I was very excited to vacation at this resort. I had read trip advisor for months and read good stuff. I was so happy because it is only about 9 hours from home and seemed to be the perfect place to purchase a second time share. I have a Disney one that I exchanged to come here and am looking... More

First, the cleanliness of the room at checkin was poor, housekeeping seemed to only clean the middle not under or behind doors. We found candy and shirt labels on the floor and dirty rugs. The elevators were dirty and the walls were all scratched. The hallways smelled and since the hallways are not climate controlled, the smell was offensive. The... More

Very nice facility, great location - close to the ocean and great restaurants. The room was very comfortable and everything we needed was close by. We really enjoyed the upper floor and partial ocean view.

Thank you MR.Mitchell and staff for another great stay. We always feel safe here! As in the past rooms are clean bathroom large and a very nice equipped kitchen. This location is close to Rudee Inlet, so if you like to fish or water sports or even just unique dining this is the perfect spot!
