We have stayed here twice now and love it. Clean condos with friendly staff. We have only used the quiet pool which is perfect for us as our son is a teenager. It's convenient to restaurants and stores but quiet as it's not in the thick of the action. Picture is a view from our condo.

It had a complete kitchen which I love as an added feature. It had two bathrooms and a couch that let out into a...

We stayed 7 days in an enormous two bedroom condo, huge lanai, overlooking the tennis courts. The room looked exactly like the on-line photos. The quiet pool is tranquil, the main pool was jumping, happy hour is 3-6! Only bummer is there is no beach, and a golf course sits between the resort and the ocean. Location is away from...

Very good. We are a 2 bedroom condo with an ocean view. It is a distance from the water (across a golf course) but that only adds. Rooms a quiet, clean and up to date. Staff is very friendly and prompt. (had a slight problem with a fill valve on a toilet - calls and fixed within an hour). Very...

Nice amenities with a friendly staff. Several pools, concierge is friendly and helpful, Luau was fun as well. Drinks and food at the bar are a bit on the expensive side but overall is a good place to stay. Beautiful views.
