Just returned from a weekend trip with my husband to visit my son and family. After reading the reviews, our expectations were not high. We were so very pleased with unit 208!!!! The views were fantastic from the living area and bedroom. A balcony off each one with comfortable chairs. The unit had been updated with comfortable furniture. The kitchen... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Island Beach Resort several times and loved it.We love the proximity to the restaurant and the closeness to the beach, the pool and the grounds. We thought we found our Sweet Spot after many years of Florida travel. Not all of the condos are created equal, and we have had some stays... More

We stayed at the Island Beach Resort in February 2015. We were on the fourth floor OCEANSIDE in unit 404 a 1br/1ba. The units are privately owned condos that are leased either directly by the owners or through the property rental office. During our stay, the average age on the property seemed about 60. -The Good- BEAUTIFUL ocean view from... More

This review is pretty much accurate. I will point out again that all suites are privately owned and their style of decoration is up to each owner. So are the extras in each suite. Some suites are well stocked with plenty of extras. The kind and number of pots, pans and dishes are up to each owner as well. For... More

It is with very mixed feelings that I write this review. We visited the resort in early February with friends. We specifically wanted a condo in order to make meals and be able to share a common space. Let me begin by saving that it seemed very difficult to find a condo willing to rent in the area per week.... More

We stayed in 415 newly renovated and gorgeous. It is in intercostal side but the view is mostly parking lot. Great location, steps to beach, and shuckers restaurant is amazing. Summer rates are great. Next time I will get an ocean view room or only stay in room 415.

I have stayed at IBR for a few years. We get two rooms every year. They are never perfect but the stay is usually quite good. Not the case at all this year. My room had cock roaches!! Funny how the staff said "oh, it's just palmetto bugs.." And brushed it off. Google it. They are cock roaches!!! Big ones!!... More

You need to remember that all suites at Island beach Resort are privately owned. The front desk manager has no control over the owner. All suites are all very different in decoration, style and upkeep. Some are in need of maintenance. On the upside, you might be spending your time on the beach or at the pool. That is the... More

We stayed in two condos. 415 was a mess. Very old and junky furniture. The carpet was about 30 years old and nails were sticking out in some areas (which is just lovely...especially since we have an 8 month old). The second condo (108) had a great layout, but the kitchen was not well stocked (very few pans etc.) and... More

This is good example of what a difference a new owner can make. If you look at the review dated May 23rd and now this one you will see a 5 star review and a 1 star review. This suite 415 sold to a new owned and look at the difference between the two reviews. Now it is a very... More

We wanted to go to warmer weather in January for a week. We found this place and it's as lovely as the write ups said. The ocean is near enough so you can open your balcony door a bit and fall asleep listening to it. Unfortunately we didn't book early enough and had to stay part time in 2 separate... More

The WiFi system is inspected on a regular basis and kept in good operating order. It does need to be reset on occasion and the front desk needs to be told about a problem. A common problem during the winter months when Hutchinson Island is well occupied is the Comcast cables on the Island can only carry so much traffic... More
