The pool was extremely dirty. Air conditioning would not go under 75. There were no bicycle rentals on the property. Although it says the pool closes at dusk, there were loud people at the pool all night. The location was great, but the management is not doing a good job with this place.

NEGATIVE: the resort informs you that they need a credit card placed on file when you arrive for "incidentals". When you read the paperwork it is so they can "inventory the unit for damages or missing firnishings, and charge you after departure. Made us feel as though we werent trusted, and there was no inventory allowed at check in or documentation of what they set as baseline . Left 7s worryong about all wear and tear, existing deferred maintenance, etc. Also pets were on property despite saying it was against policy.

We are sorry we have made you feel as though you weren't trusted. Prior to check-in you were sent a Confirmation that informed you that you would be asked for a credit card upon arrival per Expedia's policies. We do not place any charges or holds on the credit card and typically we let you know that its for such things as smoking in the unit or major damages. We did have a service dog on property at the time of your stay and many of the surrounding properties do walk through our property with their animals to get to the beach so it is very possible that the pets you saw were not staying here as we have a very strict no pets policy. I can assure you that your card was not charged upon departure and if there were a reason that we needed to charge your card we always inform the guest prior to charging it. Again, we sincerely apologize for making you feel as you were not trusted that was not our intention. Thank you for staying with us we hope you enjoyed your stay.

The property was ocean front but the view was somewhat obstructed by trees. Just steps from the ocean. Nice quiet location.

The property was in a great location and very clean and neat inside and out. Wonderful screened in patios in front of our condo and off the master bedroom. Just had a great stay! Sink in the master bedroom needs to be unplugged. Very slow to drain.
