“Unit 307 "junky"”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

This was our 4th stay in the Apollo at beautiful Marco Island. We waited all year for our vacation anticipating all that we love about the beach here. Normally our units at the Apollo were more than comfortable, usually the furnishings are surprisingly high quality for a beach rental.
Unfortunately this year in unit 307 we were disappointed. Obviously this unit had been furnished from Good Will. Everything was cheap, barely functioning. The dishwasher had to be repaired while we were there, and after the "repair" the kitchen sink drained into the floor. The mattress was more of a hammock. The shower curtain fell every time you tried to close it. We will not waste our week in Florida on this unit again. We will not make the mistake of renting from this owner again either.

Room Tip: Look at interior pictures closely. Read the previous renters reviews carefully.

So if you're expecting a fancy hotel then don't stay here. This was a layed back condo. We loved every minute of it. Totally relaxing just what we needed. Though a Tropical Storm was arriving to the area.
It was great getting up in the morning enjoying our coffee facing the Gulf of Mexico and watching
the dolphins swim by.
It was also nice cooking our own meals in the room. So Before you head into Marco Island there is a Super Walmartin Naples, if you're planning on staying at this condo might want to pick up some grocery before you get there. (There is also a Winn-Dixie in town).
Unit 404 was perfect everything you needed was there. We have decided that next year we will
return.This was a 1 Bedroom unit with a sleeper sofa perfect for three aduls or Couples with a small child.

My wife and I have stayed at the Apollo at least five times since 2001. We always rent from the same condo owner. It is always super clean, well stocked with everything you need for a family vacation on a budget. If you are expecting the Ritz-Carlton, keep looking the Apollo is not for you. However, small familes or couples that appreciate the value of a dollar will get their money's worth here. Great beachfront location.

The owner is very attentive to the needs of his guests. Plenty of towels, beach toys for the kids, binoculars for dolphin watching and lots of extras that make you feel welcomed.

Unit 807 is small, it's only one bedroom, one bath with a sleeper sofa in the front room. But you can spend a week here for the cost of two nights anywhere else on the island. And hey....you're here for the beach not an overpriced hotel room.

We will keep coming back....

Room Tip: Contact the owner at Spartydad.com if you want to stay here.

A Girl friends getaway at the Apollo Condimiums was exactly what the Dr. ordered!!! You are steps away from the Beach. Either to walk along and shell, go for a dip or just sit there and take in everything, this is the place to stay! We had a 1 bed/1 bath condo on the 3rd floor. The staff that checked us in on Sat. was very friendly. The facility had everything you needed too! The pool and tennis courts were well kept, and from your patio in you are able to watch the beautiful sunset!!! It was nice to have the Sunset Grill on site to get drinks and food too!!! Thank you and we look forward to renting a 3bed/2bath in the future!!!!

Room Tip: #305 had everything you needed. They even provided coolers, tennis rackets and balls, and all of you...

The view is worth the price of admission and the condo is very clean. Everything 2 people could want. It isn't large but big enough for 2 people. The pool and hot tub are warm and very clean. There is a restaurant on the property that is very good. We really had a good time on the beach and in the water. We watched dolphin every morning as we drank coffee from our balcony. Compared to other properties on the island this is a great deal.

I read the review below about this condo (506) two days before we moved into it. As it turned out, I had nothing to be concerned about. The condo is a one bedroom, one bathroom, so of course it's small, but it's just fine for 2 people. We found no reason to complain, be disappointed, or angry. The pictures posted on the Global Discovery Vacation website are current pictures, except for the couch. It is new as well as the coffee maker and microwave. The condo is clean, has great beach chairs and the balcony overlooks the gulf. The view is fabulous

my wife and I went through Eric to rent our condo, he is the owner. The place was beautiful, clean, and the view was amazing. Almost every morning we watched the dolphins from our center balcony. It was a wonderful vacation and we highly recommend!

Room Tip: Go through the local owners instead of expedia and other travel companies
