Apt 704 has a great view but otherwise the condo was dated and dumpy. Old furniture, chipped dirty floor tiles, damaged walls, weak and unreliable wifi, old tv's, old bed, beat up dresser, poor kitchen counter space and junky cutlery. The patio furniture was junky plastic, the patio door cumbersome to operate and the window coverings very old. The AC/heater... More

Florence I has an excellent location with easy beach access. The beds (even the little bunk beds were comfy) and furniture were very comfortable. I did have the following issues though in #406: The coffee maker was broken (they did bring me a new one within an hour) and the speakers on the tv were blown out and distorted. The... More

We just returned from a week stay from this one over New Years. Check in was great, got in early and condo looked just like pictures on site. The condo was decorated very nice, cabinetry throughout was beautiful. Full size stove and side by side refrig. Lots of pots and pans and pretty good quality. Was disappointed in selection of...

The Florence I was very nice. The condominium was clean and had a very welcoming tropical decor. I had to call the representative regarding the Internet service and she was very helpful. I'll stay there again and would recommend it highly.

We stayed in Florence #406 for 4 nights and loved it! The beach is right there so there is no long walk. My girls would swim and play at beach all day then at night swim in the pool. They loved it!! The rooms are small but just right for 3-4 people. We will be back!!

It all started when we went to turn the TV on and found that it was not working. As strange as it sounds, apart from the wonderful view, we actually chose this particular unit because of the TV that was shown in the pictures. We looked at tons of websites of condos on the island when researching for this trip... More

I thought this was an excellent place for the money. For $450 a week, we got to stay more nights than if I'd gotten a hotel. The view was awesome, even though we were on a side unit, we could still see the beach and hear the surf...that was priceless to me. The room had all my granddaughter and I... More

We stayed in Florence #604. It was very clean and had most of what we needed. The furnishings left a lot to be desired. The sofa bed was not usable as a couch. The cushions didn't fit right. The bed was so so. The balcony view was wonderful as was the beach access, and there was on site parking, albeit... More

We stayed in unit 606, which is a one bedroom oceanfront unit. We paid $80 a night. The normal rate was quoted as $150, but we were a last minute catch and the pool was under construction. The location is fine, you are right on the beach. There is a small lap pool and jacuzzi for the building. The building... More
