We stayed here two times for a week each time. It is located right on the beach. Full kitchen with a Publix just down the road.

Wonderful sunsets. Hotel has been updated and is very nice.Bed is a little firm. They say the room we stayed in could accomodate 4 but it would be a wee bit cramped. Your not within walking distance to restaurants or shops. But overall it is a great place to stay and enjoy the beach.

I am staying in unit 224. The furnishings are of a rather cheap quality, but at least modern. For the price of 200 a night incl. tax, I am sleeping in a murphy bed. Had to move the chairs and table to open it. I don't know how two people of regular size (I am smaller than average) manage to... More

We checked out the other one bedrooms and there is no comparison! Unit 227 is so spacious compared to the others. The unit itself is beautiful! It is on the second... More

We stayed in a one bedroom unit. The unit was very clean and updated. The gulf front balcony was wonderful. The staff was great. The beach was uncrowded and very relaxing. We had a wonderful time!!

Stayed in this condo March 20, 2009 for a night with hubby without baby. This condo was the perfect place to stay. We stayed in condo unit 107. This unit is the last unit on the first floor. We stayed during springbreak. Amazingly, we did not experience any loud noise. I believe that the condo was totally booked that night.... More

The condo (more like hotel room) was okay. Much smaller than what the pictures made it appear online. We stayed in an upstairs room overlooking the ocean. It was a partial ocean view, mostly obstructed by the huge palm in the center of the backyard. The ads for the room said it could easily sleep four and was suited for... More
