We stayed in room 204 at Royal Gardens last week. Pros: Great Ocean View Very comfy king size bed Cons: The room was nasty. The kitchen stove was rusted beyond belief. The cabinets were sticky with food debris on them. The shower in the smaller bathroom would not adjust and you had to stand all the way against the wall.... More

I rented 2 units this past week (June 20-27). I must say that the Maintenance staff, (especially, Sean),security staff and the Dunes Realty staff were most helpful and courteous and did a wonderful job attending to our every need. The unit 211 leaves a lot to be desired... The card said cleaned by Rise and Shine Cleaning Service... well that... More

The room was dated and dirty. My feet were dirty from walking barefoot on the carpet in our room. The ceiling tiles in our room were broken and hanging down. The air conditioning couldn't keep up with the heat. One elevator was broken, and it would take 45 minutes to get to the 16th floor. Totally unacceptable. The pool water... More

This place is dated and it's obvious that no one cares to keep up with any structural issues going on with the place and the room at first looked nice until we started looking around. A comb was in the bathroom with hair wrapped in it. The towels appeared to be used and not even folded up neat to be... More

This was a fantastic resort. We stayed in unit 704 and it was in excellent shape. The décor was very modern and nicely appointed. The washer dryer was full size and not the smaller units you usually find. The beds were very comfortable. The location was great. The beach was quite and not overloaded with guests. The overall condition of... More

I lucked into a one BR, 2 bath oceanfront room that still rented by the night (not the week) over Memorial Day weekend. The staff is friendly & the maintenance is kept up. I've been coming to Garden City for 20+ years & this is a classic. I'd suggest using Dunes Realty for your reservations. They have a LOT to... More

We stayed here in April 2015, returning after staying at the Waters Edge, two doors down. The parking lot has 24/7 security, no pass and you are not getting in. Our condo was privately owned, and we rented through the owner. There is cleaning service available through Royal Gardens, our unit was immaculate. Every unit is ocean view. Indoor heated... More

It was explained there would be an additional $95 Charge that Bookit keeps forgetting to tell people about. Started smelling fishy BUT....Do I want the room or not, everything is selling out on...
