Beautiful Complex, Beach, and Pool Deck
April 3, 2014
My wife and I stayed here for the last two weeks of March. It was a great place to have a long vacation. No car needed. You can be as active as you want to be. Cook yourself or tons of restaurants overlooking the ocean and intercoastal...all within a mile walk or bike ride (rentals available right outside the building) on the "broadwalk". This beautiful lighted very wide (thus the name broadwalk) pedestrian/bicycle parkway runs along one of the most incredible beaches we've ever seen. Dual colored aqua blue water with miles of huge white sand beaches (Hollywood Beach). We've been to Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico and this beach was as good if not better than all of them. The weather was 79-83 every day with a beautiful breeze so even with the sun out it was wonderful. The pictures show exactly what you get in the Condo, although it felt bigger than what the square footage says. The twin 20+ story buildings were a big surprise in a very good way. Extremely clean and secure with an elegant black wrought iron fence surrounding the complex. 3 Elevators were very fast. In-between the buildings are 3 stories of parking ramp that you would never know were even there...on the 4th floor, on top of the parking ramp, is a fantastic massive pool patio that overlooks the ocean and has two huge pools heated to 85 degrees. There were enough pool lounge chairs to seat over 200 people that were never more than 25% used at any time. Within the pristine, manicured compound are two flawless tennis courts, a basketball halfcourt, shuffleboard, and horseshoe pits. The beautiful colored fountain in the middle of all that adds to the beauty of this complex. Inside is very secure requiring a magnetic key to get anywhere including in and out of the outside fence gates. You can't feel any safer than staying at "The Summit". (The name of the Condo complex.) Taxi drivers know it by that name. Don't bother with the address. When you first arrive the impressive lobby and security guard immediately lets you know you are in a very nice place. Even though the complex with it's marble floor hallways is very impressive the condo itself is just above average. Has everything you need though including washer/dryer. The balcony does not have a nice view...this was probably our only disappointment. However a one minute walk to the 4th floor pool patio or a 1.5 minute walk to the "broadwalk" and that stunning beach...and your view is incredible.
