The price for the room was excellent and the amount of square footage was great. We actually called to make our reservation and got an even better price than was listed on the Altantica's website or other travel sites. The large balcony was very enjoyable as well. For what we paid, we didn't expect high-end furnishings, but we were 'sorely' disappointed (pun intended) by the mattresses and the bedding. The mattresses were extremely uncomfortable and the mattress protector rattled every time we moved. But what made the beds unbearable was the "comforter" (if you can even call it that), they were hard and stiff and since the only other linen available was a top sheet, we were uncomfortably cold at night. My husband equated the comforter/blanket to trying to sleep under wrapping paper - it didn't fold or drape at all. 2 other things that were bothersome enough to write about: 1. The elevator - The elevator to the right of the front desk (if you are facing the front desk) was often slimy and very wet. Most of the time it seemed like we waited forever for it to come. The other elevator, which we discovered a day or so after arrival, seemed to be much cleaner and more efficient. 2. Toilet Paper - other than the toilet paper that was in our room upon check-in, the housekeeping staff never left us another roll. We had to go get our own twice. This was annoying anyway, but it was even worse due to the fact we had to walk 3 buildings down to the Palmetto Shores building to get the toilet paper and then walk back down the street carrying it. We definitely got some snickers from people we passed. On a more positive note, I would like to compliment the resort on the Patio Bar staff by the pool - C.C. and Brian - they went out of their way to chat with us, prepare drinks that we would like based on our tastes, give us advice on restaurants and attractions and were exceptionally friendly - certainly the bright spot of our stay! Oh, and the location was great!!
