We enjoyed staying here 6 years ago, so returned when heading to Keys. Facilities haven't changed much; flat screens might have been upgraded. Everything well maintained, daily, inside and out. We had Pineapple Suite, which is one bedroom with full kitchen, Sound view. Can connect for 2 bedroom. Beautiful view of sound side. Heated pool and in-ground hot tub open all the time. Nice restaurant across the street.
Biggest drawback is lack of internet connection. WiFi available outside, but only near office. Their idea is you should relax. Our idea is that being connected is an integral part of your private lives, not just our business lives. Fortunately, iPad 2 with 3G played Netflix streaming to TV (bring your own cables).
We stayed Feb 22 - 26. Staff was wonderful and arranged in-room massages for us (thanks Denise). Made reservations for Christmas week as we were leaving. FYI: Try to fly into Ft Lauderdale instead of Miami airport.
