We are timeshare owners, but paid $150 as an exchange per night to stay at the CIBR during a few days of spring break. The resort is just a block from the beach, which is the best part about it. Parking is a little tight at times in the underground garage, but not too bad.
The units have been remodeled very nicely and were perfectly clean with an excellent kitchenette, and the landscaping and amenities (esp the adult hot tub) are very attractive and enjoyable. However, it seemed as if there were a herd of elephants staying above us, and the squealing and yelling of the kids was heard despite the fact that we were on the street side.
Norte, a very good Mexican restaurant, is located at the property, and many other eateries and shopping establishments are within easy walking distance. We particularly enjoyed Farenheit 451, the nearby bookstore, and Remi, a new wine bar in town with great live music.
The rental homes and units along the beach are lovely, and the beach is wide and sandy. It's not as wild and picturesque of course as Northern California beaches, but it's plenty lovely and we got lots of sunny afternoons when we were there for sun worshipping in the sand.
