Arrival at this resort was very easy. There is a guard to enter the parking lot. We parked at lobby area to unload and to check in. Parking spots for those staying in the Inn building are underneath this building.
Here is the check-in desk. (I was able to get pictures of a nearly deserted lobby when my daughter and I woke up super early to walk on the beach.)
These are the doors to exit out the back of the property. This can lead to the pool or beach, or the Villa buildings. Above the doors you can see the Green Cabin Room where they serve cocktails and lighter snacks. This was closed for a private event the night that we were here.
More of the waiting area and Island Grove Packing Company, which is the shop. They also have DVD movies here that you can borrow, which we did because it rained during the afternoon!
This is a fun area for the kids! There are video games, tablets, tv, and smaller chairs.
This little area dedicated to Disney Vacation Club (we are members) is nice!
Inside the glass containers are shells past guests have found on the beach. You can write on them and stick them in the jars!
Looking up from the lobby.
From the 3rd floor balcony.
They have this fun photo opp. near the entrance to the restaurant. (I told my kids to act like they were on the beach…apparently this is what they do??!!)
This sign was also posted in the lobby. And it is in fact true! We ended up with a few bites from our morning walk on the beach but didn’t see them until the next day.
Another thing I LOVE about this resort, is how it caters to families! This area is through the lobby and on the way to the spa. It has a lending library, where you can take/leave a book, puzzles, and tables with game boards on them. To play the games, just visit the front desk for the pieces!
I worked on a puzzle, while my family played Jenga and made some new friends. There were several other families hanging out in this area.
Inside the shop, and in the quick service food area, they had boards like this for pin trading like you can do in the parks!
Also snapped a quick pic of the Little Mermaid Dooney & Bourke that were available here.
Onto the beach! There are chair/umbrella rentals, as well as some water sport rentals.
We spent most of our time during this trip at the pool.
It has a really fun slide that is the same as the one at Old Key West!
I’ll say it again…WE LOVE IT HERE! And I can’t wait to get back with some family and friends!
