“Tired and a little bit sad”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

So I have had a lesson in what "Old Florida" means. I thought it would be cute, kitschy and retro. "Old Florida" means just that. It's in Florida and it's OLD. Maybe a new lick of paint on top of the 60 years of paint since it was built in the 60s but that's it.

So the Cons: Although the unit has clearly been renovated (in a very cheap way) and the cleaning crew had done a great job with what they had to work with, when we checked in we were really disappointed. The development (Pelican Cove) as a whole is more than a little tired and very sad, especially on the outside. From the parking lot, there is a grim metal door at the bottom of the stairs to get to the unit and a super 70s pool with tacky very old lounge chairs. I had asked in advance about beach chairs and towels, and was told there might be some left in the unit. Indeed there were moldy and rusty beach chairs, disgusting moldy beach toys and absolutely no beach towels. The upholstery desperately needs cleaning although it is cheap so will likely not clean or last long. The kitchen equipment is barely usable, nothing matches and absolutely no supplies were included (trash bags, dishwasher soap, paper towel, toilet paper, laundry detergent, salt & pepper--nothing). We bought all that and left it for the next people.

The sheets were clean but very 'pilly' from sandy feet in the beds no doubt. The bathrooms are tiny and who knows when the bath mats were last washed. The vertical blinds drove me up a wall, but that is entirely a personal pet-peave. There were very few hangers.

The Pros: The bath towels were plentiful and fluffy and the TV worked well. The beach across the street was absolutely fantastic although they are re-building a pier very close by and so the view is compromised and you hear the noise of the machinery from 8:30 am. But the beach was hardly crowded on the most crowded week of the year and the sand and water were beautiful. We saw dolphins swimming one day and there were surfers and surfable waves. The fridge is very new and made ice quickly. The parking is covered so your car doesn't get hot or rained on. That's about it really. The toaster and coffee maker worked (although no filters so had to buy 100 of those as well!).

Overall it's my own fault as I booked way last minute. There are MUCH nicer places, especially at the top end of AMI. The Bradenton Beach end is tacky, tacky, tacky. I mean TACKY. But the beach itself is beautiful. For my money there are a list of about 25 places I would rather go to get some sun in the springtime and I will definitely be planning ahead and going to one of them next year.
