Stayed here with 3 families at the beginning of August 2014. We all had a great time and here are my thoughts.
3 star resort all the way. The condos are all owned by individuals and that makes each one unique. Some are updated and some are not. The 3 we had on the top floor of the A building, water front were all very small. They are basically one bedroom inefficiencies with one bathroom. Some can sleep up to 6 but with one, small bathroom, that would be really tough and tight. I would say they were maybe 600 square feet in total. We had one, A-323, that had single bunk bed in the room with the queen bed. So, no privacy. The other 2 units, had double bunks in the hallway and so the small master was private. They were A 324 and A 327. The best part about these units was the full ocean view. I am not sure we would pay the premium for that next time, as the partial ocean view is really just as nice and much more affordable. One of the best parts about this resort is that you don't have to book Saturday to Saturday as well.
The one thing that really bothered us was all the noise from the hallways. The windows in our unit were not double pained and hence we could everyone in the hallways and on the boardwalks.
They have 4 restaurants onsite and Coconuts has a great Happy Hour once a week, Karaoke once a week and other entertainment. The food was hit or miss for our group. Chicken fingers were cheap, nachos varied from one place to the next. Calamari was excellent, as were the jalapeno poppers. Drinks were all great!
The pool is nice and large, but lacks any ambiance. Would be nice to have music at the pool and some greenery or something to make it stand out.
You can rent bikes on site for $12 a day or cheaper for longer rentals. That was a great perk!
The beach is wonderful! Nice, soft flat sand. When the tide is out you have tons of beach to run and play on. It was never too crowded either. We did run into some jelly fish, so be careful.
So, in summary, nice 3 star resort with lots of 3 star amenities. Pack lite and I suggest only 4 to a room at most. Bring beach towels and a wagon to tote your items to the beach down the long boardwalks. Maybe a cooler with large wheels to save your back as well! We may be back to this resort if only for the shorter length of stay allowed.
