Fabulous Resort at the Jersey Shore
Stayed this past weekend with my husband and 5 yr old son at the Desert Sand Resort in Avalon. Check in was easy. We stayed in a efficiency suite. The room looked as if it was remodeled recently as it was very modern and clean! There were 2 flat screen TV's, apartment size stainless refrigerator, sink, 2 burner glass top stove, pull out trash can. The bathroom was nicely decorated and had all the amenities of a nice hotel. Plenty of towels. Bedroom was a nice size and bed was comfortable. Extra pillows in the closet. (We didn't get that at some of the Marriott locations we have stayed at). Nice love seat with pull -out in the living room area.
The outdoor pool was a nice size and very clean! It was surrounded with large comfortable lounge chairs. There were additional lounge chairs on the sun decks. There was a nice size heated indoor pool. We didn't use it since the weather was nice. Great option on bad-weather days.
Beach tags were included (with deposit). The beach was real close..practically across the street.
We had dinner at the on-site restaurant Fuze. We had 5:00pm reservations so it was quiet. We ordered from the limited menu (offered from 5-6pm). The food and service were excellent.
We totally enjoyed our stay at this lovely resort and plan to go back next summer...for a longer stay.
