The Atlantic Oceanside Suite made a lasting impression on us and we will likely come again. The check-in process was fast with friendly service and our room was ready with the air conditioning turned on for us (it was 91 degrees that day). Nice! The size of the suite was actually more than I expected, it was more like a one bedroom apartment with a distinct living room, bedroom and full-sized kitchen. Our first word was "wow"! This suite will allow 4-6 adults to stay comfortably. The kitchen is almost fully stocked with pots, dishes and every utensil we might need. I didn't see the wifi access advertised on their website, but I'm using it in the suite right now to type this. The best rates appear to be before Memorial Day and we got a great price compared to places we've stayed in the past.
The suites are located only an easy two block stroll from the beach. Numerous tax-free shopping outlets are less than 2 miles away or less, as well as most of the familiar chain restaurants and many local favorites.
There are a few areas that could be improved...we saw some cracked floor tiles, some of the paint is peeling, especially in the bathroom and we also saw a few ants in our unit. The outer courtyard and balcony need to be updated, there hasn't been much upkeep in these areas. This could mostly be because the winter season has just passed, but it appears that the grounds haven't had work in well over a year. The outward appearance will quickly turn away most potential visitors. To me these minor flaws make the place feel more like home and I have been comfortable during the entire stay (my house isn't perfect, either!)
If you can overlook the outside appearance you should stay, I'll likely come back.
