My family of 6 have stayed at this time share hotel 3 different times because it was free to us as a gift of a time share owner.
Location: wonderful. Step right outside and on to the beach
Conditions: average to below normal. Not the cleanest. I bring Lysol and spray everything down. No house keeping that I have seen. They require you to vacuum and run dishwasher before U check out. There is a laundry room u can use for free.
Rooms: separate bedrooms, tiny kitchens with fridge and convection oven, tiny DR/LR, updated rooms have 2 flat screen TVs. We have 4 boys under age of 13 and I think we have out grown one room unless we let kids have bedroom and we slept on pull out sofa. The windows open but no balconies but with recent child deaths that has never been a negative for us.
Dining: no room service, Mexican restaurant down stairs is decent. There are a ton of food options within walking distance.
Amenities : indoor swimming pool, tanning bed, and sauna. They do a towel exchange in the pool area. Take your used towels in and trade for clean ones. This didn't bother us. Check in has always been quick and easy.
Negative: we have always stayed for the Labor Day holiday. During one out of three stays we had someone access our room while my 2 year old was in room And I was in bath. The stranger had a key that worked!!! After complaining to staff they didn't seem to mind until the time share holder who gifted us the room called and yelled. After that they called twice to check on us but didn't offer us another room or new keys.
