I have stayed here for 15 years as my in-laws own timeshare weeks. I have used their unit, which is a great unit in one of the newer buildings, and I have traded my own time share points and rented in other years, and occasionally we have ended up in the original building which is clean and okay, but certainly pales in comparison to the newer ones in unit size and comfort.
The resort is located right on the beach and has a nice pool. The restaurant, which is great for lunch at the pool, does not have the best quality food, but the service is quick and friendly and the lunch specials are very reasonably priced. They have a cute little playground in the sand at the beach if you are traveling with kids and in school vacation weeks it is definitely a family style resort. The one and two bedroom units definitely give you a lot of space for an entire family and it is nice to have the full kitchen when traveling with kids.
Other great things about the location is you can walk to restaurants, coffee shops and stores, you are a quick drive from the Aventura Mall which has a great movie theatre, quality shopping and good places to eat and it is easily accessible from both Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports (about 15 minutes to FLL and 30 to MIA). As it is located on Collins Ave. traffic can be busy in the area and it is not a quiet location.
Overall, it is a very good place to stay for a family vacation in the Miami area.
