We stayed here a week at the end of May in room 232.. We arrived after 5 and noticed a sign that we had to check in at another hotel/resort which was about 10 blocks away. A security guard checked us in. I thought it was funny that we couldn't check in at the Sea Villas but not a big deal, there is no office at the resort. The units are smaller than what we are normally used to but then again you are on the beach. There are 2 twin beds in one bedroom and the other bed is a queen with a sleep number bed. I had never used a sleep number bed. Sleep number beds are like air cushions in a way, they pump up with air! I will stick with my pillow top mattress but I can't say that the bed was bad but can't say it was the best. The unit is stocked with pretty much everything you will need in the kitchen. The kitchen is kind of small but is adequate. Dining table right beside the kitchen is a bit of a tight squeeze. I would say it is better to sleep 4 than 6, it would be a bit to crowded. There are no laundry facilities in the unit, which is a first for us also. But they do have washers and dryers down stairs for 2.00 a wash and 2.00 a dry. One problem we had was the sand. There are no carpets in the unit so your floor gets sandy very fast and is uncomfortable to walk on even on the first day. They do supply a vacuum though and a good one for tile floors (oreck) so it's not so hard to sweep it up. They do not supply pool towels either, you have to go to housekeeping or the office to pick them up so I would suggest asking for them when you check in. . Also the balconies all face one another so if you don't like waking up and seeing other people across you, then it's best to stay inside. We also had some trouble with the key cards. They didn't work most of the time. We had 4 of us and could only use one. It was turtle nesting season and we were warned that we had to close all the curtains/blinds each night or you get a fine, which was fine. The beach is pitch black at night also. They took great care in the dunes and the pool area was very nice but small.. The pool is 4 ft. The beach is wonderful, the temp. was amazing with cool breezes and we enjoyed the light house tour, the parks, and canoeing. We are from Ft. Myers, (the Gulf side) and definitely prefer the Atlantic side. Overall we really enjoyed our vacation here and would come again. Flagler ave was nice but when we went, not much going on. If you like a lot of night life then I would suggest Daytona but we enjoyed it.
