We visited Weston's Resort for a looksee to check it out for a few days getaway on the beach. We only live 45mins away so thought we'd investigate it first. From the first contact (Mary in the office) we felt welcome. We parked up and took a look about - walking from the car to the little cabana we wanted to rent, there it was - the turqoise blue of the Gulf with miles of quiet sands. The cabana was 20ft from the beach with wonderful views and a little shaded area for our BBQ. We happily plonked down our deposit and returned in a few days laden down with our BBQ, food, deckchairs, umbrella and candles. Walking into the room we were pleasantly surprised - this is a budget resort with no frills but although clearly quite old, everything was spotlessly clean and all the essentials were there - including nice fluffy towels. Straight to the bed for a bounce - huge king size mattress that appeared brand new with crispy sheets.
We had one minor panic when we turned on the bathroom sink taps for the first time and a stream of sugar ants rushed out of the overflow! (Well, this is Florida and this is right on the beach) - a quick call and within a minute a very helpful guy showed up and dealth with them right away. He even left air fresheners on the lampshades to cover the insecticide smell. Just like home! A very minor thing and efficiently dealt with.
The location is wonderful - right next to Stump Pass park. The water was warm and gently shelving - ideal for kids. We walked along to stump pass twice a day (about an hour) and my wife was busy with shells and sharks teeth. Its totally unspoilt and has to be experienced. No crowded beach holiday here.
We brought our BBQ and beach chairs and I'd recommend you do the same - there are a few provided close to the accomodation but we wanted to laze in the gentle surf.
We're saving up for another trip.
A wonderful experience.
