We chose the Breezeway for it's location and the glowing trip advisor reviews. On the website the resort looks like a motel. Plain and simple. I was hesitant, because I try not to stay at motels for my vacations, but the reviews made it sound like it was more. When I opened the door to our room, in the main building I was definitely surprised. There was nothing wrong with the room other than it smelled a little moldy (seaside carpeting), but it was incredibly small. The beds are comfy, and the rooms, and resort are very clean, but it's definitely not worth 250 mid week in high season for 2 doubles. Closets and efficiency kitchen are tiny. If you stay on the ground floor you have a view of the cars parked in front of you. They charge 20 bucks extra for each addl person. Not exactly family friendly.
The breakfast is a starchfest. Bread, toast & cereal. No fruit. Not many real breakfast options close by, but I did notice a breakfast sandwich place at the ice cream place on the beach.
The beach is further than they make it sound, and the piece they own is pretty small and penned in. The pool is very clean and nice but a little cold for a heated pool. The grounds are lovely with a well manicured lawn, plants and interesting fountains.
There is a rooftop patio which is great for hanging out and having lunch.
The staff are friendly and courteous
I would recommend staying in one of the other separate buildings for more space & privacy if you can afford it.
All in all, we had a great vacation because we had great weather and good friends, but if you stay in the main building you are staying in a clean, overpriced motel. No more, no less
