The unit is exactly as pictured with views all around. The staff if pleasant and helpful. We were traveling with our 6 year old daughter. A roll away bed was in the closet. She enjoyed the heated pool and spa and the fact there were enough kids to play with but not crowded at the same time. Access to the beach is short walk. The beach itself is very nice. We did not get a car and did not need one. Walgreens and Publix are a short walk down Collins. Try Norman's also a short walk from the Monte Carlo. I would definitely stay there again.
