Guest Reviews

Our favorite condo in Destin! 5 stars!!!!

  5 of 5 stars

I love this unit for many reasons. Being an end unit the views are fabulous and you don't even have to use the elevators, the beach is just a few steps away, the unit is beautifully decorated and comfortable. When you are away from home for 10 days and don't miss your own bed, that says a lot! Thank you, Newman-Dailey for outstanding customer service!

It was our pleasure to have you as our guests! Glad you were able to enjoy all the the wonderful perks of Crystal Sands 217. We hope to welcome you again and again!

Great for our needs

  5 of 5 stars

Crystal Sands unit 217 was better than we expected. The unit is very clean and the decor is newer beach appropriate. The kitchen is very well supplied. It seems to be newly renovated. The location was perfect for us. So close to shopping and right on the beach. The view is phenomenal.The beach amenities are so appreciated. There was a bit of a moldy smell, but not overwhelming. It may be just beach moisture. The bed is comfy. Thank you for a great stay.

Can't wait to return!

My granddaughter, niece and myself had an absolutely wonderful time. The unit was ready ahead of time and since it was raining when we arrived, it was great for us to be able to get in ahead of time and settle in. The unit worked well for us though I do think that if there would be more than 3-4 people you may find it crowded. We had a beautiful view of the gulf from our balcony and enjoyed having lunch on the balcony and sitting back and enjoying the view and listening to the waves in the evening. The one thing that I did find different about this complex from others was Thant the pool was in the front and the building blocked the sun. This may be okay for some, but for someone like myself who enjoys the sun, this may be a drawback.

TV in living room needs replaced. Color off and cannot be corrected. Everything that is supposed to be green is red. Peoples lips are blue. Cheap Vizeo TV. Otherwise love the unit and had a great week.

Thank you for leaving your review and letting us know about the TV. We investigated and found out that the cable box was actually faulty and we had it replaced. The TV is working perfectly now. We are happy to know you had a great week and we hope you will stay with us once again!

Looking forward to next year!

This was our 3rd stay at CS217. Once again we really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and updated. We love this time of year mid November. Prices are down but the weather is still beautiful. We had no complaints. We will be back. we love Destin. Dan Stumpf

Great place to stay!

Loved the view! Great for a family of four. Only thing that we didn't realize when we booked was that the two bathrooms are toilet and sink only with a shared shower/ tub between the two (doors separating the toilet/sink rooms from the tub room). Not sure how we missed that.... but it wasn't a problem.

Ideal Vacation Destination

The location of the property is very ideal with good view of the sea and easy access to the beach . The place is well maintained and ideal for a small family vacation which feels like home away from a home . I plan to return back soon ...for a more exciting and relaxing time in Destin .

L'appartamento è spazioso e molto confortevole, arredato con buon gusto (anche se i letti non sono il massimo del comfort) e situato in una posizione ideale per muoversi nell'Atene turistica, a soli 20 metri dalla metro Monastiraki. Molto curati anche certi particolari necessari ad un soggiorno più lungo come, ad esempio, la presenza dei detersivi (oltre che delle istruzioni) per la lavatrice. Unico neo la TV rotta (a nostro giudizio già da un po' di tempo!)

This is a lovely villa, comfortable, roomy and well equipped,and with a lovely pool and garden. It is located in beautiful countryside about 4 miles from the coast. Ideal for a quiet relaxing holiday. Mario was brilliant. Not only was he a friendly and attentive host but he and friends came voluntarily to my rescue when I had an unfortunate incident with the hired car!

Crystal Sands 217 is fabulous!

  5 of 5 stars

Crystal Sands 217 is fabulous! This condo has it all and the view is amazing! My husband and I enjoyed our time in this perfectly appointed and very comfortable condo. We thought the bed was very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. We had no problems cooking in the well equipped kitchen. The location is great and we were within minutes to restaurants and shopping. The grounds are nicely kept. But, best of all is the view and the ability to have your toes in the sand in seconds. We will definitely be back and have found “our place”. Thank you Newman-Dailey Resort Properties for helping make our beach get-away perfect!!

Great Experience!

My husband and I took a week to unwind and relax and this was the perfect place. Place was exactly as the pictures. It was very clean and had everything you needed. Beautiful view and rental office was very nice.

Just what I wanted!

Crystal Sands 217a

  5 of 5 stars

Our family stayed in Crystal Sands condo 217a in June 2014. The unit was just as pictured; it was clean and comfortable and the views of the ocean from our balcony were breath-taking. The beach is literally steps away and we could not have asked for more. My husband especially enjoyed the convenience of the beach chairs and umbrella that were set up for our use each morning. We had an issue with the air conditioner on the third night. It stopped working when we were out to dinner and we came home to a hot condo. We were worried that since it was after hours we would not be able to get assistance. But the Newman-Daily folks were on it and had a repairman there in 30 minutes. The a/C was fixed in less than an hour! We were very satisfied with the condo and with the excellent service provided by Newman-Daily. My family will definitely be staying here next year!

Many returns...see you sept. 2014!

As always we had a great week at Crystal Sands... This was my seventh year to stay at 217... Love the end unit with extra window. My husband was in heaven playing golf. We both enjoyed days on the beach and evening setting on the balcony. As ever ...everything was clean, neat and enjoyablity quite. We also enjoyed the pool this year, its alway sparkling clean.We spent our honeymoon there and come back to celebrate this year and hope to come back many more celebrations.. Look forward to returniing next September and to crystal Sands our favorite.
