Staff was not very friendly. The pull out bed was horrible. You could feel the springs. Washed our clothes and the washer left black stuff on our daughter's swimsuit. Had a broken broom. No way of sweep the sand off the floor. The bed was very uncomfortable. Would never recommend this place to anyone. We had a wonderful time in... More

We booked our room for Memorial Day weekend through a booking agency on the internet - maybe bookit.com or something similar. When we arrived we could not get in the gate, there was no attendant and another guest had to come put in a code for us. When we arrived the front desk was not open (and is NEVER open!).... More

I enjoyed my stay clean room and loved to view from the balcony. If I had to find something wrong I would say the TV and furniture were outdated but for the little time we stayed in the room it didn't matter. Overall great experience and loved to pools especially the heated pool.

This year's stay was similar to all in years past, excellent! Although the weather sucked the week we were there, the property and rooms were immaculate. This is a great place to spend quality time with the family!!! Close walk to the beach and a short drive to everything!!

Unit 314. What a spectacular condo. Booked through VRBO, which was a great experience in itself...owner provided all necessary info and more. Condo has all the luxuries...see the pics on VRBO. Back porch is huge and overlooks lagoon pool. Our 14 month old loved it. Great breeze. Don't be concerned that this condo isn't "on" the beach. It is an... More

We booked our condo through VRBO and stayed on the 6th floor in an end unit. It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. There were many evenings that we enjoyed on the large double balcony. Make sure you book a 3B/BA as they are so spacious and comfortable. We were concerned about the walk to the beach, however it really... More

Overall, our family had a good weekend stay. We stayed on the 3rd floor. Upon arrival, we quickly learned that the elevator is really slow... We found ourselves using the stairs during most of the time because it was way faster than waiting for the elevator. The living room carpet had sunflower seed shells on it from previous guests.

We visited Sterling Shores in 2005 and would come back twice a year. We have not returned until this past Memorial Day and unfortunately, this will probably be our last time staying here. The grounds and pool area are still kept up very nicely, however, the staff working inside the condo office are not pleasant, and our room was a... More
