“Old but OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2011

This is an RCI Exchange. Some good news and some so-so news. The good news is as a previous writer states, the location is really great. There are some upscale condos across the street on Ocean Blvd.that don't have the view. Sitting on a small strip of land, you have a great view of the bay. Both the "master" bedroom-located on the south-side and the "Guest bedroom" --which is located on the north side have great views with balconies, and both are spacious. They have 2 flat screen TV's--one in the living area--very nice; and one in the Master BR. The guest BR has an older TV. Many RCI exchanges will not have a TV in the guest BR. We were in one of 5 townhouses--which are pretty neat, with the BR upstairs and the Living area--of course--down stairs.. The furniture throughout is a bamboo motif.. The only facility on this little strip of land is this CONDO. Very quiet--and great views-
The not so good is the facility is 45 years old, and though some areas have been "updated" to a degree, it is STILL 45 years old. But there are bikes to rent--free--; central laundry area that is free; and a pool.l

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2010

This property is in a beautiful location. It's built on a little strip of land which juts out into the inter-coastal waterway at Lake Worth.

We had a 2 bed 2 & 1/2 bath townhouse. The downstairs of the property was in quite good condition, with a reasonable kitchen and a large flat screen TV. However was not so good - both the bedroom blinds didn't close properly, one of the bedroom balcony doors was unusable and the showers weren't powerful. Also the beds in the 2nd bedroom squeaked, it just looked in general need of some TLC.

The pool area was attractive, with a dock to fish from and BBQs for guest use, pool itself is small but it's still a great area. There is also a laundry room for guest use 5 days a week, and wi-fi for $15 per week. The public beach is only 5 mins walk away, or you can drive and pay for parking.

One problem is that you can't check-in until 4pm Saturday, and then about 60-90 mins after that the staff shut up and leave until Monday. Therefore if you do have any problems there isn't anyone to assist. We met two different employees, one was great, and the other quite unfriendly.

Overall these appartments have a fantastic position, they just need a bit of updating and they could be amazing.

This timeshare is quite a find. It is on the island, across from Lake Worth, on a jette, jutting out into the inland waterway. There is water on three sides. The views are great from every room. It looks like it was an old hotel where rooms were combined up into suites with kitchens, living room, dining room, bedroom, bath. We had a second floor room with sliders to a porch out of both the bedroom and living room. There is a nice pool area at the end of the hotel with water on three sides.There are a couple of gas grills for cookouts and a nice brick patio with sun chairs and tables. Past the pool was a dock you could fish from and they have a charter boat to take you fishing for a price. Although the building was old (probably grandfathered to be able to get so much building onto that little jette) the units were all completely refurbished. Excellent condition overall. The whole place is a block from a public beach / park with tennis and restaurants.

On the down side is that there is little grounds to speak of. You're out on a jette, right? And the staff is friendly but limited and hard to find. There is no early check in. Our flight arrived at noon and the office was locked up right up until 4pm. The clothes dryers took forever to dry our clothes. Our t.v. remotes didn't work and following the instructions on how to reprogram them didn't work either.

Across the bridge, in Lake Worth, there is a small section of town with a variety of restaurants that were reasonable and fun. There are some iffy neighborhoods between the island and Rt 95. Kind of safe looking during the day but we saw a lot of crime activity and police at night. Of course, driving the islands north offers some spectacular mansion viewing and ocean views.

I would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — Location on water and views and condition of unit (ex)
  • Disliked — Lack of available staff or manned office.
