The location on the beach was wonderful and there were some really marvelous restaurants nearby. The condo itself was very clean and the appliances were new. While not plush, it was a terrific spot for a vacation stay. The layout was a little strange, with the front door leading right into the bedroom and the adjoining bedroom of the two bedroom suite also right in the master bedroom but it worked out fine and gave us a beautiful view of the beach and great sunsets. Unfortunately, the lock on the outside door of the adjoining room did not work properly and we got locked out on New Year's eve. It took some time, but the emergency number was answered and they helped us gain access to the room. Also, there was hardly any silverware in the drawer; but, again, the accommodating staff provided what we needed. The fitness center was about a block away but was well appointed, clean and available 24 hours a day, which we enjoyed.
