I love that it was on the beach, the rooms you can tell are old, my husband and I were considering going back but what you pay for the rooms you shouldn't have to smell trash when you go out of your room to the hallway.

Great location. Walls were dirty and had the most hideous paint job I've ever seen. Scuff marks on almost every wall. We had to play with the front doorknob alot to get it to lock properly. Floors looked like they hadn't been cleaned in quite a while and it took all of 5 minutes for me to crush the first... More

The condo itself is very nice. Location is right on the beach and the room we had was great. Nice balcony and the beach area is nice. However, even though its not the place's fault, it was a lot of families, there was no one around our age. We had to keep it pretty quiet. Had a good times but... More

We just returned and the condo was clean and had new counters and tile floors. The room looked like it recently been redone. We rented through Book It. The condo was managed through Royal American group. We coule not have found a better place. No problems and if you are looking for a Beach trip without fancy-resort condo, than this... More

The location was exactly where we needed but this place is dirty. Our room had stained linens and bedding. Furniture needed to be dusted. The unit was very tastefully decorated but needed a really, really good cleaning. The trash chute is in front of the property, right next to elevators and smells up the whole place - almost unbearable. We... More

I booked this condo at Sunbird thru www.vrbo.com, and directly thru the owner is the only way to go!! You get to see pictures of the actual unit you are staying in, and you deal directly with the condo owner, not the management company. The owner sent us all the info we needed (keys, etc), including a free parking pass... More

My husband and I stayed at Sunbird 702E from September 28, 2008 through October 3, 2008. My advice to anyone wishing to stay here is to rent directly from the owners. You can go to vrbo.com and find condos all over the country. I was a little concerned about renting from the owners directly, but it was a great experience... More

We (my wife and I (mid-30s) and 11 year old daughter) stayed at Sunbird Condos 28 June to 05 July, 2008 and had a fantastic stay. I think that, as other reviewers have noted, the key to a happy condo experience is to rent directly from the owner. We rented unit 503 in the East tower - go to listing... More

My family and I stayed at the Sunbird in Aug. '08 and had a wonderful time. Check-in was a breeze and THE ROOM...WOW!!! We stayed in W1108. It was perfect, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped. The owner of this room takes VERY good care of it. It had a King bed that faced the ocean and was comfortable. The private... More

....If you see a good or even fair review then it would have had to been written years ago or by a condo owner.... Seriously this place should be torn down. It is sandwiched between 3 monstorous brand new condos that make it look even worse. The pools in this place are in the shade almost always (due to the... More
