Jetty East was chosen as the spot for our 50th family reunion. There were about 90 of us there the week of 8/6-8/13/17. It was a great decision! From the gated entrance to the centrally located pool to the easy beach access, we were all happy with Jetty East. Check-in was easy and getting 5 keys for my 6 people was a nice touch. My family stayed on the 6th floor with an ocean view. Yes, the elevators are a disadvantage due to being small, hot, and slow but that wouldn't keep us from going there. Our condo was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath and was perfect for 5 people. There were 2 sitting areas and a large dining area for plenty of room. The kitchen area was easy to navigate and having a Kuerig made it wonderful. From our main balcony we could watch family on the beach or at the pool and watch the moon over the gulf at night. The pool was a family meeting spot and was large enough for most of us to be in at the same time. The hot tub was nice but during the August heat, we didn't use it much. We had our family dinner at the gazebo and it was lovely. Glad to have the ocean breeze that night since no fans are at the gazebo and it can be stifling. The effort to keep Jetty East clean was noticed by all in our family. We saw staff every morning cleaning the pool; saw staff daily sweeping up, spraying off, and wiping down. I would recommend Jetty East for a family vacation but I would just let them know that due to being oceanfront-it's a bit costlier than most families can afford.
