We enjoyed our first stay at the Moorings very much. The unit was clean ,quiet, comfortable, and had everything we needed to feel at home. The staff were helpful and pleasant. All the units are an easy walk to the beach and pool, and all are surrounded by tropical gardens. We took advantage of the garden tour with a female...

My husband, two teen kids, and I stayed in condo #312 (2nd floor facing parking lot). The condo was very clean and in great condition and had everything we needed for a great stay. The pool and beach were just a short walk away and both were just perfect. The folks before left a piece of candy in the corner...

The condos were beautiful with everything you need to feel at home. 2 bedrooms 2baths. 50 feet to the beach where you find sea shells everywhere. The beach was endless. We walked 45 min in one direction and did not see the end. Beautiful pools, bike rentals so you can explore the great bike paths. A morning talk on shells...

This was my family's first time at this resort and we just can't wait to come back. The condo was clean, and spacious. The staff was friendly and positive and helpful with things to do in the area. Our condo was literally 50 steps from the beach. There was plenty of beach lounge chairs and umbrella's to use daily. That...

Our experience was very positive. The condo was recently redone very tastefully with a kitchen opening up to the main room, a giant tv, and comfortable furniture. The beach was out the door and around the corner. The pool was right there too. Will definitely come back to this condo. Only drawback was the very noisy gas leaf blowers which...

Just beautiful and perfect. They have so many amenities and the staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was so nice and updated. I really liked that they have beach chairs and umbrellas for their guest to use on the beach. Liked that we were steps away from the beach and only minutes from the Main Street where everything...

“Exhaust fans in both bathrooms should be checked - very noisy. Toilet in master bath should be checked - the actuating lever sometimes sticks and the water keeps running.”
