If you're staying at Hunt's Castle for mostly a fishing experience on their pier, which I do, then you can probably overlook the shower stalls that leak onto the floor, the leaky toilets, and the non-working stoves, etc.etc.. But you must be made aware that on Sunday evenings (and probably on into the weekdays) that the local residents start to invade the property ( apparantly at the permission of mangement). The pier does not have a locked entrance gate and during my last trip in April '10, I personally saw at least two vehicles pull up and park on Hunt's Castle property right adjacent to the pool and right across the street from the pier. These people actually got into the pool and commenced to having a jolly good time, and then several others walked out onto the pier and succeeded in monopolizing the entire section of the end ("T" section) of the pier thereby disallowing the best fishing spots for paying residents. I walked out to the end of the pier about an hour before dark to be friendly to these people and see if there might be room for my son and myself to fish. I was very quickly told to "shove off" in so many words, that there was no room for us. I asked management about this situation during checkout the next day, and I was told that "these are guests from our other location." I asked, but was never told where this mysterious "other place" is located.The neighboring Condo just down the road has higher rates compared to Hunt's castle, but the gate on their pier is locked, their rooms are 10 times better, and they cater to their paying customers, not to non-paying, rude, local residents.
