We stayed here over the May long weekend. Although we did not have kids with us it seemed like a great place to bring the family. pool, playground, tennis courts etc. The beach access is a little steep and wouldn't be easy with your arms full of stuff - but it's doable. We were in unit 37 and it was... More

I spent several days here in April and had a wonderful time. I found the "apartment" I stayed in to be very comfortable with modern appliances and decor. The bathroom was almost like having my own spa with a jetted tub atop lit glass block! The skylights ensured that the rooms were bright and cheery during the day and the... More

VERY roomy, 3 of us in a one bedroom......full kitchen, WASHER AND DRYER in room, just all around great place to stay. Very quiet, nicely landscaped. Close to everything and lots of spacious parking. Would stay there again for sure.

Stayed here for 3 nights in August for a family reunion - it was wonderful. Grounds great, rooms awesome - so big and clean and had most everything we could need, fantastic staff - they even found my favourite sweater 2 months later and sent it back to me. The beach is spectacular, of course, and although a bit of... More

Honestly, the cleanest hotel I've ever experienced! I challenge you to go there and find a speck of dirt. I stayed there in mid November 2014, while on a trip alone to visit relatives in the area. I had a one bedroom apartment at the back of the complex. It was spotlessly clean, very quiet, and comfortable. Mine was a... More

Great amenities, within reach of everything in town yet pretty secluded, quiet and private. Very well maintained and one of the most beautiful ocean walks you can ever have when the tide is gone. A great place for couples!

While we have rented at this resort many times, this was our first try at a 3 bedroom unit. #54 was a terrific unit. It had obviously been renovated recently and they did a wonderful job. The unit was clean, modern and more than complete. It was more than large enough for the two families sharing the unit. (total 5... More

We stayed here for three nights in October in a 2 bedroom suite. It was great to have a full kitchen and washer/dryer. Great access to the beach. Each suite is individually owned so some are more currently renovated than others. We stayed in #32 which was clean and modern and close to the beach. We are already looking at... More

It was clean and modern. Quiet setting. I liked that it had washer and drier and included detergent for one wash. Price was good. Kitchen was well stocked. Only downside was communal bbqs require assistance of front desk and they go on break from 6pm to 7pm so I couldnt get the bbq working. It is not right on the... More

We stayed in a two bed room appartment twice and we loved it! Very well equipped, very clean and everything is just comfortable (bed, sofa etc). We used the common Barbecue area a lot and just had a fantastic time. We will return for sure!
