We stayed here through a timeshare exchange. We wanted to go to Florida over the very busy Easter week and this was the only property available in the entire state, other than Orlando. As others have noted, it is inland, so having a car is necessary and you will need to drive quite a bit. Having said that, it is right off the highway and easy to get pretty much any where interesting within 30 minutes.
We stayed in an A/B combo unit in Sandpiper 2 (they are 2 one bedrooms that combine to a 2 bedroom, so you have 2 kitchens and LRs which is sort of weird. The smaller unit - can't remember if it's A or B - is TINY so avoid getting that. It has only a partial kitchen so it's probably called a studio). The combo unit was quite big, but very dated and tired. Everything was clean and in working order, but all circa the 1980s, including the TV - which someone else noted in a review. So while the space was decent, it just felt a bit tired and old. The pools were quite nice as was the surrounding area - a great place to take a early morning or late afternoon run or walk! There are 3 publix within a 3 minute drive of the resort so lots of options to buy groceries.
I don't think we'd go here again, but in a pinch, if you want to get to Florida for some sunshine and nothing else is available, it's good enough.
