Let me start by stating that I am glad we didn't listen to all of the bad reviews. It really wasn't as bad as all of the reviews said. I do agree that there are some updates needed, but overall it was a good experience. We ended up booking through Elliot Realty and saved hundreds of dollars. We didn't pay for the linens or cleaning services, so that saved us. Also, we didn't get the extras such as water park and other tickets, but really didn't need it. I come to the beach to enjoy the beach not for a water park. I can do that at home. And in my opionion, it isn't worth it. To put things in perspective, my family paid the same amount for a very roomy 3 bedroom condo as my cousin did with his 1 bedroom unit (he booked directly through the hotel). I don't think he used the onsite water park at all. My advice would be book through an agency such as Elliot Travel. We still were able to use the pools and smaller lazy river.
Unlike other reviewers, I will tell you that we stayed in unit 601 and it was huge and clean. There were a few downsides, Elliot Reality falsely advertised 4 queen beds & 2 doubles. That wasn't true, the beds were all double. Also, room could use some updates. The beds are on the older side, the covers/comforters and pillows need replacement badly (glad I brought some extra blankets and my own pillows), pull out sofa could be replaced (the mattress was worn). The kitchen needs more plates and other utensils as it wasn't enough for a party of 12 (if you advertise you can fit 14 people, you should have enough). Also, they ask you to clean but don't provide any mops or other cleaning products. We had to buy our own. But overall it was decent experience. Balcony was nice and we had a great oceanview. I would stay here again, and make sure I get this same room.
