I would book it again in a heartbeat! For 4 nights, it was around $695 with day of last minute special.
20th floor gulf view – gorgeous!
High End Décor throughout – think Crate & Barrel, luxury feel, affordable price (but I got a last minute special)
Wonderful Flat Panel TV & Surround Sound when playing DVDs (HINT: Surround sound doesn’t work with tv, just the dvd player)
Two sets of cookware: non-stick and stainless
Light Sleeper’s Dream bedroom: includes tempurpedic mattresses, and the room stays so dark and quiet!
Gorgeous light fixtures in main hallway and dining area!
Nice to have reclining patio chair on the balcony.
Doug checked us in at night: introduced himself by name, welcomed us to the resort, explained everything for our after hours check-in – You Rock Doug!
Loved seeing the You Tube video of someone walking through the unit. This really sold me on booking this one!
Free Beach chairs and umbrellas (HINT- rock to reposition, just jamming it in the sand won’t make it stay)
Super Nice Beach Chair Attendants: hard workers! One of them tried to rearrange the chairs to make it better for the patrons. Even though I guess management or owners didn’t like it, you’ve got to give the kid credit for trying to be innovative for a better guest experience. The second guy, walked around on the hottest day checking on the guest in chairs to see if he could do anything for them! What service!
Elevator Mats- put in during the day when beach use is high so the elevator floors don’t get slippery, and taken out each night to be cleaned….wow, that’s a lot of work!
Friendly Front Receptionists: Irene and Betty
Unit Areas for Improvement:
Such a wonderful unit, but…..
It would be a nice amenity to have at least one hair dryer.
A pizza pan or stone would also be nice. Baking a pizza on the rack only increases the chance for a messy oven.
The director’s chairs at the bar kind of pinch the bottom of your legs, and aren’t super comfy. To me, they don’t fit the higher end design of the condo as well.
Resort Areas for Improvement:
Maybe you can’t offer this at the great price we paid, but a small sample of dish soap for dish hand washing jobs would be nice. (two packets of dishwashing detergent and a sponge were left for us).
Smokers: It was hard to enjoy our patio at times because of smokers on other patios smoking, and their ashes and smoke blowing onto our deck. I don’t know if you can make the whole property non-smoking including patios, but that sure would be nice! It’s just hard to enjoy a sunset when you’re having trouble breathing!
No Wi-Fi, just Ethernet- I was told by Resort Quest this unit had Wi-Fi. The person I booked with was probably just in a hurry and meant Ethernet cable. I know a cable is probably more secure than Wi-Fi, but I was just told one thing, and got another.
BE CAREFUL: There is a wave running company that uses the Celadon beachfront as a loading and unloading area. Whoever the company is operates very dangerously. The watercraft operators scream into the swimming public (at least they did on May 29, 2011 around 1:30), clearly not in the designated loading and unloading areas. I couldn’t believe how unsafe they were driving, and felt myself at risk while I was swimming. I have spoken to Donny and I know he’s working on getting this resolved.
