“Dated and poorly maintained”
Reviewed June 22, 2011

We checked in first to unit D214 which had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke and lysol. After some insistence, they moved us down the hall to unit D212. Both were very dated in decor and furniture. The first unit had chairs with screws falling out 80's wall paper everywhere. The second was worse with old cheap furniture, painted wall paper, outlets, paneling and appliances (yes, they painted the appliances with wall paint.). Nearly every wood surface was nicked and in need of repainting and nearly every piece of trim had numerous nail holes that were never filled and painted. Some walpaper was painted over and had quaint fruit decals applied that were peeling off. The master bedroom bed was a double, with a torn bedspread, and a mattress I'd never have in my guest room.

On top of that, the pool was closed on check-in due to vomit (I'm not kidding). We will never come back.

Excellent, relaxing, fun filled stay! These condo's are independently owned, so you do have to be wary of which ones you get... but this unit was just perfect! Clean, nicely decorated, spacious, great deck with ocean views, cool breezes and a view of the pool as well. Traveled with parent-in-laws, brother-in-law and husband. Wanted for nothing! perfect amount of space, comfortable living room, great little kitchen. Had a wonderful time and we can't wait to go back. The unit has 2 bedrooms, one full size and one with two twin size beds... Before you think twins are too small for anything but children, my husband and I slept in one twin and my BIL the other... no problems, great nights sleep, wonderful air conditioner... I think we froze the boys some, but momma and I were comfy at night! We only spent 2 nights but would have been very happy doing a week there. I highly recommend.

We loved staying at the Ocean Villa Resort. The rooms were spacious and clean. The resort was very close to nice restaurants and other nearby attractions. We will definitely be coming back to stay here soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool side room.

A fellow teacher and myself stayed at the Ocean Forest Villa with our children. It was wonderful. The unit we stayed in was very clean and housekeeping was prompt and came every morning. We were right at the beach. It is close to everything you may need if you forget anything at home. Everthing in the unit worked and it was all clean. We enjoyed our stay and seriously thought about adding on two extra nights.

Room Tip: Call to see if they have a special.

We have stayed at Ocean Forest Villa Resorts about once a year for sevaral years now. We have had a positive experience every time we stayed there. The two-bedroom villa works perfectly for our family and allows enough room for Grandma to accompany our family of five. The rooms have been clean and comfortable. We are looking forward to going again this year.

The 212 condos at Ocean Forest Villas are privately owned. My wife and I are owners. We
use our condo as a frequent getaway for our private use. As such, it is not available for rent. If you dont ask for a "newly remodeled" unit, you run the risk of getting one that is dated. Although the property was built in the 70's , the pools, spas, and grounds are well maintained and always enjoyable. Since OFVR is in a resedential area, away from the busy downtown high rises, the beach is semi-private with no crowds. Easy access to shopping, attractions, and 15 minutes from the airport.
Also request beachview with poolview for a preferred location. Beach front is also nice.

Room Tip: Ask to be moved if not satisfied with room.

Ocean Forest Villas have a great view of the ocean and are just step away from the beach! Our 6 night stay was a great value! The location and condo were both very good! Just booked our 4th consecutive summer vacation here!!
