From the outside, the Hamilton Cove Villas are stunning and really beautiful. You can't get a better ocean view. Our family of 3 rented room 2-33, not sure what the previous "reviewer" was looking at, but it was awful, awful, awful! We walked in to a room with trash on the coffee table, the couch was disgusting and dirty, the carpet under the dining room table and bedroom where very stained and dirty. (I did not want to eat looking at that carpet through that glass dining table.) There was no way I would cook or even heat up food in the kitchen or use any of the mismatched kitchenware. For glassware, we could choose from the plastic, in-town, "free cup with drink" cups or the 1 plastic margarita cup. Did i mention the hairs in the bed? I was almost in tears, especially with what we had paid for the room, 60 days in advance. CIVR manager quickly moved us to 1-56 which was only slightly better. 1-56 has no where to set anything down in the bathroom, the TV in the bedroom made a very loud humming when turned on, and my socks were black when I walked around the place(I sure wasn't going barefoot). There was also so much dust under the valances in the bedroom and on the bathroom sliding door(in the molding).Luckily my parents were in room 2-31 which was better and we spent most of our time over there. These owners really need to "gut" these circa 1985 condos and do some updating. Also, the $110 "cleaning" fee is a joke because these places sure aren't being cleaned. I want so bad to like these places because of the gorgeous balconies and views, but they are making it very difficult. The golf cart was a highlight and we really enjoyed going into town. If the owners of these units would update furniture and carpets and management would enforce the cleaning, this would be a perfect getaway! Beware of 2-33 and 1-56!
