I travel quit a bit and attempt to be fair when I write reviews. There are things I both liked and disliked.. The complex itself is very nice. Beautiful landscaping, very nice pool. The common areas are clean and well maintained. The entire facility is fenced and gated, we felt safe there. The guards are nice and professional. The rental office forgot to give us our wristbands. That was annoying to have to drive back and get them. At that point we had already spent eight hours in the car. Back to the wristbands. My girlfriend and I went to SPI for a romantic get away. Those wristbands are really, really bothersome. Every time we touched each other, hugged or whatever, the wristbands were right in the way. What's wrong with clip on badges or making them with Velcro straps or something?
The condo itself, we weren't really pleased with. My first and biggest complaint is that there is a rusty pipeline and bulldozer on the beach directly behind It. This was NOT disclosed and I'm irritated about it. I realize that construction, dredging and so forth are necessary to have great beaches, but not telling people about this "eyesore" is inexcusable. We like to sit on the balcony and enjoy the water-not a rusty pipeline and construction equipment.
The advertisement said "plush" towels. Not quit. They are as plush as an old dishrag. There are tiny gnat like bugs all over the inside of the condo.This IS the coast though and bugs are part of it. If I find out in the days to come, that they are something other than gnats, I will be very unhappy. The condo was pretty clean, stocked with all necessary dishes and utensils, it wasn't BAD. It was just not well maintained. The front door is hard to lock and unlock. My girlfriend couldn't open it at all. The water pressure in the showers, both of them, is awful. A couple of the electrical outlets are worn out and plugs just fall out of them. The TV, cable box and router all use the same outlet and the way the wires are routed is shoddy.
I'm sure my review sounds harsh, it's not meant to. I meant for it to sound average and it WAS average, or maybe a bit below average. On the other hand. The price wasn't terrible, but it wasn't all that great either. If I had it to do over again. I'd spend a little more and choose something nicer.
