We love coming to the place at the beach. They had lots to do around and you didn't have to leave. There is of course the beach to lay out in the sun. There is mini golf for those who like to play. They have a playground for the little ones and a pool with a slide. We have enjoyed... More

Stayed for a long weekend July 14-17, 2016. Had room 136, which is billed as a 1 bedroom, however there is a small room with a trundle bed off the dining area, also a pull out couch, so 6 can sleep in a 1 bedroom. .The "other" bedroom has a pocket door so you can have some privacy. Kitchen is... More

Thank you for the positive review. ( I like what you did at the end) We are glad our beaches are so wide, as they protect us during those nasty storms and I would agree a sand buggy is a great help. But we are glad that you were able to enjoy your time here and hope that you come... More

Well maintained property. Nice options like indoor or out door pool, great beach access, free putt putt and other out door activities. Great for a family stay. We enjoyed the condo we stayed in. It had a great ocean view, clean and well stocked. I would recommend this location for a stay on Atlantic Beach.

A friend owns a condo here and lent it to us; we had a fantastic stay - easy boardwalk trail to the beach (private to residents), plus a nice outdoor pool with a slide for kids and lots of sitting areas. They do a great job keeping it clean, and the people were all very nice!

This complex is one of the few that has so much included with the price: large pool with very cool water slide, full court basketball, mini golf 9 hole course, ping pong, tennis, even shuffleboard and multiple corn hole spots. APATB staff is solid and seem to truly care about their quality of work. We rented through Atlantic Beach Realty.... More

We booked at this location with the hope of having a nice and relaxing vacation; this was absolutely NOT the case. First, we checked in, climbed three flights of stairs with luggage, only to come in to a complete mess of a room. We called the front desk and were told we had to remove all of the luggage and...

A place at the beach is one of our favorites for a crystal coast family vacation. They have a 150 foot waterslide into the outdoor pool. A 9 hole mini golf course for free was a nice touch as well. Lots to do on-site and on the BEACH! Close to lots of attractions, nice staff, security, etc.

The condo we rented was very nicely appointed, but a little on the small side. It was a one bedroom converted to two. This resulted in a true galley kitchen. That was the downside. On the upside, and there was a lot of that. This is a great place for a family vacation. The pool is large and well tended... More

Definitely a great place to take your family. Large outdoor pool that's made for kids but perfect for adults. The majority of the pool is 3ft but the pool has seating so you can sit in the water and watch kids have fun. Has not been over crowded which is a big plus for me. I can't promise I will... More

A very nice place clean and we'll maintained. Nice view of the ocean a short walkaway. The bathrooms were way too small and the waterclosets were child size. Shower curtain were ajusted so that the bath room folded when you took a shower.
