My wife and I have stayed at OFP three times. Originally we started going there because friends have condos there. Note: This is NOT the newest place on the beach but the rooms are clean and the sunrise and daytime views are spectacular. You are renting a condo and each unit is owned and managed differently. The units will vary in quality based upon the tastes of the different owners.
However, this is a great location to base your MB visit. As a biker, I can park our car in the tight garage and get anywhere I want to go on two wheels. The beach is never crowded near OFP because you are a good 20 blocks from the heart of the Grand Strand and well south of the congestion of the shopping and restaurants in North MB. (But you are close enough to get to these places when -- or if -- you want to get there.) You can bike or drive to parks, Broadway on the Beach, restaurants, Barefoot Landing and other attractions.
Note: We rent condos through local realtors -- not through the front desk. So some of the issues people have reported in dealing with the staff have not been an issue for us.
It's about ten blocks to Starbucks for you caffeine addicts but with a stove and coffee maker in the room, so what.
Note: At the end of last season (SEP 2012) the pool was going to be renovated. Check to be sure it is finished before you book your stay if this is important to you.
