This is our second time staying at The Avalon on 7 Mile Beach. The location is superb. June is "Low Season" so we practically had the beach to ourselves. It was rare to see more than a handful of people. Unit 28 is a great condo. Very nicely decorated and well appointed, no complaints there. We booked at a very nice rate, lower than usual. Later found out this was due to installation of hurricane windows. No problem as we weren't bothered at all.
I was bothered upon check in to learn that our rate was increased. I told the management staff that that was not the rate we booked at. Had my deposit form, etc. They said yes they knew that but there "was an error when you made the reservation." I didn't push it as I should have. Their only explanation was there was a mistake with the online booking. Really poor business practice. Found another recent Trip Advisor review with a similar complaint. Another "ding" against the Avalon is the pool is never clean. I know it is tough to keep a public pool clean, but really there were so few people using the pool, vacuuming every morning should have taken care of this.
Again, Unit 28 was great. As was Unit 25 we stayed in before. Location is superb! Gorgeous beach. Management and upkeep need to improve.More
