We have stayed at this property many times over the last 15 years. During that time the condo's have been dated but always reasonably clean. What has kept us coming back is the proximity to the beach and the views of the beach and ocean. After this most recent stay (in which we rented 3 units for our entire family) I can honestly say I will never stay there again. Our unit (601) not only was dated, the furniture was worn out (much of it looked like something one would put out for trash) and in addition it was very dirty. The blinds hadn't been dusted for months, there were dead flies and other bugs on the window sills, the kitchen had food splatter in various places up the walls, the rug in the living area and the rug under the table still had food crumbs from the previous occupants. The concertinered walls (room separators) were covered in dirty fingerprints. The refrigerator and stove while looking fairly new did not work well (we had to turn the refrigerator up to full cold level and wait 24 hours before it finally cooled down), the oven took forever to heat up and then did not cook properly. The closet in the living room/dining room was filled with old paint cans, kitchen dishes and other general crap that looked like it needed to be thrown out. The Utility room was filled with old dirty mops and numerous paint cans, no broom or dustpan to be found anywhere. The extra blankets and pillows were thrown on the floor in a bedroom closet unfolded (probably used by previous occupants and not washed).
The other unit rented 501 was dated, but furniture was in better condition. However, this unit was also very dirty. Mildewed shower curtain, rusted kitchen utensils, dirty stove top, food spatter up the kitchen walls. The other unit rented 1403 seemed to be the best out of all, generally more updated, can't speak to the cleanliness on that one.
In general this property looks reasonably maintained on the outside (with the exception of the elevators - which are pretty nasty)is neglected on the inside and inadequately cleaned. The owners and/or the homeowners association needs to take time to go through each unit periodically and not only give them a deep clean but also look at the contents and replace linens, utensils, kitchen appliances, pots, pans, dinnerware etc when they wear out or break. In addition the housekeeping staff needs to do a much better job. After all check out is 10 am and check in is not until 4 pm more than adequate time to clean well.
As previously mentioned I will not stay at this place again and would not recommend it. There are many other condo's on this strip of beach that are much better than this.
