I stayed for a week at this property. I admit by first glance...and by the reviews below that i was a bit nervous about staying here. i booked m trip before Joann..see below...and then saw her review so yes, I was not excited about staying here. I will comment on her description though. 1) who cares if someone feeds a stray cat...i saw the cat. Looks healthy. Thank you for caring for a helpless animal! Oh, don't bring your dog to a place that doesn't allow pets. What do you think will happen? They will refuse to allow the dog on the property and expect you to kennel it, like you should have done in the first place. The couch - mine was clean and the mattress looked brand new. You are in a hotel, bring Lysol. I have stayed in plenty of condos being an RCI member and I can tell you, they don't all do towel service DAILY or sheet service weekly. In most condos, you are responsible for your sheets and towels for the week. Not here! They come by daily and replace towels without request, and bedding if you request. 2) stealing-if someone is stealing your things here, then they are stealing your things from any beach resort. If this place has a problem with the homeless stealing then so do every other beach resort down the main strip. If you leave your things unattended then what do you expect? After staying here I am not really sure where you would "leave" your things and have them stolen. If you are out on the beach and leave your things on your towel then that's the chance you take, its not the resort you are staying at because you walked a mile away from your things and they got stolen. I had a wonderful room just above the non-heated pool. I had a one bedroom, just fyi. EVERYTHING was clean, and I am a bit crazy about cleanness. I did bring Lysol and sprayed everything from the doorknob to the remotes. I also re-washed everything in the dishwasher that I planned on using for the week. No stains on either mattress and the room was CLEAN! The staff was wonderful and the beach towels were provided for you. One pool was heated and the other was not. You are less than 5 mins away from broadway at the beach. And another FYI....if you pick a room with "beach view" then expect a "beach view". No matter where you stay if you pay for a beach view then you might get 1 inch of beach view before the next hotel is in your way. If you want a "beach view" the spend the extra money and get "beach front". So if you get beach front you will see the beach straight on. Beautiful view. Oh, and although just an assumption from working in a place of business...if there is something that is against fire code....the laundry room per the review below...then the place would be shut down. Oh, and the fitness center I cannot comment on. With miles of beach in front of you, I don't know why you would work out in a fitness center anyway....and besides, you don't stay at a hotel based on the fitness center. At least I don't. So, save some money and stay here. It was clean and the location was great. I will be staying here again. Oh, lastly who expects a blender in their condo? Once again, RCI offers tons of condos and I have never had a blender. At least you can ask for one here!
