We spent spring break here. The decor and rooms could use a serious update. It is conveniently located near the beach. The resort has a nice outdoor pool with a water slide. I loved that there was an indoor pool that had an 8 foot deep end. It included a nice sized hot tub as well. There weren't many people...

The new management of APATB has made some very nice upgrades in the last few years—they have added elevators, a putt-putt course, and have re-carpeted the halls, among other noticeable improvements. We did not brave the outdoor pool or waterslide on our last visit as it was too cold, but we are looking forward to some fun times when the...

Nice, clean resort. If you need easy access, there is an elevator, however, if you are clear at the other end of the building, it is quite a walk to the elevator. Nice view of the ocean on the 3rd floor. Some bottom floor units may not have a view at all. Nice common areas such as pool, playground, grills....

Thank you for staying with us here at APATB. We have addressed the concerns about the dumpsters and we have fixed the drainage issue prior to summer this year. We hope you can vacation with us again in the near future. Have a wonderful day.

The management was helpful, the beach is gorgeous, the resort is clean and the kitchen was well stocked. Yes, it is "old and dated" but many of us are too. There are many things to do and see in the area. We will go back. It was very comfortable.

My hats off to the new management at A Place at the Beach. We have been there 3 years and the upgrades are really showing now. We took a tour of the newly remodeled condos, new carpeting, new stainless steel appliances, new granite counter tops, the works. They are doing between 2 and 3 upgrades a year, so do the...

We just returned from A Place At The Beach III and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this property. I'm not sure why this property has some of the bad reviews that it does. While our one bedroom unit was "tired" and could use some updating, the unit was sufficient and comfortable for our week long stay. The master bedroom had...

This trip was booked by a wonderful friend and was supposed to be a handicap accessible room. She and I both called that morning and verified the room type and room number. We arrived at about 8:30 that night and were sent to a regular room up a very long and steep ramp. My wheelchair would not go through the...

We just recently stayed here for a wedding. Rented a 3 room condo #202. My mother arrived a few days before us. She spent the first whole day cleaning. She opened the trash can and flies took over the condo. When she called Blue Water Realty, who we booked thru, they brought her some fly swatters and spray! The garbage...

Atlantic Beach is a nice and quiet place to visit. It's nice that you are staying right by the beach and can wake up to the sunrise and watch the sunset. Then that was basically the only plus I can tell you. The room really needs serious updates! The kitchen cabinets are old and dated. The carpets are old. The...
