Stayed here for a family reunion - we stayed in a two bedroom which was plenty big for 3 adults and one child. The view was spectacular - we were thrilled to see dolphins swim by. The sand is like sugar - and the uncrowded beach had virtually no seaweed - or rocks. Gentle waves and warm water.
Martha in the office was wonderful! Always offering us more towels or anything to make our stay more pleasurable.
Our issues were few: The Publix Supermarket was closed for renovation so the nearest supermarket was 20 minutes away(versus one mile away). We arrived at night around 8:30 and did not feel like running out for the few basic necessities. Having read other reviews about this property, I would have to agree about hearing everything your neighbor says in the adjoining room. We also found a few bugs - and one lizard in the condo. Not a huge deal for me, but the females I was staying with did not appreciate the unwelcome guests. I mean - it is Florida!
Overall - we LOVED The Beach. If you are looking for location, beach, warm water, great views and great service - stay here!
