My husband and I spent 3 days at this resort. First of all, the view we had was from the top floor facing the ocean so that was really idyllic. We were happy to find a place with direct beach access. The room was OK, nothing special -- housekeeping came regularly so no problem there like other reviewers. Sharing the porch in front of the room means you have no privacy and get to hear drunken conversations and inhale the cigarette smoke of others -- OK, so head to the beach then, right? Well, I don't know if it's a characteristic of this place or just the timing of when we were there, but this place has "regulars" who own timeshares and boy are they territorial. It was very awkward -- I felt like we were being scrutizined constantly (the beach area is small), and there was even some rude and hostile behavior by these "insiders." We tuned it out as best we could and enjoyed the ocean and having pina coladas next door at the historic Louie's Backyard which is directly through a door accessed from this resort. Overall, it could be a great place...without all the weird vibes going on.
