I would not return because the weather is too hot...91 deg F with 103 deg F heat index. For the beach even under a Chickee, it is too hot between 9:00pm and 6:00pm even for a beach walk. But the resort has nice rooms, good AC, great friendly service, best location in Palm Beach area, good happy hour drinks (2 Brown Lady's for $8), excellent pool, get 4th floor or higher for good view (1-3 floors are not good), cool white sand even in hot sun. The beach water is not good because it immediately drops off 1.5 feet where many lose their balance, and the water is cloudy...not clear at all even though the color green is nice, and when you walk about 6 feet out the bottom becomes very mushy like deep soft mud and bubbles float up and smell like sewer gas. Also you have to be at the beach around 5:45am to reserve a Chickee when a man with clipboard comes around to record your room number....some come out at 3:00 am to put their towels on the chairs to claim it and then come back out for man to record. There is plenty of visual action by all the water unit activities and all the beach walkers go past the Playa Linda since it is in the middle. Beds were very comfortable.
