We were so excited to be spendng a week there, but excited soon turned to disgust. Our unit was 1306. It was dirty and very musty smelling. The furniture was so nasty we bought sheets to sit on so we wouldn't have to sit on the couch. The chair was falling apart. The West Indies decor as described was really...

Spent New Years Eve at the resort. We had a two bedroom condo that was pet friendly. It was a great place to walk the dog in and around the resort. This really is an ideal location for dining and shopping. We are planning to go back in the summer.

We chose Maravilla for their pet-friendly policy first, and secondly for the free beach-setup included in the price. We rented through VRBO and found the unit in great shape and larger than it looked in the photos. This unit is on the fourth floor and conveniently located near the elevator but not where you would have a lot of foot...

We were looking for a pet friendly beach condo and stayed at Maravilla 2402. The Maravilla is across the street from the beach, but there is nothing but beautiful pristine beach on the other side of the street with private beach access for Maravilla guests. The condo building is "U" shaped and our unit was in the middle section #2...

My family and I just went to Maravilla for Thanksgiving. The unit 2206 was clean, decorated well and amply supplied with everything we needed for the week. The floor plan had a very friendly layout with access to the balcony and ocean view from both the living room and the master bedroom. The unit had two large bathrooms, ceramic tile...

Where do I begin.........we rented unit #2206. We rented through VRBO and the website of this unit (by owner) looked and sounded amazing. Upon arrival we found very little of what was advertised. West Indies decor was extremely cheap. The dust was very thick on nearly everything. We had to purchase 10 lightbulbs when we arrived. Remote controls had duct...

We rented unit 1103 at Maravilla for a week in June. This was our third year in a row staying at Maravilla. Our reservations were made through Southern Resorts. The cost was about $1700 including all taxes and administrative fees. It was a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit and easily housed our group of 4 adults and 3 kids. We...

I spent a week in April at Maravilla. We booked our condo through VBRO.com. Our condo did not have a beach view but was a short 1-2 minute walk. The condo was not quite as nice as shown in the pictures but in the end, we all felt like we had gotten a great deal for the price we paid....

We booked one week at Maravilla. The condo was just as expected (as in photos and descriptions). It was clean and neat. The noise level from the unit above was at times annoying but anyone who's lived in an apartment wouldn't mind. The location was perfect. We didn't go to spend time at the condo - it was mainly to...

We just returned today (Aug 4 2007) from our stay at a second floor unit that faces the beach. Our rental condo was newly decorated in a safari type and the view from the balcony superb. We chose Maravilla because it has some pet friendly units and looked nice on the website. We loved it, but were only given one...
