My new wife and I stayed here about a month ago. My parents own a floating week here and were kind enough to let us use it for our honeymoon. Upon arrival the place looked decent enough. Pretty grounds and away from all the hub-bub of downtown. I quickly noticed the parking situation didn't look to good. Meaning there wasn't alot of it and it was quite hard to maneuver especially for larger vehicles. The people at the front office (shack) were not rude but not overly pleasnt either. We had unit 106, a 1 story condo on the end overlooking the marina and bar (another shack). Right off the bat we noticed a musty/moldy smell in our unit. We just figured we would get used to it. Upon closer inspection we saw many more flaws with the room. First of which was an index card taped to the wall above the thermostat. It stated : "Please do not set thermostat below 75 degrees to prevent the A/C units from freezing up." Now that's just wrong, lol. Almost all of the wallpaper was bubbled up or peeling as was whatever was on the ceiling. The rugs were torn in spots. The entertainment center looked ready to fall apart and the doors that covered the T/V were broken. Then there was the kitchen which was a disaster. Cracked tiles here as well. A HUGE crack running the entire depth of the counter. Broker sink sprayer. 2 heating elements on the stove appeared to be broken as well, tho we did not try to use it due to this fact. We did however try to use the dishwasher which was defineatly broken. The coffee pot was disgusting and the light didn't work in the fridge. On a better note the toaster looked brand new. Oh yea, did I mention the whole kitchen was infested with ants! There were 2 pools but we only used the one right outside our room. It was a little on the small side but other than that decent I guess. We would have liked to use the hot tub but unfortunately it was broken and had caution tape around it. Halfway through our stay we got a phone call from the office offering us $50 cash to take a survey. I said why not. A man that could have been Bill Clinton's brother accent and all took us to his "office". (A table near the pool) The survey took all of 5 minutes, but the office failed to mention the whole talking you into buying one of these shacks thing. To make a 2 hour story short, they wanted us to buy a week in one of these for $34,000. Plus an $800 a year maintenence fee. What exactly were they maintaining? A word to the wise, not a good idea to try and sell someone something unless your sure they like it. They should have been targeting people that were NOT staying there and showed them a demo unit that wasn't a run down ant colony. But that's just me. Needless to say we ended up purchasing a timeshare at the Windward Pointe Hyatt just down the street. Guess how much it was? ONLY $15,000. I wouldn't take back our stay because it was our honeymoon and all but I would never stay there again. If we had actually paid money for this stay I would have been livid.
