My husband and I have traveled all over the world always staying in timeshares and this is simply the best there is. We now make sure we stay at Oceana Palms for one week every March. It is new, but next March will be our third trip. All our children and grandchildren have decided this is where they want to meet us each year. The pools, the huge hot tub, the kids club, the little restaurant/bar, the beach, the ocean is so swim friendly, the surrounding area restaurants are just outstanding. It's a short drive to Jupiter to visit the lighthouse, to Stewart and Port St. Lucie for day trips. I keep hearing about Riviera being a poorer neighborhood, but that's only if you cross the bridge and we simply don't travel in that direction, other than to catch the ferry to Peanut Island (a real treat) or eat at the Sailfish Inn. We haven't tried the new Publix because the drive north is so very pretty and really not far. There are wonderful activities and state parks and yes sometimes the beach shows some erosion but we just knock down a path our first day and enjoy it the rest of the week. We rented bicycles and took them to the state park one year. The next year we rented a kayak and paddled to the state park. Awesome. The lower decks are all parking decks and because of the very clever building design, there are only wonderful views from each and every room. My only wish is for sidewalks so we don't have to walk the beach to everywhere. But maybe they will have them this year. We are anxious to see how far they have come with the new building, but we are glad it won't be finished because we prefer staying in the original one - even if the furnishings will be older. This is a very popular resort because of it's perfection, so if you plan on going make your reservations as early as possible...we book for the following year while we are there, yep twelve months in advance if not more.
