Positives: View, access to the Lakewalk, location just off 35 & London Rd
Negatives: Noise, tired furnishings
My family stayed in a 2 bedroom suite (207B) which had an unsurpassed view. Unfortunately the room was noisy (it shares an entrance with another room - guests who checked in next door at 11pm made for disruptive sleep) and the furnishings were tired (tear in the sofa, damage to wood tables, burned out lightbulbs, stains on the carpet, etc). Maintenance to that particular room could've been better, though the hotel as a whole was nice.
I wouldn't recommend Beacon Pointe to families with small children - the noise issue was evident again during housekeeping hours, which align perfectly with nap time for little ones. However, for families with older children or for couples, it would be just fine.
The views offset the negative aspects, though I think the resort label is a misnomer - there was no explanation of amenities upon check in and the fellow working the front desk seemed less than enthused about his job.
