean. We had to call southern resorts to request another blanket because there was some nasty stains on one of the bedspreads. They brought us a replacement blanket in a pretty reasonable time. Later that day we noticed stains on the other comforter, but we didn't call to complain we just put that comforter to the side and used a spare blanket from the closet.
Overall, I definitely would stay at the resort again. However, I wouldn't recommend staying here during peak season because it can get pretty crowded at the pool. Hopefully, the next time we go back when can get one of the end units with the panoramic views of the beach.
Thank you for letting us know how your stay went. The guest reviews are essential for our company to provide the best vacation experience to our guest and keep you up to date on your concerns. To keep the pool area from being overcrowded so our paying guests can enjoy the amenities, our guests are required to have in their possession a Waterscape wristband. We will let the association know your concerns and see if we can provide thinner bands. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the comforts and space of this wonderful condo. I apologize the comforters had stains on them. We have since had them laundered and will do a better job in the future making sure they stay cleaned. We hope to see you again and thank you for choosing Southern Resorts.
At your service,
Director of Guest Services
Wonderful pools, amenities - room was tight, bugs

We stayed in unit 209A for the week of July 25th. The condo was very nice but the bedrooms were small. We could barely walk between the footboard of the bed and the dresser. We could not use the dresser drawers because there was not enough room to stand in front of it and open the drawers at the same time! Early in the week we noticed a few brown bugs in the kitchen. By the end of the week it was very common. We were very careful with our food. The resort's location was nice - easy to get to. The water amenities were great. The kids loved the lazy river, slide and waterfall pool. Overall, our stay was nice but we were disappointed with the size of the condo and the BUGS! Read more

The home we stayed in was wonderful in all ways except one major way and one minor way. There was an infestation of roaches in the kitchen. One was also seen crawling on the ceiling of the bunkbed area. When I opened the dishwasher the first morning to put away the clean dishes, at least a dozen small roaches scampered. I was appalled horrified! I called the office thinking that an exterminator would be sent up. Instead, a man came and told us he could go to Wal-mart and get a can of Raid for us. Since I had two babies in the home, I did not want that and asked if we could have Combat. The maintenance person put the Combat down while we were at the beach. We definitely saw a reduction of roaches by the 3rd day, however, they were not eradicated. We killed several each day we were there which were crawling in the dishwasher or on the counter, cupboards or floor. It was quite disconcerting that I might bring home some travelers.
The minor issue was the house was not equipped with a broom and dustpan. I would have liked to sweep up the tiled areas on a daily basis.
I loved the Waterscape complex and would like to stay there again. I was with six brothers and sisters and my condo was the only one out of the seven of us with bugs. Two of my sisters had very uncomfortable master beds which made their vacation less than wonderful. I would like to stay there again and I would even stay in 209A IF someone could guarantee me that the roach problem was gone.
This was the perfect vacation spot for our families!

We loved our stay at Waterscape....we travel with a few families and the childrens age range is from 9 years old to 19 years old. All of the children enjoyed our stay--so much to do, people to meet (it was crowded!) and a beautiful, convenient facility......we look forward to going next year!
Lots of fun

We were very happy our entire stay of four weeks. Everything in the unit was first class, including the furnishings and the view.
Shopping and restaurants are all close by.
The entire property is the best in the area.
We will be back!

The condo that we stayed in was very nice. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and the kids loved the bunk bed. The view was awesome (you can see the pier from the balcony). The pools and lazy river were fun, too. Our only complaint was that the sofa bed was not comfortable enough for someone to have to sleep on the whole week! We would definitely return to this property..
Wonderfully located condo
Left on 11/06/2008 for a stay in August 2008 | Holly
This beautifully appointed condo was our Waterscape home for 10 days in August 2008. We were there during the Tropical Storm with two small children (ages 2 and 4) and had a wonderful time.
The pluses: nicely decorated, kitchen fully stocked. Nice king bed (great for full-family mornings), very large master shower (good for showering the kids en masse after a morning at the beach). The location of the condo is great -- near both sets of stairs, near the parking garage, and with a wonderful view of the ocean and adjacent protected dunes. FAR SUPERIOR (in my view) to the inner views that Waterscape pushes.
A few minuses: the front door does not lock from the inside. So if you have a sleepwalking child who can open doors, it's alarming. (We used a chair in front of the doors.) My kids were a little young for the bunk beds, which made things a little tricky for us -- my daredevil 2-year old was obsessed with climbing them and there was no way to prevent this.
In terms of Waterscape... we went for the pool amenities and these did not disappoint. Beach rentals are crazy expensive... bring your own gear. Although packages are suppose to 'include' beach service, don't believe it, it's not the way it works -- no matter what the sellers tell you over the phone. One major, MAJOR disappointment for us was that although the condo itself is nonsmoking, the PROPERTY is not. My daughter was actually burned by ash that blew over from a guest smoking while standing in the kids' wading pool area. When I complained to the staff, they were annoyed and only grudgingly helpful.
Also, I rented this by contacting the owner of the property, who was very kind and worked out a rental with me. I did this because I found the Waterscape rental/sales staff to be pushy, misleading, and dishonest about property availability. Southern Rentals was nice to work with and I would seek out a rental through their agency again.
In short, I'm not sure if I would stay in Waterscape again, but if I did, I would definitely seek out this condo.

We loved staying at Waterscape. The pools and lazy river are great. Our condo was beautiful. We loved the view from our balcony. It is our favorite new property.

My family spent a week at the Waterscape Southern Resort Rental. This was an absolutely perfect family vacation. The entire resort was focused around children and families. They had a fun activity for children of all ages everyday, and a grand finally drive in movie in the pool!!! What an incredible vacation. We would definitely stay there again!!!
Wonderful vacation spot

We just spent a wonderful week at Waterscape in Ft Walton Beach.This was a wonderful condo with a great view of the ocean from our unit, all the pools for the kids made it a relaxing stay.The grills around the pool at night would strave you with everyone cooking but there was plenty of grills for everyone.The pictures of the condo on the web site do not do the unit
justice it was very clean and spacious. I would recommended this place to anyone.
The people at Southern Resorts who I rented thru were also very friendly and helpful,the key to our room quit working one night I had left the other key in the room so here I was locked out, called the # to Southern Resorts and someone was there with a new key within 10 minutes.Wonderful Place.

My wife and I,son, daughter in law, and grandchildren enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location was very convenient yet uncrowded. Only complaint was the poor shower heads located in an otherwise impressive shower. We will definitely consider returning in the future. The area was as fun for seniors as well as the youngsters.
