      Pretty view, good location.

      The unit smells of mold/mildew. Maybe it would smell better if the carpet on the stairs was removed? Very pretty view of the ocean, but the larger bed upstairs has the hardest most uncomfortable mattress. We did not sleep well at all during our stay. I woke up with back pain and stiffness after the first night. We ended up sleeping on the couch and one of the smaller children’s beds which were a little softer.I understand that each unit is individually decorated, so hopefully the beds are more comfortable in other units.

      Great vacation!

      We enjoyed having a laid back and peaceful beach vacation. We had the beach completely to ourselves most of the time, which took me by surprise as it was mid July. We definitely enjoyed our vacation and would stay here again!

      Too Many Problems

      I wanted to like this place due to the large space. It only had one bathroom and Hotels said it had 2. Stayed at this property before and the condo had 2. The kitchen flooded, the toilet ran, spider webs and dead bugs behind furniture, ants invading through sliding doors, stains in carpet, rust on fixtures, beds uncomfortable and lacking bed bug/allergy protectors, Direct TV was not hooked up, and restaurant hours terrible (5-9PM). I do have to say the food at the restaurant was wonderful!

      A mixed bag

      The resort, while dated, is currently going through some renovations, some of which are pretty extensive. Even with the construction, you could hardly tell some of the condo buildings were being renovated. The workers were very quiet. Since each unit is privately owned, there is no consistency amongst units. If you happen to stay in one that isn't properly maintained, you're out of luck. While ours was comfortable, it was clearly dated. The resort management needs to seriously consider some standards for all unit owners. It seems like the property management is responsible for the outside upkeep as the renovations were focusing on the decks and siding and windows. The location was fabulous...right on the beach and a 1-minute walk. The Driftwood Bistro was a joke. The wait was like 1.5 hours each night. No take out was available or reservations accepted. We did manage to secure some drinks at the bar, but after getting the drinks, we weren't allowed to stay at the bar and was kicked out because they said the bar was available only for people who were ordering food. Restaurant service was almost non-existent on the island so I would recommend bringing your own food. Many of the restaurants only serve people who are staying at associated resorts. We would stay again at the resort mainly because of the location and it was quiet, but the entire resort is in need of a facelift.

      Th resort was great. The room needed updating. Needed some major work. Was a little disappointed in the room. Dead branches on sidewalk to villa and dead tree. Needed Lanacaping. Chairs on porch were very dirty and needed to be cleaned

      Staff was friendly, room was comfortable and everything was clean. Bathroom was small and could use an update. There is some construction going on which I could hear in the morning but nothing major. Overall a nice place to stay and enjoyed having a kitchen to prepare a couple of meals in.

      Our check in time was for 4:00pm. We understand that things happen in all lines of business, so when we checked in at 4:30 we were just eager to get to our room and decompress after a long day of traveling. However, our room was not what Expedia had told us it would look like. It also was very dirty. Carpeting had stains, holes and scuffs on walls, ceiling vent in kitchen hanging off, mold on the bathtub faucet, dirt splatters on kitchen appliances as well as bedroom furniture, stains on the top of the toilet and The room had a very musty smell that was a bit overwhelming at times. We had waited all day to be checked in so going to the bathroom wasn’t a priority when we finally got inside, within a few minutes unannounced maintenance had arrived to fix our toilet because it couldn’t flush. I had spoken to who i believed to be the manager a few times both in person and over the phone in regards to my aggravation and dissatisfaction with the room. I understand bookings may have been maxed or occupied already, but she did not seem too concerned about our situation nor were we provided with any accommodations or extra amenities for the situation we were put in. It almost seemed she could not be bothered. She told me if I could get in contact with Expedia and have them authorize a refund she would gladly give me my money back. Getting in contact with Expedia customer service was near impossible, wait times exceeded 3 hours which left us trapped in the situation we were in.
