We first arrived a little early and asked if we could check in and received a very bad attitude from the man at the front desk. So we decided to go grab some lunch about 5 minutes away. The area wasn't too bad, 10 min south there is plenty of restaurants and supermarkets to shop at and grab what you need. After checking in and walking up to the room the "resort" seemed pretty empty.
Overall the room was pretty clean. The appliances were new so of course it looked okay. Definitely did not look like the pictures online. Had issues with the Wi-fi. I could only connect when out on the patio and rarely went past one bar. And with the disgusting smell coming from the beach i did not want to stay out there. When i called the front desk their explanation was "It was my device that was broken" all 5 of our devices could not of been broken.
KITCHEN: Lacked utensils, pots,pans,cups. For a party of 4 it didn't really have everything we needed.
LIVING ROOM: Nice big screen tv, not so comfy couches but was only really used at night when we were in.
BATH ROOMS: Well to start the bathroom in the kitchen? weirded me out. the toilet bowl was extremely hot. So hot that we had to keep the door open. The water lines ran to the sink were flip flopped. The hot was on the right and cold was on the left. The family bathroom toilet wouldn't flush. and the sink handles were opposite as the kitchen bathroom. cold was on the right and hot on the left. This bothered me because this shows lack of attention put into remodeling the "resort".
BEDROOMS: Extremely uncomfortable beds. Did not feel like i was staying in a resort at all. The king size room had a decent balcony that was rarely used because of the filthy smell coming from the "BEACH" outside.
OUTSIDE: My friends and i came from Daytona Beach and i must say what was outside this "resort" was not a beach. it was a nasty muck of rotten seaweed that stunk up the area. The pool was uncomfortably hot and had spiders in it. Had no lighting when the sun went down which didn't really matter because we weren't out there much anyway.
After driving around site seeing and checking out all the Keys has to offer i would much rather stay at other Hotels in the area. For future trips down to the keys this resort will not be getting business from me.
