Anyone stay at Embassy Condos??

About to book a condo at Embassy. Just want to make sure I am making the right decision. I'm a little weary after my experience with Ocean Vista last year.

Feed back please???

I stayed there summer of 2000, so it has been awhile. embassy is great-beach front, elevator to get all your stuff up to your condo. As long as the condo meets your needs, you will do great.

what exactly was wrong with the Ocean Vista? We have stayed at several different condos like to try a different one each year, why avoid Ocean Vista?

Rented from VRBO, and the owner failed to inform us that they were doing construction on the condo next door to us and outside by the pool area. We were awakened everyday to loud banging that went on all day everyday. One entrance to the beach was closed. The other entrance made us go through the dunes - no walkway or boardwalk - so it was like walking through 2 feet boiling hot water to get to the beach everyday. The pool is small and needs a facelift. There are no common areas at all. The condo itself was nicely updated, but the whole thing left a very sour taste in my mouth & we paid way too much for what we got.

Thanks for the info, hopefully the construction is finished at this point. As I said we like to try something different each year. We also live in the north Texas area, do you drive or fly down?

I also live in North TX, anad we drove to San Antonio and stayed on the Riverwalk the first night, then super easy drive into SPI. But we drove straight home, piece of cake and we had two yorkies, so there were frequent stops.

We drive, much more affordable, and we don't mind it too much.

We stay there almost every month and think that it is great. Well maintained, On the beach with unbeatable views, Very clean grounds, tennis and pool. Our family loves it as it close to everything, but not crowded.
