this is my 2ed time staying here on a honeymoon. I can't say enough about this place. Every condo they have faces the gulf and beach. When you walk out the back door to go on to the heated pool deck you are only feet away from the BBQ grills and palm trees and tables. Walk down the private boardwalk and you walk onto the private beach and the Gulf. At night you open your patio door and hear nothing but the waves and see all the oil rigs out in the Gulf.
In the morning you can sit and watch the ships out in the Gulf also. We even fell asleep with the patio door open and the sounds of the waves put us right to sleep. What more can you ask for.
The service is second to none. We stayed there 4 night on the 12th floor and it cost us about $800.00. They have everything you could need for a vacation. The maid service is also awesome. It is at the end of the seawall off the main road so you WON'T hear and cars or trucks.
The pic in this review is from our 12th floor patio. Nothing between you and the Gulf but sand.
Believe me this place is awesome.
