My family of 4 vacationed here for 2 very expensive nights. We paid $305/night inclusive of tax for a 2-Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath very modern unit on the 1st floor. Upon our arrival the patio furniture was in the living room and the sliding glass doors had so much condensation from the A/C and humidity that you could not see the ocean.
PROS: The facilities were very modern which was nice and everything worked. The location is great because it is within walking distance from the grocery store, tons of restaurants and excursion kiosks. The beach is right in your backyard but it's not exactly a pretty beach. If you like to surf, they rent boards right on the beach.
CONS: Although we were there for only 3 days we did not see any housekeeping around the property during our stay. You can smell the trash or sewer right outside your door. Guest services are not very knowledgeable about different excursions that they offered. For example, we had several time descriptions when we inquired about rafting. The worst part was we didn't know exactly what our timing was until we were on the road for the excursion and by that time we really had no choice.
Despite the cons I would still recommend this property for families/large parties who want modern facilities.
