I almost passed this place over due to one horrible review on this site. But being practical, I figured if it really was bad there would be more than one low score. Thank goodness I booked here anyway. I loved it!
The setting was fantastic and the staff extremely friendly, helpful and not too pushy on the timeshare inquiries. All rooms are on the ocean front. We were on the 3rd floor with a double balcony and two sliders onto it. Full fridge was great, as there are great fish and meat markets in the area. The sound of the surf was loud and very welcome to New Englanders in December. We slept with both sliders wide open every night. Two nice ceiling fans as well. The dampness of the surf did come in with the wind and made the tile floors a little slippery when wearing sneakers, but no prob, we just went barefoot when inside. The place was absolutely SPOTLESS when we arrived, which more than made up for the older furniture and decor. The only thing I wish were different is that they remove the buoys across the middle of the pool so people could swim laps. The pool is fairly deep even at the lesser end, so little kids would use their own pool and not the full sized one. A very memorable week for us. We will want to go again for sure!
