Oceanfront complex on 2.5 miles of white-sand beach with 13 pools, 6 restaurants & a marina.- Google
"Definitely a family friendly environment and we can't wait to return."
"I would suggest that you can save your money and get better service at a Motel 6."

I absolutely adore this place. Such a relaxing vacation getaway. You don't even have to pack tons of clothing u basically wear swim clothes all day! But there are very nice restaurants on the island where you can get fancy and have a great time. This will be our annual vacation destination! Don't forget to take the kiddos to Scullys they'll never get bored. Well small kids at least!

The resort is very nice and the people are very friendly. Truly a place to escape and relax. The reason I gave it a low grade is the quality of the food vs pricing and the rooms. Dining definitely needs to be analyzed by management. All six individuals at our table were disappointed I'm the quality of it. It appeared to be reheated or institution cooking. The rooms are nice but definitely showing their age and lack of cleaning/maintenance. Our room the toilet constantly ran and the shower walls had mold/mildew throughout. Others in our party complained about the age of the beds or dirty sheets, etc. This is supposed to be a high end resort but I think it needs a wake-up call from the owners to shake things up and make it a fantastic vacation getaway again.

Staying in the tennis villas, which are actually condo units. Nicely appointed and comfortable. Bathroom is tiny and doors/baseboards could use a paint job but overall it's great for a small family. Spent day at pool complex on North point and 2 yr old had a blast. Waterslides, beach style pool, tiki bar, etc. Renting a golf cart is a must, or need to use trolley system.

Our house was adorable, clean, and accommodating. We had a private beach and a beautiful back porch. The property was well maintained and the view was absolutely stunning. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful.

A little out dated. I had to reduce the stars to three stars from my initial review. They overcharged me during my stay but agreed to make it right, so I left happy. That was May, this is September, and that refund has still not arrived (despite numerous calls and e-mails). Beware of the bait and switch and the overcharging by these people. Even when they say they will make it right, they won't. I won't be back.

My wife and I had a spectacular week here. The staff was top notch. From check in, to the beach and back everyone working had a smile on their face and helped out. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The pools were convenient and clean. Secluded but not too secluded. Family friendly but still cozy. I loved this place.

We are staying with friends for a few nights. They have a 2 bedroom unit (#3223) with a loft. This is a wonderful unit with a.terrific view and beach access. This section of the resort has beach chairs and towels available and set up, at no additional charge. Although it has rained several days this week, the lanai and great view have ensured no one really minded. We live on the mainland here, about an hour from the resort. We are enjoying our stay-cation so much that we are planning to rent this unit again in another few months.

Still good but not what it used to be. Seems like they are waiting for a new owner to come in and spend some money updating things and to catch up on maintenance. We stayed in the marina on our yacht and while this marina is probably in the top 25%, the boaters bathhouse is exactly the same as it was 25 years ago. The docks are nice but underneath crossmembers have rotted away. Many of the fire extinguisher stations on the docks were not lighted or lights were burned out. Throughout the resort I noticed many maintenance items that had been passed by such as burned out light at trolley stops and walkways. Also areas needing cleaning and paint. The asphalt roadway was terrible with cracks, potholes and other deterioration. They were doing some patching while we were there but what's needed is a new layer of asphalt. The beach had eroded a lot and given our access to beaches in Sarasota, Clearwater and the Florida panhandle we turned around and went off to some other activity. Renting a Golf cart to get around was 3 times more than renting a car so we rented an air conditioned car. Prices for water sports toys make a good cases for buying in Ft. Meyers and then giving it to a youth when you leave. We ate at the Pointe and it was the lowest quality meal during our trip. Fishy smelling grouper, warm salad and 25% higher price than everywhere else we ate. We ended up eating outside the resort several times and on our boat rather than spend more money on mediocre food. We will probably come back some day on a boaters rendezvous but really not worth a 100 mile boat trip on our own. I would probably feel the same car given there are so many resort alternatives.
