“Perfect beach vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

From the moment I checked in everything was perfect! The staff was very kind and eager to please. The pools are well kept and weren't crowded. The views of the Gulf was exquisite! Looking forward to returning:)

Stayed here & had 2 rooms. A 2br & 1br condo for a week. The 1 br had no balcony & tiny kitchen but was sufficient for 2 adults & 1 toddler. The 2br had lots of room & small balcony & semi view of the beach. They said they had no beach view condos here. The was a walk carrying all the toys & chairs & ice chest. We thought we would be smart & take a cart. Well on the beach side there were no ramps so it was a task getting down the several flights of stairs. I did like the swimming pools. We will stay here sometime in the future but would probably skip the 1br if at all possible.

This is a great location....you have to walk across the street to the beach....just a few steps! Nice beach area.....chairs(you must pay!) A little crowded but we were there the week before school started in most places! The view is nice....early sun but nice in evening! Great kitchen....just saying a little itchy....not sure what was going on...beds comfortable but like I said a little itchy...not sure...oh well.....very nice location....2 min. from outlets!

Room Tip: East facing rooms get sun early....west at night....but I don't think they have any balcony'...

First impressions are everything. Mine, left a bad taste in my mouth and left me wondering what was going to happen on day 2. We arrived early, so our room was not ready. (Check-in was 4 PM.) We decided to leave our luggage in the lobby and we would go do our grocery shopping and by the time we returned, our room would be ready. Around 4:00, we were leaving the grocery store. We arrived at the resort and checked-in, grabbed our luggage and room keys, and headed up to our room with all of our groceries. Once there, we saw that our passage was blocked by cleaning carts. It was now about 4:30 and the cleaning crews were just cleaning our room. We asked if we could come in and at least put the groceries that needed to go in the fridge and freezer away so they didn't spoil in the heat. They refused to let us in. I had to call the front desk and explain the situation. It took about 10 minutes for someone to reach our room and for the ladies to allow us access to put the groceries away in the fridge. The lunch meat was room temperature from sitting in the hot sun. We were all hot.

When we finally were able to get in, the two staff members that came up just kind of watched us unpack our $400 worth of groceries for the week and one of them was nice enough to make a second trip up from the car with us. But, at that point, we were all kind of irritated. It was way past 4:00 and now we are in a room for a week that had not been finished being cleaned.

The bed was not comfortable, and actually the sofa bed was a little softer. They did bring us some matress pads that made it better.

If you want a cup of coffee, buy some of your own to make in the room because the coffee shop doesn't open until 11 AM!

The staff worked hard to try to make up for the bad first impression. Overall, Scott at the front desk was one of the best employees we encountered. He was helpful and very sincere. We will go back and give this place another shot one day. The location is awesome and the rooms are very pretty.

I bought into the Wyndham resort to try it. My first vacation was here. I was told I had a ocean front and ended up an ocean view. Condo was very nice, linens crisp and clean, bed comfy. Nicely decorated. staff was super if you could find where to check in. Signage is horrible so I drove, parked, went in and out to another place about 3 times. Again, I have to say the staff was super! Always smiles and very very helpful. The pools were horrible. Last night decided to find them all. The front one (inside and outside one) was so dirty the white tiles were black with crud. The hot tubs would have had more bubbles if I farted! 2 of the other pools were green with algi! Not nice at all. Would I stay here again? Yes. So now I have 3 other vacations planned with this thing we bought but I dont think I will buy into it.

This resort is great and the staff was unbelievably wonderful, but be aware this resort is the side facing building, not the oceanfront building. I was unaware of this. And there is a lot of confusion when people are checking in. I first went to the oceanfront building, then was sent to the Arial Dunes, then finally to the side building where the Wyndham check in was. I cannot say enough about how outstanding the staff was, and we had a 2 bedroom lock off that was fantastic. Beach was unbelievable, better than some Caribbean islands I have been to. We did both sets of outlets, and the Pirate ship with our kids, which was awesome. We loved the Majestic Sun so much we bought a Wyndham timeshare to come back every year!! Love this place. Great job Wyndham, great staff!!

Room Tip: Ask for a high room so you can see the ocean. We were on the 10th floor and it was great!! Check in...
