We selected December as our time to get away because we knew very few people would be at the beach during this time of year. The weather was wonderful and had many walks on the beach.
The resort was doing some renovations and in all honesty we thought the noise would be a disturbance, but it wasn't. Our room was near the indoor pool and again, we thought that would generate a lot of noise. There was normal traffic through the area during the daytime hours and disappeared as the evening hours arrived. The noise was managable because this is the off season and we are not certain that this would be the case if it was summer.
Our lodging area was neat and clean, well stocked with the necessities (plates, silverware, t.p., etc.). The bedrooms were roomy and the bathrooms were great. The master bath is pictured and had enough room for 3 teenage girls to get ready. One of them called it a huge beauty salon! The other bathroom was normal size and had enough room for 1 person to get ready. You may want to note that there was only enough hot water for 2 showers, so we alternated times--morning and evening to make it work. We slept with the sliding door ajar because it was naturally warm despite turning the thermostat off in the room and the sound of the surf was very relaxing.
The staff was courteous and kind, but the sales staff never take NO for an answer. As owners, we constantly complain about this annoyance.
We recommend staying in Villas I as they are oceanfront rooms. Be advised that you will want a higher floor to diffuse any noise generated by the outdoor pool traffic below. Villas II is right across the street and if beach access is a priority, staying at either will get you fast access.
Resort is a 2 minute drive from Barefoot Landing, a 15-20 minute drive from the airport (mind you this was December) and Broadway on the Beach is 10 minutes away.
Our favorite place, and tradition to visit, is Liberty Tap Room at Broadway. The appetizers and lunch menu are good and the micro-brew is fantastic. If you want a lighter beer, try the Liberty Lager.
