Can't believe all the great reviews and our room was horrible. Don't stay in #20. It's nothing like the pictures. When we checked in the said it was owned by their insurance agent and it was "really nice". The air conditioner ran all night, rattled and never cooled the room. The bathroom sink wouldn't drain, the toilet would run until...

We stayed in apartment number 24 a one-bedroom with ocean views. We stay at this resort twice a year and have never been dissapointed with any of our stays. Our favorites are the one-bedroom suites and this one was one of our favorites. Views from the room are amazing! We have three children and still had plenty of room and...

I remember when most motels on Florida beaches were Mom & Pop places. Over the years, age and hurricanes have washed away most of them. Most have been replaced by Hi-rise motels. A Beach Retreat still offers the charm and privacy of a more quiet time. The rooms are what you would expect for a place of this age. However,...

Immaculate with a sense of community. We stayed in cozy #26, perfect for the two of us and easy walk to the beach and drum circle. Great common area with beautiful Gulf view. Two different family members that we were visiting asked us how we found the place; they too were impressed.

I absolutely loved this place and am already trying to figure out how to go back. I was in #33 on the bayside - beach is right across the street and the unit is spacious and has everything you need. The beach is beautiful, great for swimming, shell collecting or relaxing. The public beach is close and they have activities...

Had room 41 very small but we were not in it much. Very clean, kitchen items were just enough for the few meals we cooked. We have stayed for a few years in a row now and will probably book again for next year. Nice to be near public beach for drum circle, always an experience and close enough to...

This was our third straight stay, second on the beach side. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Room is clean, and just what is needed for a wonderful beach stay. Have already booked the same room for 2018, and can't wait.

Visited in March 2017 for family coming down from Michigan. Very well located with easy access to surrounding restaurants and attractions. Located right on the beach with pleasant easy access to beach area. To cold for us to use the beach but sand and surf area was very active. We stayed in the NW building and room was very small....
