Had a 3-bedroom suite. Unbelievably spacious. All bedrooms with their own bathroom, large closets, washer/dryer, kitchen.
Our deck had the spiral stair down to the pool & beach area. Although it's a "man-made" beach area, it's quite nice, has a small pier. Poolside bar, cabanas, lounge chairs. Happy hour specials. The restaurant even had some specials (I think it was buy 2 meals, get a bottle of wine free). We didn't partake, but it's a nice feature. Bar/restaurant always had people and the breakfast buffet was great.
They do provide a shuttle service down & back to Duval. They also have parking under the units which is nice. My particular unit's master bed was quite comfortable.
I would certainly stay here again.
My suggestion for a small improvement would be the shuttle. IT would be nice if this ran more than once an hour and later. We missed it every day (leaves on the hour for Duval & returns from Duval at 20pas the hour) thru no fault of theirs but it would have been nice to save the cab fare every night. It also needs to run later than 11pm. If you are out on Duval past 10pm, chances are you are not returning (or want to return) at 11:20pm. It would be nice if there was a return late night or an option for a call pickup.
The other "knocks" on the property are location (about 4-5mi from Duval) and it was a little pricey for some people, though I found the value for a 3-bedroom suite of this nature to be acceptable at $600/nt. Where else can you actually find a 3-bedroom unit? If you split it out, that's $200/bedroom which is the going rate for anyting decent especially on St Patty's weekend in the middle of Spring Break.
The price & location I do not hold against them as I knew this going in so my only true knock is the shuttle service times.
Overall, great experience and on-par with my expectations. Would certainly recommend the hotel.
