This is not a luxury resort by any strech of the imagination. Actually, they use the term resort very losely.
Our one bedroom was adequate for two but cramped for four. The kids slept on the couch that open into a small bed. The kitchen looked new with good appliances and there is a small fridge and a small freezer. Plenty good for a week.
Do not expect daily cleaning of your room. You have to call them and make arrangements for $10 a cleaning. Amazingly, the reception is only open 9 to 5 (and closed on Sundays!) so we ended calling them for what we needed on our cell phone from the beaches!
They did provide very good beach towels which you can exchange for clean ones on Tuesdays and Thursdays so no need to bring your own.
The pool is a joke (unless you have toddlers) but with so many nice beaches around you should not spend any time there.
The rooms share a balcony (like some motels) so don't expect much privacy unless yours is at each end of the building.
The wi fi was good in our room and free of charge (a surprise since they charge for a lot of other things). We did not get much help from the office staff when we asked questions about the area. Actually the one in charge is quite unfriendly and rude. But again this is not your typical resort with a concierge service.
The best part of this place is the location which we found extremely practical. Not only you are right on Ocean Blvd across the beach but also at the intersection with Atlantic Ave where you have more restaurants, bars and shops than you can shake a stick at. Also, you have 2 excellent restaurants 100 yards down the street (Boston and Luna Rosa) in addition to a fast food joint. On the other hand, the street can be noisy late into the night so you'd better be tired when you come in at night.
We gave this place a 3 star rating based on the above however we don't know how much they charge as we came in on a timeshare exchange.
