What is special about it
Although it may seem like a simple website at first glance, the Aquazul Playa website is a testament to the power and templating flexibility of the Catalog Extension, which is used in the 'condos' and 'attractions' sections.
The 'attractions' page is a more simplified master list of attractions which can be searched and filtered. The 'condos' section uses the same extension even though it has a completely different feel. Once a condo unit is selected, a detail page is displayed containing vitals details, a description, rates, an availability calendar, interior and exterior photos. The photo viewer makes use of Slideshow2. The exterior photos and rate information are stored in a separate calendar and tied to each record through the Catalog Related module.
The availability calendar is automatically generated from the company's booking software through a custom-developed module. Several times daily, the availability data is uploaded to the web server and parsed for each condo unit.
The overall experience for the website visitor is a well-organized interface to learn about each condo, view photos and make a reservation.
