We recently used some expiring time-share points (again) for a weeks stay at the Beacon Isle hotel. It is a very well organised and popular time-share resort where regular visitors are greeted like long lost friends and many guests know each other from visiting the resort year after year at the same time.
We could not fault the resort in any way. Everything is excellently maintained and runs like a well oiled machine. It is essentially a hotel converted to a time share resort and although some of the units are larger, ours was a hotel room size. However everything you need is there and with the wonderful views the rooms are lovely. Despite the size we didn't feel claustrophobic at all. There is zero self catering but a small bar fridge enables one to keep a few essentials for nibbles (snacks and drinks) in the unit.
The restaurants, grounds, lounges and other facilities are extremely well run and maintained and I don't think there is anything you could wish for that you wouldn't find there. We are not people who take part in organised activities but these are all available and for singles or people who enjoy this type of activity this would be a real plus. No wonder so many regulars know one another.
The spectacular setting means that if you are looking for a wonderful holiday experience with a wonderful beach right on your doorstep you have hit the jackpot!
