After a lot of research, we booked our 25th anniversary get-away at the islander resort. It was a wonderful experience, and we would love to go back. We had an ocean front suite in building 520. The suite was excellently arranged, with kitchen, table, sitting area, large bathroom, all kitchen appliances including dishwasher, as well as two flat screen tvs. Everything was clean, and decorated with extra special touches. The resort was quite, and our front door led directly to the beach. We could open the front window, or sit in the screened porch, and look directly at the ocean. The multiple pools with waterfall, and the hot tub were great. Also had poolside drink service. Many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. could watch the sunrise from our room, and go across the street to watch the sunset over the gulf, while having dinner. The pier on site is nice, but the beach is small. There are some watersports at the resort, and more just down the street. We had the most relaxing time, and hope to come back again sometime. Thanks Islander!
