Having made our reservations last fall, we had not read the February 2010 review, because if we had, we probably wouldn't have stayed at this property.
The street construction is finished, the pool clean. However, everything else they said holds true. We traveled with another couple, so occupied both levels. Upper level: Vinyl toilet seat still cracked in an uncomfortable place; bathroom sink pipe still held together with February traveler's duct tape (we assume it is still their duct tape); sink still falls off wall with slightest provocation; amoire drawers falling apart; shower curtain rusty and moldy, sheets pilly and thin; lamp beside bed has no light bulb; Lower Unit: microwave does not seem to heat food; push pump for water jug unusable; no working clocks (a couple of broken ones); armoire drawers a wreck; sheets so thin you can see through them.
Door locks are also an issue. A dead bolt would make them more secure; the upper level key is almost impossible to remove from the lock.
On a positive note, the view from the upper level is spectacular, the refrigerator nice and new on upper levelb, beds are comforable; pool refreshing; privacy garden appreciated; upper unit very clean; property manager helpful.
None of the issues mentioned are insolvable, and with some refurbishing, this would be a stellar property!
