I will start by saying that nothing that happened with our rental was enough to ruin the whole stay, but it was definitely below the standards we have come to expect from staying with compass. And it was our first time to rent this particular unit. With that being said, here were our issues:
Upon arrival at around 10 pm we noticed a loud beeping inside the unit. We figured it was one of the fire detectors. We called management bc as stated in the contract tampering with fire alarms is cause for large fines and a cancellation of stay. Someone finally showed up at 10 the next morning after a horrible first night sleep due to the loud beeping.
Also that next morning we awoke to sugar ants all over the kitchen sink area. Evidently the guest prior is used the blender and there was leftover juice. The ants where all over that area. Probably 70 or 80 of then. We just tied it in a plastic bag and stuck it out on the porch bc we did not want to wait longer for housekeeping.
When we came back from the beach for lunch that day we decided to eat on the sun-deck. After making our food we brought it up to the deck area to find it littered with old cigarette butts and a dirty ash tray. Just gross.
A small comaint is the lack of tv in the kids sleep area.
And our last complaint is the lack of outdoor furniture. The only furniture was a table and upright chairs. The other condos we have rented all had deck chairs you could lay in. With this one having a sun deck I assumed they would have these amenities as well. And this particular comaint is not against compass as they don't control what the owners do and don't provide
Overall we still had a nice vacation although it started out pretty ruff. We definitely will not be renting from this owner again. We will most likely use compass again bc they have provided good service in years past. Had this been our first experience with them, they would not gre return business. Hope you find the review helpful

This was a great condo for my whole family of 5. We stayed on the bayside by the lazy river and pool so the kids especially loved that! It is a good walk to the beach on the bayside but definately worth it! The house was very clean, great updated decor. It was great not having to check in somewhere, just showing up to get into the house with a code and easy checkout. We enjoyed all of the resort. My kids had plenty to do the whole week we were there! The private beach area for us was crowded but the public beach access was a block up so that was also nice!

For the price we paid I would have expected something a little nicer - especially since this is a "penthouse" suite I expected nicer kitchen, bathroom, flat screen TV, WiFi, and better patio furniture on the roof top deck. There was little to no water pressure - hard to wash the salt water out of your hair. The hot water wasn't very hot either! 2 of the kitchen glasses has huge chips in the lip so I was afraid to drink out of them. The bunk bed mattresses were a joke - no way could an older child or teen sleep comfortably on them. We called with a maintenance request and they didn't respond so we had to call again the following day. The long runner got soaked from water leaking under the door as a result of a Tropical Storm and I called to have them remove the runner before it started to smell...by the time they came (after the 2nd call) the entire unit smelled like mildew! Also, when they arrived to pick up the runner they made my husband roll it up and carry it outside - isn't that maintenance job? The view from the patio was incredible. The location of the unit is perfect as you can walk to the beach and the Boardwalk very easily. The king bed was comfortable however as an allergy sufferer I would have preferred polyfiber pillows instead of down. Everything we needed was present in the kitchen and we made use of the extra towels provided.
Nice well maintained resort

Never received checkin instructions from Compass. This made getting into the room a chore, but once we got that worked out everything was good. Major items in the room were all in good working order and well decorated. Minor nits were a broken ironing board(would not collapse) and a missing handle on a drawer.
It was a great place to stay

This was a great place to stay only a few things I would have to say on the negative side the bunk mattress was really uncomfortable and the internet did not work besides this the condo was great. The views from the balcony and rooftop were unbelievable and I loved not having to keep up with a key and only using the keypad to access the condo.
Not too bad

We have stayed at Destin West in years past but this was our first time to rent using Compass. The reservation process was easy we did it at the last minute and had no problems. The unit, while nice, was not as nice as we had experienced in the past with units at Destin West managed by other companies. The unit was a bit rugged, with scuffed paint on the walls, a huge tv perched precariously on a shelf in the living room, sparse decoration, etc. The kitchen utensils and equipemnt were sparse and made preparing meals a bit of a challenge. The complex overall conitinues to be nice, although it is beginning to show it's age a bit. The pools and decks were clean and the lanscaping is still nice, access to the beach is easy. The biggest difficulty with the management was with getting parking permits. When we arrived in our unit, a basket was on the counter with a welcoming placard telling us about the need to use swimming pool bracelets and parking permits. While the bracelets were in the basket, there were no parking permits. We contacted Compass and were told that, although the parking policy wasn't really being enforced this time of year, they would get some to us but that didn't happen. A couple of days later a notice was placed on the windshield of our vehicle informing as that we were not in compliance with the parking policies of the complex and that our vehicle was in danger of being towed. This was on a Saturday evening. In a panic, we called Compass' emergency contact number and left a message. We did not get a response from them until the next morning. This just added a little stress to what should be a stress free vacation. Meanwhile we were able to obtain a permit from one of the complex employees (but not from the front desk, they told us that we would have to contact Compass). Overall our stay was nice and

We decided to add a few extra days to our vacation this year and called Compass Resorts to get into Destin West. Compass Resorts is by far the easiest Resort Management Company that we have ever worked with. They are always so helpful! We had a wonderful time at Destin West. Our kids love the different water features available. The rooms are always well equipped with everything you need. It was just a perfect experience. Thank you!
tons of amenities and then some...

stayed on the bay side. what a treat to have a lazy river right in front of our unit. the pools were awesome. don't think we tried them all. what a variety to pick from:) the convenient walk across bridge to the Gulf side was also an added plus.

