We rented Tennis Villa unit 3139 for a week and liked the amount of space for the price. The kitchen was nice with a full size fridge, stove and dishwasher. The beds were comfortable, but the floors were dirty even after we had someone come in to mop them. The downstairs bedroom vents did not provide any air, so my kids had to sleep with their door open to the rest of the apartment. No one liked the blankets, which were thin and noisy. but the pillows were very comfortable. We loved the ocean beaches, the variety of pools and the water slides. Food at the main pool was actually pretty good, which was a plus.

The view of the gulf from the balcony was outstanding and the location was great. The room was just okay. The bathroom smelled sour and the bed was incredibly uncomfortable. Not worth the price

We have been here twice now and love it. Food is great but expensive and everything is charged to the room so things add up fast but so much to do on the resort and great places to go just off resort within walking distance or rent a golf cart.
