The other reviews on here are a bit dated going back to 2008. Something must have changed since our stay was excellent and we didn't have any of the issues other reviewers mentioned. The units are managed by different groups and owned by different people so perhaps thats the difference? We stayed in Unit B4 and it was very tastefully done, clean and had all the amenities of a home away from home.
Poinsettia is located on 7 mile beach right next to the well known restaurant "The Wharf." Right off the beach in front of the condo is a wreck you can snorkel to and there's easy access to the water from multiple locations. We've seen amazing things right off the shore in front of the condo as good as anything you'd see at Governors Reef of Cemetery Reef.
The pool was great and felt like a bath tub after being in the ocean (ocean was 82 when we went). There's an outdoor shower and plenty of chairs and privacy. We were often the only people by the pool.
Each unit has a parking space assigned. If you have more than one car for some reason that can get tricky.
We ate out a lot as the island has a lot to offer in world class dining (and prices!) but we also balanced that with breakfasts and lunches at the condo and the full kitchen had everything we needed for that.
For diving we used Neptune's Divers (http://www.neptunesdivers.com). They'll pick you up right at the condo and bring you back. They're a great bunch, safety conscious but fun!
In full disclosure we were a guest of the owner.
