We stayed in unit 410A. I was very happy with the unit itself.... modern decor, very light and uncluttered, hard floors, not dated looking like some of the other units., and great location. The balconies on all of the units are huge. From the balcony in this unit you can see both the pool area and the beach which was very nice. The grounds and pool area is beautiful and has something for everyone. The toddler splash pool and play area was awesome. My kid was in heaven.
The things I was not happy with was one, the cleanliness of the unit. I picked a unit with hard floors because I hate carpet, and hard floors feel cleaner. The floor had crumbs and hairs on it when we arrived so I took a paper towel to it and it was black after a few swipes. There were crumbs all over the chairs and under the kitchen table, and remnants of food smeared on top of the table and chairs. Nobody had even swept or vacuumed under it. There were hairs and a dead bug in the sheets in the other bedrooms but the bunk beds were perhaps the dirtiest area. Hairs and a thick layer of dust surround the frame and ledge. Sand, hairs and food jam-packed between the mattress and frames. Disgusted, I pulled back the covers and found more sand, hair and crumbs *inside* the bed. I wonder if the sheets were even changed. This is where my kid was gonna sleep? Gross. We spent the first hour and a half of our vacation cleaning. I was very irritated that I paid a cleaning fee. Housekeeping needs a lot of work.
The beach service, as other guests have stated, is nice but unless you are down there by 8:45am dont expect to get a decent chair, or any chair for that matter. The chairs have very little space between them (maybe a foot) so getting stuck next to the guy who has his radio on or two chatty females puts a damper on a nice relaxing day. The chairs are two rows deep and simply not enough of them to accomodate the number of guests at the resort. The beach itself, however, is beautiful. The sand was white and soft and the waters clear. There is a very wide area of beach here so if you cant get chair service there is plenty of room for your own chairs.
There is a fudpuckers shack on the pool grounds which was convenient for drinks. This is a small gripe but I wished there had been healthier options for snacks. I know most people prefer the food they served like nachos, hotdogs, etc...but one healthier non meat option, just one, would have been nice. I overheard people remarking on this too. That would not prevent me from coming back, however. The drinks were yummy and made strong.
No wi-fi is was also an inconvenience. I had to obtain a cable from the front desk and was only able to use my laptop while sitting at the kitchen table.
Overall we had a decent time but I am unsure if I would come here again.
