Anniversary trip

Great service, clean room and facilities and very short walk to the beach. We enjoyed the free beach cruiser rental to explore a ways in Destin. Dinner at the Primrose was second to none. Highly recommend the filet mignon and the grouper. Spa was amazing as well with lots of options.
