Reviewed 17 April 2010

I visited the resort with my family from March 21st thru March 28th of this year.The resort was easy to find and when we went inside-we couldn't believe how nice it was.It was soooo clean! There were 6 of us so the resort gave us 2 condos on the 4th floor-405 and 407.They were clean and the setup was perfect for us!My parents are in their 80"s and found the resort easy for them to get around. The rooms overlook the ocean and the balconeys were cleaned often to remove the bird dodo.The staff were so helpful.The location is very good.We would come back to this resort again! Enjoy your stay!

Wow I am so shocked that Westgate would put their name on something like this. I mean once u have stayed in orlando in the plalace and in the villas this seems like w.t.f. happened. I mean yeah ur on the beach and all but the rooms r so small that u can't move but in a striaght line, and when u enter it's like bam there is ur bed. Get this my daughter walked in and started crying and saying she wants to go home so u fiqure and she is 4yrs old.....We fell for it this time but unless upgrades are coming we will not be revisiting......

We own at Westgate Vacation Villas is Kissemmee. we stayed here 4 years ago and fell in love with the beach. There were 4 adults the first time and it was a little cramped. The patio was surrouned by a high wall and the chairs were short so you had to stand to see the beach. My husband and I came back, by ourselves this time, and the upgrades they mentioned were happening are mostly done. The balconies have been fixed the walls are gone and there are nice new railings, the sliding doors have been replaced as well. There is a new front desk for Westgate customers and it is staffed from 9 am until 11 pm. Very friendly as all other Westgate location employees have been. Everything was clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were spotless as was everything in the kitchen. The other reviews I read were much older and the work that has been done has brought this resort close to the standards of several others. It is not the same and should not be a distination in-it's self as some resorts are. This is an adult friendly resort and we love it. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. We can see the Daytona Beach Pier from out balcony,and walk from the pool area directly onto the beach.

We've been owners now for 15 yrs. And it's only getting worse. Last year we were'nt allowed in our BOUGHT AND PAID FOR ground floor unit which cost us an EXTRA 1000.00. Because, "they were doing work in the room". LOL, funny cuz we went down there mid-week and FOUND and TALKED TO a bunch of MOTORCROSS kids in there!!!!!!! OUR ROOM!
We were then charged an extra 150.00 for a screw that we had our neighbor remove from the balcony door, (as my husband does not smoke) so me and my gf smoked on the balcony.
Now we're being told on the phone by customer service that, that incident didnt happen w/ the motorcross kids. Hmmm....Funny! Cuz my husband and I were there! Talking to them!
Dont ever rent from this hotel! They'll treat you like garbage, they'll take every kind of advantage of you and charge for every little thing. 150.00 for a screw??? Are ya kiddin me????
It's too bad that we BOUGHT THIS FROM WEST GATE RESORTS! But then again, the guy running the place didnt have his head stuck up his [--], and would never let this sort of crap be done!!!!
Be sure to tell your friends NEVER stay at this place!!!! Infact WARN them...It's just a rip off!!!!
We love Bike Week, and if it wasnt for Bike Week, we'd never ever ever go back!

We were expected to stay in a cute little place by the ocean during our last stay in Florida. Nothing fancy but clean. We rented the place from the owner directly. While booking on the phone the owner made it sounds like the place is well kept. But during our 3 days stay in room 202, it was a horrible experience.
1. Bath tub is extremely dirty, the drain stopper was not even on, and it is sitting on the edge of the tub. Water does not drain properly, so as you shower, you'll see dirty, yucky, blackish stuff comes back from the drain. Very disgusting.
2. No remote control in the room, the owner would not tell you until you were in the room and call her and ask where the remote is, she would tell you the previous guest accidentally took it away. TV only has few antenna channels (with poor reception).
3. The room smells like somebody has been smoking in there for a long time.
4. We did not use their towels until our last day, coming home; both my son and I get rashes on our body from using their towels.
5. There is no air condition in the hallway and the room is adjacent to the trash dumpster, so it always smells bad.
6. During booking, when asked about internet connection, the owner told us sometimes there may not be good reception. But during our stay, we tried many time, we were not able to connect to the internet even once.
Overall, the place is filthy and unhygienic,
After called the owner and reported the problems, she acts like all are new to her and showed no intention to correct the issues.
It is shocking a room in such a filthy condition is still not pulled out of the market.
Please do not rent the place for your health and your loved ones’. Please do not let those lovely pictures on their website mislead you.

Says it's sleeps 4 however 2 of you should be little kids. My husband , myself, a 23 year old and a 14 year old. Way too cramped. Good for 2 but that's it. Great location, Nice pool. Just ok....next time I will spend the extra money and get a better hotel.

We rented an oceanfront studio suite on the second floor, room 202. We received a discount on our rental because at the time, they were unsure if upgrades to the balconies would be completed before our arrival. This was fine with me, because the owner told me that the construction company had agreed to not work on Thursdays or Fridays of event weeks (we went down for the Coke Zero 400), and we weren't planning on getting to the condo until about 6:30pm or later Wednesday night.
When we got there, the room reeked of cigarettes. It smelled like someone used the room as a pool hall prior to our arrival! We couldn't open the balcony door to air out the place because of the construction outside. No problem, we would go buy some Febreze or something to freshen it up a bit.
As we were unpacking, we noticed the condition of the bathtub. The floor of the tub was cracked and stained and there was a nasty brown ring around the drain. We couldn't get it clean.
There was no remote to the TV, which only had the 5 or 6 antenna channels (with poor reception).
After a mostly sleepless night (the bed was comfortable, however), we called the owner and told her we could not stay here any longer, and she moved us to room 320. This room was not ocean front, it was on the opposite side of the complex, but it was lovely. Clean, but the bathtub was also not something I would want to sit in. After we were moved, the rest of our experience at the Harbour Beach was nice.
