Bottom Line

It is organized like a little town that can be broken down into four resorts and 30 separate neighborhoods -- each with different decor and price range. Depending on the size of their group and budget, guests can choose between a standard hotel room, condo, villa, or town home. In addition to a village and market full of shops, restaurants, and entertainment, this resort is brimming with recreational activities: a 98-slip marina, 15 tennis courts, 19 pools, four golf courses, and over seven miles of beachfront.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

The 2,400-acre property is located in Miramar Beach

Miramar Beach (not to be confused with Miramar City in South Florida) is one of 15 beach neighborhoods in South Walton County, an area that encompasses about 26 miles of Gulf of Mexico shoreline.

Located on a peninsula that separates the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin -- a 15-minute drive from Miramar Beach -- is a Florida Panhandle city that draws over four million visitors each year. It’s known as “the world’s luckiest fishing village", and like many of the other beach towns that sit along the Gulf, its sugar-white sands are a popular tourist attraction.

  • 37-minute drive to Northwest Florida Regional Airport
  • 15-minute walk to Silver Sands Designer Outlet Center
  • 6-minute drive to Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis Resort
  • 11-minute drive to Destin Commons Mall
  • 15-minute drive to Big Kahuna’s Amusement Park
  • 16-minute drive to Zoo Gallery
  • 18-minute drive to Destin
  • 22-minute drive to Grayton Beach
  • 24-minute drive to Seaside
  • 50-minute drive Panama City Beach
