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

If you come to this resort, do not expect much in the way of luxury. This property was built over 30 years ago - and it shows! Odd layout to get to your condo - and the bedroom window faces into the hall in most units. Original fixtures and furnishings, threadbare and dingy rugs. I'm writing this to give people... More

It Is The Best Place By Far. My Family And I Have Been Staying Here Since I Was Born. So Many Great Memories Have Been Made Over The Years. If You're Luck You May Run Into The Same Families You Meet On Previous Vacations While Vacationing Here. Great Location. Amazing Staff. Amazing Kid Activities And Family Activities. A Family Place.
