Really nice unit but could use a few updates to furniture.

  • 4 of 5

Great location and view. Well stocked kitchen with ample utensils, plates and glasses to accommodate 10 guests. Liked the tables and chairs on the balcony but it would be nice to add a chaise lounge or two. Overall, some furniture in the unit seemed a little well worn. For instance the seat cushions on the living room furniture was worn/soft and provided little support. The bed in the master was an issue as well. Admittedly it can be difficult to please everyone because of the different preferences in mattress firmness, but we found the one in the master bedroom to be particularly uncomfortable and never got used to it. Also the bed in the guest bedroom with the shared bath squeaked with the slightest movement.

Still, we enjoyed our stay very much !

Absolutely wonderful!

Bella Riva 205 was a great place for 10 family members, 6 adults and 4 children ages 9-17, to stay. The condo, beach and resort was wonderful! We will be back!

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Bella Riva and as always, the condos here are lovely. This particular condo had foam mattresses in the master and one other bedroom. Therefore this was possibly the best bed we've had yet out of the 3 condos we've stayed in. It also had a bunk room which was great fun for the children. We enjoyed having a large dining room table inside and a circular table outside. There were ample towels, dinnerware and cooking items. The beach here is never too busy and the view is beautiful. We will definitely be back again.

Bella Riva is beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful well maintained and equipped unit. The bedding was very comfortable. It suited our family of 10 well. I can't say enough good things about the staff of Compass Resorts! They were very attentive to any issues and very pleasant to work with. The only reason I did not give this property 5 stars was parking. They only allow 2 vehicles per unit in this complex, which is an issue for 3 families with car seats. One vehicle had to be parked 2 blocks away which was very inconvenient. If you park in the lot without a pass they will tow your vehicle which happened to another family in a different unit. I would stay here again if they change the parking. In a 4 bedroom unit it really should come with 3 spaces. Apparently this is part of the HOA for Bella Riva and has no bearing on Compass Resorts. I will definitely use Compass again and really hope they change this, Bella Riva is a beautiful complex.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

From the first phone interaction with Compass Resorts, to our arrival, the stay, and departure, we have nothing but positive things to say. I recommend using the Compass Resorts app. It was extremely helpful, as were each and every employee I spoke with over the phone. More companies should be like Compass Resorts. The property is amazing. When we arrived, it was ready, clean and stocked. Things we particularly enjoyed were the Master suite with balcony overlooking the beach, all Viking kitchen appliances, gas grill, very secure atmosphere, and location. We would recommend this property to anyone and look forward to returning again.

Fantastic location, facilities, and atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! The condo was spacious and comfortable for our entire family. We loved the private location on Okaloosa Island. In addition to the privacy, we found ourselves conveniently close to excellent restaurants, family attractions, and Florida nightlife. The area has something for everyone! The condo itself has all the amenities of home including a fully stocked kitchen with Viking appliances and gas grill on the balcony. With this condo we didn't have to fight for a grill to use with all the other residents! What a bonus! The condo was in immaculate condition which makes a clean freak like me tremendously more comfortable staying here. The view from the second floor is perfect! You can't find a a better unobstructed view of the beaches anywhere else!
