My wife and I along with two other couples stayed here from 12/25/04 - 1/01/05. The place is landscaped beautifully with great views of the ocean from every suite. The cook and housecleaning were wonderful aspects and we were treated exceptionally well. Unfortunately, the beach was extremely small and disappointing - and the perpetual wave runners parked on it made it downright crowded. Despite the beach, this place is the perfect getaway for those wanting a quiet and secluded vacation with no distractions. While there were a few other occupied suites in the area, we felt like we had it to ourselves. Sometimes it may have seemed too quiet and secluded. If one wants a lot of social interactivity - and the ability to meet new people, this is probably not the place. While most resorts have many amenities such as a fitness center and spa, the apartment offered nothing of this kind which can be a deterrent for some. To many this is not an issue, but to avid runners it can prove to be quite frustrating. Overall we had a lovely time in our apartment. Aside from Mother Nature being in a sour mood (it rained for five of our seven days) we had a lovely time.
