My wife was down for a conference at the Fountainebleau hotel. Instead of paying the $400+/night conference rate there, we looked for a condo we could rent within walking distance. This unit was perfect for us with a good price. We were traveling with a 2 year old, so the separate sleeping area was nice for when he was sleeping. The pool area was also perfect for our needs and actually quite kid friendly. Since there isn't much along this stretch of North Beach, I ran up to Publix the first night and bought groceries for the week to cook at the unit. There is a small store in the Castle Beach Club where you can buy drinks, coffee, etc. The owner always responds quickly and answered all of our questions ahead of time. It is true that you can hear the elevator from the unit, but this didn't bother us since the sleeping area is at the back of the unit (with a great view of the ocean). If your expectations are in line and you don't expect this to be some type of five star resort, then it is hard to beat this unit for the price.
