We stayed in a one-bedroom unit that was impressively and tastefully decorated. The bathroom is one of the biggest we have had at any resort, which comes in handy when there are three women in a room! We took advantage of the full kitchen and ate a few meals in the room and were very happy with the supplies provided. On the resort, there is a grocery store, full salon and spa, very large and complete workout facilities, and a beautiful outdoor pool and hot tub. They even have a childcare facility!
Obviously the best thing about the resort is the beach only steps away. You do have to pay to rent the chairs and umbrellas, but you could always just roll out a towel and lie right down! There were many groups on the beach that were offering the opportunity to pay for various water sports: parasailing, kayaking, jet skiing, etc. We purchased a few water noodles and body surfboards at the local Ocean Mall and enjoyed the ocean. The water was clear and beautiful, and while the beach was packed, there was still enough room for everyone!
Our major complaint was the sales pitches. At the time we stayed in 2001, they were going on constantly, and the resort offered activities that were actually thinly veiled attempts to sell another timeshare. We found that we needed to avoid a lot of the staff to bypass these sales pitches, and we even found that we didn’t want to answer the phone because they would inevitably be calling to invite us to participate in yet another selling session. But, if you can avoid all that, you can truly have an enjoyable and relaxing stay at this resort!
