"My wife and I decided to avoid the hustle and bustle of a hotel during the New Year holiday. We chose this condo because it is located within 2 miles of the Beau Rivage, Hard Rock, Palace and other casinos/resorts, making it easy to access the entertainment offered by those properties. Several restaurants and a shopping mall are a very short drive from this property. We also appreciated that the property is located directly ON the beach, not across the street, so you can exit the property and be right on the beach (a nice feature if you are carrying children, ice chests, beach chairs, etc.). The beach there is spacious and well kept. The beach wasn't busy, but we didn't expect it to be during the chilly winter month. The view from this unit is superb; the master bedroom and living room have pleasant views of the Gulf, sunrise and sunset. The facility is gated, which is a nice safety feature. You can park in a covered, reserved spot for this unit. If you have a second vehicle, it must be parked outside the gated parking lot where there are far fewer spots. There were ample carts available, making it easy to transfer our possessions from the car to the condo. All of the instructions for accessing the key to the unit and checking in were clear and delivered promptly a week prior to our arrival. We were checked in and moved into the unit within 10 minutes. The condo is clean, spacious enough for 4 guests to relax comfortably, and more than adequate for 2 guests. The overall property is well maintained. Although we didn't use them, there are two pools (one heated) which are well-maintained and have ample deck space in case it is ever crowded. The gym is relatively small, but adequate, and has a sauna. If you prefer to dine in, the unit has everything you need from appliances to utensils. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable. We did not use the spare bedroom. It was quiet during the evenings, so no problems with noise disrupting sleep. I should comment, however, that (from the looks of the parking lot), the property was, as expected, nowhere close to full occupancy at this time of year. I thought the price point, certainly relative to the nearby hotels, was appropriate. We would definitely consider staying here again. And although it doesn't relate to this property, I'd like to make a special mention of the SMOKE-FREE Palace Casino & Resort, which was heavenly compared to the smoke-filled other casinos."
