“First time and not the last...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

We have some friends who have a time share here. We decide to give it a try. We had 12 in our family and we shared two 2 bedroom units with sleeper sofa and roll away bed on the first floor of the south unit. The rooms are very nice and clean. They have a few annoying things we thought strange. One for instance, any child under 18 had to wear an arm band. Not a big deal after all after I saw the security guard, which they have all over the place, ask some young people who were not staying there to leave.

They have a lot of on property activists. The 9 hole mini golf is not anything like ones down the strip, but pretty fun. They have corn hole and shuffle board.

We all had a great time and are planning next year's stay as I post this.

Stayed June 2014

We stayed at this resort in their second building, 7th floor, starting on Memorial Day. It was easy check in and the unit was a one bedroom, one bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, living room and small balcony. The resort is nice and having a security code to get back on the grounds from the beach is very much appreciated. The beach is clean and they offered beach chairs for the beach and on the grounds. During the week they offered clean towels. This resort is easy access to many restaurants you can walk to or an easy drive. The unit and the grounds were very clean.

We were in a room on the city side. We could hear the conversations of adjoining room. The property is on a busy intersection and near a hospital so there was a lot of road noise.
It is also near the public access to the beach. There were a lot of cars on the beach in front of the building. The bed was very uncomfortable. It sagged on one side. The refrigerator was installed backwards making it was hard to get into. A large piece of plexiglass fell out of the bathroom light. The outside pool area was nice. Steve at the tiki bar was a highlight.

The place is beautiful, situated in an excellent location, the one room villa was in excellent condition, very accomodating, it was supplied with everything needed to make a comfortable stay. plenty anemities and fun things to do.(be aware "Ocean View" is a room on the side of the building with partial view, not the same as "Ocean Front")

cons: The staff was not as friendly as we excepted, when confronted with complains, intead of providing solutions for our problems, defensive and not very helpful attitude was showned. Since arrival to the resort we were harrast with assisting to a Timeshare presentation, dispite our refusal to attend, daily flyers with offers were placed in our door ($100, $200.,addittional night, late check out). After ignoring all of their offers, as a reprisal for not attending, we were denied a request for late check out.

Room Tip: with looking for full ocean view need to get a ocean front

Stayed at the south building thru exchange with Interval International. Rated gold leaf by them, which is the highest rating. This is a nice resort but by no means a "premier" resort. Furnishings were average. We had many maintenance issues for a resort that was only a few years old (tv broke, a/c unit unable to regulate, refrigerator couldn't close properly without slamming the door, toaster broken, oven controls bashed in. All these issues taken care of by maintenance but should have been high end appliances for a premier hotel. No closet space to speak of, no storage in bathroom. All activities etc. next door along with pool. Nice ocean front unit. I would stay there again but I would know what to expect. Good location.

Room Tip: I thin all the rooms in the south building ocean front with good views

In single bed condo - no pantry an very small closet to hang clothes in bedroom. At "resort" - no restaurant, very small pool to serve hotel and condo, no store, and very small tiki hut bar by pool. Pool and pool deck close rediculously early (Memorial Day weekend) at 9:00 PM. Understood for off season but not prime season. Will not come back.
