Private rental home vs Resort?

Hi, my family and I are looking to stay somewhere but can't decide on private rental home vs resort...prices seem to be comparable. Would like any advice...if anyone has stayed at both would love to hear pros and cons of both! Thanks :)

We prefer renting condos. It is nice having the extra space. We use the kitchen even though we also go to restaurants (always for dinner). If for nothing else, keeping soft drinks and bottled water along with limited breakfast items in the refrigerator is handy. Sometimes we just make a light lunch to enjoy at the pool, rather than go out. For longer stays, I've used the wash machine and dryer. Two bathrooms, even if just the two of us, speeds up the getting ready for dinner process. Several times we have rented a condo for a month....then we have used the grill for a dinner or two.

At a resort you would have room service and many more people enjoying the pool.
