The furnishings & carpet had been updated, but the fixtures and finishes rather dated. The staff was pleasant and helpful, the Sunday AM donuts & coffee had the BEST scrumptious long johns & donuts around!!! The large full-sized pool temp varied every day, and at different times, sometimes cool, sometimes warm; nice for lap swimming, 3ft - 6 ft. The huge hot-tub was always wonderfully warm, never very crowded. Beach was nice, but too cool for swimming, unless you have a wetsuit, and even then you don't want to be out much longer than half hour, about 55 - 60 degrees, calm waters for a few days, then high surf for several days, good for wind surfing. The unit was minimally stocked, with small toiletries and detergents. The coin-op laundry on 2nd floor was easy to access. Detergent sold in the office, limited hours open. A "trolley" bus ran up & down the coast to all the beach towns, very cheap way to get around. Lots of diners & shops north, in Clearwater Beach area and south of the resort. A few restaurants nearby too, plus a CVS that had lots of misc. things. Mini-golf at Smugglers Cove was fun, plus free 2nd person coupons through Feb. if you register on their web site. All in all, I would not go to this area in winter, just too cold to enjoy these beautiful beaches, the resort was a good value though with great beach & pools.
