This place is across from John's Pass- nice location. Everything in the condo is old and could definitely use updating. It doesn't face the ocean, but has a good view of the intercoastal. From the kitchen to the bedrooms and bathrooms to the family room, everything needs to be updated and painted. I don't believe it's dirty, just needs a facelift. I would stay in this building again but definitely not this unit.
We absolutely loved the location, however the unit and the staff left much to be desired. The condo itself had ? Mold on the curtains and boxsprings. The blinds in the room were broken. Much of the furniture had broken parts- especially dangerous with 2 small kids- and water damage. Very, very dated furniture and uncomfortable beds! I would never recommend this condo! When we expressed our displeasure with the staff, I was met with a rude attitude and was told someone would be up to speak with us the next day...after 5 days we realized nothing was being done for us.
In the maderia complex there are loads of nice units, but this isn't one of them!
When we first walked into the unit, I was a little concerned. Despite what appeared to be new ceramic in the main living area and kitchen, the bathrooms were in desperate need of updating and the overall decor was more than a little worn and dated. However, as the week went on, those details seemed unimportant in comparison to the pros of this location.
The beds are super comfy, the kitchen is well equipped and there were plenty of towels for all of us. The view from the balcony is of Johns Pass Village and Boardwalk and we actually really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and listening to the entertainment from the Bamboo Grill right across the street. (We also strolled on over there a couple of times - staff, food, prices and entertainment made it hard to stay away!).
The pool while small was always inviting as were the residents - someone always said 'good morning' and the people are all very social. I really enjoyed soaking up the sun, taking the periodic dip in the pool and returning to my lounger to read my book. Access to the beach was perfect and I have to say, we've stayed in a lot of places on the Gulf Coast, from Siesta Key to St. Pete to Treasure Island and this was our first time on Madeira, but it certainly won't be our last. For me, nothing soothes the soul more than walking along the beach and the sand on this beach, while shelly in places, was for the most part soft and not to hot to walk on - we loved it!
Beyond Johns Pass, the comforts of the condo and the beach, Madeira Norte is ideally located for easy access to grocery, pharmacy, liquor and convenience stores and there are so many options for refreshments and/or dining, it's impossible to squeeze them all in, in one vacation. As an added hint, ask one of the residents down by the pool if they have any suggestions - they're a wealth of information!
Across the street from John's Pass village and boardwalk. Near Busch Gardens, Fl.
