The property is very nice with a variety of shops, restaurants, and even a movie theatre. The pool area is unbelievable, but the downside is that you have to ride a golf cart shuttle or drive to get to the pool area from the condos. Also bringing your own cooler with outside food or drinks (even water) isn't allowed so it can get pretty pricey on a really hot day! There isn't a lot of shade in the pool area.
The reasons I rated The Wharf as average are when we arrived to check in the agent at the desk was on the phone on a personal phone call and let me stand there and wait for a few minutes. Every time I went back to ask a question or check out she was still on a personal phone call. Upon arrival, our paperwork said to do an inspection of the condo to make sure everything was in good condition otherwise you're responsible. I had to call and then go back and report that a closet door had come off the track at the bunkbeds and was lying against the wall and our balcony door wouldn't open. When I went and reported in person, someone did come to fix these issues. I've dealt with this rental company in the past and had good experiences but I might check elsewhere first next time. The condo seemed a little hastily cleaned. There was mildew in the grout in the shower. Things seemed a little dingy in the room. I know this is the experience in just one condo, so others may be totally different.
I use TA all the time and wish I had been able to get more info on this property so that's why I wanted to be sure to leave a detailed review of the condo.
This property is better suited to those who like to be active with shopping and other activities during their vacation.
