My Mom and I stayed at the Holiday Surf and Racquet Club during the Christmas Holiday this year. I cannot say enough good things about the property.
First, location, location, location! Fantastic views of the beach from our large balcony. The unit was larger than I thought from the pictures. There was plenty of seating for our visiting family. The condo was well stocked with pots, pans, glasses and utensils. The breakfast bar area was a nice place to plug in my laptop and surf the net in the mornings. There was a nice ocean view from the dining room table which we enjoyed every morning with our breakfast.
There is a huge walk-in closet in the master bedroom which was nice for storing our luggage and hanging our clothes.
The staff was super friendly during our stay.
This is a great location. I will definitely stay at the Holiday Surf and Racquet Club again.

Our family stayed April 26th- May 3rd this year and we really like the home we stayed in. The bedroom was spacious and accommodating to our needs. It had a big closet that held all of our clothes. Plenty of drawers for our clothing too. The kitchen was a little outdated but not bad at all. It had enough utensils and dinnerware for our family. If you're staying for at least a week I would recommend buying detergent for the dish washer. The living room/ dining room was spacious and nicely done for a beach theme. The bathroom needs some love and care. I wasn't impressed with the bath/shower. It really was the only out of date thing in the condo but it was decent and not dirty.There was a decent porch that faced the ocean however we disliked the screened porch. I understand why they do it but we would have preferred there be no obstruction to the ocean. The employees were friendly and helpful for the most part. The owners who were residing at their properties were nice and helpful too. The pool was accommodating as well and my children loved playing there everyday is wasn't raining. Our only flaws about our stay was not with the rental at all, it was with the weather. We only got two and half days of no rain so we didn't enjoy the beach feel that much. We wanted to stay there because of the crystal clear water we had been told about but unfortunately since there had been so much rain and storms only one day was crystal clear. If it rains there is nothing you can do in the hotel except work out which for a 5 & 9 year old is not exciting. There game room was under construction. There is also nothing to do if it's raining for activities outside of the condo except eat, and play at a local arcade. Everything else is outdoors, or an hour away. With all the being said we highly recommend the condo and plan to come back during the summer time next year when the weather would be more appropriate. :)
