"5th floor corner unit right by the stairs. Elevator was also convenient as well as carts to load and unload. Easy beach access. Nice big grill on nice BIG balcony with great view overlooking swimming pools, tennis courts, and ocean. Nice balcony furniture – table/4 chairs, lounges (2) and regular chairs (2).
The unit is quite spacious – much bigger and nicer than photos depict. (and more natural light than photos.) Furniture and appliances are well maintained; in very good shape. Kitchen is well-stocked with utensils, dishes, glasses, pots, pans, even coffee filters, & sugar. (Also had hot pads & couple of kitchen towels.)
Nice beds and sheets (Someone’s earlier review in 2014 is no longer applicable though we came prepared with our own sheets if needed!) All plumbing worked well except master tub was alittle slow to drain.
Internet – not one for the unit itself – have to use the one for the entire complex. Good luck. We could never get it to connect – too much traffic? We found some other unsecured connections in the building but those were slow.
TV in living room is color but when use DVD, it is black & white!! No kidding. Two talented adult men worked hard to find a solution but couldn’t. No remote for the DVD.
No remote for the DVD in 2nd bedroom and TV reception is terrible.
No remote for the master bedroom TV and TV was stuck on Spanish station.
No utensils for the BBQ grill so bring your own for cooking (if you like them long) and a wire brush for cleaning. (We had to buy them in town at the grocery store – and didn’t leave them.) Note: Center burners on grill don’t light automatically.
Air flow in 2nd bedroom was poor – it was quite warm in there with the door closed so left it open which helped alittle. No ceiling fan – bring a floor fan! Rest of unit was quite comfortable.
A few light bulbs were burned out (no replacements) – and some light switches are a bit tricky in how they control lamps & fixtures.
As for swimming pools – rather small, crowded, and water temp too warm. Skip the pools and head to the beach or the tennis courts! (We brought our own rackets & balls.)
Host (Scott) was very responsive by email before we arrived and by text after we got there. Tried to help us with internet suggestions.
Definitely recommend this property and particularly this unit and host.
Suggestion for restaurant not on the beaten list: Cafe Kranzler (awesome menu and food, beautiful atmosphere, great staff)"
