My wife and I just returned from a post Thanksgiving weekend. The unit we had was great. This is not really a hotel but rental condos that aren't occupied. Ours was very nice. The building is on a quiet beach access and has a nice pool/hot tub outside. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. The only downside is that there is no restaurant or bar but even though it's on the quiet East End, you're only minutes away from the action by car. We actually enjoyed making our own breakfast in the room and enjoying a peaceful get away. One area of improvement could be the fitness center. It was rather small and not well equipped. I can't say that all the units are as good but the pictures of the available rooms were pretty true and ours was well represented by the picture on line.
