"CROWN JEWEL EXCELLANT BARGAIN !!!!!!!!"
The staff was excellent from check in, during our stay and at check out. I called ahead and asked for a Gulf View room, and they did that. Breakfast was terrific everyday from omelets, sunnyside up, over ez, fried you name it, they make it + pancakes fresh made and hot off the griddle with the best bacon ever, crisp and perfect !
The evening reception was something we looked forward to, with ice cold pints of Amber Bock, and a very nice white zinfandel. Great savings,(if we went somewhere else for Happy Hour) Nice crowd also, a great time to meet other guests.
Great location also, CVS is right up the street, Busters Grill, KFC, Winn Dixie, 5 Brothers Burgers, beauty salon, a seafood market, wine store etc... We walked to all of these places, in 5 mins...and by car, if you catch the light right on 98 we were at the Sands Premium Outlets in 2 mins - 4 tops.
Come out of the Embassy and turn right and there's the Whale Tail, Pompano Joe's and the CrapTrap in about a 5 min drive (of course the speed limit is 30 mph) so it's really not that far !
The Beach is right there ! I paced it off exactly 180 yds from the front door to the sand, excellent and clean. Plus we hit the Surf Hut which is directly on the beach with excellent food and libations.
Over all.... you can't go wrong here, we feel. After 25 yrs of visiting Destin, for the value and convenience we'll be back to the Embassy on every trip in the future. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK !!
