We just returned from 7 nights at the Alamanda (3/21/13 - 3/28/13). This property is all about location as it is right off Orient Beach. We had a 2-bedroom unit, which included a small kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a deck overlooking the pool/ocean. This is by no means a 4 or 5 star property, but the extra space of our unit and the location made it well worth the price. We did rent a car, which was helpful when exploring the island. We also made a trip to the grocery store right up the road (via car) and that helped cut down on food/beverage costs. Our family of four enjoyed the included continental breakfast (rolls, toast, fresh fruit, juice and coffee). The friendliness of the entire staff was awesome – from the front desk to housekeeping. This property is in a gated community and we felt safe at all times. As far as the 1.5 mile of Orient Beach goes, it really is just steps away. Once you exit the beach side of the property, there is a service road/parking lot and then the awesome beach. We did encounter topless bathing on the beach and when we took our morning walks, there were other walkers w/o any clothes. We had no concerns with either. There is not a lot of night life in this area, but there is some beach bars AND great restaurants just a short walk. Feel free to message me with any questions.
