Ok, first of all I stayed in a studio suite, room 508.
So, my review won't be the same as others, since some had larger suites.
My balcony also faced the (dog) park, and not overseeing the poolside.
But, yes, with view of the canal and ocean , too.
The studio rooms, would be ideally for singles or for couples, esspecially couples in love.
Or with a family with very small children, that you want close by. As only one room is available for all people (up to 4) to sleep.
I actually stayed there with my aunt, but after 2 nights, she couldn't handle the non-privacy of not having her own room. :(
The jacuzzi tub within the room, does come in handy, even though I only used it twice, but on a rainy day, is was the perfect thing to do.
Staying there, is like staying in a hotel. Yup, they even help you bringing up your bags.
Everything is provided in your room, coffee, paper towels, shampoo, even bubble bath.
To get to the beach, I always went via the sister property.
About a 3 to 4 min walk to thier pools, and beach.
Close to everything. Small grocery store, and Stingers Pizza and bar. Just a buliding away.
You need to go to Stingers bon a saturday night, Great street entertainment, music, and dance.
Thier pizzas are really good, too. Just don't order any with mushrooms.... it's like a can of mushrooms placed on top.
And thier daily specials ( I had meatloaf), once, are huge !!! And very affordable .
The beach and ocean itself is terrific. Never overcrowded, since it is private.
I stayed there most of the day, and at the sister resort a little.
But, once it gets windy or chills down, it always took me back to the Santa Barbara, for thier outdoor hot tub ! (and to get out of the wind - the bldg protects you from it).
Terrific are the large bathrooms they have on the pool area, complete with showers, too.
Free computer/internet use and print outs, in the Captains room (lobby area).
Don't stay in a studio, with someone else that wants more privacy, it won't work out good.
The common BBQ is used by the Tikibar during the day at times. So, you can't really use it, whenever you want.
Speaking if the Tikibar... hamburgers were selling for $5 plus something.
Your better off walking that 1 bldg over to Stingers....
The climate control in the rooms are noisy. I just turned it off at night. Really didn't need it.
The use of elevators is for me somewhat of a nuissence (but thats only me). I kinda just like to walk out an be there, type of guy. Or walk down or up a few steps.
It's like a highrise hotel, simple as that.
I did agree for a timeshare presentation. Don't think I'll ever do that again.
They tied me up from 9 am to 2pm. 5 whole hrs !
My compensation was $50 cash. But, not worth going thru it all. I wouldn't do it , again.
I have another timeshare at the Surfrider in Pompono Beach, even though it's much older,smaller and less modern, it had more atmosphere.
But, the location at Santa B, was great.... Everything within very short walking distance.
I have no problem going back there, looking forward to it.
Btw, I actually own this timeshare, and not being biased at all.
Feel free to e-mail me, for more info.
Besides, always willing to rent it, or trade it.
