Units are very nicely appointed. Great having a washer/dryer in unit. My third time staying here. Always in a back building with no view of beach. They save front building for owners or for renters. Wish they had worried less about the appearance and more about sound proofing the units. I asked for an end unit and explained that I... More

My husband and I have owned a week here ever since it was built so have been here many times, only trading occasionally to go elsewhere. Many other people on TA have described the units and the resort's amenities, which are many. There's much to like about this place. The entire staff here is first-rate, always friendly and very helpful.... More

Second time staying here at this resort, great for little kids. There is a daily activity in the morning where a story is read and then the kids work on a craft project. Playgrounds, heated pools, the beach - great place for family vacationing.

We've stayed here several times, and we always love it. This is a Marriott Vacation Club location, so the rooms are much larger and nicer than a typical hotel room. We've always stayed in 2 bedroom units, which have 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a large living room and a full (stocked) kitchen. Definitely meets up to Marriott's high standards.... More

The weather could not have been more perfect - 80's and sunny, nice breeze! Just right! Convenient to everything necessary and fun with no... More

time share by Marriott time shares. This is a beautiful timeshare resort and I believe that all units are two bedroom, two bath, with a full kitchen and a spacious balcony. The resort has all of the normal amenities including putting greens, bocce ball, shuffleboard, workout room, numerous gas grills for grilling, playground for kids, basketball court, sand volleyball court,...
