We just had a rally of 24-26 Rv’s for two or more nights each. The office was pleasant to book. However a few of our group were not treated in a friendly manner. It appears this is not a resort that is owned and run by a company. It is personally owned lots rented under the resort name. Our friends were told one thing about parking but the owners association did not agree and sent security to let them know the President of their HOA wanted them to move. Then with bad weather we inquired about a room space for a potluck dinner. $50for three hours/ $150 minimum. Most places have been complimentary, or a reduced rate for booking such a large function. No such luck. We paid and when we were almost at three hours they sent in security to make sure we cleared out. The security guy even opened the fridge, grabbed a beer of ours and walked out with it. We did leave it cleaner than we found it so that should appease them. It’s in a great area but they are high priced for roads with potholes, a hot tub that doesn’t work properly, and bathrooms that could be cleaner but hey, they do pick up your trash in the morning.

My husband and I stayed in one of the park model units at Bryn Mawr this past week. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Pros: - Friendly office staff - Maintenance crew stays on top of trash pick up and property issues - Four beach access gates/ramps - Two pools and hot tub on property - All property facilities (restrooms, showers, laundry room, etc.) were kept very clean - Dog park up front Cons: - The free wifi did not work the entire time we were there - Guests are "nickel and dimed" for too many things (fee for washing your car, fee for upgraded wifi, fee for visitors, etc.) - While staff was very friendly, they were not exactly helpful - Continuous problems opening the locked gates leading to/from the beach - The main pool was closed on a hot Saturday for maintenance - The sites are VERY small with no elbow room in-between. RVs were packed in like sardines.

We have stayed here twice..both times were quite a challenge to get our 40 foot camper in place..sites are tight, and roads are skinny. But we did get in, and the struggle was worth it. Both sites we stayed at had nice separate covered deck, with a picnic table. The beach is right there, with secured gates so no need have to worry about others coming in off the beach. Our only complaint is the hot tub was not working both times we were there. We hope to come back a third time!

We have been staying at bryn Mawr Campground for the past couple of years. It's close to restaurants, grocery and Old Town St. Augustine. A huge swimming pool out front and a smaller pool and hot tub for adults only. Just a few feet from the beach!

I called on Sunday June 23rd, looking for a last minute reservation, to which unit #56 was available. I told the office that I had 3 children (2 teens and a 7 year old) coming along with my husband and myself. She said it was not a problem. She looked at the unit and stated that it had a bedroom, a pull out couch and a den with a futon. I also told her that we would probably be bringing 2 cars - there is an extra $5 per night fee to park the extra car. I also inquired as to the distance of the unit to the beach landing, due to my husband's disability status - she stated that is was very close - I was only looking at the map. On arrival, the office staff was very pleasant - no issues, however when we arrived at the unit, there was only 1 parking space available, but neither of our vehicles fit on it, because it was in front of the only steps and access to the porch. While my husband and kids unload, I went back to the office to ask where we are supposed to park - but both office staff stated that there was no parking available and I could park out beside the road (A1A). I was not in agreement with that, as I had paid extra for a parking space that did not exist. They finally found a unit that would not have a vehicle for that night and stated that I could park there. I returned to the unit, to discover that it only had a queen in the bedroom and a mini-pullout sofa - no den - and no where for the kids to sleep. We were trying to figure it out when the kids got excited and wanted to head on down to the beach . The unit was not even close to the beach - it was the next to last in line away from the beach and my husband was not able to make the trek safely. It was also discovered at that time that the sliding glass doors did not work - so we all had to walk down the narrow hall way, maneuver around the tight fitting bed and through the bedroom door at all times. The office was closed. We decided to return home that night, because the kids were so disappointed - and luckily we lived relatively close. The next morning, we returned with only 1 kid in tow and I stopped in to discuss the matters with the office staff: 1) the lack of the extra bed 2) the safety concern regarding the sliding glass door that didn't open 3) the lack of a parking space, that was paid for and didn't exist. Their only response was that the unit is designed for 4 people, although I had made it clear that we had 3 kids in tow. There was no refunds, no exceptions and she had a lack of interest in our concerns. She did send the maintenance man down to inspect the door, which he confirmed the rollers on the bottom were compromised, not to attempt to use the door. To repair it. would consist of the entire frame being removed for 1-2 days. We never heard back from anyone regarding this. We turned the keys in 24 hours early due to lack of respect, misinformation, and total disappointment in the overall experience.
