We loved our stay here. Heated pool was nice. Beach wasn't crowded but was close enough to "the action" so that a short drive could give you both. One morning we had swarms of sting rays right by the shore followed by a Manatee. Not sure we could have experienced that at a more crowded resort. We stayed at the beach front but a short walk got us to their location in the inlet and the fishing there was great. You could see rays jumping 3+ feet out of the water hunting right around dusk. Stay here and, if you have the urge to get in on more of the normal vacation action such as shopping, bars restaurants, all you have to do is take a short bus ride. Great way to have the best of both worlds.
