I agree Crystal Shores has been difficult for me too. However, we did purchased a 4 day 3 night promotion from MVC for 399.00. Combined that with II getaway to Orlando when II had their last discount promotion. So we have 10 days in Fla. later this month. We are really looking forward to staying at CS. Requested a Golf Front View, not sure how likely that will happen. Anyone have any information on other views are they all water views? If we can't get Golf Front any suggest on best unit location.
Hi, we purchased the same promotion and are traveling in November. Very much looking forward to it! Was able to add two additional nights, one with destination points, and one paying cash.
We were told the view sold with the promotion is a "non-view" which would typically be a garden view at other properties, but at Crystal Shores the views are Gulf front, Gulf side, and Gulf view. I think you can see the water from almost all the rooms. There is one building closest to the water and those are all the gulf front units. The second building is behind that in a L shape, and the rooms closer to the water and higher floors are gulf side, the rest are gulf view.
So I would request the best view you can get, highest floor, and hope for the best! It's not peak season so that should help.
PS - I did want to ask the OP, can you rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach, and do you know the cost?
