Very scenic place to stay. It is off the beaten path- maybe a 15 min drive to the Ripleys/wonderworks area. This resort is located on St. Andrews bay. It has a beautiful 1/4 mile walk on a pier that leads you to a restaurant/bar called Pelicans. Nice quiet place to grab some appetizers & drinks. If you keep walking past the bar it leads you to a little beach on the bay. Very shallow & safe for kids to play in. It does have a lot of turtle grass everywhere though. There's also a marina there- you can rent pontoons, jet skis, or paddle boards. Lots of boat activity on this bay. I will say, the guy working at the marina wasn't the nicest person I've ever met- I was asking about prices & he kinda acted smart about it & made me feel stupid for asking. The pool here is amazing- So large & warm. There was hardly ever anyone in it and we went during the summer! The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated. Had carpeting throughout- Really felt like home. The balcony was nice too- very impressed with our room. Now, here's the bad part... we rented through a rental agency called vacasa which apparently manages several rental properties in the area. There was supposed to be a key fab wristband to gain access to the gated pool in our room, but unfortunately there was no fab in there! We went to the desk, and they couldn't help us. We called vacasa and they wouldn't help either. Their answer was "the guy who usually handles this is on vacation". Niiice!! Real professional vacasa!! Well, WE were also on vacation & wanted to use the pool we paid to use!!! So aggravating. Finally, someone swimming let us in the pool once, but that's just not right. We should've had access to use it anytime we wanted to!! So, with all of that being said, it's a very nice place, but do yourself a favor and don't book it through vacasa.
