Came down for a week with buddies as part of a Condo-World golf vacation. (The company organizes a place to stay at nearby apartment/condo complexes as well as arranging for tee-off times for your group.) We arrived on a Sunday when the reception center is not open, but it was easy enough to get the package left for us in a pick up/drop off box. Got to our Condo which was located in complex 2, next to the larger Yacht Club building.
The first condo we were assigned to was on 1st floor behind the elevators. The huge 3-bedroom condo looked fine when we first got in but then we found a few problems. First, the WiFi was not working. Then we found a leak under the sink. Finally, the worst was that evening when we found we had a small bug problem (roaches in kitchen area).
The next morning, we went to check-in at the reception center and reported the problems we found. They were shocked and understanding. They immediately made arrangements to relocate our group to another condo, this time on 5th floor of complex 3. No bugs, no leaks, working WiFi, and except for a few old stains on the carpet from what looked like a spilled drink, all was great.
Later in the week, we got a visit from an exterminator, so we could see that they took the matter seriously. It looked like they chose to spray ALL the other condos in Complex 2 and 3 as a precaution.
So after the initial scare, things were much better...near perfect vacation in the replacement condo. These buildings are a 5-10 minute walk from the Barefoot Resort Golf Clubhouse, although you'll probably end up taking a car everywhere as there is not much nearby unless you cross the drawbridge towards House of Blues and the main Highway 17 strip. Great view of the coastal waterway and marina.
Good shopping at the Tanger Outlet center about 10 minutes down US-17. Walmart Superstore there too to stock the condo. Lots of good restaurants nearby.
