Beautiful beaches and breath taking sites from the Sea Dunes where we stayed. It was the little things that ticked me off. I did research on this stay and saw some negative comments, IE, construction etc but that didnt bother me. What did was the "stretching" of the truth about the little things. Internet for example. You would think at dang near $300 per nite you would get Wifi and not a cable to hook up to your laptop. For me, I was ok with it. But I had teenagers with me and 3 laptops and only one person could use the computer at a time. Plenty of Wifi in the air "but the owners will not let us use it" stated the front desk. No cell signal in the building. Had to go to the beach to use the phone. Again, heaven for me but misery for the teenagers. Their misery became my misery quickly. Brochure stated free beach chairs etc.....but NOT the chairs on the beach. ??? As for Room service...took over and hour to get a bag of ice. THAT was free though. Dont bring kids or plan on doing any Computer work and you will love this place IF you get the beach front condos. No construction that far down the beach. It could have been a bit cleaner and maintained more, IE paint etc. The blender in the kitchen was still 1/4 full of some nasty fruity drink from a previous visitor. When it was all said and done, when I got home, I was emailed the "what did you think" questionaire. Pretty much stated all of this....Not a peep did I hear back. Guess they were ok with it. Probably aint the first time they have been told such things. And NO, I would not go back.
