Comfortable units with 2 bedrooms, both with TVs. Living room with TV. Great when traveling/vacationing with families, it gives all a chance to retire to room for a little "down" time to ones self. Master bedroom has full bath, nice but huge shower is wasted space when you wish you could soak in a tub (the unit has another full bath with tub in hall but that is where everyone would come and go- soaking time would be limited). Pool is small and needs some minor fix-ups but is adequate. Has hot tub/jacuzzi. There are 3 buildings one is way back off a driveway type road, the other two run parallel with one end facing the ocean. There is perhaps only one room with "ocean view" from inside the room, that would be upstairs on the very end of the longest unit. Others offer limited view of ocean from balcony. People there seemed very pleasant. Grounds nice and neat. Interior furnishings a little "tired" but very functional. This is not a "high end" modern place but a more comfortable, homey type place. People that worked there seemed very pleasant. NOW, the only drawback - the unit had TONS of the little sugar or ghost ants common to Florida. They dont bite but are a real pain in the rear. I have lived in Florida since 1993 and have fought them tooth and claw in several locations. You can never truly get rid of them for good as new nests develop and find you (and your food) but you can keep them at bay with a good exterminator. When exterminator not available and you are under attack Terro Baits you get at Home Depot or other hardware type stores helps tremendously. You put these out, let the ants swarm all over it, they take it back to the nest, the nest dies, usually within 2 days they are all gone. So, we came in late. Put non fridge groceries on the counter and went to bed. Next morning, 40% of what we left on counter (over 40.00) had to be thrown away - COVERED IN ANTS. So, I went to the office, very pleasant lady says they cant spray inside but could have maintenance spray outside (big help the ants are INSIDE). They apparently have never heard of Terro and when asked said they didnt have any. We had to go buy our own insecticide to control THEIR BUG PROBLEM. We did see 2 baby roaches in master bath but no more. Liked the resort, very convenient for us as we have friends who live nearby, and for grandkids to go to Orlando but not to have to stay in that crowded atmosphere. We will try to go next year but will know to bring our own bug stuff or not put anything out until sure unit doesnt have ants. My husband and I loved the Sleep Number bed in the master bedroom. He likes a hard bed and I like a soft - we were both very happy sleeping.
