Where do I begin???? My husband and I will never stay at The Beacons again and you would be wise not to waste your money at this ‘resort’.
We rented a condo for a week. We originally wanted one of the townhouses; they were unavailable, but were promised this condo was a replicate of the townhouse.
The bathroom off the master bedroom had black mold growing all around the shower. Also, the shower leaked and it took 3 days for them to fix it, so we had to use the secondary shower in the smaller bathroom.
The carpet was not clean, there were multiple stains on the window shades, and there was a constant drip from the faucet in the kitchen.
We stayed on the 2nd floor. The layout of the stairs is abysmal. Trying to carry luggage up and down the stairs was tiring, loud, and a real pain in the neck.
The television in the living room was not what was promised. We were supposed to get a 32 inch flat screen tv. This one was much smaller and the sound and picture were horrible. We could not get in all the tv channels listed on the flyer. God forbid you were a “Breaking Bad” fan, because AMC was constantly just white noise and blur.
Their Wi-Fi system probably was designed by the NSA. We had problems with our laptop and it took many hours to undo their linkup. Also, my husband’s Droid just stop working and it died up there.
The sign for The Beacons is almost unrecognizable after dark.
We paid for one week up there, and ended up leaving two days early because we were so disgusted. Also, we had a very expensive life vest stolen from our boat. When you stay at what they ‘advertise’ as a premier resort, you don’t expect that there are thieves lurking around.
When checking our two days early and telling them how upset we were with our stay there, they offered NOTHING -- no refund, no statement as to “what can we do for you”, NOTHING.
One last thing – we were hoping this was going to be a wonderful trip and had planned on buying a time share there.
