We just returned from our recent stay at MarVista Grande. We too stayed in Room 1001. When we arrived we were told how beautiful the room was and how many people had requested this particular room. When we arrived in the room, we found that two of the bathrooms had not yet been cleaned by the maid service, hair and soap scum was left in the sinks and tubs and showers. Hair and dirt were found and noticed on the floors. In the one bedroom, candy wrappers, scrap paper, dirt, and other items were found on the floor. The room had not been vacuumed. The living room carpeting was absolutely filthy with very large dark dirt spots all over the carpet. We asked that someone come up and clean the bathrooms and they were cleaned quickly and also requested that the carpet be cleaned as well. There was a large orange smear under the cocktail table as well as the large black dirt spots....but the cleaning crew said they did the best they could but could not get the spots out of the carpet. This carpet needs to be replaced. The unit itself is very well appointed, very large, and really nice for a large family traveling to the beach. We were not as lucky to be offered a $50 certificate to the Tiki Bar...instead we were charged for all of our incidentals when we left without so much as an apology for the filthy rugs in the condo. In addition, the kitchen faucet was so loose, that it basically fell over when you touched it....something was loose under the sink and needed to be tightened. The deck was very large and had a nice large table that could seat 6 people with additional room for many additional chairs. The kitchen has granite counter tops, there is a full size refrigerator, a nice stove and over, microwave, and plenty of pots and pans to cook with. It is one of the most well appointed condos that we have ever stayed in as far as having kitchen equipment. Each bedroom has a flat screen television. There are 4 bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms, ... three of the bedrooms have bathrooms that they have attached to them...the fourth bedroom, will have to share with someone. There is a washer and dryer in the unit and a doorwall from both the living room and the master bedroom to the deck. The disappointing part is you only have a very small partial view of the ocean .... definitely next time we will book oceanfront. We stayed at MarVista Grand last year in an oceanfront suite and it was absolutely beautiful...no complaints at all....that's why I think it's hit and miss with the rooms. The end suites are wonderful because you do get a lot of natural light due to the number of windows that you get with the exterior walls. Keep that in mind. The property is beautiful, well appointed, the staff is friendly, but, some of the items need attention....the carts that bring up the luggage - some of them were falling apart, how about some pool towels near the pool?, how about the phone hooked up to call the front desk when you push the button that says "front desk?", this may all seem like little details....but, to a professional traveler, it's all in the details. Thanks!
