You cannot access the ocean from this property; you will need to drive to the beaches, but they are within one mile or less. This is mainly a time share property, so you will be invited to attend their presentation. It was not at all a hard sell, but they do offer incentives to attend as you are checking in, and you should be prepared for this. The only poor service we received was from the woman at the Activities Desk, who obviously was not very interested in helping us get oriented or find the best beach but rather in selling us very expensive tours (snorkeling, etc.).
Large and very pretty property. Our unit had a lanai which overlooked the ocean (although the property is not directly on the ocean). The unit was huge with a complete living room, bedroom, dining room, lanai, two full bathrooms, and large kitchen with everything needed for cooking. We asked for a higher level room prior to arriving and they accommodated our request. The main pool also has a hot tub that overlooks the ocean. There is also a lovely, slightly smaller pool for adults, so it is peaceful. The main town strip with restaurants and shopping is within a 10 minute drive. There is a shopping center you can walk to with a huge grocery store. Staff was friendly and welcoming when we arrived; housekeeping staff were very responsive when we needed something, arriving within 10 minutes. They had a welcoming show on Monday evening that was the best we saw on our trip; it was very young children doing the hula with their teacher singing and a live band (her family).
