We have stayed at the Bougainvillea for a week during our January 2014 vacation in Florida. We were looking for a place with a full kitchen as we prefer to cook ourselves – and it was a perfect fit. The property is located literally around the corner from the Boardwalk providing instant access to the beach. It is, however, very quiet, which we found great. The staff is very friendly and helpful and there is an awesome common area (a private, enclosed courtyard) with tables, umbrellas, long chairs and several BBQ grills – excellent place to stay during the hottest hours before hitting the beach. The unit itself (we had a one bedroom for the three of us) was clean, spacious and well-maintained. The only complaint would be a somewhat uncomfortable bed - (management said they offered mattress toppers for people who prefer the bed softer). The price was quite reasonable, too. We found Bougainvillea to be an excellent alternative to hotels and would definitely consider coming back!
