My psuedo-sister is an owner and lets me use it about once a year so I can't comment on price really, but I can say the condo i always stay in is a clean "beachy style" 2 bedroom that comes equipped with a very nice bathroom with a whirlpool bath, full kitchen and a washer and dryer. There is another Hyatt in the area with fancier rooms but with that one you have to cross a busy road to get to the beach (with all my fishing gear) so it doesn't have the quiet relax and fish factor I prefer, nor can i vouch whether there is good fishing action there. The parking here is great compared to downtown as well. If you rent a car and stay in a hotel near duval street or fleming street in the downtown area you are in for a helluva frustrating time finding street parking if your hotel doesn't provide it (most don't)!
What some say about the location is true if you want to party downtown every night. It is a 20 dollar taxi to and from downtown which adds up if you do it every night. For this reason I stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days and then headed downtown for the remainder of my trip so it was the perfect mixture of relaxing and partying for me.
Their Customer service has always been very good to me and they have always been helpful and courteous and gone the extra mile for me. Some people complained about not getting daily cleanings but this isn't a hotel its a time share. If you need a cleaning i think you just need to call the front desk. For just myself, there was plenty of towels and I like to re-use mine to save a little bit of the planets water and energy. That being said there are washers and driers in the room so its not a big deal to run a load either.
The people staying here are always generally nice and friendly and this time was no exception. Its a mixture of older married couples (anniversaries), honeymooners and a few singles but its a crap-shoot on any given week who will be staying there.
I spent most of the time fishing off the docks and drinking the awesome pina coladas or eating the tasty fresh fish sandwich they make at the tiki bar. The property has two small but clean fishing docks and a small beach so its perfect for me. You can catch mangrove snappers, grunts (sunfish), nurse sharks and barracuda here among other species. Several barracuda live under the dock near the Tiki bar including a very smart 5 footer that took my live bait a few times but jumped and spit the hook on me (better use metal leader). Some Tarpon come swinging down from the nearby Marina's bait tables late at night (12-2am) under the bridge to the canal, you can hook up with 50-75 pounders if you have some live bait (penn fish seem to work or live bait fish that you catch right there). Yes a few homeless do hang out near the bridge area but its not really on the property its off to the side and I often walk right past them and never had a problem.
If you walk over the bridge during the day, there is a water-sport rental center and Marina about 5 minutes away. You can rent kayaks, paddle-boards, bikes as well i think. You can also buy bait/gear upstairs from the Hurricane Hole restaurant/bar. You can also hire one of the 20 some odd boats there for bigger fishing action. There is also a Publix that is a 5 minute drive away from the resort where you can buy all the stuff you need to stock up your kitchen and save on eating out. (buy a box of frozen squid at publix for $3.99 a box for some effective cheap bait!)
