Just back from a multigenerational family vacation -- grandma, kids and a few exhausted adults! While this was not bargain vacation, we found real value. Overall, the property is lovely and the convenience and accessibility for young kids and our elderly mom was worth the slightly higher price tag.
The entire Seapointe property is extremely well maintained and virtually spotless. There were several pools and hot tubs, ample lounge chairs, direct beach access in several areas, a beach front snack bar, playgrounds, beach volley ball, tennis courts and a beautiful, wide stretch of white beach. Grills and outdoor eating areas were located throughout the complex. I can see why people think of this more as a resort, and less like a condo rental.
Parking, beach/pool access and other amenities are closely monitored by staff, and appropriate beach tags or parking passes are required. Keys or a special code were needed to access each building and most of the complex amenities. And there are ALOT of rules -- no beach chairs or equipment in the units (stow them in the car), children under 15 need to be supervised not just at the pool and beach but everywhere on the property, no saving chairs, no smoking, etc.
We were quite happy with our 3-bedroom unit, which we rented directly from the owner rather than through Seapointe Realty, which controls most of the rentals. Bedrooms were a bit compact, but were roomy enough for the 8 of us. Living area was a good size, with a large balcony that added to the living space. Our 5th floor unit had a lovely sea view and easy elevator access. Despite the resort feel, this is a condo rental, not a hotel. So we brought our own linens, food, etc. The kitchen in our unit was large, had a full size washer/dryer in a separate laundry room, plus good storage space. It was nicely furnished and appointed with a few odd exceptions. We has plenty of martini, beer and even margarita glasses, but no plain old wine glasses. And there was plentiful seating in the living room, but no coffee table. Not huge problems, just a bit weird.
A find for us was the adjacent "Club at Diamond Beach", a private beach club on the stretch of sand next door the SeaPointe, with a full bar, lunch and dinner service and live entertainment on the weekends. We didn't expect a beachfront bar at our condo complex, but this place added to the 'resort' feel for our family. We are already trying to figure out how soon we can go back.
