My husband and I (and our dog) have stayed in this unit twice so far, and we plan to return again and again. I grew up going to New Smyrna every year for vacation and we always stayed in Hacienda Del Sol I or II. Both complexes are small enough that you don't feel crowded, but no so small that they don't have the amenities (pool, club house, direct access to the beach, etc.) that we prefer. If you do not own your own unit, it can be terribly difficult to find a unit that has a updated, open and beachy feel like this one as many units feel cluttered and small with decor from the seventies. Everything is quite comfortable - there is no carpet, so you don't have to worry about getting sand and water in it, the bathrooms and bedrooms are spacious, the decor is up-to-date. My only critique would be that the kitchen feels a little dark, but I don't cook on vacation, so that really doesn't bother me. The photos really represent the actual look of the condo, so there are no surprises there. Of course the location is great with a direct ocean view, no walking to the beach, and it isn't more than a couple of miles to all the best restaurants in New Smyrna. My favorite part of Hacienda I is the sort of landing with beach lounge chairs that is right in front of the beach wall - it is the perfect place to comfortably enjoy the ocean and read a great book. I am completely happy with this unit and would recommend it to any couple or family who just wants a great beach vacation.
