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!

We stayed with a large group and had a 3 bedroom townhouse directly beside the pool and playground (Unit 31). The unit was very clean, fragrance free, well stocked, and very modern. The beds and linens were comfortable, black-out curtains would have been very appreciated, and a/c would improve the experience, but we did get okay sleeps. Our location by... More

Our family was delighted with our condo. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and very clean. The bedrooms were spacious and well stocked with extra linens. We were here during a heat wave and, although there was no air conditioning they provided many fans to help cool the rooms down in the evening. The beach access path... More

Enjoyed our clean one bedroom condo. Had a comfortable bed and plenty of linen. Wished that each condo had their own BBQ and the wifi worked better. The private beach was very quiet and beautiful, it is a little bit of a hike up and down the bank to the ocean, not recommended for problems walking.

The Ocean Trails Resort was well appointed, only minutes from the beach, accessed by some steep stairs. The resort offers a swimming pool, a 5 minute walk to the mini golf with 2 courses (Lagoon Golf and Mountain Golf). If you only have time for one, I recommend Mountain Golf, if you get a hole in one on the last... More
