In the center of all the activities. Nice heated pool and jacuzzi relaxing. Has a decent size mini kitchen that suited our needs. Having 2 bathrooms is a big plus...

This is our favorite place for relaxation and recreation. The bed, full kitchen, full bath--great. The staff is wonderful and very responsive. The fitness center is available whenever I want to use it (instead of having restricted operation times). The beach--awesome! (Clean and beautiful) In-unit beach view--the best. Restaurants, shopping, and other activities are close by and convenient. This resort...
