There were six of us that stayed in a 2 bedroom condo, 2 adults plus kids ages 11 month, 3yrs, 11 and 12. Everyone had a blast. The staff was great and very pleasant to deal with and when we arrived, we were able to check in right away. They gave us coupons that we could use and we did for Momma Mia's pizza which was very good and Atlantic water sports for parasailing (more details listed below). Even though it rained 4 of the 7 days we were there, there were so many other things we were able to do. What is nice about this resort is that it is gated and private but close to pretty much everything. I'll break it up below because these are things that I would've liked to know going down for the first time.
Pool -The resort will give you 1 card per person staying in the room to get towels for the pool. You can get towels by the golf course and when you take your towel back you can get a new towel or your card back each day. There were a couple pools so it never seemed over crowded. The kids water park was a lot of fun. We went there almost every day. They will close if any storms with thunder roll in but if its only raining they will stay open. There were at least 4-5 life guards just in the waterpark area but they were a lot of fun and were pretty laid back which was awesome. They allowed the kids to have fun! Parents could go down all the slides with the kids which was another great thing and the pools were clean. The lazy river and pool that is connected was heated so we went there a lot because it felt wonderful.
Room - The 2 bedroom place was very spacious and clean. Our kitchen had plates, bowls, cups, pots and a pan, baking sheet, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and refrigerator with freezer. It also had a washer and dryer although it took things forever to dry in the dryer....it almost sounded like it was on its last leg, but it worked. They give you a dish towel, clothes and a couple dishwasher tabs but if you have a large family and plan on cooking, bring additional tabs. Also bring laundry detergent. They provide you with towels and wash clothes. The maid comes on Tuesdays and will swap out your dirty towels for clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were nice and clean.
Grilling - If you like to grill they have grills throughout the resort, just remember to bring or buy aluminum foil there,
Groceries - We shopped for groceries at Bi-low which was close to the resort and signed up for their bonus card. Just from shopping for the week we were able fill our gas tank before we left and saved $.38 per gallon(only at certain gas stations). Just another perk in our trip.
The beach - The beach was gorgeous! It was easier to drive there. If you go towards the beach and go to the right its more rowdy but to the left is more family like. Heading down you will see a public parking sign every so many feet on the right. Its free to park and is a short walk to the beach with rinsing stations. The ocean water was as warm as the heated pool water and the waves just rolled in so the kids were able to go out! Beautiful!
Things to do: If you are looking to do something fun, Atlantic water sports has parasailing and for 3 people to go up together, only costs $120 with the coupon. My husband and 2 kids had a lot of fun.
Shopping - Must check out barefoot landing! It was very nice there. We held the baby tiger and monkey. Cost $99 but the kids loved it! You get 1 8x10 picture. You can buy additional pics for $20 each or the disk with all the pics was $75. They have a lot of shops there and cool bridges that are just above the water and turtles and huge carp will come up right next to you. The boardwalk shopping center was fun too and both Boardwalk and Barefoot have fireworks 1x every week. You can also go to the actual boardwalk by the beach. If you have kids you'll probably want to drive look for parking on the right before the ferriswheel - its only $10 all day parking...some places charged $7 an hour!!!!
All in all, it was an amazing first time and we hope to go back again next year!
