First anniversary trip

This hotel was perfect for us. We had a garden, ground level room but could see the ocean from our patio. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. Although there isn't a great beach right at the resort, there are a couple within walking distance and lounge chairs right by the water. Overall the room was clean and comfortable but they definitely don't put extra effort into deep cleaning. The carpet was stained, and the bed wasn't the best but overall it fit our needs and was a good price. The daily maid service was a nice plus as well as the in unit washer and dryer. We would stay here again.

Great Layback!

The grounds, ponds and ocean view are very nice including the pools. Not crowded with lots of space in grassy areas. The room was very good, large balcony with a great view. Will go back again. Down side was the parking spaces, constant shedding of tree stuff (probably time of year) that stuck to your shoe soles. Nosy construction going on but necessary. Some guests would be very upset due to the construction noise and want to be compensated for it as my wife would......

Duke's, Sea House and others are very good but pricey. Outback's food is very good and much more economical but misses the ambiance. Go to booth places. .

R&R weekend

Enjoyed resting and doing nothing but what I wanted to do. Room and services were adequate for my needs and privacy was great. Grounds are beautiful. Kitchen was great to have. Brought my own food and didn't have to find a restaurant though there is a very nice one near by. Could not figure out how to play the DVD or the Playstation but had my computer so no problem. Have stayed here before and would stay again. Great Staycation.

Good location.

Good location! Had a great time whale watching from the patio. The condo itself needs a little updating. Looks a little worn but has everything you need. We were able to take the bus at the neighboring hotel and that was very handy. My husband was disappointed that he could not enjoy the water front near our condo, since it is very rocky and almost not beach area. Overall, adequate place to stay but might not stay again.

Wonderful holiday

We had a wonderful holiday at this hotel. The feeling that you are living at home. Comfortable apartments with balconies overlooking the sea with all necessary. Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer. High-speed Internet access. Free parking. Quiet. Although the hotel does not have its own beach, there are excellent beaches at a distance of 1.8 kilometers to the south, or at a distance of 4 kilometers to the north. Supermarket where you can buy everything from a distance of 300 meters.

Great little condo

The condo was a little dated but very clean. The kitchen had been updated so that was nice. Housekeeping came in every morning and cleaned up, didn't expect that because it was a condo. It was great having washer/dryer and the kitchen convenience. I thought it was a great location, walking distance to a lot of stores, farmers markets and it was right on the beach. Not 5 star but nice nonetheless......I would return.

Excellent Choice on my part

Everything was awesome. Was promised an oceanfront condo and I was not disappointed! View and condo just so wonderful. Staff was very helpful and room was cleaned everyday. Couldn't have had a more relaxing time and looking forward to my next trip to the same location on July 12th, 2013. Thanks for a wonderful trip!!!!!!!
