Apollo Condos or Marco Bch ocean Resort

Still finding alot of mixed reviews of these properties.. Not looking for anything fancy but I want to be sure to get something decent and clean and a somewhat updated. Only need to be enough for 2 adults for a few nights. Anyone have any suggestions on rooms at either of these? Does anyone know if the March Beach Ocean Resort sits quite a ways from the gulf? Thank You

The above link will (hopefully) take you to the MBOR website. The building lies at the back of the beach,and is reached by a walkway across the greenery. Click on the webcam link on their site to get a live view. Think this is more upmarket than the Appollo building.

Ooops, it's called the BEACH CAM, and the blue umbrellas belong to MBOR.

MBOR has newer standard furnishings, Apollo has individual owner furnishings that can be great or average.

MBOR is substantually higher in price. MBOR is luxury and rooms are on South Collier Blvd. At the Apollo you don't pay for luxury, at the Apollo you are closer to the beach so the views of the beach are fantastic compared to MBOR.

There are trade offs in comparing the 2 entities.

1 week rental at MBOR Feb 2, 2013 to Feb 9, 2013 = $2,898

1 week rental at Apollo Feb 2, 2012 to Feb 9, 2012 = $1,200

You usually get what you pay for ... do you want to pay the difference for luxury?

Both are "full Gulf view" ... the Apollo condo's are full Gulf view.
