I am doing this review in detail because I see that the management of the resort puts comments on each review and I want to make sure this is honest and fair.
The bad news. This place is not really in south beach. It is about a mile north of the real centre of south beach. There are very few shops or restaurants in the vicinity. We had a difficult job finding it because of that. The apartments are very "tired" and ours smelled a bit. The carpets are very old and not good to look at. The apartment had not been painted for years and the appliances and furniture were all old. Having said that they did all work. The corridors and stairwells are not in good shape. The pool is tiny. We did not even go in it.
For time share accommodation the quality is sub standard. I am glad I am not a member at Westgate if this is what their resorts are like.
It is a shame because the building could be nice if they spent some money on it.
The good news. It is next to the board walk which is great. The board walk is beautiful and a great place to run or walk and a great way to get to south beach. The other really nice feature of the resort was the garden which is lovely with cabanas and hammocks as well as sun beds. Parking was ok. $10 per day but it is right next door.
My summary would be that there are much better places to stay in the area and closer to south beach. If they refurbished the apartments it could be a good resort.
