We stayed last Xmas 2004. I am not sure if the Tsunami had any effect, but the ocean water was sligthtly rough for about 3 days from Xmas day and it was in the high 60s to low 70s. After the weather cleared up during the 2nd half of the week, it was mid 70's.

We had a great time and did not dare complain considering what others went thru in Asia. We also stayed at Marriott Ocean Pointe. Marriott's first class standards were met for us for our stay. Pools are well heated (80s) and very well maintained. Great service.

On site Pizza Hut took about 1/2 hour to complete orders....so we always ordered 1/2 hr before actual time we wanted to eat....no problem there. Plenty of sightseeing to do by car or boat. Boat rides are about $15-$20 at Sailfish Marina. Bought some Dungeness crabs and lobsters at Costco and grilled them on site with some seasonings we packed along in a ziplock bag..delicious.

I also posted a review in tripadvisor when we came back in Jan 2005. Have a good time.

You might be warm or you might not. Or you could be warm for half the time and cold for the other half. It really is a crapshoot. It will definitely be warmer than where you're coming from, but Florida has unpredictable cold fronts during the winter. One day it might be 75 degrees and the next it could be in the 50s.
