Very nice, clean, excellent staff onsite also
We really enjoyed our stay for spring break. Gorgeous room with classy decor (I like that better than over the top beach style). The complex is very clean (including the team "cleaning" very early 8? which woke us a few mornings) but again, glad it's clean! Loved the onsite activities for kids like painting on the beach, balloon maker, and Nonnie's Ark with animals (all free).
Only things keeping it from 5 stars: in-suite laundry would be ideal (there was a laundry onsite for $1.25 washes and $1 drying), and keyless room entry (ie. codes) so that we don't have to worry about misplacing the key. But overall a great place that we'd enjoy visiting again!

No prior notice
We were in the condo from Oct 13-18. We arrived at about 6:30 pm due to 2 delays at the airport. We were given a diffferent location to get the key. The streets were very dark and unable to find the location. When we finally arrived at the location to pick up the key, there was no lights inside the building to be able to see the box were we are supposed to get our key to the condo which is about 5 min away.
We were lucky that a woman was upstairs and heard us . When we asked her the location of our condo, she can’t even tell us the location as she said they manage a lot of condos in the area. It was really upsetting as we traveled all day and we were so tired and hungry by that time.
On the last 3 days of our stay in the condo, we found our lounge chairs in the porch overlooking the pool all gone. We saw some men working outside our porch . We were locked inside as they put a piece of wood at the door outside so no one can come out the porch.
One in our company left his slippers out the porch and unable to retrieve them.
It is very disrupting to us that these things happen without telling us beforehand that the key to our condo is to be picked up somewhere else. The notice is that we cannot pick up the key until 30 min of our arrival.
Also we were contacted a couple of weeks that there may be some work done in the area of our condo but that they were not sure . I called a week before our arrival, someone told me that our condo won’t be affected. We were not notified when we arrived that in a few days this men will remove our lounge chairs to do work outside our porch and that we cannot go outside our porch overlooking the pool.
With these disruptions, we could have gotten some refund and an apology but we did not. We were disappointed.
Hi E.O., we are sorry for the inconveniences of your 2 airport delays. We wish you would have contacted us for specific directions to the condo because the personnel at the airport post office are not familiar with the location of our properties. We apologize for the lounge chairs being removed from the porch because this type of work is not normally performed during guest occupancy and we were not notified of this schedule change. If you had contacted us, we would have delivered additional lounge chairs for the porch. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
No we don't j have internet and tv chennal
Hi Sisay, we hope you enjoyed your stay at this newly remodeled condo and apologize for the inconvenient issue with the internet and TV. This was a local cable problem and has been resolved. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
Last vacation for the summer.
Condo was really nice, close to beach and the main strip for restuarants and souvenirs.
Hi Robert. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely condo. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the convenience to the beach and to the local eats and shops. We hope you will come back to visit! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
