“Golf Villa Review”
Reviewed 31 May 2011

Stayed in one of the golf villas after being surprised by a $105 hidden "cleaning" fee. Went to the room after 2 hours of waiting for it to get "inspected" and "cleaned." Showed up and trash bags were in the hallway and sand was EVERYWHERE. I couldn't believe it. So we had to pay $105 to clean our own villa and take out our own trash, make our own bed? I asked the receptionist if we could get a refund, who supposedly spoke to a manager who told her that they could credit our account for the next time we visit. Yeah right. Her excuse was that if we told them immediately, they could refund our money, but really, that would have made no difference.

The noise is alright at night except for some birds who love to chirp at 3am. The beds were relatively nice and comfy. The location is prime location to the beach, shopping, and great food!

My personal opinion is that this property is just far too large to look at the details to make every customer's experience a positive one. You can't blame them, but at the same time, I wish the service was much better and that they would really take some time to properly staff to really help accommodate travelers who may have absolutely no idea what he or she is doing and not assume.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the Ariel Dunes, not the Villas

I recently took my fiance' on a suprise birthday trip to stay at the Seascape resorts in Destin Florida. We stayed in, Ariel Dunes II. After extensive research and review readings I THOUGHT this resort sounded great!
As soon as we checked into our room the problems started. The air condition in our unit 1606 was broken. The hotel management made us wait 4 hours while they "fixed" the problem. 4 hours later at (9pm) we were told the air condition could not be fixed and we were then "upgraded" to another room. We missed out on important plans because we had to wait for the repair people.
The hotel put us in a 2 room condo on a lower level. The entire reason I booked the first room was because of the great views. It was not an upgrade. We did not need the extra space...An upgrade to me would have been a discount on our stay or a free dinner.
To top everything off... The room 0803 toilet in the master was broken when we went to use it. We had to use the guest bathroom the entire stay. When we reported the problem management "said" they fixed it. THEY DID NOT.

Room Tip: Do not stay at Seascape Resorts.

One of the best amenities was the complimentary beach chairs every day. What a great bonus! The bar/restaurant open until 2am was a great plus also.

Reviewed 7 March 2011

We stayed in March just before the "Season" started. Our unit was pet friendly perhaps that is why it was in such sad shape. A small double bed. Unfortunatly, the water was not working properly and seemed to be an on going problem, with the plunger in the bathroom. When the water was turned off unexpectedly as we were getting ready to depart, I called the front desk to be told, sorry, it looks like it will be off for several hours. They did offer us late check out. Someone might find that acceptable, I did not.

we stayed in one of the golf villas. it was one of the cleanest and one of the quietest places we have ever stayed. when you stay there you get a free round of golf for every day you are there plus free umbrella and 2 chairs for everyday you are there. our villa was in the very back of the property. it was very quiet. every morning my husband and son got up and played golf, and my daughter and i went to either one of the many pools, rented bikes, or caught one of the trams to the beach. we will definitely stay here when we go back again.

The receptionist was very nice, she told me where the room was and gave me coupons for restaurants. The villa was in good condition, but not very clean. It looked like it has not been dusted in a long time. I loved that it was so close to the water and they offered a free round of golf for each day that i stayed.
