“not great, but decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2008

Understand that this is a condo, and every unit is decorated differently. The pictures on this site show a 2 bedroom unit. We just stayed in a 1-bedroom unit (7J) which looked very different (except for the kitchen). So be sure you get pictures and descriptions of your specific unit before booking.

We booked through dreamdestinationsllc.com, which quoted a 1-br at $130/night. But after they added tax, $100 cleaning charge and $125 condo association charge, it was $230/night.

Ocean Place consists of 2 buiildings, one directly facing the ocean (across from a street and park), and the other buiilding (the one we were in) is behind the first. We had a decent ocean view, partially obstructed by the first building, but it was OK.

The swimming pool is located at the first building, and the hot tub is at the 2nd. I used the hot tub, which was clean and worked well.

Our unit was furnished reasonably well, and we did save good money by making our own breakfasts - could have saved a ton of money if we wanted to make our own dinners, as restaurants are all pricey down there. There is a small but well-stocked little market just next door - very convenient.

I agree with the other poster that the location is great. And for a family of 4, you do save good money staying in a condo over a hotel, although you have to be your own concierge.

  • Liked — location, kitchen, lots of room
