the resort was nice, but for a power wheelchair user it was difficult to access unless you have full upper body control. There are no automatic doors or even push pad access doors. you need to access all areas with a key card. There was a handicap lift for the indoor and outdoor pools that lower you as much as you want into the water. The game room was ground floor level was accessible as was the movie theater. We had a first floor condo unit. It was clean and well equipped with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One was handicap--however the shower was a very tight fit with a wooden bench seat that could lift up. It was just large enough for our son's shower chair. the sink was not wheelchair accessible. the toilet seat was ADA height and there were grab bars. Over all the bathroom was large enough to maneuver a wheelchair in. bedrooms large enough to get the wheelchair next to bed for transferring.
We had a kitchen in the unit that was well equipped. For some reason they do not provide housekeeping services for "short "stays???--(we stayed 5 nights)
There was no resort fee thank you very much, as it has become tiresome for all the resorts to charge a "fee" to use the property !! Free parking also
There is no food available at the resort, but there is free coffee and tea in the lobby every AM. It is an easy walk right across the street to the yacht club and Belle's cafe for Wonderful Breakfasts! Admire the huge million dollar yachts while you are there~~~you can also go right next door to the Marriot for breakfast.
The resort is next door to a nice pub the Celtica which is accessible for wheelchairs. the pub had great fries and burgers as well as a good lobsta roll. very nice selection of beers and cocktails and quiet place to avoid the noise and business of the other pubs
It is a breeze to walk to everything from the long wharf~~~end of the block is a baseball stadium, where you can catch a Gulls game, walk to Thames street and all the shops in the various "wharfs" where you can book a sailboat cruise. Plenty of shopping and eateries. The Marriot is right next door for the Ghost tour, Fathom's pub or an excellent Spa.
The staff was lovely and helpful, although the desk staff could have been better informed about the area.
