We booked a Queen Double Studio Suite with pool view. I was pleasantly surprised you weren't just paying for a pool view, but also a deck with 2 chairs to relax in while taking in the action at the pool. Their is also an outdoor gas fire pit with comfortable circular seating. You have access to food and drinks (full bar) from the pool deck or inside. Don't forget to check on the specials for Happy Hour from 5-7 M-F. The beach access along the walk way is definitely worth the time. The live oaks are awesome. The beach is away from the houses and public access further down the way, so there is plenty of space to spread out. The room had plenty of space. There was a pull out sleeper sofa microwave and fridge (they intentionally set them warmer to save electricity, so make sure to turn it to a cooler setting when you check-in). The staff is fantastic!! Can't say enough about how helpful they were and the cleanliness of the facility. Didn't use the free transportation, but definitely an awesome perk!
The Driftwood beach at the other end of the island is a must see. You might want to look for alternatives for dinner with limited options available on the island. We saw a lot of people getting pizza and decided on Red Bug (very average). I would recommend going off the island to Southern Soul BBQ on St. Simon.
