We stayed in 205 Feb 9 - 14. These are individually owned condos. You may get one updated and nice OR old and and out dated. Unfortunately ours was not updated and the beds were the worst I have ever slept on. We had two bedrooms and all beds including the fold out couch were awful!!! House keeping needs to... More

This hotel is different from all the hotels I have ever stayed. The front desk guy that checked us in was very helpful and super friendly. The hotel office closes at 9PM. You have to check in before 9. Free parking and walking distance to restaurants and Bars.The beach was quiet. There was an area in the back that had... More

Thank you for taking time to comment on your recent stay with us. You are right -- a condominium stay is quite different from a traditional hotel, including services offered and amenities, but for those who want affordable spaciousness and room to spread out, condos have a lot to offer. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the comments... More

We spent a week in Unit B 213. Don't let the older appearance of the resort deter you, our unit was up-dated inside and, outside of a few items, in good condition. We had a great view of the inter-coastal from the sun room and enjoyed watching the birds, pelicans and even a few Dolphins from our room. It was... More

Last week my husband and I, along with our 4 adult children (early 20's) stayed in a 2 bedroom unit (E103). We had a family event to attend. The unit slept 6 which is fine, but with only 1 bathroom, but we did ok with that. All was fine with the exception of HOUSEKEEPING. The unit was extremely dusty and... More

This our second time staying at the resort and I have to say this time our condo was not nearly as clean and well taken care of as our first stay.

This was a great place to stay--very convenient to the beach the place was very clean and very quiet. The only thing to know is that the air conditioner does not go below 70 --so if you are used to it being cool and not humid--there is a slight problem. The management was awesome--we couldn't get the main tv to... More

First, be aware that this is not a hotel - these are condominiums. If you are not used to traveling like this then you probably won't agree with me. That said, we had a great week here and have already booked for next year at the same time. We booked through our travel club so our choice of rooms is... More
