This is a fabulous place to stay. The units are beautiful and the grounds are well maintained. Beach is outstanding and very private and for those who like a pool better it is well situated and has a lovely poolside restaurant /bar. This is our fifth year coming here and we will be back!

This resort is picture perfect for a wedding and ranks high on the The Knot. We had our daughters wedding April 5, 2014 on a perfect sunny 80 degree day. They handled the details perfectly and the wedding planner, Tori, was wonderful. The only dark spot was the food. We had ordered a substitute for the jasmine rice, a risotto... More

Third time staying at Casa Ybel in a two bedroom unit. Perfect location, right on the gulf. Price is a bit steep but you are paying for the location. Lot's of room for outdoor play. Pool side restaurant a great convenience. Love having a tennis pro available for lessons/clinics. Really miss the courtside water fountain and loss of the sign... More

We'd never been to Casa Ybel, having strictly chosen it from researching on the Web, and what a treat! The property is well located, the grounds beautifully maintained, a nice pool/hot tub area and convenient access to the beach. The buildings and rooms are kept up nicely; we didn't observe any defects in our room at all. Our room was... More

We've come here Spring break since our kids were babies...now teens. Perfect spot on ocean with huge pool, kiddie pool, poolside bar/restaurant, shuffleboard, beach volleyball, tennis, basketball, beach chair/umbrella set up's for rent, kids club, daily activities. Pool is busy...filled with kids but not crazy wild. Good fun. Units we stay in are timeshare rentals..beautiful, coatal themed and updated regularly.... More

We spent a long weekend here in a beachfront two bedroom condo...room 179. The baths were small and poorly appointed although equipped with plenty of towels. The king size bed was too soft for us. We paid $575 a night for in essence a $200 a night room with no cleaning service. The beach was pretty much walkout from our... More

Beautiful property, nice little bar. Wonderful calamari! Drinks a bit overpriced. Nice waitstaff. Great for a quick pick me up drink and appetizers if you are walking the beach and want to stop it. We would return.

This is one of my favorite resorts. I had not been here for ten years -- we returned for a long weekend trip this month. Nothing had changed. The resort is beautiful -- right on the beach. Because the beach curves, we could see both the sunrise and the sunset from the beach -- a plus for photographers (see attached)... More

We had a very small wedding, followed by a lovely dinner at Casa Ybel. We were thrilled with the level of service we received. Tori was super helpful and flexible with the planning. Jeremy was our waiter at dinner and he went above and beyond our expectations. The setting was gorgeous, the food delicious. The wedding packages and vendor lists... More
