6/10 Good

Too many issues
It was a duplex with 2 full flights of stairs. Outdoor screened balcony was dirty. Ground floor outdoor garage and entrance had too many cocoons hanging, wasp nest, bugs. There was a leak from the air conditioner vent in the ceiling. I put a pot under it and called. A man came, and was coming back the next day to fix it. Before we left, we had 3 pots under the vent and called the desk again to let them know. Found one roach walking in the kitchen. Spent 1/2 hour looking for the GFI, so we could use the hair dryer. Latch on sliding door was missing. Toilet in master bath had to be giggled to stop running. We informed the maintenance man, who said he would be back--------Just in town to visit with family-----

Place is great service not so much
Place is beautiful , service was another story ! After arriving and no key in the box we had to call every number we could find(including hotels.com) and no one could help us. Finally my husband found a number who then gave us 2 other numbers to get a human being. There is no front desk help except during normal business hours. Check in was listed as 4-11. Our condo was beautiful very clean and a decent view . Pool was amazing then our AC unit took a dump and we were told they couldn't do anything they called the electrician and waiting on a reply. No refund was given no attempt to move us was told to just turn the other unit down! So one night of high at 84* temp in the bedrooms was not what I paid for! When I called the resort they won't pick up I left messages and no one will return my call!

8/10 Very good

The condo is large and comfortable. Unfortunately my son got sick eating at the club house restaurant. We got there early and ate lunch at the restaurant. Very nice people though. Just an unfortunately incident. The place was nice and quiet until the last day when new neighbor moved in. Apparently the condo was not very constructed. You can hear the noise from the other side of the wall! Access to beach is a pain. Overall it is a fine place but not 4-5 stars!

I was disappointed about the hotel
If you don't play tennis there was not much to do. In my unit (509E) the hot water was only available in the shower & after mentioning this it was fixed, but not really - The bicycles were old 'clunkers' - fortunately the road was quite flat. The pool was cold, even though they said it was 84 F There was no access to the beach, and the Cedars West resort was across the street. It was necessary to drive 1 mile north or 1 mile south to the beach entrance. Not very convenient. Not the resort to go alone.

The best part of the Cedars Resort is the tennis sessions given by the pro each morning. The sessions vary every day and it is a great way to start the day. The hotel consists of condo's and you don't know what you will get. I asked for an updated condo with a view and I got and updated condo, no view. It was nice but the master room mattress was terrible,with a sink hole in the middle of it. The bathtub was small and leaked down to the first floor so I only tried to use it once. With a large tennis and exercise facility you would think there would be at least one hot tub. The bikes available were ok but old and rusty and the tires needed air. We managed to find two decent ones but we were there early. The office didn't have an air pump. For the price I could have had a room on the beach with a view and used tennis courts on my own and probably had a hot tub. Make sure you get to the outdoor music venues at various places on the entire island from Ana Maria to Lido early because the noise ordinance requires them to stop at 10:00pm

A tennis facility
An interesting place that has varied degrees of accommodation. It was especially frustrating arriving after 6 pm and not knowing where to go, how to find a key to my unit, not knowing what my unit was . . . How hard would it have been to have e-mailed instructions just in case my arrival was after 5pm when there is no one in the office.
