VERY, very nice place! The property is extremely clean, upscale, with a lot of thought put into making your stay there comfortable.The amount of space was perfect for us and our two children. They loved having their own room (and bathroom) with their own tv and wii console. My favorite place was lounging in those decadent chairs on the huge balcony. Best place to have morning coffee! We were impressed by a few extras like having several current movies available to watch, charging stations beside each side of the bed, the convenience of the washer and dryer - which I didn't think we would use much, but we did! Do bring groceries. It's quite a drive to purchase the things you might really want. Also, if you have children with a lot of beach paraphernalia like we do, do NOT walk to the beach club! Just get in the car, park underneath the club and take the elevator up. Much easier when you have to take a lot with you. The owner is very friendly and accessible. All in all, I would say that at times we enjoyed the place so much, we almost had to remind ourselves we were there to hang out at the beach, not stay indoors!
Recommended for: Adventure seekers, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.
