This is the 5th time we've been to this resort. We just learned that you can call the resort directly and request a specific room up to 21 days in advance. This year they added 3 large gas grills next to the gazebo that are in the shade for cooking. I recommend bringing your bikes or renting some for the week. The rentals were $30 for the week, but we had ours with us. Riding to South Beach (3mi) or over to Harbor Town (1mi) or just exploring the area was fun. We often rode on the beach in the early morning when it was less crowded and you could find "critters" on the beach. If you go out at low tide and wade out 40-50 yds into the ocean you'll find hundred of sand dollars. We found over 200 one day. Of course we returned then after filling up the bucket. Unless you're going to the local grocery store to refill on supplies (sun screen, beer, bread), there is no need to move the car the entire week. If you do drive anywhere at night, parking is very limited after about 9:30pm (ie: after the Greg Russell concert) so you'll have to park at the beach club next door and then move your car over in the morning. The golf courses are very nice. The old Sea Marsh Course was completely demolished and reconstructed/renamed to Heron Point by Pete Dye in 2007 (good reviews on the internet) and is much much better. Really nice layout. The Ocean Course has also has had a facelift but not nearly as extensive. Both courses have been completely aerated recently. They're right across the street so walking to them is about a 4-iron away. The kids loved this place for it's access to the beach and the 2 pools. We cooked out everyday wile they swam. I recommend having them do some of the arts and crafts (painting wine glasses, sand dollars, starfish, bingo, etc) that the resort offers. A good way to take a break from the sun in the middle of the day. There is a small fitness center on the property but is not necessary. All the miles of bike/running trails around the resort and beach activities make working out really easy. It's a quiet resort without all the restaurant amenities or other larger facilities, but that's what makes this place great. If you're a high maintenance person looking to be pampered and catered to, this is not the place for you. This place is great for quiet, relaxing, cheap family fun. I would recommend this place to anyone with a family of kids whose parents like cooking out and just taking it easy.
