Heavy storm flooded parking lots and cars on Thurs. Just by luck we looked out and saw that water was up to the rocker panels on our car. So my husband ran out to move it and ask a few employees where he should put it. No one was any help, so he just found some high ground. People were... More

We had horrible storms here and we apologize that the parking lots were flooded. There have been many staff members working very hard along with 12 pumps trying to... More

We have been coming for 30 years. I have a son that is 18 and I have a picture of me sitting in a chair holding him on the same burgandy carpet when he was 6 months old and it is still there. Just lots older dirtier and thread bare. The manitainence fee goes up and nothing is being done.... More

Ok. We love APAB but you must understand what u are getting into. We have a time share. We LOVE the pool! The kids go NUTS for it 930am to 930pm. The beach access is great.

We have been coming to A Place At The Beach for over 30 years as timeshare owners. The outside of the buildings looks great but is very deceiving as the insides are worn out. We just finished out week and in our unit the freezer did not work properly, drawers in kitchen were off track, dishwasher was broken and washer... More

We really appreciate you taking your time to write a review for our resort. There are plans in progress for the upgrades to start this fall for phase 1 of our timeshare units.

No carts for loading and unloading available. They have a space for ONE and the One has been missing for two days now. They will not go find it, replace it and when they tell you someone will be right there to help you they do not show up. Not recommended for Seniors, handicapped or Folks with Medical issues.

From what we have experienced, if you rent a unit that is owned by one person, who is using either VRBO or a management company like Atlantic Beach Realty to rent out their unit, you will find some very nice units! We stayed in 329 recently, and it is obvious these owners have updated some things. Plus, there is nothing... More

Let me get the minor negatives out of the way first. The ice maker in our 'fridge didn't work. The wifi was spotty. Gas grills were in a tough spot compared to our condo and complicated to work. Oh...and when the A/C would kick in, it was extremely loud and frequently woke us up during the night. That's all I... More

We are having a great time. The staff is excellent and the view is amazing. The unit is clean and the amenities are top notch. I am a picky person and after reading the reviews , I was skeptical but pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend this gem.

This place is really a dump. Carpet is filthy, threadbare, and shredding at the seams. They keep saying that all units are being renovated--and charging high annual assessments to do it to individual timeshare owners--but ours makes you feel like sleeping in your clothes. One shaky rusty cart for all condos in a huge building so you make numerous trips... More
