Loved the resort and found Sandy and Jackie both very helpful (and patient)! The grounds staff did a fantastic job keeping the area neat and clean. Our unit (3H) looked over the pool area and had a slight view of the ocean (resort is across the road from ocean). The unit was roomy and clean.

We were visiting my parents, who had a split stay, so we had the first night a room on the second floor, and the next two nights were in a first floor room. Both rooms were generally the same in upkeep, maintenance, cleanliness, etc. All the rooms overlook the pool and towards the ocean. The first story enclosed patio exited... More

We enjoyed the fact that this resort is away from all the hustle and bustle of the center of town. You can easily get there if you want. The units are roomy, cheery, updated and have everything you might want. There is beach access right across from the resort. Very pleased with the resort and our room.

You have to cross Estero Blvd and then traverse through a little bit of shallow "lagoon" in order to access the actual Gulf beach. There is a private right of way for the resort occupants to do so from a site directly across from the property . Units are large (about 1,350 square feet) and every unit has its' own... More

Maynah, Thank you for your review. The resort is located across the street (we wish it was direct!). Very large units with the needed amenities from home make the stay easier. I do want to note that since this is a Timeshare style property yes that the units are individually owned and you can find units that are priced much... More

Very relaxing. The complex is located across the street from the Gulf, so it is only a short walk to the beautiful beaches. The property is kept up well. The pool was warm and refreshing! They have fun activities around the pool. The units have everything you need and are comfortable. My parents have been owners for 30 years, and... More

We booked two units for 2015. The pool is the heart of this resort. We have stayed here several times over the years, and always have fun getting to know other guests around the pool.

To be totally honest I was terrified about staying here after visiting it during our stay at best western last year... we had locked in plans for coming here with my wife's parents in February. The building was pink, out of the way and the rooms appeared to be outdated. Fast forward to 2/16 and the entire complex has been... More
