This place is all that the pictures show it will be. Very nice condos. Very spacious.
Things to know that were the only draw backs:
No TV's in bedrooms. Only 1 in living room. With a large group including kids (and video games) a little tough.
Kitchen all though well equipt with stove, oven and huge refrigerator had very little to assist in the kitchen. Not many pots and pans, no hot pads, etc. No soap for washing dishes, no trash bags, coffee filters. My experience has been that in other places, they don't leave plentiful amounts of these things but that they come daily to replenish and that wasn't the case here.
We visited in a cold month so perhaps if it were warmer, we would have been outside and none of this would have mattered.
The pool is NOT heated so it was icy cold. They do have an jacuzzi as advertised but it is an above ground one and it was not hot. They turned it on upon request. The beach is very close but is VERY filthy. Trash, trash and more trash. I've actually never seen a beach with more trash. Bring water shoes too because there is a lot of glass in the sand. Again, maybe this is better maintained in busier months.
Last time I visited, I stayed at the Sanddollar Condotel and the beach there was much nicer and very clean.
The beds were extremely compfortable. Slept well. HVAC seemed to work well although we only used the heat.
Overall, the place itself is gorgeous and has luxurous appliances and beds. The outside ammenities fell short I must say.
Oh, one more thing... there is an awesome clubhouse downstairs. We didn't use it because our condo was huge but they have one of those old pianos that you put the paper roll in and pump with your feet to make the music play. Can't remember what they're called but what fun that was.
If you go, drive south about 45 minutes, you can go to the hot springs. That was fun!
