This place is a gem for both young and old. We arrived later that initially thought however this was no problem as the staff had made arrangements; a great help. The view is sensational, simply breath taking (picture shown from the beach located metres from the balcony). The staff were all really friendly and efficient. The interior (room 245: cant... More

Our family loves this place. Perfect access to the beach... Only steps away. The staff is friendly and the rooms have everything you need. We stayed twice this summer because once was just not enough!

We were a group of 8 and took two units downstairs - 214 and 216. The one bedroom units are ample for 4 people. The bedroom has 2 double beds and the living room has two sofas that can make into beds. The one bathroom for the unit was sufficient. The kitchen is fully stocked and you are steps away... More

This was our second annual stay and we plan to return. The best part of the place is that it is right on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and all rooms face the Gulf. Both one bedroom units we stayed in were very clean and well appointed with anything we needed (linens & kitchen tools). It is convenient to shopping... More

The room is decorated with shells and coastal scenes.Parking is just outside the door on the opposite side... More
