I rented an efficiency suite at The Mardi Gras for 4 days, 2 of which I was joined by my adult daughter and her sons, ages 15 and 10; the last 2 nights was just my husband and myself.
The Mardi Gras is located just across the street from the beach, not more than a one minute walk! There is a convenience store next door and an ice cream/sandwich shop just across the street before the beach. Some restaurants and shops within walking distance, John's Pass Village about 3/4 mile south of the Mardi Gras which has nice shopping, great restaurants and parasailing, jet ski rentals, dolphin cruises, etc. Plenty to keep kids occupied for a day.
The Mardi Gras grounds are not elegant but are well kept and clean. There is an on site laundry. The pool was very clean and sparkly, landscaped with lovely tropical foilage. The kids really enjoyed the pool in the evening.
Our efficiency was spotlessly clean, smelled fresh and the kitchen well equipped for our needs. The main room was large enough for 2 double beds, a foldout sofa, night stand, large dresser and a comfy chair. The television was large and had a DVD player and hook ups for video games. The kitchen (full sized) was a seperate room and large enough to accomodate the dinette set. The bathroom was extremely clean and modern with plenty of shelf room for toiletries. Also, a large closet to store baggage, sacks of souveniers, etc. We were 2nd floor so had direct view of beach between the hotels across the street. The owners were very accomodating but not intrusive. Our unit went for $55 night base price ($5 extra each person over double occupancy, but 12 and under stay for free...unbeatable price.)
The unit was plenty roomy for 5 and could easily accomodate 6.
The beach was beautiful, clean and uncrowded, the sunsets just spectacular.
All in all, this little place is an excellent value, great location, comfortable and very clean. We will definitely return next summer for a lengthier stay.
