This property is in a great location and has the potential to return to a 5 star experience. Here are some issues that need to be addressed.
* Reinvest in the condominiums. The general appearance of the interior of the condos demonstrates a lack of reinvestment.
* Have enough beach canopies and beach chairs to meet guest demand. The daily 8 am fight for a canopy is a bad process for issuing beach canopies. As is the $10 fee.
* Move equipment between the floors during off hours so the guests can use the elevators.
* Provide enough working cookware in each condo.
Have a nice time at the beach, but be warned: DOCUMENT THE CONDITION OF YOUR CONDO WHEN YOU CHECK IN AND WHEN YOU CHECK OUT. The condo management likes to hit your credit card with small charges a week or two after you have departed.
