Our 4th time at Solara, in a 2 bedroom ocean front unit. You can find us on our balcony in the early morning waiting for the sun to rise, at breakfast lunch and dinner (if we eat in) or later in the day to enjoy gazing at the ocean. We simply cannot get enough of this place. The property is... More

I would label this as an above average resort. The room is not the nicest I've ever stayed in but better than most. The staff are all friendly and helpful, especially Sergio, Carlos, and Kramer. They offer a free 5 x 7 photo of your family anywhere on the premises which we took advantage of. We missed the fruit smoothies... More

Spending a week at this resort was quite a lovely experience! The staff members are extremely courteous and there is always a concierge more than willing to help you out with anything from finding dinner reservations to booking tickets to an event or tour. Parking is done by way of valet, and Bluegreen owners will receive a discounted daily rate.... More

I originally booked into a studio through timeshare exchange; a friend chose to join me for a couple days at the last minute so at check-in I asked if we could switch to a one bedroom or anything larger to have a little more space and sleep privacy. The Front Desk gave me a flat no without even looking; couldn't... More
