“HSRC Beach Blast”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful beach views and happy memories...Book your vacation directly through the main office after viewing all the units on the official website...You can't go wrong. The weather is gorgeous. All the rooms have stunning views and you are convenient to shopping and restaurants if you can tear yourself away from the beach and the relaxing atmosphere of Holiday Surf and Racquet Club.

We, ve stayed at this property many times for the past 24 years. Condos are nice, clean, well decorated, right on the beach. We, ve always enjoyed it. Now policies have changed. You must pay half the bill when you make your reservation., the other half one month before you arrive. Pretty outrageous!! Other properties nearby don, t do this. Makes me want to go elsewhere!

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us at Holiday Surf & Racquet Club. We appreciate your business for the last 24 years. We implemented a new reservations software this past January. With the new system, it allowed us an opportunity to revise the way that we collected deposits. We tried a new method and realized that our valued guests preferred the way that we had been doing business....... We are pleased to announce that you can book a unit with us for just $333.50 down and your remaining balance is not due unti you arrive. Thank you again for being a loyal customer. We look forward to your next visit.

My husband and I stayed at HSRC the first week of May. Check in was easy. Rooms were clean an adequate. This is an older property, but is well maintained and a good value. The beach was clean and plenty of room to relax. Pool is small, but adequate. Location is near the end of Holiday Isle and very quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

The view, the beach, the water, is so gorgeous here. We love to go in May and October. The water is crystal clear turquoise blue, and the sand is white with plenty of seashells washing ashore to pick up, along our walks to the jetty. The decor in the condos are usually very nice, but since they are all owned by individuals, we like to view the rooms on the website first, and request certain rooms, according to personal decor taste. We also like to choose the outer rooms if available, because they offer better views of the ocean, although all offer great views. There is a grill for cooking dinner, dining room tables in each condo for dinner and family gatherings, and bathrooms are right off the bedrooms, but accessible for guests. The pool is great, and laundry, and exercise facilities are available, too. We usually have at least one tennis match on the courts, which is a great amenity to have.

Room Tip: Outer rooms if you want a better ocean view, but these are also further from the elevator. Can choos...

Next time, we will probably visit a little later in the year. - late may or early june - but we will be back! The weather was cold and windy the entire week.

But the condo is nice, and conveniently located. Our unit was decorated tastefully and accurately reflected on the website. I was worried about the view given the V - Shape of the complex, but we had a nice view of the ocean from our unit's balcony and also from my parents unit that was closer to the pool. Again, the photo was accurate.

The decor in some of the other unit photos does look outdated, so i'm not surprised by some of the reviews.

Didn't care for the condo or the balcony. I didn't like that the balcony was screened in. It was impossible to get pictures from your room of what would have been a great view. I also didn't like that the condos were in a V shape. This kept you from seeing the sunrise and the sunset. The cooling system was inside a closet in the hallway/kitchen and was so loud you couldn't sleep. We also had to go buy bed crates because mattress was so hard.
The pool and beach area were nice and it was clean but I wouldn't want to stay there again.

The people that work there are super friendly, and super helpful. There are loads of things to do, including tennis, a small gym, sauna, heated pool, and even movies at the front desk that you can borrow.
I felt extremely safe, behind big gates, and a security hut at the entrance.
You really couldn't be much closer to the beach too. Walk out the back doors, around the pool, open a gate, and you find yourself on a nice, clean stretch of Florida Beach.
Our rooms were spacious, clean, and very well stocked. We were able to prepare an entire Thanksgiving meal with no trouble at all.
We all loved it and plan on coming back again next year.
