Perdido Beach Resort, Orange Beach ALTuesday, December 20, 2005
Av and I stayed a couple of days last week at the Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach. We've stayed here a couple of times in the past. If we had been spending more than two days, we would have booked a condo at The Beach Club at Gulf Shores, which is just fabulous!
In the lobby at the Perdido Beach Resort, they have these great mosaics that are back-lit:
Since it's the Christmas season, they had their big tree up - pretty....
...they also had a small display of gingerbread houses:
This was our room, below:
It was okay, nothing spectacular, but of course it's at a great rate because this is the super-low season at the beach. The hotel is scheduled to be renovating the rooms later in January.
This is the pool area at night:
...and during the day. Pretty!
This is the view of the beach from our hotel room:
Overall, we had a nice stay. We had supper one night at Lambert's Cafe in Foley, a place we always go to whenever we're around Orange Beach/Gulf Shores. It's really fun!
The next day, we got up and had an early lunch at McGuire's in Pensacola (it's only about a 35-minute drive from our hotel) which was wonderful as always! We really wanted to play silly golf somewhere, but it just didn't work out with Av's schedule (I'm not even sure if they were open anyway). We did spend about an hour (but didn't buy anything!) at the outlet shops in Foley - they have a Coach store, Gail Pittman, J. Crew, Noritake, and tons of other shops.
