Because this condo is located very close to the water, oceanfront units have awesome views, and you’ll fall asleep to the sounds of the surf. If you want a 1/1 and you want to face the ocean, you have to stay on the ground floor, which doesn’t have as nice a view as the floors above the fifth. (Floors 3–5 have a lot of palm trees in the way of views.) The 1/1 bedrooms are on the parking lot side, but you can walk right onto the lawn from the living rooms. They have mirrored glass on the windows, so others can’t see you inside (during the day).
Most rooms are sold as packages, so you’ll almost certainly pay less than the rack rates listed. A few of the studios have pull-down wall beds, which increases the room size by allowing you to put the bed away when you’re finished with it; ask for one. It’s got a great oceanfront location, and the extra money for oceanfront is definitely worth it here. On this visit we noticed that most of the rooms have been upgraded to “premier,” meaning that the owners did a full renovation. Some of the units we saw were stunning, but you’ll have to decide if it’s worth about $40 extra plus per night. Local calls are $0.75. Studios (540 sq. ft.) are $265–$435, 1/1s are a roomy 1,143 sq. ft. at $360–$480. Penthouses (1,430 sq. ft.) are $465–$495. 3- to 5-night minimum.
