I was concerned with the number of not great reviews on TA.
I was encouraged by a buy 2 nights get one free with $100 food credit deal.
I was glad I did. Room was excellent. Good size for a 1 BR unit which was remodeled. My buddy has a unit at South Seas Resort on Captiva. He came by after golf and he was impressed.
There was a washer and dryer in unit and I picked up some laundry detergent at Bailey's General Store.
They do not state they have safes in unit on their website which they do have.
I was not impressed with beach as water is still brownish from Lake O. runoff and a million washed shells on the beach making walking and beach activities sometimes painful on the feet.
Pool is smallish for the size of property and really lacks shade/umbrellas that should be standard.
Overall for the price we paid we did okay....but I hate the daily resort fee.
