We spent spring break here. The decor and rooms could use a serious update. It is conveniently located near the beach. The resort has a nice outdoor pool with a water slide. I loved that there was an indoor pool that had an 8 foot deep end. It included a nice sized hot tub as well. There weren't many people...

The new management of APATB has made some very nice upgrades in the last few years—they have added elevators, a putt-putt course, and have re-carpeted the halls, among other noticeable improvements. We did not brave the outdoor pool or waterslide on our last visit as it was too cold, but we are looking forward to some fun times when the...

Nice, clean resort. If you need easy access, there is an elevator, however, if you are clear at the other end of the building, it is quite a walk to the elevator. Nice view of the ocean on the 3rd floor. Some bottom floor units may not have a view at all. Nice common areas such as pool, playground, grills....

The management was helpful, the beach is gorgeous, the resort is clean and the kitchen was well stocked. Yes, it is "old and dated" but many of us are too. There are many things to do and see in the area. We will go back. It was very comfortable.

We just returned from A Place At The Beach III and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this property. I'm not sure why this property has some of the bad reviews that it does.
