Stayed 5/22 thru 5/29/15. Second time I've stayed here, first time was on business - staying in the Library suite. Loved it!!! This time a family vacation and we rented a second floor time share unit with a loft. Everything was perfect - modern facilities, exceptionally clean and well appointed. Just bring yourself, and relax - everything is provided for... More

The resort is only 20 minutes from our house and we never new how nice it was and how much it had to offer. Beautiful grounds, nice pool, nice restaurant. Less than 1/2 hr from Casino. Staff was great. We will definitely be back for another 1 or 2 night getaway.

The hotel is located 5 min from the main highway I95. It's right on the beach and it also has a nice swimming pool with food and bar service. I would recommend their Sunday buffet bunch which has different stations and lot of different options to choose from. There's also a small island in front of the private beach where... More

I fell in love with this place based on the pictures of it on the website. When we arrived, I was so very disappointed. The views shown in the pictures are actually as beautiful as depicted, but can only be experienced as depicted when you are literally on the waters edge. (And I presume from the new condo unit that... More

Getting a towel is like being interrogated! Gymwas tired. Bikes had... More

One's 1st impression upon driving in and checking in is WOW, what a nice place. It's less so, after that. Upon finding the lone elevator servicing the two hotel room floors and the doors opened, it was clear that maintenance is NOT their top priority. We've seen nicer appointed service elevators than this primary elevator. The wall coverings and carpeted... More

Although we live in the area we inherited my inlaws time share at Water's Edge. For about 10 years we occasionally use it like a private club. Primarily the pool or the main dining room. Saturday night my adult son wanted to celebrate his birthday there. I used Open Table to make a reservation and mentioned we owned a timeshare.... More

I attended a birthday party luncheon in a private room served by the catering staff. Except for table set up for approximately 24 people which was slightly different than what was requested, all went quite smoothly. My friend loved the catering salesperson. The bartender and servers were very pleasant. Caesar salad was good. Steak was good (not great, and a... More

Great brunch selection. Food is well prepared and tasty! Definitely recommend if you're in the area. Make sure you make a reservation. Great for big groups. Best in the summer season. Big parking area.
