Great family condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Reef for 5 days/4 nights and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Gulf from the balcony along with direct beach access each day. The unit is beautifully furnished and very spacious. Our family of 4 had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the condo. The unit itself is high enough (17th floor) to block out most of the street noise (we stayed during spring break so it got a little noisy), but we could still hear the sound of the waves below. Some nice additions in the unit included beach chairs and a boogie board that my daughter used. These were nice since we had not brought our own.

The first night we were there, we unloaded everything from our car into the unit and then went down to the pool. We were given a code for entry to the unit prior to our arrival, so we used this code when we got there with no problem. However, upon our return from the pool, we tried the same code in the door and it would not work. After many more times of trying to get this code to work, I called the rental property office. Long story short - they were eventually able to get a locksmith to come out and put a brand new code and lock on the door, however, we were locked out of our unit for about 2 hours with all of our belongings inside. As it was about 60 degrees outside that night, and my daughter had been swimming, she only had a wet bathing suit on and a towel. So we sat in our car with the heater on until Chris from the rental company came out. We were very grateful to him for coming as quickly as possible, and he even paid for dinner for our family that evening. After the locksmith replaced the code/lock, we were able to get in with no problem. The door handle was loose for the remainder of our stay, but it did not prevent us from getting in to the unit. I will add that during this ordeal, the security guard at Ocean Reef was extremely rude and not remotely helpful when we asked for his help after being locked out. He even stated to us, "Maybe next time you should stay at a hotel". Not a great representative of the condo in my opinion.

If you stay in this unit and are a coffee drinker, bring your own 8-12 cup size filters. There is a Mr. Coffee regular coffee maker but upon our first morning there, I discovered there were no filters to make the actual coffee. If you like soft bath towels, bring these as well, as the towels were scratchy and not sunburn friendly. Overall though, this was a very nice unit and we enjoyed our stay.
