Can't wait to go back!
Reviewed 23 hours ago

We are FL residents and have been to many luxury resorts for our staycations. This one did not dissapoint! We stayed in a beautiful unit, steps from the beach. It was clean, well stocked,and so cozy. Two big screen TVs VERY comfy bed! We stayed in one of the end units, which is recommended.. quiet and private. But we also enjoyed our time by the pool and Tiki Bar (very convenient) which was fun and lively with a great guitar player. The bartenders were nice and upbeat and remembered all the customers names or affectionately called them by their room number.
It was our anniversary that weekend. They left us a lovely surprise gift in our room, which was sooo appreciated. Staff was great! Even the waitress at the restaurant knew it was our anniversary and greeted us as such and gave us free dessert. Excellent service!
The girl who took care of the pool area/towels worked above and beyond was always on point.She had things totally managed and in control Excellent employee I think her name was "Morgan". I apologize if I'm wrong with her name
My daughter and her fiance' from NYC surprised us that weekend and LOVED IT as well!
Also, there are no "ground" floors! every room has a great view

Very nice resort
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I was a bit worried to stay here because of some poor reviews but ultimately I am very glad we did. I would stay here again.

Nice property - nice pool.

Not a “5” because the couch was stained on the front, hole in porch screen and tub of cleaning supplies left outside the door for multiple days.

Otherwise very clean - nice floor plan ...

Living room TV should be larger.

Disappointing 2nd visit
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed here for a night last year and had a great experience. This time not so much. We again booked a one bedroom and when we arrived they “upgraded “ us to a two bedroom. We wished they hadn’t. There were dirty towels on the stairs, the 2nd bathroom was not clean. Our door off the screened porch would not open. We called mainland they came immediately. He tried to fix it and announced he had no idea how to fix it so oh well. None of the TVs in the rooms worked, they had all been disconnected and we had to hook them back up. All in all not a great stay and we can not recommend them. I think the last straw us on checkout they didn’t even take a minute to ask how our stay was. I’m guessing they didn’t care.

Beach Location was the Best!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Couldn't ask for better beach location, just steps from the room! Be sure to set up to have beach chairs with umbrellas (extra charge) since this will definitely be a welcome break and help prolong your time on the beach. Disappointed that the pool cafe closed at 6pm; and even arriving at 5pm one day it was questionable whether we would be able to order food. The kiddie pool was wonderful for little ones. Negatives-Pool cafe and rental seemed overpriced especially since supposed to be 'off season', tv in one of rooms not working and it took MANY calls to get it fixed, rooms superficially updated but need more extensive updating to justify the cost of rental. Keep in mind no elevators, lots of stairs.

Accommodations as expected

We were hesitant to book this resort again, because of some bad reviews stating updating was needed. We were there ten years, and considering the age of the buildings, was afraid this would be true. Our condo was wonderful. Updated and very clean. And steps to the large, private beach. It was never over crowned. Screened in porch was very relaxing to use while having morning coffee. There is maid service and coffee and toiletries were provided. I would recommend if you need privacy and relaxation.
