“Plain but Nice, Spacious, right on the Beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

This older 8 story building, built in the early 80s, has a georgeous location right on a nice uncrowded white sand beach. This is a family place; the rentals to spring break college kids are down the beach a ways, so this areas is quiet and family friendly. There are no fancy crown moldings or jacuzzi, and only a modest pool. However, there is a full kitchen; the dining, living and bedroom areas in our 2 bedroom are large; the balcony directly faces the beach and will easily seat a family; and the beds are comfortable. Only 3-4 units per floor, and no sound from our neighbors. A great location, with easy access to the entertainment areas straight down Beach Boulevard to the tourist traps and restaurants. Warm Gulf water to play in in April and the murmur of the waves to lull you to sleep at night!

Room Tip: I saw no bad rooms, although a higher floor could possibly get you a better view - our third floor v...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

This resort had many upsides: easy location to find, many restraunts within minutes of the resort, the apartments were very large (3 bedroom), all rooms had a balcony overlooking the gulf. The beaches in this area are beautiful white sugar sand. The beaches were not very crowded at this time of year, but the water was warm enough for wading.

The downside was the resort is showing a little age but the resort management is trying to correct this.

Room Tip: The higher level rooms have a better view of the beach. We were in room 62 (center room on the 6th...

BIG condo apartments! Low density complex. Everything is convenient and comfortable. LOVE the location right on the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms ending in "2" are 3-bedroom units!

Superb location and direct views of the beach and gulf are the strengths of this resort. Units are roomy with large kitchens and great views from master and living room. Two bedroom units have two baths and washer and dryer in the room. The private balcony is large. There is a nice pool and kiddie pool as well as BBQ area.
Unit is older with few amenities and friendly but basic service, but the location makes it a bargain.
If you love the beach and pool and views of the gulf for a reasonable price, this is the place for you. If you are looking for state of the art amenities and a shiney new facility, this may not be your best choice.
