Our two-bedroom condo was on the top floor/end of the building in the high-rise section of the resort. There were units around the courtyard and pool area that were only two or three stories high. Because of our location, we had amazing views of the Gulf.

The main area of the unit was a large rectangle, so you could see straight through from the kitchen, dining area, living room, and finally, the screened-in balcony. The kitchen was roomy and included an island for extra counter space. Near the entrance, there was a small closet containing a washer/dryer unit.

Since our unit was on the end of the building, we had a window in the dining area. Units in the center of the building had a large mirror on this wall.

The living area had a sleep sofa, two rather uncomfortable chairs, and a large TV. The sliding doors to the porch could be pushed completely back to allow the wonderful ocean breezes to cool the rooms.

Bedroom #2 had twin beds but no TV. The bathroom was standard, but extremely clean.

The master bedroom had a king bed, TV armoire, six-drawer dresser, ceiling fan, and access to the screened porch. The bathroom was roomy and had a standard-size tub, but with jets.

The colors and patterns in the condo gave a tropical feel. Everything seemed new and well-cared-for.

One warning... don't wait till check-out time to try to get an elevator or luggage cart. Load your car the night before or during the night. I've never seen such a mad house. We waited 30 minutes for an elevator.

The resort had a great organized activity program for children. The pool was crystal-clear. Gas grills were in the courtyard, as was a small lunch grill/snack bar with daily specials. One negative was that the beach chairs and umbrellas were VERY expensive. Two chairs, one umbrella, one week - $90. I don't believe this operation was owned by the resort, though.

We would go back in a heartbeat ANYTIME. This resort deserves the Gold Crown (plus some!).
