This was a last minute trip for us through an RCI exchange. We wanted to be on the Gulf and as far south as possible. This is the place.
It is small place of only 40+ units. 3 of them are across the street and are all 2 bedrooms. There are 2 pools. One on the beach side and one behind the 3 units across the street. The pools are heated at about 80 or so degrees. Very nice. We were in unit 28 (a 1 bedroom) which directly faces the beach. Amazing views like Jamaica. The unit is small, but it has a full kitchen/fridge. Nice king size bed but little storage room except for the closet (no dresser-but, a couple pull out drawers). There is no safe in the units, but, after we were there a day or so, no need.
We saw dolphins almost every morning from our 1st floor deck. All rooms are non-smoking, so you head to the deck/outside to smoke. No problem.
You will meet great people at this resort that have coming here for years and/or decades. It is mostly retirees that come here and/or rent/own here. We were the youngest group in the pack that week. Which is ok because everyone was extremely nice and friendly. Great people!
The staff was excellent! If you need unit items, just go to the office during business hours and ask for them. Towel exchange is on Wed from 9am till noon and you can pick up other supplies you may need. They have a free breakfast on Mondays (Eggs, bacon, and toast) and free lunch on Wednesdays (Hot Dogs & baked beans). Nice gathering times for all.
You are about 3.3 miles from the hot spot of the stretch and what is known as the pier. The trolley runs daily and has many stops during that trek. It is 50 cents per person for each ride (doesn't matter where you get off).
You have to go to the Heavenly Biscuit for breakfast as least once. It is on Mango and Estero Blvd. Little place and really crowded. Great breakfast sandwiches but I would shy away from the gravy (bland). Open from 7:30am till 1pm 7days/week.
The only reason we didn't rate this as a 5 are threefold:
1) No hot tub (Big deal for me)
2) No screens on the sliding glass doors to the deck/balcony (especially on the first floor)
3) No safe in units. Even though I did say no worries about this. I would still like a safe for things.
We would go back in a heartbeat, but it is a tough resort to trade into during the peak times. We got last minute lucky.
Merry Christmas to all,
Dave and Missy
