My family stayed in unit 102A for 5 weeks. I have to say that although the views are great from the unit, that is about all that I can say that is positive. The unit is in major need of a cleaning and upgrade! The carpet is so dirty it is slimy, the bug screens in the kitchen are covered with dead bugs (probably from the sewage pump that is located right outside your kitchen…the kids had trouble sleeping as the pump runs all night). The kitchen is lacking any decent kitchen supplies. The vacuum is at least 20 years old I believe, and the mop was broken in half (hence no real cleaning could be done). The unit also lacks entertainment, as there is only one TV in the living area and nothing in either bedroom. The mastered was comfortable, although the mattress pad was one size too small and slipped off every night. There are no functional blinds in the back bedroom, so the outside hallway lights light up the room (bring your eye shields if you want to sleep). While we were there, the screen door in both the kitchen and the living area fell off. Thankfully the management company came and fixed it the next day (I guess that's another positive). As for the resort, the grounds are decent, but there is nothing "pretty"about them in terms of flowers or gardening (several dead plants in planters). The pool deck is very outdated and the pool pump was broken most of the time we were there, so the temperature was very cold. We also found a dead mouse floating in the pool one morning, which my husband had to scoop out. Yuck! This place is great if all you want is ocean views and crashing waves, but be VERY mindful of which unit you select.
