This resort is full of condos but we prefer the Motel! Its great. We prefer the Motel because its quiet since its away from all the large gathering areas, its private and its right on the beach. In the sand! The rooms are old fashioned but clean and large. We sleep a family of 4 or more easily. It was so close to our beach spot we napped kids in the room while we played. Didn't even need a monitor, we were like 50ft away from the door at the most. With the condos, you never know what you're paying for. You could get a lovely remodeled one or dump from the 70s. With the Motel you know what you're getting. The resort is alot of fun. It has a park, lots of grass, horseshoe pits, water rentals like kayaks and paddleboats, tennis courts, mini golf, pools, kiddie pools, hot tubs, etc. The first time we went here we worried there was no beach with sand. But there has been every year we've gone, and plenty of it! The only thing i wish was different is the motel check in isn't until 4pm and checkout is 10am. That's kind of lame. So far though we have always been allowed to check in early, around 1pm without a fee. We already have our reservations for this year. Can't wait!
