The other beds where comfortable
And the furniture in living room wasn't very comfortable
Kitchen had plenty of cooking equipment
only negative was the living room furniture in this particular room
The pool is just big enough and we actually saw few people using it during our stay Not because it wasn't clean and beautiful
Christian was very nice & allowed us to check-in early with no charge
We always bring extra power strips when we travel for charging devices Bring extra hangers for hanging your beach towels and swimsuits to dry 3
indicating that they must not have been clean
Only drawback was not having a washer/dryer in the Condo
uncomfortable and sheets were full of sand on our first night arrival
Target and plenty of restaurants
The beach view is beautiful and only a few steps away Very relaxing vacation
We also felt that it was a safe area 2
but it was perfectly adequate
