    The island resort is an awesome fun place with plenty of amenities and things to do. Alexis assisted us with our booking. I can’t tel you how helpful she was. She made sure we got everything we needed and I received true customer care from her. I felt true hospitality and customer care from the very beginning with her. The beach is amazing. The beach has the most beautiful water/sand I have ever seen in Florida. There are rental for jet ski, paddle board, and parasailing right on the beach. You cannot go wrong booking your stay here at this resort.

    Great views and wonderful stay at the Island!

    Came down for a soccer tournament. Baylie was super helpful and informative at check in. The room was very clean and you really can’t beat the view from a Gulf facing room at the Beach House wing. Housekeeping kept the room spotless our entire stay. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the amenities are great! This is a great place for a large group to stay - our teenagers loved the pools, beach and karaoke night:)

    Perfect Florida resort

    Fabulous resort! EVERYTHING was just perfect. Great beach, great rooms, and food and drinks were easily available on-site. The swim up bar is excellent too! Staff was very friendly, especially Heather at the front desk.
