We had a great time here. The tide comes up to the rock wall limiting beach time to low tides, but the kids had a wonderful time digging up conch shells, hunting sea stars and other tide pool life. The pool was clean (until the maintenance guys blew leaves into it, but the skimmers made quick work of them). There's a 2' deep pool for the little ones and 3 to 8' for the better swimmers, though the small one was much cooler in temperature. Also a small tree-shaded playground is available.
We rented a one bedroom. The sofa was a convertible. The room was clean. Books were provided and a dvd player was installed. There was a room being repaired overhead, but we hardly noticed the workers. Beach access is plentiful. Peace and quiet are a mainstay here. Nothing really negative to say. This was the 3rd time I've stayed with them. The kids did not want to leave when it came time. We didn't make use of room service as we prepared our own meals in the kitchenette. Check in/out went well. Actually booked the room just a week in advance as we had a surprise meeting in the area.
