I took my two daughters and their children for a quick trip to the beach and chose this place based on the reviews. The campground and facilities were great...so were the staff. We were a little disappointed with the accommodations. We rented both a resort owned cabin and an owner's cabin. The resort owned (#1-10) was newer. I expected it to be small, but was smaller than the pictures depict. The bathroom reminded me of a cruise ship...almost as small! The beds were comfortable...thankfully. The kitchen is minimally equipped...not even a frying pan...though there were a few saucepans. Plently of dishes, utensils, etc. Did I mention ants? The cabin was infested with ants. We found them on the first day in the kitchen...later we found them in the loft ON THE BED! The loft...an adult can't stand up...even on your knees...you have to crawl. The stairs are EXTREMELY narrow and steep. I took a tumble down the stairs and still have the bruises. The floors were filthy...I noticed my grandsons feet were very dirty...then noticed mine. Had to wear shoes...even though you didn't see dirt...floors could use a good scrubbing. And the beach is actually the sound...small island in the distance so it isn't actually the gulf...water a little darker, murkier...found good shells though. Positives: quiet, friendly neighbors, clean/comfortable beds, safe area, few but good restaurants, good pool/facilities. Negatives: cooking utensils, ANTS, dirty floors, cheap LR furniture.
The owner's cabin was much older, but clean. Very well equipped. Had a funny smell, but not offensive. Beds were comfortable. Mini-kitchen, but had everything you needed. Comfortable LR furniture.
