My wife and I spent 3 nights in R2, while my daugher and her boyfriend stayed in R1. The rooms are adjacent. This place isn't elegant, but the units are clean, and the beach is right out the door. We spent our time on the decks or on the beach, so who needs a fancy room? The beach is terrific. It's uncrowded, and it goes for miles. Great snorkeling right in front of the place. There are restaurants and stores nearby, and the neighborhood is quiet. Both units are equipped with gas grills, satellite TV, and adequate kitchens. The knives in the kitchens are very dull, however. My wife didn't like the place as well as I did, as she likes her vacations to be a little more posh, but we all had fun.
