Property was older and could use some renovation. Pullout bed uncomfortable. For the price I paid I would expect better.

Great place to stay.

Pros: All rooms are oceanfront Cleanliness Friendly staff
Location: We parked our car in the parking lot when we arrived and did not move it until we checked out. We could walk to everything.
We went there for our 31st wedding anniversary. We loved our condo. It was very clean, bed was so comfortable, and we walked out of our bedroom door to a wonderful view of the ocean. We definitely recommend this resort. We just wish we could have had a few more days to enjoy it.

Peak season only

Pros: Location only beautiful view of the ocean.
Cons: Inform guest before they arrive of everything needed to know like no housekeeping service.
Location: went as for as 30 mins away for activities
I wasn't informed that service and restaurant were closed for the season and no housekeeping was available for clean towels the microwave didn't work nor did the coffee pot.We were on the 4th floor and had to go to 6th floor in order to get clean towels and the roll out bed was like sleeping on bare springs my neck still hurts.

Just ok.

Pro's: right on the beach/boardwalk, sunrise from the balcony, small kitchen, 2 tv's, very friendly staff, heated pool, sleeper sofa, decent Wi-Fi (at least in my room). Con's: room not the cleanest, looks old and run down, bed was soft but not comfortable, not a lot of plugs for charging stuff, didn't seem to be a good value for what we paid.
