My wife and I (who live in Tasmania, Australia) visited this resort in November 2012. It has a great location - right on the Broadwalk and the the beach. It is one of the best locations we have stayed at, and would regularly revisit if it was closer to home.
We both enjoy walking so the Broadwalk was perfect - and there were enough things close by so that we didn't need to hire a car.
This is an observation rather than criticism - its not a resort like we would normally consider a resort. There wasn't a lot of facilities other than a small pool - but we quite happy to just do our walks and spend time by the water.
There are lots of good restaurants not too far away on the Broadwalk - and our favourite was Florios, which was about a 10 minute walk away. Just a great spot to sit, eat and watch the world go by. Also liked Le Tub - great burgers.
We went to Fort Lauderdale on the water taxi one day, which we enjoyed. It was quite a full day though, and we only got to spend a couple of hours there. But the journey itself was worth it, particularly coming back at sunset.
And we used the Trolly a couple of times - and enjoyed our visit to the Anne Kolb Centre.
We didn't have a lot of interaction with staff, but everyone seemed friendly, and happy to help.
The only real downside to the resort is the lack of a lift. We were on the 3rd floor, and reasonably fit - so taking the stairs each day wasn't an issue. But it was a bit awkward with our large suitcases.
But we really enjoyed our visit here - the location is perfect.
