I was very disappointed with this resort. I'm still wondering how it was rated as a gold resort. The kitchen cabinets were peeling, some of the furniture was dated. Ceiling fans had a cord from the fan that went across the ceiling to a hook and down the wall to an outlet.

Are they small pet friendly?
I do not think so, but suggest you check with the Resort Manager, Linda or her assistant Debbie...office number is 239-472-4162. A small dog? Probably not - a pet rock? Probably OK! Seriously, call Linda. Hope this info helps.

"Request a higher floor."
"Sorry, I can't provide a tip!"
"First floor has no views."
"End units have a great view of the bay, and third floor units tend to be quieter"
"Try to get 2nd or 3rd floor for a view of the ocean."
