“2204 Again was Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

I just returned from a week at Twin Palms in my usual unit, 2204. This unit is a 2BR/2BH penthouse (22nd floor) that is rented from Joni's Beach Rentals. The unit is very spacious (1147 sq. ft.) with the balcony off the living room and master bedroom overlooking the gulf. My favorite parts of Twin Palms is the location, the covered parking under the building, and the overall quietness of the property. The pool is of decent size and there is a dune walk-over from the pool to the beach. Add to that the location being close to shopping, resturaunts, and activities makes Twin Palms an ideal location for relaxation.

We go to PCB every 2 years. This was our first stay at Twin Palms. The covered parking beach-side was nice. We stayed in 1503 (a 1 bedroom) and leased through Joni's Beach rentals. Having to do the security lock for parking, elevator, pool, beach access was a bother but understandable. Traffic on Front Beach road is so much improved from years ago. There is a turn lane to the resort when coming from the west and simply right turn when coming from the east. Wal-Mart is .4 miles away for groceries and vacation supplies. It is also .4 miles to Pineapple Willys.

The pool was average. They added new furniture our last day there. Two gas grills were used by many guests. Contrary to past reviews there are baggage carts.

The curved balcony provided a great view.

I just returned from another great week at Twin Palms. I was in my usual unit, 2204 rented through Joni's Beach rentals. 2204 is a 2 bedroom/2 bath penthouse with incredible views both to the East and West. I enjoy the parking garage under the building with gated access. The location of Twin Palms is ideal....close enough to everything yet not in the middle of too much congestion. The building and the walkways were being painted during my stay which further adds to the appeal of the building itself. Everything was clean and inviting, as usual. Location, views, and the lack of people running over each other are some of the reasons I return trip after trip.

I just returned from another great stay at Twin Palms. I have been staying in #2204 for 3 years. This unit is rented through Joni's Beach Rentals. 2204 is a 2 bedroom/2 bath penthouse. Every time I stay in this unit it seems to get better. There were 3 new TVs this trip. Twin Palms has all the amenties a person could ask for....except maybe a Tiki bar. Pool, sauna, steam room, and a great stretch of beach. Add under the building parking to my favorite things about Twin Palms. I have found that Twin Palms is outstanding if you are looking for a more "quiet" environment. Plus the location is very convenient to Wal-Mart, dining, and a very short drive to Pier Park. If you are looking for a beautiful unit without a lot of noise, this is the place.

We rented condo #803 and the accommodations were fantastic. 2 spas, one large lap pool, sauna, steam shower and covered parking. Beach access was perfect and convenient. There were plenty of stores and restaurants within walking distance. Pier park is a fun shopping/restaurant area and it was 10 minutes from our condo. PCB is a must see for any beach lover! We are native Floridians and this beach is #1, in our opinion.

Overall the complex was acceptable. It is directly on the beach and the pool was also right on the beach. It was easy to keep up with the family at separate locations. However, we were charged $2.00 for pool armbands that was nothing more than a plastic bracelet that NO ONE ever checked for. There is a "locked" gate with keyless entry for guests to keep people from wandering up to the pool YOU paid for but the gate was hardly ever locked and again...no one checked for armbands so don't waste your money on those. The pool was always cloudy and needed additional chemicals for my liking. Public pools are nasty places so the clearer your pool looks, the cleaner it actually is. Our unit (1402) had shoe prints on the wall next to the master bedroom and looked like someone had smacked a bug. The floors were so dirty we had black feet within minutes and had to go buy Pinesol and mop them ourselves. The pictures online looked great but does not show the details. There were so many random dishes in the cabinets and nowhere to put your food items. Also, many of the dishes were not clean. Some had burnt on food (cookie sheet) and some had melted cheese (skillet). I always wash what i use beforehand for good measure but that was outrageous and obvious to whomever put them up. The unit sleeps 4 comfortably but the sofa bed was unusable. The mattress was dirty and so old, it had NO support whatsoever. One son slept on the sofa as a sofa and the other son had to curl up on the loveseat. They are both 6 feet tall! There is a security guard at night but all we ever saw him do was sit on a table in the corner of the parking deck on the ground level. The elevators always stunk and did not have any type of ventilation. I hope no one ever gets stuck in one of them. The "fittness center" and steam room also had a terrible odor that made it unusable. Our balcony was nasty! Not sandy but filthy! Your paperwork says to contact the office if you find problems but these just seemed to expose themselves a little at a time and not so obvious until you really start adding them up over the course of your stay. As a vacation property owner in Orlando, I don't recommend spending your hard earned money on this unit until they do some ceiling to floor cleaning. I'm sure there are nicer units in the complex.
