“Nicest condo we've ever stayed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Stayed 3 nights in unit 1203. It was beautiful and had 3 bedrooms & 3 baths. Plenty of room and very well furnished. The only improvement would be more towels and wash cloths in the baths. Hope to return very soon.

This place is amazing! Super clean with tons of amenities including gated parking, indoor & outdoor pools, on site spa & workout facility and lots of beach frontage!

It's a little pricey but we got an amazing deal through vrbo.com and it was worth every dollar we spent!

Short walk to center of Pensacola Beach and lots of restaurants & shops.

I highly recommend these fully furnished units, we needed for nothing on our vacation! Will return here!

A complete failure in every way!
Booked a 4 bedroom unit months in advance for a 7 night stay for which we paid well over $4000. We were assigned to a unit that had 3 bedrooms, and one "bonus" room, which was not a bedroom, but rather an alternative living room. There were absolutely no window coverings in the living room, or the bonus room. One other bedroom had flimsy shades which hardly sufficed. The "bonus" room had not a bed, but rather a sofa-bed. Between the double sized sofa bed and no window coverings this room was useless. The living room could not be utilized as a bedroom as it had no sofa bed and zero window coverings. Gave mgmt every opportunity to make things right and their response was that there were no other units available, and they could send us 2 miles down and put us in two 2 bedroom units at Portofino. The paper shades they provided for the "bonus room" did nothing. We stayed because we had no choice, and the conversations with the onsite manager Jessicka led us to believe that they would do the right thing in making adjustments. They took $100 off per night, (and gave us cards for 4 free entrees at their restaurant which also left a lot to be desired) which was hardly compensation for the ruination of a family vacation! They flat out lied when asked if any of their units had at least minimum standards they had to meet to be a vacation rental. They kept asking us if we booked through VRBO and we had to keep telling them that it was booked directly through their office. (beware when booking through VRBO, apparently you will be treated second class) We were supposed to get cards for free beach chairs, which we did not get. We did not even get the proper welcome package which all other guests received. (we did get our keys and card in a nice brown envelope though)
Other issues: nice large pool in the center of 3 buildings, which number well over 100 units and yet there were only 27 lounge chairs! (dont think you'll get one unless you get out there by 9:00 am) The security codes & cards are overkill and ridiculous! To get into the fully gated propertys parking lot you need a code or card. To get into the lobby, you need a code or card. To catch an elevator (which is 5 feet from the lobby entrance) - yes, a code or card (after making it through the parking lot and lobby) To get to or from the lobby to the indoor pool - you need a card (not a code), to get to or from the indoor pool to the outdoor area - a card (not a code). Sounds like fun huh....especially when they give you only 2 cards for a supposedly 4 bedroom unit!! Overall the property is nice, but the units are no nicer than any other less than 10 year old property. The management leaves a lot to be desired. Beware when you book, be sure to ask what the bedding is (who would think you'd have to ask if a bedroom actually has a bed in it or not), ask if there are curtains or drapes, and also ask if there are television sets in the bedrooms or not, as only 2 of the rooms had tv's in them.

We had a 3br/3ba condo on the 11th floor with four adults and two kids under 3. The floor plan was spacious and we never felt cramped. The balcony was awesome... long and deep with an electirc grill built into the balcony big enough to cook for the whole family and beautiful views of the gulf and the pier. The facility was clean and well maintained. The pool was also nice and we never felt cramped. The beach in front of the resort was also well maintained and a great location... just a short walk down the beach to the pier and two a couple decent beach-side restaurants and watering holes. Overall, I would highly recommend the resort.

Room Tip: The higher up the better... there are two 3 story buildings in front of the main resort tower, so a...

The room we had was directly looking out over the beach. The room was very clean. Everything we needed to cook in the lovely kitchen. The pool is very clean even with the beach right there. There was no sand in it. I could not have asked for anything better than this for our Mother's Day get away!

My husband and I stayed here for a late honeymoon and the location and sky home could not have been any better. The condo was extremely spacious and I am certain we had the best views on the beach. We were on the 20th floor, and the Blue Angels flew home from their show on Sunday and seemed to be only arms reach from our balcony.

The room was very clean and had everything we needed from home. The indoor pool is breathtaking and the outdoor pool isn't overcrowded or run with people.

The beach service was super friendly and even raked the seaweed from in front of our chairs.

The resort staff was very accommodating and we enjoyed relaxing massages from the spa which was also luxurious.

Only a short walk from the boardwalk and great restaurants, we could have stayed forever.

Cleanliness, friendly staff, luxurious rooms, convenience, and the best views in town, all A++.

We will definitely be back.
