This is the third year we have stayed here for the month of February. I don't understand some of the comments. There is a staffed office on site and I have always found them to be completely cooperative. There is plenty of free parking with a nice restaurant just across the parking lot. The site has been clean all three... More

The double charged us and will not even return our call to discuss the problem. No management on site. This is not a safe place.

I stayed at this property several times in past years and it has steadily gone downhill. The problem is with the Property Owners Assoc. heads who work so hard at screwing the owners who are behind in their payments that they are obnoxious in how they treat all "guests". Look at the comments and see the attempt to justify negative... More

More than 9 months have passed since this couple were a guests at Boca Ciega and there have been a number of changes made. First, a new management company has taken charge of the daily operations of the condominium hotel.......from grounds maintenance to rental office function. Second, the troublesome owner....really only one but with multiple units.....has been forced out by... More

I stayed for 7 days, pool closed 4 days of 7 due to black family who were arguing with the condo owners. Condo owners were upset with new management and told black family, "You People need to get out of pool due to noisey", I am a caucasion woman and I was insulted by how rude they were to the... More

Well back from the gulf coast area, we stayed here in 309 and loved our condo and view. Lori has done a wonderful job in decorating and has all of the comforts of home. The chesterfield in the LR could be a little larger and no stereo system. The bldg. itself is nice although the exercise room needs some fixing... More

Been to this area for years. Our unit was booked to us by the on-site rental agent TRS and everything was as it was supposed to be. Clean and well equipped. Like renting in a postcard, when the sun started to set. Spectacular view unlike any we have had in our travels. Peaceful and friendly, every morning we enjoyed our... More

Obviously this guest was unhappy but let's examine why. "Got a bum unit"........most likely dealt with an individual owner who is in foreclosure and has allowed the unit to deteriorate. "Called and they put us in a better unit"....tells me he did not deal with the onsite rental agency nor a major online agency. He'd have gone to the office... More

The Boca Ciega is a "resort" comprised of privately owned condo units that are part of a rental pool that is managed by a resort management company. The "resort" is not on a beach, and there are precious few restaurants within walking distance. In fact, there is little to recommend the location, other than the fact that it is situated... More

Fast forward to May 2009, 14 months from this review. Nearly 9 months ago, the former on-site rental agency was terminated for cause as our Association Board became aware of guest experiences like this. While I was not on the Board at the time, I apologize for the failure to live up to our guests expectations. To insure your visit... More

My husband and I just returned from a 5 day stay. Over all the place was very clean, the location is not very "walker" friendly, it is located on a very busy road. When we arrived the room we had booked was unavailable, so we looked at couple others. Be careful what room you have, the rooms located closest to... More
