Reviewer Comments:

The floor was not clean when we arrived as there were clumps of hair littered about the floor in different areas of the unit and certain areas were sticky. We decided to not worry about it but then several of the lights did not work until they "warmed up" which sometimes took 30 minutes. We called about the lights and were told the maintenance man had just left for the day but would be back at 9 am the next morning and they would turn in our problems. A little later when we tried to use the master bath show, we discovered the tub did not drain and figured we would just tell the MM when he showed up the next day. The MM still had not shown up by 12:30 so I called Starkey again. He showed up shortly thereafter, did not fix the lights, dug up a pile of hair out of the bathtub and left. When we went to use the shower that evening, the tub was worse. In fact, over 12 hours later there was water standing in the tub. Another MM then came in to fix shortly after I called for the 3rd time but I was not impressed with the promptness or the repairs of the first MM and the service from the property management company as Penny's tone and words conveyed that she somehow thought this was my fault this was happening (she specifically said she had not heard of the problems I was reporting before with a very sarcastic tone) and I was expecting too much for lights to work and a tub to drain. We understand that maintenance problems my arise unexpectedly and appreciate this was the first they heard of the problems. The attitude and promptness with which the problems were fixed is the issue. We have stayed in other units in the complex for the past 5 years and have not had any problems. However, this was our first time using Starkey and will likely be our last.

Reviewer Comments:

The Grand Caribbean was the perfect place for our beach vacation with 3 small children. I loved that the pool area is enclosed so there is no place for kids to wonder off. The boardwalk to the beach is easily accessible from the pool and takes you to a beautiful stretch of beach. We stayed in unit G1004 which is on the ground floor. The views are better higher up, but the proximity to the pool was perfect for us. Also, it was nice not to have to lug our stuff up the elevator or stairs. We would stay here again in a minute.

We had a great time. Our fishing trip was very successful. We enjoyed our stay in the love G1004 Island Retreat. All the things we needed were right there. Only one issue: the drain in the Master bath tub was so slow, to the point of being stopped up. We used plunger and removed lots of hair, but wasn't totally fixed - needs some attention.

Reviewer Comments:

We always enjoy staying at Grand Caribbean. This was our 5th time, but 1st time staying in G1004-Island Retreat. The access to the pool and beach is so convenient! This specific condo has the pool right outside your patio, so you can even put the kids down for a nap while having a swim. The rooms and common areas were clean and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds in the laundry room. The refrigerator would not cool when we got there, but that sort of thing is not always in control. They were quick to get a new one ordered and shipped overnight. Starkey even dropped off bags of ice for us to refill our ice chests. The coffee maker was broken as well, but who knows what guests might have done that before us. We just bought a new one and left it there for future tenants. Enjoy! I'd stay here again and would recommend it for anyone looking for a nice place at Grand Caribbean.

Reviewer Comments:

We recently stayed at Grand Caibbean near Port Aransas. We were in a ground floor unit, perfect for our family. Pool outside our fenced in patio but only accessible through a breezeway. Great location for beach and pool vacation. A few miles from town. It is behind what appears to be a failed real estate development. Our biggest disappointment was that there were no shampoos and one little bar of soap for 6 people to share. We had to drive to town at 8pm to buy our own. The 3rd "bedroom" was bunkbeds in a large laundry room. Ok for single son but would have been awkward if we had traveled with couples. Other than those complaints had a great time.

Reviewer Comments:

It was great, but would like to make note of a few things: ice maker and freezer didn't work properly, dry function on dishwasher didn't work, pool needed to be cleaned out more often, and back patio chairs were really uncomfortable. Other than that we loved having a private pool, easy bridge walk to the beach and a wonderful family vacation experience!
