Ok for the short time we had to book
The bathtub had rust stains in the bottom since it would not drain properly. Parking was sparse, especially considering my children and i have a physical disability. The beach access was not in the best position for the condominium. The room was a good size for what we needed. Everything was clean and in great shape! We loved the pool! The ocean view from the pool was beautiful. The pool was pretty shadded, which was nice since i have an infant. Overall the condominium was nice, but we most likely will not book here again.
Hi Joshua, we are happy the size of this unit was what you needed and that everything was clean and in great shape. Also, glad you found the ocean view from the pool to be beautiful and the pool was shaded for your infant. We are sorry for the parking situation considering the physical disabilities. The rust stain and drain problem was referred to our Property Management Team and have been repaired. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
The condo was great. I would not plan to do any real cooking in the room.
I was a little disappointed that the rental company did not warn me that there would be a large group (over 800) staying in the Origin condos and the one next door. We could not use the pool because there were so many people in it all day. Also the elevators were terrible because the kids were using them to go up and down all day too. The kids were fine and respectful but it was crazy! They had to know this was planned. I would possibly stay at this condo again but not through this rental company!! I know they needed to fill the 3 nights but we did not get to enjoy our vacation.
Hi Kerry, we are sorry for the experience you had with the large group staying there and the kids playing in the elevators, but this was a situation that we were not aware of and beyond our control. There are other rental companies who book condos at this property and we have no way of knowing when they book and to who they are booking. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
We will be back
Thank you for the feedback. We would love to have you stay with us again at Real Joy.
I am very disappointed with the mattress on the sofa bed. This should only be listed to accommodate two people. I tried sleeping on it and then closed it up and tried sleeping on the sofa itself and that was also uncomfortable. I had to sleep in the king size bed with two other people for the entire stay. I wasn’t aware that we would be expected to wash our own towels and purchase our own toilet paper and ice. A guy from Realjoy brought an air mattress to us but it needed batteries so he said he would bring batteries back to us for it but never came back. So that was also bad customer service.
When we arrived at the condo we went to the front desk and they told us to go across the street to sign in and the blonde lady at the front desk was very rude and said she couldn’t help us to call the RealJoy number and go back across the street to get our access door code. The next day we couldn’t get into the gate to access the beach so we had to go to the office across the street again and they provided this for us. Sad to say but I doubt we would stay here again due to all of the inconveniences.
Hi Joy, we are sorry you were disappointed with the comfort of the sofa bed and apologize the guy did not return with the batteries for the air mattress. We do try to provide excellent service to our guests and this is an exception to our performance. The front desk at the property complex handles many Property Management Companies and does not have all their information but is no excuse to be rude – for that we apologize. We will refer your issues regarding access codes to our Property Management Team for assessment in changing this process. Thank you for staying with Real Joy.
Property was nice
The property was nice and extremely convenient to the beach and other places life restaurants and shopping. The room we stayed in was also very nice but the bed was horribly uncomfortable. There was a large dip in the middle so all night you had to sleep on a slope. Not comfortable and we did not sleep well at all. Also the elevator closes to our room was not working so we had to walk to one down the hall. Overall our stay was great but they do need to invest in changing out the mattress.
Management company needs to learn customer service
We hoped to enjoy a long weekend at the beach. Before our arrival and during our stay we received continuous texts from mgmt co. asking when we would arrive and warning if we arrived early we would be charged extra but if we arrived later they would be grateful for extra cleaning time. Then they began texting to find out when we were leaving, again so if we left early their cleaning crew could begin early but if we over stayed they would charge us extra. Nice unit but no dishwasher as stated in contract and really turned off by their need to nail down our coming and going. Will stay away from Real Joy in the future.
