Let me start by saying I booked online & put a deposit down with my credit card. Upon arriving I intended on paying the reminder in cash. Unfortunately they didn't have a drawer open so they insisted I pay with credit card. Since when did it become not okay to pay in cash in order to avoid fees? The resort... More

We stayed in room 523 and it had an amazing view of the coastline. The condo was nicely furnished and very clean when we arrived. The 2 beach chair and 1 umbrella set up was really awesome and were already set up by 8-9 every morning. The only con is that there is only 1 elevator and it is in... More

Easy, clean, great location, Scott has the chairs and umbrellas up early, and on and on. The room was not as up to par as the first room we stayed in. This time we were in 701.... More

We stayed in unit 106 last year and are returning again this summer. Being on the first floor was very convenient with small children -- we were able to walk right out the screened back porch to the pool and the board ramp leading to the beach. Clean, sugary sand and calm seas made for great trips to the beach,... More

Beautiful beach views and happy memories...Book your vacation directly through the main office after viewing all the units on the official website...You can't go wrong. The weather is gorgeous. All the rooms have stunning views and you are convenient to shopping and restaurants if you can tear yourself away from the beach and the relaxing atmosphere of Holiday Surf and... More

We, ve stayed at this property many times for the past 24 years. Condos are nice, clean, well decorated, right on the beach. We, ve always enjoyed it. Now policies have changed. You must pay half the bill when you make your reservation., the other half one month before you arrive. Pretty outrageous!! Other properties nearby don, t do this.... More

The beach was clean and plenty of room to relax. Pool is small, but adequate. Location is near the end of Holiday Isle and very quiet.... More