Check in time was at 4:00 and we arrived a little early. Our room was not ready so we went and toured the place. The weather was terrible, a thunder storm was passing through. When we went to our room at 4:30 it was still not ready so we had to stand outside in the pouring down rain with thunder and lighting with all our lugage. Our room was not ready until 5:00. When our room was finally ready, we check to make sure we had what we needed. We were missing a parking permit and we had no braclets to get into the pool area. I called them right away to bring them and they said they would. We did not recieve them until 4:00 the next afternoon. Other than that experience, we realy had a good time.

I love Ft. Walton Beach and always have since a child and have visited nearly every year. Compass Resorts is a nice company to rent from I have been very pleased. I do wish I had been able to cancel this time because my daughter was very sick and we could only look outside, but outside was beautiful like always.
Absolutely perfect layout for a one bedroom condo!!!

The condo was beautiful. I stayed with friends but would rent this unit again for just my immediate family. It was beautifully decorated and well stocked with all the necessities. Thanks so much for making my stay enjoyable!!!
We absolutely loved the condo and resort!

Everything was right there for us to enjoy. We had several pools to choose from, the lazy river and the beach. Walking distance on the beach to food, fun and entertainment. My husband and I really loved it our first beach experience with our 2 year old little girl, his brother, 10 year old niece, and Mother. It was the best experience by far. We will be back soon. We actually extended our stay by 2 extra nights will there so a total of 7 nights, and would have stayed longer if would have been available. Thanks Compass!
It was so beautiful and relaxing.

We had a wonderful time. Destin West Resort is such a georgeous place. We had the most beautiful view at the Pelican penthouse 6,clear view of the ocean. The lazy river is amazing. This is the best place to stay if you don't want to spend alot of money,because it's walking distance to the beach several pools hot tubs the bay and a great gym. This was our second time at Destin West and I will be back!

We enjoyed our recent stay in Destin West Pelican PH06. We felt the amenities and service were really good. We loved the easy beach access, number of pools, lazy river, and location.
We did feel the unit needed to be updated slightly . We felt fresh paint and removal of carpeting to replace with tile would have made this unit seem so much cleaner/more to our liking.
Any time we had questions/concerns we felt customer service was very friendly and courteous. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.
Failed to meet expectations
Left on 07/09/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Doug
This condo has great potential. It has a great view, it is located in a very nice property with excellent staff. That's what makes the problems that I had so frustrating. The balcony furniture was badly rusted, breaking, had only two out of 4 cushions that were rust stained with cigerette burns and there was no furniture on the upper deck (according to the agent, I wasn't the first to make these complaints). So I had a GREAT view with no place to sit and enjoy it. During my stay I killed 2 roaches and noticed that the cleaning service doesn't clean under the couch. Early in the week, I contacted compass about the balcony furniture, the representive was helpful and told me she would contact the owner about addressing my issue. She never got back to me regarding the results of the call. At the end of the week, there was a mix up with compass on the length of my stay. Now, part of it was my fault for not fully reading the contract, but in my defense, my circumstances surrounding my booking were so memorable that I am not sure how the mistake could have been made. However, compass did do the right thing in response to issues I had with one of thier clients during my booking. So, at least I know they are trying. At the end of the day, I am undecided on how if I would recommend this condo or compass. The changes are so easy, I can't imagine this would continue for long. Compass' mistakes were frustrating, but I can't say that they didn't come the right conclusion in the end.

13 Year Old Birthday Weekend
Left on 06/05/2009 for a stay in May 2009 | LA Girls
I brought my 13 year old daughter, three of her friends and her younger sister for a long weekend at the beach. The condo was perfect for us, 2 in the master, 2 in bunk beds and 2 in the pull-out sofa. Having the code key lock was wonderful. We didn't have to worry who had the key. It is a little stretch of the legs to the beach, but the pedestrian walkway over Hwy 98 was terrific. I didn't have to worry about anyone trying to cross the street. The pool and lazy river were such a great piece of lagniappe to the stay. It was like going to a water park but it was included in your price. The girls loved sitting on the roof and talking and watching the beautiful sunsets (and sunrises.) Thanks for a wonderful stay.
Nice View - Family type of place.
