Stayed here for 7 nights in August on a last minute vacation. The beach is absolutely lovely. A great stretch of sand in front of the condos. It was never crowded and chairs were always available. Great shady spots on beach too. We really liked how quiet this part of the beach was compared to the Westin or Ritz. The pool was fine...kids were happy to play in it. It was like a hot tub in August (baking in the summer sun all day).
We like to stay at condos for the convenience and space. The unit we had was fine (may have been last one available). The beds were comfortable and furniture fine. Needed a cot as one room had a queen bed)-kids didn't like the cot at all (oh well..at least they had one to offer us). The kitchen was pretty tight (but hey...it's only for a week). One thing we didn't love was the balcony. Yes, they're screened in which is great and we did have a view. But, they are not private because of how they are situated. So when we would sit out at night or at lunch, we would have a clear view of the people right next door who were doing the same thing and we could easily hear their conversations. Also, I was disappointed to learn that smoking is allowed on the balconies (luckily our neighbors weren't smoking). Our unit was at the back of the building and I was surprised by the road noise we could hear from the balcony.
The manager Theresa was lovely. She was helpful and cared about her guests.
We met some lovely families staying there who are repeat visitors. Also, because of the nature of condos, sometimes there were big family groups.
All in all, I would stay here again, likely would try a different unit.
