"We stayed here in August after the summer hustle and bustle was over. The condo was well stocked with extra pillows, towels, and was clean.
This was on the 23rd floor which is the top floor. You have to adjust to the height a little when you get there. After the first day we didn't have any issues with being on the balcony and looking down. The mornings were magical when you looked out to the ocean and see dolphins swimming in the distance or schools of fish going by. Bring binoculars!! Parking garage was great and the space was very close to the elevator. It was very easy to get our belongings up the the room.
This has no bearing on the owners or property manager but Tropic Winds doesn't have a very large pool or any bar service. It was my fault and I assumed they would have bar service at the facility or close by. If you stay here during peak season you might also have trouble finding a chair by the pool to lay out since there was only about 10 chairs. The room comes with two chairs and one umbrella by the beach. We had a group of four adults. We were told its $40 per day to rent two beach chairs/umbrella or $35 per day if you rent consecutively. We decided not to rent the extra beach chairs and ended up making friends with the three people next to us. We told them they could use ours if we weren't there (and likewise). The next day the beach service kid came by and told our new friends they could not sit in our chairs. Our new friends said, "its OK, we have permission." and beach service kid said, "no, you don't. You are not allowed to sit in them."
Also, they have a rule about no drinks (regardless if they were in protective containers or aluminum cans) by the pool or hot tub. Security said they didn't care if we had them but if the president of the HOA saw anyone they would ask us to get rid of our drinks. By the way, we didn't have drinks, this is what we were told when we inquired. The only reason I wouldn't come back is the rules. Seems too strict and when we are on vacation we want to relax and have a drink by the pool."
