"This was our third stay at Villa Renaissance and our first stay in this condo. Mel from Allied Management arrived right around the same time that we did. She unlocked the door, we walked in and wow - we fell in love. This condo is beautiful, functional and feels like home. All of the little things are thought of here - a small cooler for the beach, bug spray, sunscreen, take out menus from a ton of different restaurants, a pad and pen for notes, a gallon of water for your stay cold in the refrigerator. The condo is decorated elegantly but comfortably. The living area and kitchen are in one large area together and quite spacious. The furniture is comfortable and there is everything in the kitchen that you would need if you want to cook meals. The bedroom is a good size with lots of closet space for clothes and shoes, and the bathroom is huge with a shower, a large vanity with two sinks, lots of large, thick towels.
On to the pool area - quiet and elegant and nice to sit and read a book by. The beach - as always, stunning. In our three stays here, there has always been enough umbrellas and chairs for all guests which is such a plus. My favorite thing to do is bring a floatie (and if you don't bring one, there are floaties that others have left in a big brown box on the walkway to the beach) and float from VR down to Point Grace, get out, walk back and do it again. It's the best way to spend an afternoon being a beach bum We saw a ton of starfish to the right of the hotel. Quick note on starfish - please do not take them out of the water and handle them. They die quickly when they are out of the water. Thanks.
The staff - always smiling, always ready to help in anyway. The location of Villa Renaissance makes it one of the most centrally located resorts on Grace Bay, with a ton of restaurants in all price points within short walking distance, plus lots of shopping as well. We always rent a car, but if you don't want to, feel comfortable knowing that you are well located here.
So now as I sit here to write this review, I'm trying to figure out when we can return. Hopefully it will be soon and we will definitely book this condo at Villa Renaissance again."
