Why We Love This Hotel

  • Full renovation completed in 2020, this beachfront hotel has loads of activities like nightly music and dive-in movies

  • Directly across the street from restaurants, area attractions and water-sports rentals

Overview

Fresh off an $15-million renovation, The Island by Hotel RL is set on Fort Walton Beach. This seaside property is perfectly situated on the Emerald Coast where guests can soak in the rays near jewel-colored water with toes in the sugary sand.

In addition to the beach, for swimming options, there are two outdoor pools — both with easy access to the Island Grille where guests can grab a quick BBQ lunch. The grotto pool includes a swim-up bar surrounded by waterfalls, and ideal for a refreshing break from the summer sun, without leaving the pool. Be sure to check out the daily activities schedule, since it's packed with entertainment like dive-in movies, live music, pool parties and more.

The room options at the resort feature one king or two queen beds. Higher-end rooms offer a private balcony and you'll have views of the pool or the Gulf of Mexico.
