We were on the ground floor, had a patio area, and were close to the pool, the lobby for the included hot and cold continental breakfast, and just steps from the beach. There is an Outback Steakhouse on site, as well as an outdoor covered thatched gazebo bar. The pool was kept at a comfortable temperature for March 30 - April 2. There was also a hot tub under a covered thatched gazebo. The beach has hammock and chaise chairs. There is a pier that can be used for fishing in the Atlantic. A couple of manatee's visited my friend while she was wading in the water. : -) You can also rent scuba gear, kayaks, and some other items on-site.
We had a 2 bedroom suite. It has one in-suite bathroom and one that is not in-suite. Oddly, the bedroom with the in-suite bathroom was the smaller bedroom and bathroom, and contained no windows. I think that was my only complaint - no windows in our room. There is a kitchenette with a full size fridge, micro, stove and breakfast bar. There is a big living room, with a couch that makes a sleeper.
We were pleased with the room and the accommodations.
I would, however, suggest a rental car to get around if you are not driving there. There are not many cabs, and only a couple of cab companies. We would have to wait anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes to get a cab. If you just wanted to run to the grocery store for a couple of items, that was frustrating, time-consuming, and costly. They charge a pick-up rate, a per person rate, and a fare. It is island time, and one female driver didn't even wear shoes. Most drivers do not offer to help load and un-load your luggage or shopping bags for that matter.
