My husband and I have been here twice now and we absolutely love it. The beach was absolutely gorgeous- clean and well kept. The condos are very spacious, tidy, and clean. Loved the view and peacefulness of the resort. We will definitely be back!

So after reading some of the reviews I was skeptical but it turned out to be a great place for us. The condo, 1903 is super clean, and decorated very modern with comfortable furniture and beds. The view was amazing, the staff was exceptionally friendly. The pools were small but honestly we stayed at the beach both days. The first...

I'm a little confused able some of the negative reviews. My family stayed in unit 2001 in July and absolutely loved it. Amazing view from the 20th floor. Plenty of room for 8 of us with some space to spare. I really liked that it had it's own washer and dryer and more home furnishings and kitchenware that my personal...

We stayed in 717. Nice 2brm, 2bath unit. Owners easy to deal with. Based on similar units we've stayed in on the Gulf this was a bit pricey in comparison. The unit we were in had a SIDE view of the beach, nice view of the pool and overlooks the BBQ pit area. (Photos on VRBO were a tad misleading)...

The location was great! My complaints are not huge, but enough for me not to return to this resort. The beach area was very, very crowded. There were rows upon rows of the umbrella chairs for rent. We were 3 rows deep and it really defeated the purpose because I couldn't relax there & see my son at the same...
