I can only rate as average. I was expecting it to be a little more high end. I booked online. I think the price was fair. I had requested an early check in and a high floor. We were granted the early check in however there was not a one bedroom oceanfront available except the second floor. We did find it nice to park on the same level as the condo. Outside grounds attractive. Location is great. I don't like the busy areas in MB. Parking was easy even with a full size Yukon but it was end of the season. Not sure how that would be during busy times. The lady who checked us in was very nice. Upon walking into condo there is a small musty smell. I know beach property's are hard to keep fresh due to dampness. The area in the condo with the tile flooring was very clean. The kitchen was very clean with the exception of the drawer in the stove when I was looking for pans. The kitchen was well stocked with anything you needed to cook with, coffee maker, toaster, mixer, coffee, dish clothes, and dishwash. The bathroom tile floor was clean however the walls need a good cleaning. There was evidence of spots of something all over it. The vanity was nice and clean. The shower was extremely small. I don't like it to be so tight that the shower curtain used by previous renters is touching me while bathing. Would have liked for it to be a lil larger. Bedroom was okay. Nothing to really be excited over. Beds slept fair. Carpet in the bedroom was okay. However the carpet in the living room was sub par. It needs a good shampoo or even replacement. It just felt yucky to my bare feet and had lots of stains. The kitchen table was also a murphy bed. The chairs to the table were nasty and stained. They also need cleaning or replaced. The living room couch looked new however it was of low quality. The rest of the furniture was not very new. I like a lil more plush comfortable furniture than we had. Plastic chairs on balcony were clean and in good repair. Being on the second floor gave us a poor oceanfront view. Just not the same as a higher floor. It was also directly over the pool and you felt as though there was no privacy when on balcony. For us and the ones laying in the chairs with their legs facing us... Also lights at the pool stayed on all night, I am sure for safety reasons but would have liked it a lil less bright at night. The balcony door did not latch so therefore it was not locked at anytime during our stay. There is no one at a desk to report this too after we found it but I really don't care for housekeeping or staff to be in my room once I have checked in. However a gentleman did knock on our door twice and ring the doorbell while we had the do not disturb sign out. He was maintenance and wanted to change the a/c filter. I was uncomfortable opening the door to a stranger. Would like to have been called ahead and told someone was coming in. But I do understand maintenance has to be done. We told him about the door. He looked at it and said a new lock would have to be ordered. There is no detail cleaning on the balcony or in the hallways. I know it is hard to do everything tip top but I was just expecting more than this condo offered. Pool area was nice as was the beach area in front of resort. Upon checkout again there was no one to leave the key with. I called over to the sister hotel next door and he wanted me to bring the key over there. I asked could I just leave it in the room. He said yes the maid would get it and bring it over. I do realize these are owned by individuals and the condos may vary. I would probably not stay here again unless I asked a lot of questions and inspected the unit at check in. I can therefore only rate this experience average.
