I visited Surf Watch a number of times over the years since it was built. We stayed there for the first time this past summer. We were in a 3 bedroom unit and it was absolutely beautiful! The resort has an ambiance with the marsh and then the ocean. The only downside that I can see is that the garden units are quite a distance from the beach and have only a lagoon view, not marsh or ocean. If being on site and willing to be a distance from the water, then garden can be a good value. Otherwise book Oceanside or Ocean Vista.
