The Wharf has everything that you could want without the "beach". However, there is a beach at the Lazy River which we love! Park your car and walk everywhere, or take the shuttle to the pool. They do frown upon you bringing your own alcohol and drinks to the pool area, unfortunately. Shops, restaurants, bars, entertainment, arcade...There's something for every... More

We drove in from Ohio, long drive but it was worth it. We had kids ranging from 2 to 18 years old. The pool had everything to offer these kids, the wave pool was great even for the 2 year old. The staff at the pool bar were terrible I mean terrible! They Didn't want to be there it appeared.... More

It's a beautiful place to stay but there are a lot of downsides. If you want to go to the pool, you have a long wait to ride a golf cart unless you want to hike it. The swimming area is nice, but the guy at the gate seemed to be a jerk. Long story short, not worth the money.

Took 3 trys to get emailed terms of condo rental. Place was full of kids so can be noisy at times all condos have balconies with bar-b-que. They have cancelation fees, change fees and once they bill full amount no refunds. I used a card I had not used in over a year. After they final billed me the same... More

Room was amazing with beautiful views of the waterway on the backside. Rooms are located in the middle of a shopping/dining/entertainment district called The Wharf. Which is cute, albeit rather noisy at night. The Wharf has a "nighttime spectacular" 3 nights a week which can be heard from inside your room. It's not super loud, but noticeable. Area also has...

Although the view out the back over the Intracoastal is spectacular, our unit was directly at the end of Main Street, which had noise and music night and day. If you go, be sure to get a condo either with a low number or a high number. Numbers that end with 10-18 are in the middle of the building. In... More

All the advertisements we saw gives you the idea that there is tons to do. But there is nothing really appealing about this area. The light show is ok but nothing special. It was a waste of time. The arcade is overpriced and has very limited games so when several people were there you had to wait for games. Don't... More

Nice room. Customer service was awful!!! Check in was at 3. They kept saying room was not available. Didn't get in room until after 4. Called to see if something could be done and the only response was would you like a dirty room. Would not even let us speak to supervisor. This place sucks!! Do not rent!!

Staying here was amazing. We stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for better customer service. The condo was beautiful and everyone we encountered was very polite! Ask for Joan when you call. She helped us so much and even made us a welcome basket for after our wedding out of her own pocket!! Will definitely be... More

So far costumer service has been unbelievably bad. Very Rude over the phone. Nobody ever in office. Bad service in most of the attractions nearby also. FYI no hair dryers in room, bring your own. Room is nice though. Clean. Only into one day of our vacation. So hopefully it will get better.
