I admit, i was scared to to stay here after reading others reviews from booking with oseas and others but our friends we shared the condo with had already booked it...We stayed August 10-17... couldn't have asked for a better time. We booked thru VRBO and stayed in unit 1503. We had little to no problems other than WiFi not working which was on building end and fairly new Samsung dryer in our unit stopped working for a few days (neither of which was really the owners fault. Condo had excellent furnishings, very comfortable beds, plenty of space for 4 adults and 6 kids, granite counter tops. Very nice.. Booking thru VRBO seems to be the way to go. The wrist band policy is really not as bad as people are making it to be so long as you know about it going in.. Had to have it to get into pool area and back from beach but the people watching gates never hassle you as others have stated. The pool is very nice and even had on one night a DJ, speakers and lights set up for a club type atmosphere. Then another night a dive in movie on a big screen for the kids.. People complain about the cost of a wrist band to use the amenities like the pool but they need to understand that this is a condo community not a resort hotel (even though it felt like it) so the pool and other amenities is run by a management company. and if you go with VRBO you deal directly with the owner if there is any issues and not some third party property management company. Plus with VRBO it was one flat charge per person per week for wrist band. Not per day like others are stating. Oh and there is a ton of units and only 6 elevators but the longest I waited was 5 minutes for one. I'm sure its probably a longer wait during spring break season but had no issue when we went. Overall it was an awesome stay and definitely will be back. Thanks
