Given the hotel opened in 1998, the facilities have some age on them, but they are well maintained. Village Cottages are perfect for families, but larger groups also find the Gulf Front Condominiums to be accommodating
Gulf Front Condominiums
Each condominium unit is decorated differently, so while the floor plans may be similar, you'll find something unique about each one. In total, there are 656 units in the resort's four towers, ranging from one to five bedrooms. Both Avalon and Bristol are 20 stories high, with 187 units each. Catalina is 14 stories high with 128 units, and Doral is 16 stories high with 154 units. Of these, there are approximately 325 units in the resort's rental program.
Accommodations include a fully equipped kitchen, separate living area, balcony or patio, washer and dryer, bath and bed linens and a starter supply of household items, including paper towels, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. For those who want to stay in condos and have really young kids, consider a first-floor unit with a patio, or units on the second or third floors that have three foot-high walls along the balconies. Units on floors 4 and higher have balconies with traditional railings.
For more privacy, consider one of the resort's 20 rental cottages that reside near the resort's center. With two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom cottages, you're sure to find one that works for your family. Like the tower units, each cottage is individually decorated. They also come with different outside amenities, such as grills, hot tubs and pools. These units provide much more privacy than condos, with the added benefit of outdoor yards where kids can run around.
