Resort is very convenient to everything--it's in the middle of the block. Lots of eateries and shops closely nearby (e.g. Chick fil A, Golden Corral, Wendy's, McDonalds, Winn-Dixie, Target, Hog's Breath, whataburger, Ihop, Water Park, Go-karts, etc.).
Beautiful scenery w/ palm trees, clean and very serene. Having a security guard office in front to monitor incoming cars is very nice. We stayed in terrace bldg which was literally a 2-3 minute walk to main bldg/beach--didnt need to take advantage of the FREE Tram rides. Bldgs are well maintained. Beach is clean but rather small area--that's b/c there are tons of resorts all lined up in a row along the beach next to each other. We chose to rent beach chairs/umbrella ($7/hr) if you're stay is short. Elevators are fast!
Our 2 BDRM/2 BATH condo was nice and modern--3 flat screens and updated washer/dryer. Balcony is nice and long--extends down to master bedroom. It would have been nice to have whirlpool tub in master bedroom. Make sure u bring a couple of extra rolls of toilet tissue to have on hand--they provide 1 extra roll in each bathroom. If staying a week and cooking in your room also bring extra trash bags (3) and dish washing detergent--they only provide 2 packets for dishwasher. You'll definitely need laundry detergent--none provided.
You must try Shake's Custard while here! We went to the Donut Hole early--like 8:30 am and had only 5 minute wait for a table. Ate breakfast and It was just okay--a bit pricey. Donuts were just okay--lots of variety but taste was not "good or great".
