“We didn't leave to condo, truly enjoyed relaxing and spending time on the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

It wasn't my initial choice, the place I booked was being renovated and this was a sister condo. The lady that checked me in was very nice. It turned out to be a very nice relaxing vacation, had other family come and stay in a different room and they were just as pleased. We got a 3 bedroom (3 kids) and it was very clean with gorgeous view. We bought groceries, cooked ourselves and never even left the condo until it was time to go home. I would stay here again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The condo we rented through VRBO (801) was very outdated, except for the living room furniture, which looked ok. However, there was not enough room for 6 adults to sit comfortably. Also the dining room table, although adequate, was glass with very sharp corners, which caused constant concern with a toddler. One of the bedrooms had sheets with a seam down the middle. Decor makes no sense. It looks as though it was mainly decorated with yard sale and flea market finds. Balcony offered a great view but no table for outside dining. Carpet was stained and dirty. Unless this place gets a facelift, I would not recommend it. We loved the beach and the guy that oversaw the beach service was great. Pool was well maintained.

We will never be staying here again! We could not get our tent close enough to the water to enjoy the beach at all. The owner did not warn us that we would have to sit all the way in the parking lot if we want to set up a beach tent. We have children and rented for a whole week and they did not do anything to make us happy. Customer service is defiantly at the bottom of there priority list! We will not be back!!

The condo was perfect as far as size was concerned. Very spacious, full-size washer and dryer, and nice televisions. The pool area was very nice and it was a short walk to the beach. The downside: our condo was outdated and needed a thorough cleaning, and it really needs new carpeting. Another drawback to the Palacio was the ridiculous pool hours. The pool closes at 10 and does not open in the mornings until 9. My rambunctious four-year old wanted to swim both earlier and later than the available hours. As the other commentators have posted parking here is atrocious.

Rented direct from an owner (#603). Typical of most beachfront condos, but a few issues took away from our experience:

- The parking is awful. Limited spaces near the front with overflow parking across a busy road.

- Two elevators? Long, long waits. I can't imagine how bad it is at checkout time on Saturday.

- The beach chair service lines up a row of umbrella chairs right AT the water line, effectively taking up the usable beach "play" area for paying customers. Ridiculous.

On a positive note, this condo has a great pool area and is near shopping and dining.

Pros: Nice location, spacious 3 BR/3BA, full size washer/dryer, great pools and ammenities, and easy walk to the beach. Good value.

Cons:
Condo 1706 was dated and needed to be cleaned much more thoroughly than it was when we arrived. There were nasty bath mats that needed washing and carpet that needed to be replaced - and didn't appear to be vaccuumed. Tub wasn't clean.

Parking was ridiculous and everything/everywhere needed a different code. (Get into the extra parking lot, entrances to the building, etc.)

No indoor pool for bad weather days.

If one of your balconies faces the shopping center, you will hear loud, drunken folks and music from the bar across the street during all hours.

Ridiculous pool hours

The website lied about complimentary umbrella chairs

The condo is "wonderful”. It had 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. King size beds in two of the bedrooms and two double beds in the last one. (Both king size mattresses were just "ok". I like my mattresses very soft and they were both rather firm.)Tommy and Kate were easy to work with. We stayed June 19-23. The pool area is nice and everyone was very friendly. The view from the balcony is "beautiful". We did encounter a few problems but it was handled immediately. (The dishwasher was not working but a maintenance man came out that day to fix it.) The only other issue I had was with housekeeping. (I noticed a small pile of sand in the master bedroom on the carpet. Maybe the housekeeper rushed thru the vacuuming.) However, I did not say anything to Kate or Tommy about it. If I would have I know the issue would have been addressed but my dear hubby told me it was no big deal. (There was a vacuum in the condo, so easy fix) The bed linen and bathrooms were very clean. It was a nice vacation and Palacio 1006 is the condo to rent.
