First the amazing - you are right on a beautiful warm water beach with great views. As a lifelong devotee of beaches - Atlantic, Gulf, California Pacific, and Hawaiian - I was pleased and impressed with the one here. Also, there are many pools both indoor and outdoor including a pair of lazy rivers. And while there were many people at the resort the pools never felt 'overcrowded'.
The room itself - a 1BR oceanfront w/murphy bed - was spacious if a bit dated. Actually the bathroom and kitchen were in good shape but not the furnishings. I was really glad the living room had a murphy bed as the sofa bed was old and tired. But the full kitchen and laundry in the room were much appreciated.
Some of the quirkyness stems from how the building is situated on the site. There is no underground area and the parking garage is across the street. So the ground floor is a loading/unloading 'garage' and the lobby is one floor up. And some of it stems from it's 'not quite a condo, not quite a hotel, not quite a resort' nature. There is a restaurant and bar onsite but not a sundry store. The restaurant was just OK - at least it wasn't overpriced - and was never crowded.
All that said...I would absolutely stay here again. I would just stop by a supermarket on the way.
