Fodor's Review

This full-service 330-acre resort feels as lush as its name suggests, and with 18 swimming pools (one with two tubular slides), private restaurants and shops, a full-service spa, a nature center stocked with live animals, a family interactive center, and a 9-hole golf course, it won't disappoint. Guarded by a gatehouse, stylish low-rise accommodations are scattered over the property but are concentrated either near the marina at North Pointe or on South Village, near the

shopping complex. Dunes fringe a pristine 2.5-mile beach, and mangroves grow along the main road. Water on three sides give the resort a delicious seclusion, but trolleys take you around the property.
