“Great condo on the beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

My husband & I stayed there the first week in Feb. The location couldn't have been better. Right on a private beach with complimentary lounge chairs. The pool was well heated and the cleaning service and front desk staff were excellent. I thought the condo was well equipped and updated. Lovely towels and linens, fully equipped kitchen. Maybe some of the units were not updated yet, therefore the negative review from someone. We were on the first floor and I loved the patio right outside our room. The living room rattan furniture was a little outdated but that was the only negative. I would definitely stay there again next year if available.

We spent another week at The Native Sun this winter (March 15th-22nd, 2014). Everything in my previous review still stands. The weather was perfect. The beach, the pool, the hot tub and sauna were used by us daily. The room that we picked was not as convenient as the one we picked last year, so we have already done our homework for next year's rooms. Mike and Kathy were attentive to all our needs. There was one problem with our room upon our arrival. Apparently the previous tenant was a smoker and smoked in the room even though it is against the rules. The next day the room was thoroughly cleaned including carpet shampooing. This probably should have been attended to and discovered by the maid service. Anyhow, a good effort was made to address the problem. We expect to spend 2 weeks at the Native Sun in 2015.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the ocean get better sun.

Property is a 70's style 3 story Motel Unit sandwiched between High-Rise Condominiums.

Infrastructure is very dated but suprisingly everything works!!!

Their Hospitality cannot be surpassed by the front and maintenance staff . They are what keeps this place going.


However, if you are looking for more upscale, this is NOT the place to come!
Frayed towels, mismatched lids on cookware, beat up plastic utensils and old huge Bamboo 70's style Furniture is the norm.

Air Conditioning is ancient and blows either cold or not cold and blows randomly thru the return on the top of the wall near ceiling.

Our unit 306 was 1 B/R 2 bath unit half-way down the block, with a view of the ocean.

Bathrooms are old and had to get the "Moen" sink tap replaced as it fell off out of the sink..did not leak though/

The 1 King Size Bed was comfortable and one TV's in Living Room had been upgraded to Flat Screen.

No problem obtaining a DVD Player and a blender for "Smoothies" just ask at the front counter and it will be delivered.

Again the Front Office Staff, MIke, Chris, Cathy were all very pleasant to deal with.

They have a computer to print out your 'boarding passes' and a 'ol-style balance weight scale' to weigh your luggage before returning to the airport.(a nice touch!)

In summary, their Hospitality is GOLD CROWN, but the units are not up to standard,

I guess that's why it continually rates well as a Gold Crown Property!

P.S. This view of course is totally subjective in my part, but if you liked it please give me a "heads up" vote if you want, thanks!

Room Tip: Higher units closer to the beach are best. The Ocean View rooms,though nice, are shaded from noon on...

We stayed here Oct 5-12, 2013. Our unit was 201. We had a one bedroom, two bathroom Ocean Front view. The view was blocked somewhat from a big tree. The living room has a queen size pull out sofa bed. The bedroom had a full size pull out sofa bed and a king size bed. This unit could sleep 6 people. I just exchanged again through international interval but this time its room 308. I'm a little worried that my view might not be as pretty. I believe its a side view of the ocean. I wish when people right reviews they would mention the room number and how the view is. This resort is in major need of upgrades. Especially the bathrooms. We also still had tube TVs. The room next to us was unlocked and we looked inside. It was a one bedroom with one bathroom. It had a somewhat updated bathroom and flat screen TV. I was a little upset that our room didn't have a flat screen and the other one did. They were also painting the outside and doing repairs while we were there. I hope they continue doing repairs and upgrades. Hopefully when we go in September 2014, they will have flat screens in all rooms. I have to say my first impression when I went into my unit ...was a little disappointing by how old it looked, but as everyday went by it really wasn't that bad and I was sad that my vacation came to an end.

We used Interval Exchange to book this in off-season. This is an older four-story resort sandwiched between two newer hi-rises. We had a two bath unit which is larger than the std one bath and it was spacious. If you need granite counter tops and a large bathroom, this won't impress you. However it is clean, well equipped, very functional, and the staff is very helpful. A well run place. We liked the size of the unit, the full kitchen, the large balcony, and the view. They have a pool, a great beach, two outside grilles, tennis, and shuffleboard. We also really like this location and we didn't see any children, but might be the time of year. We had the beach to ourselves, more or less. A small shopping center is just down the road - very convenient. They were painting when we were there (off season), but it wasn't too disruptive. They also have two elevators and good parking. We would easily stay here again.

Room Tip: Two bath unit is larger and has a larger balcony for the upper floors.

This is actually a timeshare property that offers accommodations to outsiders when available.

We stayed here for a week in mid August and had a wonderful time. The pillows could have been a little more comfortable and the living room furniture was not all that comfortable either but overall the 1 bedroom unit was clean and had what we needed for the week.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils but I would recommend a rewash before using anything. It was a full sized kitchen with large refrigerator, microwave, 4 burner stove and a toaster. If you want a blender you have to request it but one was available so we brought one up to the room when we checked in.

The bedroom had a king-sized bed and a dresser and closet. It turned out to have more than enough space for our stuff. The bathroom was compact and old looking but everything worked and it was clean. The vanity had drawers to put things in so that made up for the lack of space.

The living room is outfitted with a full closet, sleeper sofa (we did not open it up), a coffee table, two cushioned chairs and a chest of drawers. It also had a small dining area for 4.

The balcony spanned the entire length of the unit and had a view of the ocean and the pool. We were on the second floor (203) and found this to be a great location. The walk to the beach was close by and chairs are available to drag down to the water side of the beach. Lots of rip currents when we were there so the surf was rough. But the ocean breeze was great.

There is still some construction going on at the condo complex just south of the property but it really wasn't too noisy in the morning. We were out and about most of the rest of the time taking in the museums and attractions in the area. A Publix is right down the street where we bought enough items for breakfasts and some lunches during the week and we really appreciated the full sized kitchen.

The staff is friendly and helpful and we had a great time at this property.
