I booked 3-102, a two bedroom, waterfront condo, last summer despite some spotty reviews. I was rewarded with a condo with a drop dead view of the Pacific Ocean with thundering surf for a 2-3 days and moderate surf for the rest of my two week stay. The condo was great with adequate cooking utensils and nicely appointed decor. I wandered up to the tennis courts at 7am on the second day of my visit and was welcomed by Captain Bob, a courtly Seattle resident who owns a condo at the Surf & Racquet Club. Captain Bob and his tennis group were friendly and open to having a new player join the round robin of doubles. The courts are spongy and well maintained. The resort has a large pool which is refreshing with the right temperature. The resort is about .5 mile from Kalahaluu Beach which has great snorkeling when the waves are not high. I also took the chance to do some hiking and driving to snorkeling beaches.
