We are Marriott Vacation Club owners and purchased points based on this property. This was our 2nd year coming and it did not disappoint. We always travel the first week of June and this year stayed 6/1-6/8. We stayed on the 4th floor of the Conch building which is oceanfront and had a great view of the ocean in front of us as well as looking down the beach and towards the Marriott hotel pool next door (great people watching!).
The villas are spacious, especially the corner units. The washer and dryer were front loading which made doing mid week laundry a breeze. The bedrooms were nicely sized and the bathroom in the master was huge with a jacuzzi tub. We ate in for breakfast all days but one, ate lunch in, and cooked dinner multiple evenings. It was nice not having to leave property if we didn't want to.
There were plenty of activities if that is your thing but we did not do anything this trip. We happened to be traveling during Tropical Storm Andrea and the days that it rained the staff offered discounts on movie rentals, etc.
The pool area was nice and the kids took advantage of that during the evening; however, for us the main draw is the ocean. There is easy access to the beach and even cubbies to leave beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. if you didn't want to drag them up to your room.
The resort is close to attractions and the nearby grocery store, Lowes, had decent prices which was nice since it was so close by.
This is our favorite vacation spot and we look forward to it each year. I never hesitate to recommend it!
