Trip Advisor Review: great place to see the Keys!

My wife and I chose a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath unit for a 5 night vacation with our friends and their 7 year old over Thanksgiving week. We got an end unit in building 4 on the top floor. The ocean view from the balcony was great, the furnishings were adequate, and the free WiFi worked well in the unit but was not available anywhere else on the property. The living room had a large flat screen TV with a VCR/DVD player and a radio/CD/tape player. The furnishings were OK and the sofa could also make into a bed. The dining area is between the living room and kitchen and had a small dining table and a two seat breakfast bar. We were able to get extra coffee free of charge from the front desk. We took the smaller bedroom that had a double bed and its own bathroom (but no TV). Our friends took the master bedroom with a king size bed which also has a bathroom and a TV. The bathrooms include hair dryers, towels, and soaps. Daily maid service is not provided but they will give you more towels if you ask. Pool towels are also provided. The unit included a washer and dryer. The flooring was ceramic tile (no carpet). Overall, the unit was very quiet, fairly clean, and the air conditioner worked well and was quiet. The large salt water pool was very nice, the water was warm, and it looked clean. The spa is small (seats 6) but works well. Lots of tables and chairs are in the pool area. The pool is open until 11pm. Several bar-be-ques are located on the property with picnic tables and trash bins. Two lighted tennis courts are available and the office will loan you some well used rackets and balls. The beach area is small but has a volley ball court. (Unlike most of Florida, the keys do not have sandy beaches.) A small marina is available for boats but they charge by the foot. Parking is also available for boats on trailers and a launching ramp is available. A computer with internet access and a printer is available for about $7 for 15 minutes in the check-in area. A small restaurant and bar is located off the check-in desk. We didn't eat at the restaurant but we did purchase a pretty good key lime pie. The property is located about two hours from Key West, one hour from the Everglades Park, and two hours from Ft. Lauderdale. Plenty of restaurants are nearby. We tried Mrs. Mac's, the Fish House, Fish House Encore, and Taster's Grill. We'd recommend all of these but you might need a reservation as the Fish House Encore. Sightseeing included a trip to the nearby beach park (at the end of the road past the resort), the Wild Bird Center (also nearby), the glass bottom boat sunset cruise, a trip to the Everglades (bring mosquito repellent) with an airboat ride at Gator Park, and a trip to Key West. Be sure to check the check-in area for coupons for local attractions and restaurants.
