The good: very large, well-appointed condo with spacious well-equipped kitchen, open floor plan, tons of seating. The decor was quite dated late 80s-early 90s) but everything was in immaculate conditon. The entire place appeared thoroughly cleaned. The property was clean and well-maintained. The front desk was friendly and efficient.
The bad: the unit was located almost the furthest point from beach access, which is already a good walk. A major renovation is underway that the resort, but this unit had not been touched save for one flat-panel TV in the living room (the bedroom ahd a massive old TV) and a new range (never used it). The sheets were thin and very scratchy and almost unsleepable. The management expected you to do quite a bit of the cleaning after your stay (oh REALLY?). Strip beds, wash dishes, empty trash, etc.
We agree if we had children we would have rated this property MUCH higher. The famlies with kids all seemed to be having a great time. And why not? You've got a beautiful beach (once you get there) 4 pools, playgrounds, game room, etc etc etc. TONS for families to do without ever leaving the resort. Food Lion, the top local supermarket, is right across the street, making it easy to eat your meals in.
For an older couple like us, the downs were a bit more noticable. Still, we got a great deal on the place, at $99/night. For that price, you really can't go wrong.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Known as the Crystal Coast, it's the kind of place that remains in your memory throughout the year as a peaceful vacation oasis.

Once you've soaked in the sun and splashed in the sea, wash the salt and sand away and head into the surrounding communities for delightfully fresh local seafood. Whether you like to swim, bask in the sun, sail or fish, Atlantic Beach is the perfect spot for a family trip, a romantic escape, or a beach bum's ideal vacation. ... more less
