I first stayed at Water's Edge when I was five, and later eight years old, with family. Eleven years later, I decided to go back with friends. We stayed in room 1410, and it kept the three of us very comfortably. Master bedroom was very big, with a nice, large en suite washroom. The common washroom was very clean and updated as well. No weird smells, or stains, or broken equipment. Some pots and pans had loose handles but that's nothing to cry about. We lucked out, staying the last week of October, we had cloud-free mid 80's weather. It also had a mature crowd, mostly retired seniors, as appose to a bunch of wild teenagers and little kids being all loud and what-not. Ocean was very warm, and the waves were just as big as I remembered as a kid. The outdoor pool was sort of chilly as I imagine they do not put the heater on during the off seasons, however, the indoor pool was great, along with both jacuzzis. They had also in the past few years, updated the elevators, which I remember as a kid were super slow. We paid just a tiny bit over $100.00 a night. Try to find another oceanfront condo for that price. Also, it seems as though they clean the hell outta the room after each rental, because the cleaning crews were going at the rooms next to us (which had people recently check out) for several hours.
Things that I would note, on the "bad" side of things:
-At night, a few large beetles would fall into the hot tub, and some other debris
-Our room didn't have wi-fi, it DID have high speed internet, however not wireless. Some rooms do have wireless, however, along with the hot tub/bar area has wireless, so you'd have to go downstairs to use it.
-Cable in the master bedroom didn't seem to work on the TV, but we never looked into it at all, could have simply just been unplugged, or just using the remote wrong.
If you are having doubts about this place, please set them aside. We had an amazing week, everything was just simply amazing. If you happen to land a room you are unsatisfactory with, just go speak to someone in the office I'm sure they will help you out. If you get a room like I did and don't like it then you are simply just expecting way to much for what you are paying, go rent a million dollar home across the street instead.
