Grand view ON the Beach! Jun 05, 2011
This is a very popular hotel in Destin, Florida.
I have stayed here about 3 times. Each "complex" or "small apartment" is owned by someone. Crystal Villa's is a corporation that leases them out by week/s/month.
There are 2 buildings. Building A has the indoor swimming pool incooperated into it. We have opted for building B, guessing that MIGHT make it more noisy. But I don't know. But I can tell you building B is quiet!
We have stayed on the 2nd floor also due to a better view at the dolphins you can see EARLY in the mornings if you are lucky. But if you are on the bottom floor you can just walk right out onto the beach. The minus for that is small kids, like we had. We did NOT want them to walk right out. ha ha
So again, the 2nd floor was best.
The 3rd floor I am told is for larger groups, and has vaulted ceilings making for a loft.
A one bedroom can hold up to 6 people. It has a kingsize bed. 2 bunkbeds in the hallway, that is very cute for kids. And the sofa makes into a bed in the living room.
2 bathrooms which is nice. Spreads out the sand! LOL
These are "villas" as it says... so there is a kitchen with plates and utensils, stove, microwave, dishwasher, etc.
There is also a washer and dryer that comes in VERY handy when you are ON the beach with lots of sand. We were able to wash our beach towels and bathing suits each day. They supply bath towels , but not beach towels.
They do not provide maid service till the end of the week. There is a vaccuum cleaner and broom for you to use if you like in the mean time if too much sand comes in.
*For what they charge now, I believe maid service should be included!
Rooms are decorated very nicely. It is spotless when you walk in the door. Smells very clean, and not fishy, which is great when you are right on the beach! These villas give you plenty of space, a table and a bar to eat.... A couch, chairs, large TV, and DVD player.
We have returned to this location due to the great beach, clean and large villas, and nice families who stay next to you.
The water is normally warm and beautiful. But we have had days were seaweed and jellyfish have been a temporary problem. Being on the 2nd floor helps to see the water before you go in which is nice.
Crystal Villas supplies 2 chairs and an umbrella per room. So if you have more than 2 people you will want to get extra chairs if you like. The water stays shallow for quite a bit, so it is great for kids.
I have photos of my girls enjoying the beach right in front of the hotel. I also have a photo of them under the umbrella with the chairs. I am still looking for my pics with the rooms, it somehow got in a seperate envelope. Will attach soon. :^)
