This year we doubled down and got a 2 bedroom in Bridgewater unit 523. Fabulous view of the pool and the ocean with 2 balconies. Room had 3 flat screen TVs, newer furniture and was immaculate. I think we had requested a different unit initially but it is their policy NOT to hold specific units. That would be my only reservation going forward. We lucked out 2 years running with modern condos that weren't dated but spoke to others in Bridgewater who stayed in units that their respective owner's did not keep them up as well. I don't know how logistically feasible it would be for a resort of their size and scope to guarantee a certain condo upon receipt of a deposit but I certainly would consider that a value-added option. But on to the positive. The grounds are immaculate as always, the staff is unfailingly polite all around and the walk to the beach is a mere 5 minutes if that. The pool for our building was spectacular as well, complete with a Lazy River. There are other pools on the grounds that one can utilize by the way, but obviously the one attached was the one we frequented. They do keep very good tabs on who uses the pool and the beach - each person needed a wristband on their person or beach bag to gain access to the pool. That level of security doesn't work BOTH ways though, for as much as I could see if someone staying in a different building wanted to use the Bridgewater pool they could just come the "back way" from a further down point on the beach virtually unnoticed. The growing crowds in the pool in the evening and night with a bit more rowdy bunch - people we did NOT see anywhere during the day - led me to this speculation but I could be wrong; it was just a gut feeling.
There is a grocery store LITERALLY across the street and some AMAZING restaurants close by, albeit some a bit hidden and/or not quite matching where the GPS SAID they were.
The Housekeeping sadly was merely adequate - it was outstanding last year. Coffee "rings" from under mugs on the kitchen countertop were not wiped down and I noticed pancake batter that had dripped on the stovetop was not cleaned up either. Minor complaints yes but for the money I expect a premium hotel-level housekeeping service daily.
Upon re-reading my review it looks a bit nit-picky but these are minor things. I can't imagine staying at any other place on the property, mainly because we like the ocean view so much. I would not hesitate going back but if I encounter a circumstance where the condo is dated or run down (keep in mind there's no price difference among condos of similar square footage) I would not hesitate to try to get switched out.
