Beautiful Beachfront Condo
This is the 3rd time we've stayed at this resort. It just keeps getting better every trip. But first, the condo... Gorgeous and recently remodeled. Stone floors, granite countertops, free WORKING wifi (decent speeds), Wall mounted Flat-Screen, comfortable beds, NICE linens and pillows, AC units in each room. Not sure how we missed this last time, but the entire wall on the bottom floor folds open. We had 1 day that really rained. We just opened the entire wall and enjoyed it from the family room. By all means, reserve a dinner on the beach. They setup Tiki torches, linen covered tables and lighting just for our group of 6. Food was very good and not expensive for the experience. I think it was about 35-40 depending on what you ordered, but included appetizers and dessert as well. (tax and tip come to I believe 23% of the bill, so just know that up front. They told us ahead of time).
Also new this trip was an assortment of water sport equipment. 2 very high quality body boards, a foamish surfboard, kayak for 2, and 2 very high end paddle boards. The paddles are adjustable, which I hadn't seen before, but worked well. Important because paddle length is a big issue.
I think the gym was open last time we stayed here, but I had never gone. It's on the far end of the condos (2nd story) with floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides. The equipment is good. Standard treadmill, ellipse, and bikes. (2 of each as I recall). There are also a multi-purpose lifting, bench, pulldown machine, bowflex dial-a-weights and several other items. There's a Bose iPod dock speaker system in the gym as well (we had to prop up the iPhone a little to get it to work, you're milage may vary)
The staff was all very helpful. There are quite a few of them all around the resort. A lot of them are doing small maintenance tasks like cleaning up the beach, landscaping, working on the new pool, etc. But if you stop and ask them to help you they will.
We're already planning another trip next year. This time we'll be bringing the kids with us. If you have a party of 4-6 you really can't do better on the beach. We've also stayed at 'The Beachhouse Flamingo" which is great for a larger group but it's too much for only 2 couples.
Thanks again for another great week. We'll be back again!
