We've stayed here twice now, but only because I failed to realize the second time that we'd stayed here before--major blunder on my part. We're Interval members and the first time we booked through them, but this time we booked independently through the individual unit owner. It's an OK resort, but there are a number of things about the place that make it difficult to recommend.
We usually choose a one-bedroom unit because there are only two of us, and it generally works out fine. But the one-bedroom units at this resort are EXTREMELY small, and the kitchens should really be called "kitchenettes" because there is hardly any counter space and the refrigerator is very small. I don't expect a full-size, gourmet kitchen in a vacation rental, but this was small to the point where it was hard to function, even to prepare the very simple meals we make while we're on vacation.
It also makes a difference where your "oceanfront" unit is. We had oceanfront units both times, but the second time we were in a section of the building that is recessed so that our unit was directly over the swimming pools. This shouldn't have been a noise problem because we were on the top (sixth) floor, but the resort has bingo and other games every day at the pools, and the person who runs the games uses a megaphone. So there you are on your vacation, trying to relax, and all you can hear every few seconds is "B10 . . . N35 . . . I17," and on and on--you get the picture. It's very annoying.
You should also be aware that, unlike many other resorts in the area, there is no underground parking here; and the parking lot is very small. Even in our Honda Civic, getting into and out of parking spaces was very tight--be careful!
Clearly, none of this is earth-shattering, but there are far nicer places to stay in the area for the same amount of money, and in the future we'll choose one of those.
