NEVER rent unit 1504 at Water Crest!!!! !!!!!! Had to rate it 1 star because 0 star wasn't an option. Don’t be fooled by the pictures… EXTREMELY OLD, WORN OUT, UNSAFE AND NASTY!!!! We will NEVER use Royal American. Used them twice and both times we encountered pricing problems. Hidden fees surfaced when we got there to check in and... More

We just returned from a week at WaterCrest, Unit 310. It is a GORGEOUS unit, all brand new, it was gutted in 2013 & is now FABULOUS. Very bright, open, very comfortable. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay at WaterCrest. The property itself was well kept, clean, pretty. There is a small concession by the... More

This place is lovely. The booking process was easy. The property was well kept. The rooms are beautiful. Watercrest is an older property so there are a little stains on the carpet, but it's not that bad. This was our first time staying in a condo and it was a great first experience. The view was wonderful. We are ready... More

One of the best condos we've stayed at on the Gulf. It's right on the Gulf, has some of the best amenities...I especially like the indoor racquetball court and the tennis court. Quiet part of the beach and close to all the marinas and the state park.

Patti was wonderful to deal with. Could be updated and had to clean a little when we arrived Other than that everything was very nice. View is unbeatable. Spent a lot of time on the balcony! The building is very quiet. We never heard our neighbors. Nice peaceful week. Would definitely stay again!

The Watercrest is an older property that is beautifully maintained. It is the cleanest condo property I've ever seen in the area. The grounds are way above average in terms of landscaping and flowers. The inside atrium sets the property off from others, and the pool and hot tub area is beautiful. They also have well-maintained shuffleboard and tennis courts,... More

Our recent visit to The Watercrest unit 305 was wonderful. Our family had everything you would need. The view of the pool and the ocean, the well decorated condo and the friendliness of the owner, Marleen Hess. She was great to rent from and will again. We had 4 adults a d 2 granddaughters and everyone loved it. Thank you... More

Unit 410. Terrible beyond terrible. We will NEVER stay here again. Customer service is rude. Hidden fees, and nasty beaches. Alarms go off in the middle if the night. W went too stay for 3 nights, with our whole family, including a toddler. The very first day we arrive at 12pm. Checked in at the headquarters, we were told that... More
