Beautiful room with jacuzzi tub, beautifully decorated and well maintained. Close to shopping, Tanger outlets, shows, concerts, dancing restaurants and more. There's also a private beach, indoor pool and whirlpool. Friendly and courteous staff. We'll definitely stay again.

We had timeshare points to use before year-end and my brother lives in the area. We thought a nice family visit over the holidays would be nice and if we did not have to stay with them, it might make things easier for them and we would be a little more comfortable and have some “vacation” time too. The resort... More

We requested a first floor unit which was honored. Our unit was very clean as was the golf course. Bar/Restaurant very good and reasonably priced. We arrived very early and hope to get into the unit but unable to because it was very busy which we understood. Later during the day while walking the property an employee stopped and asked... More

We had stayed here last year - in a Phase II unit. This time we were in Phase I - what a difference! We have trouble navigating stairs and the living section of the unit was on the second floor - a tough climb with luggage and coolers! That being said, the staff was friendly and generally helpful. The unit... More

The staff is super nice. The 2 bedroom unit is large except the bathroom are small. The unit are comfortable and there is a large number of activities. It is located near Hwy 17.

We achieved a very early check-in (after having driven all night from Virginia) and stayed in an entirely adequate single bedroom unit. Well appointed kitchen (for cooking) , living area, bedroom and bathroom, with friendly service and resort hotel people to help with any questions. Very strong WiFi throughout (I needed to work some of the time remote access). The... More

The resort and landscaping looked good on the outside, and renovated suites may be great. (I didn't see one.) Our one-bedroom was not what I expected or even comparable to timeshares we've exchanged in the past. Walkways were stained and dirty. So were the sofa and chair in the very small living area. The kitchen was fairly well stocked but... More

We stayed in a one bedroom and it was acceptable. The property is in serious need of updating, although it was clean and functional. The staff was friendly. The fitness area was subpar. Most of the equipment worked, but barely.

Our room was clean, but the carpet was stained, furniture was very worn, and the appliances were rusty. No dvd in the room. So we called the desk.
