River Wilderness Waterfront Villas, Everglades
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 29, 2008

Five of us in a canoe and kayak club booked a suite of rooms. We were told (and viewed on-line) that there was a screened in porch, refrigerator, stove, etc. After the hurricane I emailed them to be sure they could accomodate us and was assured that although they had sustained damage that they would be ready for us. When we got there we found there was no roof on our section just a blue tarp. The porch was off-limits due to being smashed up. The place was dirty and smelled of mold. We had a hard time getting clean towels and the managers were nasty to us. After all this they overcharged us even though we had paperwork with the acknowledgment. NEVER AGAIN!
