    Great staff in restaurants and check in. Bathrooms need updating. Balconies need to be cleaned when rooms are cleaned. Highly recommend a stay here for relaxing beachside vacation. Shopping and restaurants are abundant and just a short ten minute walk away

    The restaurant only lists breakfast and dinner - where do you eat lunch? Something within walking distance? We will not have a vehicle. Never been to this area of FL before so not sure what is nearby. Thanks for your help!
