This resort was disappointing.

Pros: It was walking distant from the beach. The bed, the pillow, and the soft down blankets were great!
Cons: Too expensive for the stay. Cleaning fee and resort taxes were extremely overblown and high. Smoking should not be allowed in the swimming pool area
Location: Resort was close to restaurants and activities offered at the city area.
For a resort, the building we stayed in was old compare to any hotels. The resort is still on a actual key system; the top deadbolt doesn't even lock from the outside. For the $95.00 cleaning fee, the resort only gave one complimentary toilet paper roll and one paper towel roll. When we arrived at the location the resort was on a different name, the resort is now named Horizon South. It caused us to think that we were lost. We heard the upstairs occupants running around constantly even after midnight.

The condo was amazing. It was well stocked and very clean. It is a short walk to the private beach, and has a lot of things to do on the grounds. We found this to be an ideal location in PCB.

Nice apartment to rent

This resort is more like a lot of apartments to rent with a pool. But why use the pool if you have the beach just over the road. It was a bit difficult to get the room key after 6pm arrival, but at the end I will not count this as negative. We had a nice fully equipped apartment. We mainly used it for just sleeping there. But I think you could stay with a family for more than a week. Freezer, fridges, cooking ware, laundry machine. Everything is in. Nicely decorated and a nice living room. 2 separate bathroom and a nice master bedroom plus a double bunk bed. This resort has the connection to the hotel across the road , so you can use their part of the beach, which is nice. We enjoyed our stay here
