We stayed here from Feb 22 to Mar 1. It is a little off the beaten path, but not as remote as some reviews made it out to be. All necessities are a short 5 minute drive away. Check in was quick, pleasant. Although we did not get a marina view, and requested to be moved if one became available, it did not happen, but for the time we spent in our room, we were very pleased otherwise. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable and aside from lacking toiletry space in the bathroom, it had everything we needed + more, including free wi-fi. Housekeeping came in 3 or 4 times during the week - not every day, but that was fine. The kitchen was more than adequate for preparing light snacks or picnic lunches and we stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies from roadside vendors for this purpose. The resort itself was very pleasant for walking, exploring, relaxing. Our one meal at the restaurant was good and the sunset from Tiki Bar was beautiful. Beach was more than adequate for our needs - not as "tiny" as some made out. Guess it is what you are used to. Not as busy as some of the large Gulf Coast beaches and we took full advantage of it. We returned to the resort late one night after a hockey game in Tampa and there was a security guard at the gate who carefully checked our id before letting us in the grounds. Very reassuring. All in all, this place was perfect for what we wanted and we would return again. Don't miss The Fish House (Shell Pt Road, open only Thurs, Fri, Sat). Great seafood at reasonable prices.
