I share the feelings of the other travelers who have reviewed the property. We stayed on the 25th floor so the stairs are not an option. Remember there are more elevators than the one closest to your unit. Saturday check in time is CRAZY!!! We arrived around 6:30 and the lines were still huge. It was about an hour wait for the elevator. There are three elevators to the left of the walk over bridge. Use those. The remainder of the week wasn't too bad at those elevators...maybe 5 minutes. The stairs are not air conditioned....and neither are the waiting areas for the elevators or the elevators...they get hot and muggy. Our room itself was great. #2509. It had a great view and you could still hear the waves.
The rental process for chairs/umbrellas could be updated. Why you have to wait every day is crazy. The line started as early as 7am for nice beach days and you can't rent until 8:30am. The water was full of seaweed on our trip. The two outdoor pools are very nice but there should be an age limit for the hot tubs. Each day they were full of kids. All in all the trip was O.K. I doubt I would ever go back to PCB....too many people for a relaxing family vacation.
