Stayed here a week in December 2013. The rooms are OK but us being a family of four a bit small, and the furnishing could most adequately be described as basic. That the rooms weren't cleaned on a regular basis didn't really bother us, but the ant colony that inhabited the kitchen area were definitely a nuisance. Any fruits or groceries left on the kitchen counter would inevitably be infested with ants, so we had to make sure everything was put in the fridge.
Apart from this, as has been mentioned in many reviews already, the hotel's location directly on the beach is marvellous, and the staff is very friendly offering tips and suggestions on restaurants and places worth of visiting. John's Pass village nearby have many eateries although you'd get a bit tired of the type of "tourist food" served there after a few days. Then we made daytrips to places like Clearwater, St Petersburg, and Sarasota instead. The kids enjoyed hanging out at the pool area too.
All in all my opinion is that you'd expect a bit more considering what you pay to stay here
