I first learned of the whaler when I was invited to stay with a friend for a weekend. Soon after I bought timeshare here and would highly recommend it. You couldn't get any closer to the ocean. Although it is an older place, the staff go above and beyond to accommodate their guests needs and improvements are always being made...

Great place reasonably priced. Fabulous beach and pool. We stay here 2 weeks in August and 2 weeks in October with 16 other friends from Ohio. We all have time shares here and vacationing together is a blast. Time shares here are a bargain. 4 weeks condos for under $15,000.00 forever. Good deal!

I didn't have a good experience the last time I stayed here, but every hotel I called was booked. The room was ok but the bed and pillows were hard. We never could sign in to the free Wi-Fi even with the password provided. There was a problem with the hot tub. My bath water is warmer than that water....

My wife and I have stayed for a week most years for many years. You can't beat the price for a stay at an oceanfront property. Right on 20+ miles of beautiful sandy beach, on which we have found many pretty seashells. It has an indoor pool and Jacuzzi, as well as a game room. We stay in a very...

It hurts my heart to see reviews of poor experiences at the Whaler. We have been coming to the Whaler at least once a year for the past 20+ years. If management has been a problem as some indicate, it will be discussed at the weekly owner meeting. My own personal experience at the Whaler has been different. Continuous maintenance...

It is right on the ocean. I love there is a grass area between building and sand with porch swings, chairs, grills, picnic tables and fish cleaning station. There is also lighting there at night. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit. Baths are small, 1 has shower only. Sleeper sofa, queen bed & 2 twins. It was furished with...
