We started out with 1 night and stayed for 4! It is an older property and the owners are currently doing some updating. I would look at the room before you choose one. We will be back, it is very pet friendly! Heather, Ashton and the rest of the staff were great and so accommodating! Great heated pools, fun tiki bar and so many planned activities. We stayed in their regular room (163) ocean front! The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Yes the dressers can stand replacement. It was great to walk out to our patio table and see and hear the ocean. If you are staying longer I would suggest getting a ground floor kitchen room, little more room and you can cook. They are bare minimum on items like hand towels, hanger and soap. Thanks Sandpiper we had a nice stay!

Stayed: February 2016, travelled as a couple

We have been to this resort for 10 yrs and love it! It is a friendly place and lots to do with kids! You don't have to leave to be able to enjoy everything! The staff are amazing and we really enjoy coming every yr! The only thing I can say is that the prices go up every yr and is getting to the point we might not return!

Room Tip: We enjoy room over looking outside pool with water slide

This resort is great! First I want to thank the staff for exceeding our expectations! Our room way clean well stocked and available early. The resort has everything needed so park your car and just relax. We stayed over Christmas and travel back home had some difficulties with flooding. The front desk staff was so helpful and we not only had a great room, they applied a discount. We were shocked and amazed the staff would take the time to make us not only comfortable, but now we will be return guests.
Pools were warm an clean, lazy river was a great addition and relaxing even for adults! Pool and beach towels were plentiful. There was plenty of free parking, a Tiki Bar, Beach side deli and a great restaurant right across the street! We can't wait for summer to return. Don't miss out on looking for this hotel, as it is not on the major lodging sites and you have to call for reservations. That being said the extra time you spend looking for the hotel and making reservations is worth the effort.

Room Tip: Check out the 3rd and 4th floor gulf view units for a great view!

Thanks for stopping by to stay with us. We're happy to see that your teenagers still had a good time with us, we agree that our family-friendly activities and amenities are more geared toward younger children and tweens than teenagers. That's something we could look into developing, and making sure there's even more to do for the older kids. It sounds like you all had a good time overall though, that's what we like to hear! Thanks for your feedback.
