“Condo #301”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The best part of this condo was the bedroom. The California King was very comfortable & the linens & pillows allowed us to get a good nights sleep. The kitchen was well stocked w/dishes, glasses, etc.The bathroom & decor needs updating but the living room furniture was comfy. I found the price to be a little on the high side for what we got though. The pool area & patio area were clean & a nice place to hang out. Being able to use these amenities as well as being right on the beach was great. The restaurant on the premises, Shuckers was a fun place to hang out and the service, food & entertainment were great. They require guests to use their keys to get into the living & pool area so that the general public that go to Shuckers don't have access to our amenities.

We stayed for spring break and the stay was very relaxing. We had unit 316 which was ""sunset view" basically parking lot side but still a nice view. We sat on the balcony and watched the sun to down nightly. The property is right on the ocean and the pool is right on the beach. It's a great set up because there is a restaurant right on site with beach side access. Has drinks, food, music, and always friendly people.
Units are individually owned and differ. Our unit had 2 double beds, and a fold out couch. Flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom. Stove, dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge. What else could you ask for.
A great place to relax on vacation. If you want to get a little wild there are local restaurants and bars with live music (one on site, others right up the road)

We will be back again!

Small property on a quiet beach. Each condo is individually owned, so they are decorated differently, and rentals are managed by office staff. You can book by the night rather than the week, which makes it a great place for a weekend getaway. Office staff were VERY helpful and knowledgeable about the condos. It is directly on the ocean. Some units are not oceanfront however, so if that is important to you ask the office. Plenty of free parking, nice pool and bbq area between the building and the beach. Our condo was 301 and was well equipped with everything we needed - full kitchen with plenty of kitchenware, even had a blender (and the all-important bottle openers and corkscrew). This helped us hold down costs and calories. The condo felt spacious, the bedroom was a full separate room. This particular unit has had the living room glassed in for a full-wall view of the ocean. There is an oceanfront balcony from the bedroom that we really enjoyed. Comfortable king bed. I like the color scheme of blue/brown.
The only things I would change is that we could occasionally smell smoke from someone smoking on another unit's balcony, and I would bring paper towels as there were none provided. They've had a lot of beach erosion this year and at high tide there is very little beach left - but it is still there!
It was lovely to take a morning's stroll on the beach. We rode our bikes on nearby trails which was a big plus for us - sidewalk to trail was seamless. The trail is about 20 miles long, goes along Ocean Drive.
We did eat at the attached restaurant Saturday night and enjoyed the meal. The restaurant is oceanfront as well and they have a dining patio/bar overlooking the beach.
Overall, we had a great weekend getaway at the Island Beach Resort and would definitely return again. Clean, comfortable, safe, and a good value.

They told me that Shuckers is the only restauarnt on the beach for 100 miles. people can walk right up to this neat beach bar and order everything from pizzas, burgers, grouper sandwiches to full meals. It is a happenin' place. You can watch the beach and water action. Inside dining is also offered.
Shuckers outdoor bar and dining remind me of many Caribbean spots, with music playing while you sip your frosty beer or tone sour right in yur bathing suit.
GREAT FUN!!!!!

Older property but clean and well maintained. Excellent views and great pool (never crowded) Shuckers Restaurant is attached to the bldg. so is very convenient and has good food. 3 of the 4 (plastic) chairs on our balcony were broken and were replaced within 2 days. Not so good - the living room furniture in 203 is extremely uncomfortable and the TV's are WAY out of date. We were looking forward to buying fresh local seafood and grilling by the beach, BUT the grills are CHARCOAL. We booked directly with the property and were charged an $88.00 booking fee which was somewhere in the fine print and not discussed at the time of booking. THAT was extremely annoying.

Well worth it's price. Right on the beach, lovely property and comfortable. Went with friends and family. Some rooms are better than others as they are individually owned. This was our second time here and when we arrived our first room had a problem with the air conditioning and they propmtly moved us to a room on the fourth floor sunset side, room 413 which was lovely. No complaints there. Hotel needs some updating but you can't beat the deal and location. Restaurant and tiki bar were very good. Priced reasonably. We will be back.

Room Tip: each are individually owned so all are different.

This was our third Stay in 307. We enjoyed our holiday very much. The apartment was clean and bright as on previous visits. Great views, well kept pool, reasonably priced quality restaurant, all mod cons, digital TV, icemaker. What else could you ask for?
