Best thing about this resort is the location. While some may not like the "lagoon" area that separates the actual beach from the resort, we enjoyed it for the fishing and watching the abundant bird life. The lagoon is actually made up of tidal type pools that are in various levels. Some drain out totally with the tide, and some of it stays in the more muddy areas. It was not difficult at all to wade through the shallow sandy areas, or walk around to get to the beach.
The resort is further north than the "touristy area", and is mostly condos and some private houses in this section, which makes the beach less populated and quieter.
Pool area is beautiful, and there were many long time regulars that had been coming there for years that were enjoying it every day.
As these are all very small one bedroom units, this resort was not over run with wild children or teenagers, which made it more peaceful for a relaxing get away.
Our only bad thing, was the horrible "motel six" style, through the wall , A/C unit. It made a terrible grinding banging noise all the first night, which made it impossible to sleep.
The next day, Sunday, we missed our opportunity to get with mantainence as they closed early in the day. The DH and I ended up investigating the problem ourselves and found out it was not level, as it was simply sitting in the "hole" in a hap-hazzard way. A few folded pieces of paper and lots of trail and error, and we managed to quiet it down enough to sleep, though still very noisy, it did not bang any longer.
This A/C unit needs replacing badly, as it is outdated, rusty, and may have been 20 years old. Other minor things in the unit needed repairs that were not done, but noted on our report as we left. Cable TV did not work well at all until we realized on the last day that the cable connection was all chewed up.
Wish we had checked it earlier, instead of just assuming they had bad reception.
Otherwise we had a nice time, and did not mind the extremely small unit, calling it our
"cozy" hideaway. Bring your laptop, as the free WIFI worked really well and was very fast.
