Baton Rouge`, Louisiana
May 14, 2003
The whole complex was beautifully landscaped and great care is taken to maintain the plantings. The complex also has multiple pools, tennis courts, and nearby Kiva Dunes for golfing.
The one drawback was lack of restaurants within such a large complex. There is one nice restaurant at Kiva Lodge, while another restaurant was closed when we visited and there was a "greasy spoon" restaurant that was recently torn down to make way for another pool. The nearby Beach Club Condo complex offers another restaurant. Nearby Gulf Shores has a mecca of restaurants. The nearest full grocery is approximately 15 miles away in Gulf Shores. I would certainly suggest stocking up on some food for those days you're just too tired to jump in the car and drive somewhere.
