We used to own a unit in that complex. The grounds are lovely. Just be sure to do the "stingray shuffle" in the water there. For some reason we always saw more stingrays in that area than in most other areas. There's a shopping center right across street w/ a Publix shopping center. Mote Marine Aquarium is close by (just head south) and your baby might enjoy looking at all the fish in the aquariums - it is a lot of fun for parents too! Right by the aquarium is a Salty Dog cafe casual seafood restaurant, open air. If it is still there, there was a great little pizza/Italian restaurant called Ciao. It's located in a strip shopping center north of the resort. Both are casual & fine w/ a baby. St. Armands Key is also near by and has tons of dining/shopping opportunities - including the Columbia restaurant which is a locally famous Spanish restaurant (the original one is in Ybor City). Hope this helps!
