"Not Pleasant"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
First room was stained sofas. They changed room with no problem but second room had little bugs on kitchen counter area and floor in living room area. WiFi was very poor as well. Not worth the stay for the amount of money I was charged.

There are also higher-end rooms like the two bedroom Island residence, the two bedroom Gulf View residence, the two bedroom Grande Gulf View residence, and the two bedroom Grande Beachfront residence, which boasts 1,586 square feet, two private bedrooms, two full baths and a den.

Nearby Attractions – Beaches, swim clubs, golf courses, water parks, aquariums, and upper-end shopping are just some of the places to visit nearby. In addition, guests can enjoy water sports and fine dining on and off the property.
