My first impression was that our 1 bedroom unit was HUGE (bigger than our house) and very clean. The whole resort was very clean, and that is #1 in my book. The staff were warm and welcoming. We went on a boat tour with Captain Quinn and had a fun time. We bought a couple of paintings Lani painted. We weren't interested in painting them ourselves, but I thought it was really nice that they offered painting sessions. We watched a rocket launch from our back balcony. We didn't need to buy beach chairs because there was a wide selection of chairs in the parking garage that could be used and returned. We had a corner unit, number 41. It overlooked the pool, but we could see the ocean, from either balcony, over shorter buildings. We had a western facing window so it was always bright. I love natural light so that was a big plus for me. We liked it so much we are considering buying. We mentioned this to Alan and he was informative, but never pushy. Nobody ever made us feel like we had to do something or buy something. If you are considering taking a vacation here do it. You won't regret it

This was the first place we visited in Florida and we have returned again and again. A small friendly family run resort. The apartments are massive and very well equipped indeed. Car parking is free and there is direct access to the beach from the property. There is a swimming pool and jackusi. You might even get to see a launch from Cape Canavaral

Room Tip: Beach view are in demand but great

This resort is by far one of the most friendly and helpful places in Florida. If you are in the market for a timeshare this is the place!! One great view of the ocean and very comfortable accommodation. Call them and let them tell you all about their offer.

Although apartments are very spacious and rather well maintained, we would not go back and don't recommend this resort.
The reasons are:
– We fully agree with Dave and Missy from Ohio who recently wrote "If you are not an owner, you are treated as an outsider. From unit selection to garage parking and more." I sent them 3 emails (in January/March and October) asking whether we could have a unit on the top floor. I never received a reply! I told them, they apologized but wouldn't help and change our unit (3rd floor, no view) although we arrived 3 hours before checking time. But on their list we saw that they had attributed top floor units to other RCI people.
– Windows are thin and it's impossible to sleep well: you are waken up by people speaking loud, cars, construction work next door, etc…
– Our apartment was dark, we had lights on most of the time. This is due to the L shape of the construction. The building facing the ocean takes it all and there is also echo due to this L shape.
– Swimming pool is small and the hot tub didn't work and won't be fixed before next year!
– No equipment for the beach except a few old and uncomfortable chairs and umbrellas. You need to rent them from an outside company.
– Beach/pool towels are not free. You have to pay $2 per awfully thin towel and keep them for the week. It is the first time in 25 years I see that in a Gold Crown resort!!!
– No midweek cleaning (unless you pay again), not even a change of towels.
– Furniture is very dated and at least tables and chairs should be changed.
– The unit seemed very clean till we checked beds (see photos). This is absolutely not acceptable.

There are some good sides to this resort: easy access to the beach, excellent wifi, large balconies, comfortable chairs by the pool, Publix very close, staff is nice and they react promptly when something needs to be fixed, they work with nice professionals such as Janelle (excellent massages), Lani (surf and painting), Captain Quinn (boat tours).
