Came on a RCI exchange the 3rd week of January. Above average weather all week (75-83) and sunny all but one day. Absolutely beautiful.
Stayed in a 2BR/2BA suite on the 3rd floor. All units have an ocean view. Excellent view of the sunrise in the morning, pleasant sounds of the surf all day, and a nice breeze towards evening especially.
Unit was exceptionally clean. Staff was very accommodating, providing us 2 cribs and 2 high chairs for our 2 children (2 and 7 months). Suite was outfitted with everything that you could need for a short term stay, including dishes, dishwasher, stove, washer/dryer, and accessories for all appliances. TVs in 2 rooms, a DVD player in the living room.
Amenities were great as well. Pool was large, temperature was excellent. Spa was big enough, temperature was excellent. Did not use many of the other amenities. The exercise room could use some updated equipment, but I'm sure that it suffices in general for the typical residents.
Beach was just a short walk (1 minute) away, down a short path. Sand was very nice, many shells. You can see cruise ships departing all day long and even sometimes at night. My toddler liked watching them and would always shout "Big boat!".
Orlando is an hour away, but I only flew in/out. Much prefer the slower pace here to the craziness of Universal/Disney and Orlando is general. Lots of things to do in the surrounding region, if you're mobile, but most of them are 20-30 minutes away. We spent the majority of the time at the resort or on the beach. A Publix is within sight of the resort, and many, many restaurants and shops within walking or short driving distance.
Overall, great service by the staff, excellent accommodations and amenities, and you couldn't beat the weather. A great trip.
All rooms have an ocean view.
