“Waterside was Worth it!”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Will def go here again. We stayed in a 3 br condo and it was extremey spacious and clean. Everyone had their own space and it was very peaceful. I did not find the furniture "dated" at all. But it was definitely that cliche resort look. The front desk was extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.The kitchen was fully equipped, and the location was blocks from the beach. We rented bikes form the Bike doctor, who delivered them for a charge even though their flyer said free delivery. But the bikes were very handy and it took us maybe 3-5 minutes to get to the beach using them. The bike shop Pedals is closer to Waterside and you can walk around the corner and rent there if you want bikes. We will use them next time. Highly recommend Waterside. The price was more than worth it.

Room Tip: Room 5525 was a corner room with a great view of the lagoon. Just across from the large pool. We wil...

We stayed here for a week at spring break. The 3 bedroom condo was lovely, sunny and bright with a nice balcony overlooking a wetlands and a pond. There were actually two master suites with king size beds and bathrooms, and a third bedroom upstairs with two twins and a private bath. The kitchen was adequately stocked, and the condo was nicely furnished. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a grocery right across the street, the beach is about 3 blocks away, and there is a shopping plaza within 2 blocks. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this resort.

Room Tip: If stairs are an issue for you, ask for a ground floor unit. We were on second floor, which was fin...

My biggest complaint is that they were working on the main pool and jacuzzi so that we did not have use of these entities. Very disappointing. When I questioned the staff, I was told that I could use the indoor pool and jacuzzi and facilities at Players Club for a fee. Since it was Feb., it would have been nice to have use of these facilities, mainly the jacuzzi, on the warm days. It was a great location with supermarkets one block away, as well as stores and restaurants. There were "vultures" around wanting you to go to a timeshare talk and offering all kinds of stuff. Other than those two things, it was a great place to stay, two blocks from the beach, and of course the bike riding was the best! The gal who talks to you about activities is well worth the scheduled time. There was more than enough room and the kitchen was well supplied. Great having a washer and dryer, too. I would return.

Room Tip: The parking is under the buildings, so no one has to be at ground level. Bike racks are in the gara...

We stayed here for 2 weeks in October and had a great time. We had a 3br/3ba unit with plenty of space and nicely decorated. the staff were very freindly and co-operative. The resort is located within walking distance of many restaurants, and the ocean. We were able to find discount golf packages for some great courses and played 9 days. We rented bicycles and rode over most of the island. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed over Christmas break and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations.

Things we loved:
+Quick & painless check-in
+No harassment to go to a time share presentation
+Super spacious unit
+Jacuzzi tub
+Beautiful lagoon
+Close proximity to Coligny Plaza & the beach
+Semi-"heated" outdoor pool
+Great activity staff (especially the short sassy gal)
+Bingo was awesome and we won fantastic prizes (kayaking rentals & restaurant gift cards)

Things that would improve the stay:
-Keeping the hottub open longer.
-Better televisions (Only 1 of 4 were LCD)
-Updating the furniture

This is a solid time share property. As Marriott owners, who exchanged into this vacation, we were a little doubtful about what we would experience. Our 2 bed, 2 bath, full kitchen/dining/ living room and full sized laundry did not disappoint at all. Clean, well located, off the beach....not a problem for us. Donna gave my husband excellent information concerning eating, touring and general orientation. Every restaurant was great and the included bikes made our stay even more fun. Eric the "golf guy" was the best. Figured us out right away and got tee times in a twinkle. When one of our party needed an Urgent Care facility Waterside knew just where to send us. Yes, the decor is a little dated but are you really in the room that much???? The pool area lovely and many activities were offered. Kitchens fully appointed. You can cook up a storm here if you like. Walking distance to the Piggley Wiggley and BiLo. Have a great time!

Room Tip: Loved the condos closer to the road to the beach.

First I want to state that we didn't even stay there. We walked in to ask about a reservation made in our name and the individual at the check-in desk was so rude, unhelpful and dismissive that we simply left and found another place to stay. Never in our lives have we been treated this way!
