We stayed at Beach Manor 510, which is managed by Gibson Property. The location is phenomenal. The sand was clean and powdery at the beach, the water was clear and aquamarine and the area was not congested with tourists. The grounds at Tops'l were beautifully manicured. The unit we were in had unforgivably old and uncomfortable beds, particularly in BR...

Awesome digs...but über expensive, stayed here many times in the late 90s- early 2000s. Three gorgeous buildings, Beach Manor, Tides and Summit...Tides is the newest and best...nice powdery beach, pool facilities, numerous great restaurants nearby.

Only thing that keeps me from Excellent rating is that we had to clean cups, coffee pot, etc. in bathroom sink. We didn't cook, but drank coffee and ate cereal in our efficiency unit. And the huge Jacuzzi -- couldn't locate a switch to turn it on!!

The grounds are immaculate and the location is wonderful. The cons are not to be ignored though. The WiFi is the speed of old dial-up and hot water was non existent in the Summit building. The beach is beautiful white sand and the surf can be strong so watch small children closely.

Our group was traveling with children so we wanted the quickest and easiest route to the beach. Our request was granted. We stayed on the first floor in room 113. The walk to the beach took less than two minutes. Two pools were also within a minute walk. One of the pools have a bar that had some food and...

We stayed in the Summit building. We were on the second floor so did not have a view of anything except the pool and hot tub. Some in our group had rooms on higher floors with views of the sound. We were there for my daughter's wedding. The staff did an excellent job of having things ready for us. The...

The condo at Summit was great. Personally, I prefer either the Tides or Beach Manor because of their close proximity to the beach. However, it was not too far away and the weather made the short walk pleasant. I also like Topsl because it is close to the Outlet malls and great restaurants. The environment is well maintained, beautiful and...
