The Calypso Resort is situated very conveniently near the Pier Park Mall area, however, the location is overcrowded. We booked a 3 bdr condo in the west wing. The condo itself was very spacious and well stocked, decorated nice and was clean.
However, mid way through our stay the keyless entry would not work. Beware as if you book through another source other than the onsite property management, they will refuse to assist you . We were locked out for over an hour as we had been down at the pool and the number to Southern Vacation Rentals was in the room, which we could not get to due to the electronic issue with the door. We had to call 3 different numbers that we googled on one of our phones to find the correct person to speak with while watching numerous cleaning and maintenance staff pass us by (who were not allowed to help us due to us using an outside source for booking, therefore I would not book with the property management now as that was a total turn off and did not shed a good light on their customer service.
The hallways are too narrow so check in day is a hassle trying to pass people in the hall with luggage and racks- you literally cannot pass each other so someone is going to have to back all the way back to the elevator area which is ridiculous. The parking situation is a hassle. The bridge to the parking is on the 3rd floor, but you will never find a spot on that floor of the garage; and since the parking has a separate elevator you will have to ride an elevator or climb multiple sets of stairs just to get to the 3rd floor where you will get on another elevator to get to your room. Also, we were on a high floor which was a pain each time we tried to get an elevator. There are 3 elevators but only one seemed to be in service and inevitably stopped on every floor due to the fact the resort was booked to capacity. This resort would probably be nice off season without the frustration of the crowds and if you can book a room on the 3rd floor and actually be able to get a parking spot on that level. Any other time is not worth the aggravation.
