Quiet and peaceful. Great position right on the water. Good restaurants nearby and a walk to the Esplanade. The resort is 75 percent owner occupied. Gardens were attractive and the pool and surrounding areas very good.

Response from Shirley R | Reviewed this property |
We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
