I offer this review for the cruising boaters who may spend a night or two here.
We feel in love with Pirates Cove the day we moved to Stuart in 2005. In fact our first night in Florida we stayed at the hotel. Our love of this little place was so great, that once we decided to move aboard our boat, regardless of it being one of the more expensive marinas around, we've now made it our home!
There are 2 issues that are leading us to rethink our decision once our annual contract is up. The first of these is the shower/restrooms available to boaters. Typically...they are disgusting. This stems from the fact that these restrooms now service their Tiki Bar, and on the weekends...it's hopping. Saturday and Sunday mornings are the worse. In the woman's showers, my wife has seen the same wad of hair in the drain and the same soap wrappers in one of the stalls for over a week now. No need to share any of the sights in the men's side.
The second issue is that for THREE MONTHS one of the cloths washers hasn't worked, one of the dryers has a dreadful smell, and the other dryer doesn't stop when you open the door making use of it...interesting.
These issues have been brought to managements attention countless times, but given that managements changes every few days...still...nothing gets done. If you're a boater...think twice.
That said, the bar/restaurants are staffed by very friendly, customer focused folks. It's a great little spot, it's just I wish that given our dock fees are a five figure numbers every year...it would be nice if the marina customer was treated as importantly as the weekend get-away customer.
