We had a 3 bedroom/3 bath condo. Overall the condo was beautiful. It was clean and well decorated. Our room was ready on time but due to a housekeeping shortage a lot of people had to wait until 6 to get into their rooms. Our condo was oceanfront and had a wonderful view and a big balcony although I was wishing the balcony furniture was nicer. We had a plexiglass table and plastic chairs- it would have been nice to have some sort of lounge chair to relax on. The carpet was white but very clean. The master bath was beautiful with granite countertops and lots of storage space it also had a Jacuzzi tub, double sinks and a huge shower. I wish the lighting was a little better over the sinks. The master bedroom was big with 2 closets and a king size bed but the tv was really small (13 inches) although it did have a dvd player. The mattress was not very comfortable, the pillows were flat and the comforter was very dated. The 2nd bedroom had 2 twin beds. The bed closest to the window was squeaky but the other bed seemed fine. The pillows again were flat and the comforter needs updating. There is a 13 inch tv in this bedroom as well but you could only see it from the squeaky bed and there was no dvd player. The 2nd bathroom is across the hall and it had a deep soaking tub which was very nice. The 3rd bedroom had a queen size bed and was very comfortable but again the pillows were flat and the comforter needs updating. This room also had 13 inch tv with a dvd player and an attached bath with a soaking tub. The kitchen was well stocked with stainless steel appliances and any kitchen item you may need including a blender and a toaster. There was also a wine cooler/bar area although a panel door was missing from the bar area. There was also bar stools and a nice dining room table. This unit also had a fold out couch which we did not use and the tv was larger in this room but no dvd player. There is also a stacked washer and dryer in the unit. The owner of the unit had a scrabble game and various books and magazines as well. On the 1st day I accidentally locked myself out of the unit while unloading groceries and the rest of my family was on the beach. Housekeeping stayed with my things while I went to the 5th floor and Alex the security guard verified my info and was able to give me another key to get into the unit. Alex was very understanding and efficient!
We brought and/or bought everything we needed- paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. which made our stay more enjoyable.
We did request extra towels from housekeeping for the pool and they would not give us any extra. They counted all of our dirty towels and washcloths and would only exchange clean for dirty.
There is no restaurant on site but you are close to everything here. The Kroger is a 5 minute drive away as well as various restaurants that will deliver to your hotel so no problem there.
We have an SUV and parking was never an issue. The elevators are fast and security is everywhere so we felt very safe. We didn't eat or have drinks at the pool bar.
The pools were clean and well maintained and the hot tubs were nice too. I really enjoyed the lazy river.
Overall I would stay at this property again just wishing some items (as mentioned above) were more updated.
(I will post pics and a video soon as well)
