This was our second year at Ocean's Reach. Our first year (2008) was absolutely perfect! This year we stayed in a different condo. The condo was extremely clean just like last year's which we like. It is very close to the beach and the grounds are very pretty. Every morning we would open our curtains to a wonderful view of the ocean. All of their condos are ocean front. They have a nice pool area too & an awesome area for grilling out. This year after washing a load of dishes I noticed they weren't coming clean. My husband checked it out and the dishwasher's spray arm was broken off and had attached to the heating element. At this point we realized we couldn't use it because it could start a fire. There also was a TON of broken glass in the bottom of the dishwasher. We arrived on Friday and received a brand new dishwasher the night before we were supposed to leave (Thursday) except there was a note with it that said "DO NOT USE" because it wasn't attached to the wall yet. Doing dishes is NOT what I wanted to do on vacation! Upon arrival we also discovered 1 of the dining room chairs was broken. A repairman said he would bring it back that day but it never was returned to us during our stay--no replacement chair--NOTHING!! We have a family of 4 so 1 of us would have to sit at the counter and 3 of us at the table for meals. We were lucky we reserved a condo with bar stools at the counter (some don't have them) otherwise we would have to either eat in shifts or put a couple of people on the lanai to eat & a couple of people indoors. I love to cook and I like my family to sit down together to eat so this was a big inconvenience & very disappointing. We were vacationing on a budget so dining out was not an option. We only dined out for 1 meal. Last year in 2008 the evenings on the lanai were very quiet & peaceful. This year there was a large group of people traveling together staying in condos next to us and above & below us. In the evenings they would all gather in the condo & lanai above us and it would be very noisy. I would guess they were packing 10 to 15 people in a one bedroom condo! Sitting on the lanai this year at night was very noisy listening to them. They would be at the beach all day drinking under a couple of Easy-Ups and in the ocean and then continue the party on through the night. We drink ourselves but not to the extent that these people did. My hubby left a pair of Croc Sandals outside of our door one night and the next morning (his birthday) they were gone! What a birthday present! It says on the brochure not to leave anything outside but his shoes were wet and we like to keep the condo clean. I loved the cleanliness of the condos the best and the broken dishwasher, broken dining room chair, stolen shoes & drunks above us the least.
