Loved the Via Roma!

As Bluegreen owners we found it difficult to find availability at this resort and once we did reserve a week, were not quite sure what to expect as we knew the resort was older.

We were all pleasantly suprised! Although the resort is older, the accomodations were very comfortable. We had one of the one bedroom units across the street from the main complex on the ground level. The 'condo' was quite large and the furnishings were more than comfortable. The rooms were all very clean. The kitchen was stocked with every type of cooking essential needed including a great blender!

The pool and hot tub were both very nice and clean. We enjoyed having our lunch in the covered area by the pool which was also an amazing spot for sunsets. We did use the barbecue pits which was nice. Once a week they also had a 'cocktail' hour where you could purchase bloody mary's for $1.

Everyone was very friendly and often gathered each day near the pool. The lady in the office, Collette ??, was exceptionally helpful and took a lot of time to explain to us where everything was on the island.

This is also an amazing stretch of beach!! The water was calm the first couple of days and then when Hurricane Ike brushed by, the surfers came out in droves from all over the US. We found an endless amount of seashells, some of them VERY large.

We liked it so much we are going back in two weeks!
