We stayed over New Year's Eve weekend (3 nights). Clean, updated, beautiful property.
ROOM - The room was spacious compared to a hotel room for the same price. We had the efficiency, but next time we stay (there will definitely be a next time!), we'll upgrade to a one bedroom so we have a table and chairs.
LOCATION - Loved the location (around the corner from the Waldorff) on the Atlantic side. Its "beach" was nothing to write home about, but it's a short walk to either Higgs Beach or Smathers Beach. It's three blocks from the Southernmost Point marker at the east end of Duval Street. We walked most places since the weather was perfect, but took the car a couple of the evenings with no problems getting around.
PROPERTY - The pool/lounge area is spacious and well done. The "veranda" around each building looks out over the ocean and has rocking chairs to sit and gaze. It's on the "quiet" side of the island, so we could enjoy the festivities, but then return to our room at the end of the night and actually get some sleep. ONE CAVEAT: The efficiencies are attached by an inside door to an adjacent suite. I'm assuming by the layout it's a way to add a bedroom to another suite. The door is not soundproof, but we put a big towel across the bottom (no threshold) and had no problems with the family staying next door (fortunately, the kids were in bed early each night). Again, we'll do a one bedroom next time.
PARKING - We rented a car (will probably rent a golf cart next time), and LOVED that we could park in the parking space under each building in the complex. Way easy.
STAFF - For a busy holiday weekend, they were especially relaxed, welcoming, and helpful. We got married on New Year's Eve and were sent flowers, etc from friends. Things were delived right to our room with a smile. We needed more towels, whatever, no problems. From reservations to checkout, our dealings with the staff were pleasant and cordial - excellent.
