Condo needs repairs and upgrades
The first thing I did when we arrived was to take pictures of all the problems with the condo. Wallpaper was peeling, light bulbs were dead, doors separating. On top of that the bedrooms didn't have light fixtures built in, I'm assuming that you were supposed to use the lamps for lighting, but those were unplugged to charge phones. Pipes groaned/singed. TVs like that aren't made anymore. We had to take out the knobs in the kitchen so that the oven door could open fully.
The elevators in the complex kept breaking down, I can't put that on the room itself though.
Location was pretty good. Near a Publix/Winn Dixie. On a quieter beach. A bit of a drive to get to all the attractions in PCB.
Fantastic views, older condo
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Pinnacle Port A924. It suited our needs for a short trip to the beach. It is a great family atmosphere in a gated community on the far, quiet end of the beach.
The pros: Let me start by saying the employees at Counts Oakes Resort Properties went above and beyond, were pleasant, professional, and terrific to work with. The washer was not working and they personally brought fresh towels and checked on us throughout our trip. Definitely 5 star service from them!
The condo has fantastic 5 star views from every room. I loved being able to see both the beach and the lake. The seagulls and pelicans literally flew right by us on the balcony and I got some really great pictures! An absolutely stunning place to drink an early morning cappuccino or even sit in the chairs on the balcony and catch some rays. I don't know if this is always the case but beach chair rental rates were VERY reasonable! There are 2 grocery stores and several places to eat within a few minutes drive. We ate at Salty Sue's for my mom's birthday and it was wonderful!
The cons: Let me explain why I gave the condo 3 stars instead of 4. I totally understand that it is an older building but the decor and furniture are outdated and really could stand to be replaced/updated...the furniture was functional - we slept fine on the beds, the couch and chairs were a little "broken down" to me. There was enough of a musty smell after the air freshener that the cleaning crew used wore off that I went to the store and bought 2 table top air fresheners of my own to use during our stay. That could have been due in part to the broken washer (that they ordered parts to fix but hadn't come in yet). That may not be an issue once the washer is fixed. The wi-fi was spotty at best. Be sure you bring your own toilet paper (one roll provided per bathroom) and hair dryer when you are packing your toiletries and if you have any clothes you need to hang, you need to bring or buy hangers also.
Something I learned on this trip - ask about the pool hours. The pools closed at 7:30! I have never stayed anywhere that the pools closed so early. I work for a pool company and our pools are even open until 9:00. I was very pleased to see the pool company cleaning the pools daily though - definitely a plus in my book!
I wanted to be totally honest in my review so someone staying after me could weigh the pros and cons. But we really did enjoy our stay! A nice birthday getaway!
