4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Have stayed in same unit in bldg k for three summer vacations now and love it! Outdoor pool is great. Indoor pool needs s facelift big time (cracks and black algae) but overall a great vacation destination. The new Security company (Blackhawk?) that just started in dec 2014 is great.

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

We stayed at APATB Aug 1-8. This was our first visit to Atlantic Beach and we will be returning next year to this condo. The condo was nice and clean and updated. The swimming pool with the water slide was a hit with our kids. Location couldn't be beat. My only complaint was they advertised a tiki hut by the... More

A family oriented resort with a lot of on site amenities including 9 hole putt-putt, outdoor ping pong, excellent tennis courts and a pool with inner tube slide. Easy beach access and walking distance to Ft. Macon. Ocean front condos with a great view of the beach.

Clean, typical beach condo...very nice pool. Clean outside grounds-nice ocean view. Not enough good restaurants in area...ones there were very high priced and not as fresh seafood as we had hoped for. Fort was great. Beach was very nice.

Thank you for taking time to review our Resort. If you decide to come and stay with us again please ask us about resturants in the area that have Carteret Catch which is fresh seafood that is caught right off our waters here in Atlantic Beach. I am glad that you enjoyed Fort Macon and our beach. Thank you again... More

We stayed in an older building that hasn't been renovated. It will be renovated in October. For our needs this was fine. Loved the pool and water slide. Easy access to the beach. Never heard any neighbors getting loud. Plenty of family activities to do on the grounds. Definitely a place we will come back to when we vacation at... More

I stayed here with my family including two little kids. The condos are nicely situated and we did not hear a lot of noise from the other condos. It has an awesome pool with a water slide and is very close to the beach. The condo had pretty much everything in it that you could need. The only minor bump... More

The one bedroom (sleeps 6) unit renovations are complete, and they look quite nice. Please see my earlier review for my general thoughts on the resort - here I want to focus on our recent stay. Not too much changed 'outside' the units, except the playground was removed and built up with pumps installed to avoid flooding. They will be... More

We did get a newly renovated unit and it was amazing. Much better than what I expected at the beach and definitely better than what some of the reviews suggest. Pool was great and the slide is a must. Beautiful grounds and beach area, especially if collecting shells. About 1 1/2 miles from Ft. Macon. The only downfall in the... More
