“handicap access to units not available”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

while I agree with all the positive things others have said about this resort, I must warn that if climbing steps is a problem for you, this will not be a pleasant vacation. Had I not been assured that we could have handicap access to our condo, I would not have made the reservations. We were informed today that the only units with handicap access are occupied by owners. So, effectively, there are no units with handicap access for anyone other than owners of those specific units. All units are on stilts and even those on first floor must climb stairs to get to them, which is no problem for most folks, but is for those of us who can't climb stairs. Virginia Eblen

Location is great!!! Wonderful pool, clean , big condos . Could park the car and just completely relax for a week. Walking distance to everything-- fun activities , night life--just remember there are no grocery stores on the island!!! On bay side with a great pier, walk across the street to the wonderful ocean beach!!

This resort though small is the perfect place for relaxation. It was very clean and well appointed and it is apparent that the resort is very well taken care of. The only negative that my husband had was the age of the small tv's in the bedrooms. A small flat screen would be nice. I don't go on vacation to watch tv so I honestly didn't care whether there was a tv or not. The resort has all new furniture and carpet. If you drive to the west end of the island the beach there is pristine. We took several walks in the morning there and it was beautiful. There are not many activities at the resort so you may want to go elsewhere if that is a requirement for you. They do have a free breakfast, an ice cream social and a luncheon. We will stay here again as we became owners on this visit.

We stayed here in October for the week, 3 adults, 2 kids (11 & 13), had a great time! Beach is right across street, easy access to that! Pool and hot tub on property are very nice. Only drawback for us was little quick fast food places. We only found the subway next door in the little strip mall.

Very well maintained time share. Within walking distance to lots of eating places. Brenda, manager, gives a nice free breakfast every Tuesday. Make sure to go. They also have a ice cream social at 1pm on Wednesday. We went and made it our lunch. Only problem we had was very poor internet service. Most of the time it wasn't working or way to slow. Housekeeping could do a little better. Found a couple of hairs in the shower and the door in the bathroom had dried stuff on it that came off very easy with a wet rag.

Lovely locution right on the sound, excellently maintained by staff, grounds and units. Get a top floor unit if possible to enjoy views of the water. Lovely spot for walking g to beach or attractions and restaurants, ideal ins off season when nice and quiet. Greet staff friendly nothing too much trouble, units spacious and well equipped, we didn't want to leave!

On,y fly in the ointment was the nightly loud music CFO bar next door, they don't need to have it so loud that you can't hear your tv in the co do! Only this spoiled our stay, otherwise oerfect and one of the best RCI exchanges we have ever had.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor unit to get best views

My wife and I booked a Saturday to Saturday stay at Holiday Beach Soundside. We had to come in late on Monday and checked out on Saturday. We then stayed two more nights at a hotel we booked through an internet website. The contrast between the properties was incredible. I have been spoiled by staying in timeshare properties and Holiday Beach is a nice one - the units are spacious, well maintained, with nice views, convenient access to local attractions, good parking, clean new kitchens. The internet hotel we stayed at was anything but...

My only complaint is that the wireless internet, while available, is very, very weak. To get a signal at all we had to sit out on the screened in porch with our laptop. I imagine that in mid-summer this would be very uncomfortable. We do a lot of our trip planning on the fly via the internet, so having to sit outside for a great deal of the time was bothersome. If they would correct this one minor niggle, I would rate Holiday Beach as excellent.
