Caribe resort in mid February


I am looking for a condo for my retired parents to stay for a couple of weeks in mid February. I would like to visit them while they are away and I have one child.

I am wondering if the Caribe Resort has heated outdoor pools so that we could use them in mid February.

Also, how is walking on the beach. Will it be mild enough to enjoy walking. How far is the beach from the Caribe?

How about playing tennis outdoors...are courts open?

In general, are there any retirees staying at this condo resort in the winter?

If so, what is your experience there?

It is freezing in the Northeast and it would be nice for my parents to escape it in mid February, if that is possible at the Caribe.

Thanks for your advice!

Caribe is very nice year round. They have indoor heated pools. I don't know about outside, the pools are so big that I doubt it would be efficient to heat them. I may be wrong though. Tennis, Bocce, and the putting green are open. The resort itself is on the bayside of Perdido Pass but the beach actually starts at the edge of Caribe and Cobalt and wraps around the Pass to the Gulf side. It is the preferred spot for many people because the surf in the pass is not as bad as the gulf and there aren't rip currents in the pass. There is ample parking at the resort, under the Pass bridge at Alabama Point beach access and across Beach Blvd for beach access as well. Yes, it will be mild enough for walks. I have stayed at Caribe many times and have never seen a bad unit. They have fast elevators, covered parking, you will get a private spot. The balconies are very nice also. I don't know about the retiree part. Retirees are scattered all over the island. Gulf Shores will be snowbird haven through April and they have regular meetings and gatherings at the local restaurants so I'm sure your parents will not be alone. The post office seems to be a popular gathering spot too. Not sure why, but it's always packed with snowbirds.
