Bottom Line

The massive Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village is a significant presence in the Destin skyline. It's perched above the shopping, dining, and entertainment destination HarborWalk Village, and offers great views of Destin Harbor. Spacious condos have balconies, full kitchens, and laundry facilities -- attracting families looking for space -- but decor can vary widely between units. Perks include a funky-shaped outdoor pool, well-equipped fitness center, and free Wi-Fi, but there is a mandatory resort fee and some guests complain of nightly noise from HarborWalk village.
