We went in December, the water slide and out door pool is closed but did have a nice indoor pool and jacuzzi on the other side of building K. The weather was in the 70's so was nice to walk the beach but water is too cold to swim. The condo was nice and clean, nice dishware. Bring extra towels... More

We've been coming to this Resort for the past 12 years or so. For some years, I thought this place was on the decline and aging. However, it seems there is new management because the place has been upgraded. I was quite pleased with our visit. This time of year the place is quiet. Pool is closed, but the beach... More

We own unit 136 in the L building. Very nice for us and our dog. Our unit was very clean except for the windows. You can tell they did some painting to the unit and the windows and sliding glass door were covered it paint specks. The only thing I would recommend is to buy your own dish sponge and... More

Our family of four stayed in unit L-236 booked through VRBO. We loved the resort but would recommend a different unit. We had a rough start to our stay as the unit had not been cleaned when we arrived. There were also some minor issue with the unit that should be addressed. The front desk staff was very sympathetic to... More

A great relaxing family getaway at Atlantic Beach. APTB is a very nice compromise between a hotel and an expensive resort. Right on the ocean with private beach access. Nice updated outdoor activities. Great pool with a water slide and life guards. The 1.5 bedroom condos were completely renovated over the last year and the two bedroom units will start... More
