We stayed in Tower 2 (Grand Vista) for 5 days at the end of June. Condo was comfortable, roomy, and relatively clean. View, even from non-gulf front, was enjoyable. Corner gulfview condos had really wonderful views. I would pay a little more and stay gulf-front only because gulfview condos are actually "street front" and even on the 7th floor loud traffic and motorcycles late at night posed a challenge in getting to sleep. Parking garage and its spaces are very, very tight and tricky to get in and out of. Beach and Pool area on gulf front side are nice. (Did not use pool on Tower 2) Reservation department was flexible when I needed to change my check-in and checkout dates. Biggest downsides: First, this is NOT a hotel... or a resort. There is no "front desk" to answer questions about the area or any issues with the condo. There is a general number to call which is primarily reservations but will handle some "front desk needs" during working hours. No customer service. Housekeeping services were additional if desired during stay. Secondly, the condos vary greatly in their individual amenities. Mine had a barely stocked kitchen (I also bought pans as previously mentioned), no pull out sofa, no local phone, and no resort or local info anywhere in condo. Although the condo I booked was supposed to sleep 8, there were no bedding/beds, towels, or place settings for 8 people, but it was roomy enough for 8 people if properly equipped.
