Black Mold on Ceiling, AC doesn't cool below 78, Floors leave feet black...No lie

  • 1 of 5

When we got to the unit it looks pretty but as we got in and started looking around turning on lights was another story. There was black mold on the ceiling and a lot of it has been sprayed over With a can of white spray paint. We thought the AC was just turned down but if you like a sauna room this is the room for you. AC never cooled room..we called management where a guy came out with a temperature laser light and pointed it inside the back of the air unit and it said 64 but believe me no way it was. If you

love your clean feet after you take your shoes off...forget it they would be black just from the walk from the bathroom...nasty. Sheets were clean but duvet and pillows nasty...wifi and tv disconnected all the time. Phone in condo never worked from day one. Bathroom was so hot your face melted vent for AC. AC was window unit no way it was efficient. Should advertise it sleeps three at the most by the time you fold out the sofa there was no room to walk between a pull out sofa and the bed, made it awkward for those sleeping in bed. Only three washcloths, four towels and two Hand towels. Dehumidifier ran constantly with hot air just billowing out. We felt for the money it was overpriced and not worth it...will never stay here again and will tell all my friends about the lack of responsiveness from property owners. They only sent someone the night before we left about wifi and phone and when we were not dressed and ask them to hold on they left. We were there wed thru sun. Oh and be wary of anything free.

Small and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay. I wish the pool and beach access bands were included in the cost but was not very expensive to purchase there. Everything was clean. Loved that they left some laundry detergent for us to use to wash and dry our swim suits. If your looking for a nice place to stay centrally located to everything this is it!

Great place for the price.

  • 3 of 5

Nice resort for the most part. No indoor bar and the outside bar stays closed a lot. The hallways stay hot and muddy and the gym is horrible. Besides that this room was great besides the mattress. Pool is great but crowded, same with the beach. Use the stairs here unless you don't care waiting all day for a elevator. All in all it was a great vacation. Lots of kids here so your kids will love it. If your looking to avoid screaming kids and college age people this wouldn't be the place. Either way, it's a much better deal then a hotel room.
