Good staff, great view. Nice beach. Johns Pass is a must visit while you're there. Many places to eat and drink. Many places to shop. Sam's Club and Walmart not too far away. No pool on site though. Only negative.
Do NOT stay here Where should I start? From the management to the room itself, I had many, many issues. With the room, the plus side is you are on the beach looking out over the beach and, that was a big plus. But it stopped there. The room was not well maintained. With chops on the floor and broken missing tiles in the bathroom, We got far less than what we paid for. The room was a 2-story loft, with the living room/murphy bed on the main level and a king bed on the second. Sounded nice until you realize that there were no curtains on the second level, as it has a railing that overlooked the living room and then a full wall of windows facing the beach. Nice in the daytime, but not so pleasant at sunrise. The beach was charming, but it is the same beach for every place on the strip, so it is nothing that this establishment did to make it great. In fact, the only contribution was the wooden chairs that were solely for the use of this “resort” These were literally broken and in terrible shape. From the sun coverings that would work to the backs that were no longer attached, just sad that no one here cares. The bathrooms were appointed with multiple small bars of soup, but no shampoo or conditioner was supplied in either bath. The biggest drawback, other than being able to sleep in in the AM, was the lack of sound proofing. Our neighbours were not noisy at all but we could hear them talking all night. Not word for word, but a loud muffled sound. Not too serious if you had the TV on, but when you want quiet and your neighbours are not ready for sleep, it made for an unpleasant time. We arrived early and the “manager” was there to great us, stating that it was a good thing that we arrived early since she stops working at this location at noon and we would have had to drive several miles down the road to another property to get checked in. I thought this was odd since check in was at 3 PM. Turns out that was not the only thing that was odd. As we toured ourselves, we found the hot tub, but there was NO POOL as advertised on their site. Maybe we had to drive several miles to locate it, but we never did. There was a cocktail party, but again, not at this location, but down the road. I don't know about you, but when it is 89 degrees outside, the last thing I want is a hot tub at 108 degrees. False advertising is a big NO NO in my books and it shows what you are in for when you find it. When it comes to management of a location, beware of this one. We were there as Hurricane Nicole approached landfall. I expressed my concern and stated that we wanted to cut our visit short and she said that she understood, but no refund would be available. She went on to say that she thought it would just be a bit of wind. I thought, so let me get this straight, we have to wait until we are in the middle of a major hurricane before we can check out early and get a refund. Well, by then we would have had to hunker down and stay another 2 days, which she told us that we could book and pay for if we needed to. No thanks. We stayed another night, but then it was on the news to seek shelter away from the coast, where there could be a storm surge of 4 feet or more. At that point, we packed up and left. It was in the AM, but no management was to be found. I would guess that most likely they were not coming on such a bad weather day. I felt for sure that with the warning to move away from the coast being on the news that this would qualify us for a refund, but to this day, my emails about this have gone unanswered. I wrote on both the refund and my $40 deposit for 2 plastic keys that I never received back, but at this point, I am not surprised. We have always stayed at Hotel/Motel/Resorts and this was our introduction to a Condo rental. It seemed like a great new adventure, but it was not the adventure I would ever like to repeat and for you, please do not stay here, as there are many choices. You will be opening yourselves to a heap of stress, and that is not what anyone wants on a get-a-way. …
Small location on the beach and nicely kept. Enjoyed being right on the beach. Timeshare 2 bdrm units faced the street and 1 bdrms face the the ocean. Note this when booking. Going back again in a few months
Fabulous location, short walk to the beach, small quaint hotel. Walk to many restaurants and John's Pass! We had a 1 bedroom ocean front unit, could use some updating but its the beach!!! Had a small jetted pool and many on site beach accessories to borrow. Despite the 330am fire alarm, would stay again!
The cheap single pane glass in these units are so bad I thought the window was open with loud traffic going by. The loud elevator motor and chimes kept us up till about 2am until things calm down. This is not a place for a good night sleep.
We rented the 2 bedroom it had a king in the master with its own bathroom stand up shower. The secondary bedroom has 2 twins this room is plenty big enough for 2 doubles or even queens. Location is wonderful you can walk to Johns Pass and now they have Caddy's restaurant a short walk away. The spa/pool small but doable as long as the heat is turned off in the warmer months. They have all chairs for your use and umbrellas as well !
This was our 2nd visit and we plan to go back again. Love the balcony on the Gulf and many shops, restaurants and bike riding trails nearby. We love to bike and rode the Pinnelas Trail and Courtney Campbell over Tampa Bay.
Right on the beach and a wonderful view of the ocean. Excellent accommodations. Good restaurant area. Staff was very helpful. Late check in was simple and efficient. Have stayed at this location three times and each vacation has been a delight.
Since this trip was on short notice, we choose a unit we thought would be sufficient from the units available. What we found was a dirty unit, including the dishes, silver wear, glasses and other. The bathroom was particularly dirty, not allowing us to use the bathtub. The tile floor had black spots. I could not have walked on the floors without shoes. watching staff disinfecting outdoor chairs, tables, and other it was unbelievable. ONE rag and a bottle I believe disinfectant that was used until the originally light rag was black. One positive part was covered parking.
There is a metal box with a phone in it by the entry door from the garage. The entry door is locked and requires a room key to gain access which is good. Use the phone to call the office on the first floor and Mary will let you in, take you to the office and check in. She's very nice, and helpful. We also met Nickie, the housekeeper, who was really sweet and told us that if we needed more towels during our stay we could just let her know. We didn't need towels but we did run out of trash bags and she gave us some. Our one bedroom unit #204 couldn't have been any more perfect. Nickie did a great job cleaning our unit before we arrived. It was spotless! Due to the coronavirus pandemic I had brought cleaning supplies and sanitized everything. Nickie probably already did this but we take extra precautions that a lot of people don't bother with due to underlying health issues. The bed was comfy, plenty of pillows, and blankets. Large closet and plenty of drawer space. Ironing board, iron, and safe in the closet. TV and DVD player in the bedroom. Stackable washer/dryer unit in bathroom. Soap powder, hand soap, toilet paper, plenty of towels and washcloths. Full kitchen complete with glass top range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker in the freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffee pot, plenty of dishes, cookware, silverware, and miscellaneous kitchen utensils. There was a roll of paper towels, one trash can liner, 5 or 6 coffee filters, a travel size bottle of dishwashing liquid, 6 or 8 tablets for the dishwasher, a SOS pad, a soapless scouring pad, pot holders, dish towels, and dish rags. A small kitchen table and chairs was also in the unit. In the living room there was a couch, chair, and 3 ottomans (2 with storage), TV, DVD player, murphy bed, plenty of closet and drawer storage in the murphy bed unit with plenty of pillows and bedding in it. There was a spacious balcony with outdoor furniture and a drying rack for beach towels, swim suits, etc. There was a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean. They do ask that you keep your outside light off and close the curtains and blinds at night because it disturbs the turtles and hatchlings on the beach. There is no pool, but there is the largest hot tub that I've ever seen. It looked very clean too. There's even an ADA lift chair next to it. There's also tables with umbrellas and chairs in the hot tub (spa) area. You have to use your door key card to gain entry to this area. A beautiful, white sand beach is right over the dune behind the pool. It is a quiet and peaceful resort in a good location. Publix, a large grocery store, is about a mile away. John's Pass Village and Boardwalk is also a little less than a mile away. We will definitely check availability here on our next visit to Florida.…
