What Can I Say?

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at the Phoenix on the Bay and WOW what a pleasant surprise! The facilities are excellent if you don't really care about being on the beach. The children with us thoroughly enjoyed the pools, lazy river and water slide. They were exhausted by bed time every night LOL.

The condo is beautiful! It is very well decorated, set up perfectly and was just wonderful in general. Comfortable beds, clean and every amenity you could ask for. Our only complaint was that dishes were put away dirty. The owner of the condo is certainly not to blame for this. We have encountered this same problem with multiple other rentals. People just will not clean up after themselves as they are getting ready to leave the unit.

We had a great experience working with the owner setting up the rental and once we got there. We had an issue with the key pad on the door and the owner handled it immediately, even though he was actually on a trip of his own. We were very thankful for his quick response to our need.

We will definitely be back!!!

Wonderful condo at a great resort!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo decorated as if it is family used and not just a rental property. For a 2 bedroom the condo is very spacious. The furniture was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the patio with its plush seating. Phoenix on the Bay was everything we hoped it would be. The pools were wonderful and well maintained and the lazy river was a lot of fun for both kids and adults. It only took 10 minutes to get down to the public beach access and shopping and grocery stores. Larry was very welcoming and friendly. He addressed a minor problem we had very quickly. We would definitely stay here again!

Everything looked as pictured when we arrived.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing is that there were some hairs left in the shower. (From someone’s head) A quick spray and rinse and all good! Also, the toaster was not working. We just used the oven so no biggie for us! The kids loved the pool and fishing off the docks. A few minute ride to the beach. So easy to get to! Would definitely consider staying again. Really liked the feature of the code lock. No need to remember and hold onto a key. Very nice appliances and furniture. Loved the morning sun on our patio too. Owner was very friendly and responsive to emails and calls.

Condo unit was impressive, complex was okay

  • 3 of 5

The unit itself was top notch and a great unit. The layout and location to parking ramp was great with minimal traffic. It was decorated great. They had nice touches for children with bean bag chairs and even a crib mattress and child bed rails in the second bedroom. Beautiful view of bay.

The downsides: outdoor pools and lazy river were not heated. The water was freezing for spring break. My children who normally I can’t pull out of the pool and lazy river (reason we booked there) didn’t spend much time and one (my 4yr old) didn’t go in again after first day. I was very disappointed. They wanted to spend entire time at indoor pool where it was warm. Other downside is due to the shape of the resort (a v shape) after 4:00pm the pool area outside had no sun. Would be nice for summer but not spring break time. Due to these factors we travelled to the public beach almost daily rather than stay at condo, which was unfortunate.

Overall: if you are planning to book at this resort I would recommend this unit, but overall I couldn’t recommend this resort for a spring break vacation. I do think it would be great for summer or long term rental for winter season.

Good location. Liked the top floor. Good amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the location and being on the top floor. Pretty clean except for the bathroom floor.

A little dusty. The overhead fans should be cleaned. Larry answered all our questions on a timely basis and was good to work with. We will probably stay again.
