I was very pleased with the room. The property was nice, especially the bar down by the water. The asphalt could stand to be resurfaced in areas and one of the tennis courts had a big puddle off to the side court. Not a problem for me since I don't play tennis. Overall I was really happy with the place. The only real complaint was noise. The door didn't seem to block out hallway noise and I had some noisy neighbors early in the morning. Not too big a deal for me though. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much JT for your amazing review. We are so happy you all enjoyed your vacation. I agree with you...we are in the process and refinishing the drive way. The Waterfront Point bar is amazing place to watch the Sunsets. We look forward to seeing you all back again real soon!

The positives: the rooms are nicely decorated, and the lobby of the 100 building is very inviting and well decorated. The bar and pier area is so nice. We loved the view and enjoyed the hammocks. The negatives: The pool needs to be renovated. The whole pool area feels stuck in the 80's. Also, our room needs touching up. The paint is chipping g and there are scratches on the walls. Also, the shower was not clean when we checked in and there was dust all over the mirror in the bedroom wall. And dust was all over the TV area and the bedposts. Housekeeping was not up to par.

This is not a 5 start resort but it is a very strong 4. The value is incredible. The location is perfect and nestled within thick lush landscape. Walk to nearby restaurants and bike a few miles to gorgeous Sombrero Beach. Enjoy!!

Hello Paul, When you arrived you requested a third bed because you had three guys in a room. I accommodated your wish. You went to the building and could not find the room and I explained and showed you on the map where the room in building three was located. I offered to walk down and show you. The property has 24/7 security and if a toilet is clogged we have a night security that handles room problems. I left at 10:30 and had not received a call from your room. Robert arrived at 10:00 to handle any guest issues throughout the night. You told me that you were leaving early in the morning to go fishing. "How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it"
