We stayed here in late July 2013 with our kids. We stayed from a Monday until Friday.
The resort sits DIRECTLY on the beach with excellent beach access. The pool sits on the beach as well.
The rooms are VERY clean, well air-conditioned, and all rooms face the ocean. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite with a small kitchen and dining area. The kids slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room. They provided plenty of sheets and pillows for the sleeper as well.
~~Great location! Hotel sits on A1A (Ocean Blvd), about 1.5 miles from the boardwalk. There is a Publix and WInn Dixie grocery store just down the road, plus plenty of restaurants and gift shops near by as well.
~~ LOTS Of fun things to do at the resort! They offer a LOT of fun things to do every day for families, ranging from zumba in the pool, ice cream/sno cones on hot days (cost about $2), movie night on big screen at the pool (thurs nights), and many other fun things. They also have a game room for kids, as well as a library for books/videos. There are plenty of things to do so that you can just stay at the resort.
~~~ Fire pit and barbecue grills! They have grills you can use for cookouts (free), as well as a firepit each night to roast marshmallows/smores (1 free).
~~~ FREE Laundry! They provide free washing machines and dryers. They even give you a free box of detergent. They also provide free dishwashing powder, plus a welcome basket of snacks when you check in.
~~~Plenty of chairs, lounge chairs, umbrellas at pool, and even pool items/sand buckets for the beach
~~ NO Privacy if you share your room with kids! If you stay in the 1-bedroom unit, they A/C is in the master suite, and the rest of the unit is cooled by either keeping the bedroom door open, or opening the blinds that separates the bedroom from the living room.
~~ No maid service! The maids do come by on Wednesday mornings to exchange sheets and towels, but only if you leave the clothes basket in the hallway from 9am -noon. They do not enter your unit. On a plus though, they do NOT charge for maid service!
~~ Beds are stiff and not very comfortable!
We stayed at the resort using our Choice Priviledges points (16,000 per night), so we stayed for free for 5 nights. So, I really can't complain at all since we paid $0 for our stay. But even so, I would pay $100 per night for the room we stayed, especially with all of the amenities this resort offers over a normal hotel.
I would definitely stay here again! It is VERY VERY family-friendly, VERY clean, and the staff are EXTREMELY nice, courteous, and go out of their way to make your stay nice!
