Maravilla Resort
Ranked #44 of 55 Specialty Lodging in Destin
Reviewed August 16, 2005

We just got back from Destin and stayed at the Maravilla for the first time. I highly recommend these condos. We booked the Maravilla by recommendation from a friend after a cancellation from The Islander due to some damage sustained from Hurricane Dennis. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo. They offer 2-4 bedrooms condos also. We stayed in building 2 on the 3rd floor and the view was incredible. Buildings 2 and 3 only have partial(still a great view). A few mornings we were lucky to spot dolphins. The grounds sits on 33 acres with condos and vacation homes. There are 2 pools (one heated in cooler weather), jacuzzi, tennis courts, shuffle board, clubhouse with exercise room, BBQ grills and lots of grass area for kids to play in. The grounds are kept very clean. Its located close to shopping and restaurants. Pets are allowed per approval of the condo owner.

Our unit was newly decorated and very nice. It included a washer and dryer which was a plus(I believe most units would have this). I didn't have to get coins and go to a community laundry. The beds very comfortable and we were lucky to have a unit that had some condiments in it already! Simple things like salt and pepper.

The beach is a private beach and very close. Some of the condo units include the umbrella and chair rentals for the week. You can have your personal spot reserved for $5.00 per day and they will put your name on a index card and attach it to your umbrella. The service is up and ready by 830 every morning. They also have personal watercraft for rental.

We are definitely going back again and have already contacted the owner to reserve his 3 units for next year!

Maravilla in Destin Florida is a wonderful place to stay. Maravilla grounds are meticulously kept with condos and cottages for rent, many of them by the owner. Rates are very reasonable for the Destin area. We liked it because it is located on Scenic Gulf Drive along the beach in an area with not too much traffic and is uncongested. There are two pools, one heated seasonally, an exercise room, tennis courts, great parking, beautiful gulf views and a private beach for use only by Maravilla guests.
