“Loved It, Loved It, Loved It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2006

LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT! I travel to this area a lot for business and recreation, and watched this resort (formerly the old, dumpy Sea Bird) be completely renovated. Now operated by ResortQuest, they took an old, too small for any party over one place and turned it into a great resort!

My family came along, so we stayed in the two bedroom. But even the studios looked spacious, as long as you don't mind the Murphy beds.

I loved the modern decor - even contacted the company to find out where they bought their throw rug at! And of course, my husband liked the flat screen TV's.

The pool sits on the Gulf of Mexico. This resort is right on the beach, which the kids liked. Will definitely return again, and again!
