We went here for the party hotel with the best location. The location is the only thing going for this place. You can't bring anyone onto the property. We got a "penthouse" the walls were scratched up, dishwasher backs into the sink, shower is full of hair and turns into a bath. There's a washer/dryer but you can't get laundry... More

The apartments in this complex are fairly basic but were relatively clean and well maintained. Location wise it is based right in the middle of the busiest area. Overall, no major complaints with the property but there will be nicer places to stay in the area, I'm sure.

This spring break my friends and I paid eight grand to stay in the "luxurious" presidential suite to find disappointment upon disappointment. Right when we stepped on the elevator we stepped in wet urine that was flooding the elevator floor. The buttons on the elevator are swapped as well. When the open button is clicked it closes the door and... More

My son is down there right now on spring break - it is what it is. If you've ever gone on spring break you know. I am writing this review in the hopes the owners will see it because I had a positive experience and one of the worst experiences. Robert the manager and Amber Jones, head of housekeeping, were...

I wish I could give this place 0 stars. My friends and I paid close to $8,000 for the penthouse "presidential" suite. HA. Everything was dirty, you couldn't even wear flip flops inside because they would stick to the floors. People randomly pissed in different areas of the hotel (especially the elevator)...the kitchen had 1930s appliances and all of the... More

First let me say that my review of The Summit is totally from the view point of doing a timeshare exchange into the property. The Summit only has 32 RCI timeshare units out of the 137 total units in the 16 story building all scattered on differing floors. A very nice lady named Eve, which has an office on site,... More

The building itself wasn't too bad. It was dirty and always had to take the stairs as there are only 2 elevators and seemed like we could never catch it. The beaches were very pretty and there is a lot within walking distance. The pool deck and area was okay but was VERY overcrowded most of the time. A lot... More

Property obviously caters to spring break-type visitors. We were in a 3 BD condo which is very spacious with great views. Decor is VERY dated; seemed as if they were protecting themselves against spring breakers. Who installs new countertops on old cabinets? Ice maker dumped maybe twice during our 5 day stay. Elevators do not have AC; not an issue... More

We regret that your condo rental did not meet your expectations and hope that we can present a more suitable unit... More

The condominium we stayed in at this location definitely exceeded our expectations. The interior was decorated very appropriately for the setting. The walls were painted a sea blue, and each piece of furniture mimicked the scenery one would see while at, or near, the beach. Six of us fit comfortably in one condominium. The space had one queen sized bed,... More
