We have stayed here several times.
The service has always been a plus. It's so easy to get in and out of. The property looks as if they hired a golf course groundskeeper to maintain it. Everything you need is within arms reach. The rooms may seem a little dated compared to some of the larger chains in the area,but there is no comparison. We told some friends about the place and now they are regulars.
They really know how to cater to tourists

Second time we have stayed at this motel resort. We only get a basic room but one with a waterfront view. Our stays have always been nice, quiet and economical. This last trip the pool had a mechanical problem and was unexpectedly closed. Hot tub was functioning though. A negative is the basic room like we had does not have a coffee pot and no coffee was available at the front desk. Suites/Villas have kitchens so I'm not sure why there are not pots in all rooms. This would be a great family place as it has on site things for young people to do and the beautiful beach is just across the nearby causeway bridge. +

After reading previous reviews, I called RCI an tried to change my timeshare to a different resort. The review before mine was really, really bad. My kids and I travel a lot. We have stayed in every type of accomodation from 5 star to slightly above a no-tel, motel, but for our summer vacation, I didnt want to have to in the admiral suite, one side is a king bed and bath adjoined to a living area with kitchen, full sized fridge, with let out queen size sofa, twin let out bed and bath. One review said the kitchen was too small to cook. I did cook in it. I fried fish and shrimp, I made jambalaya, I cooked breakfast every morning. They have several bbq grills on the property. The staff was helpful and most were friendly. I had a really good stay. We stayed for seven days. We had a wonderful time. I have learned that with my kids, I prefer a smaller resort. We will stay here again next year.
