“Not the best service”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

My husband and I rented a boat from Tierra Verde recently and have decided we probably won't use them again. We reserved a 19 foot boat but when we arrived at 9am to get the boat, they told us we had to take a 17 foot boat. The young girl working was completely unapologetic and was pretty rude when we asked what happened to the boat we reserved. We never got a straight answer out of her. We took the boat they offered us and it worked fine. Most of the staff was very nice, just not the girl at the counter. I wouldn't recommend this company, I've now gotten recommendations from others for boat rental places in that area that are more reliable.

“What a disappointment”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

After years of renting boats with Tierra Verde Boat Rental my family and I were extremely disappointed:
The boat was old and terribly maintained...it could barely be used for waterskiing. For about an hour the boat did not work and when we called using the VHF radio we did not get a response. We later found out it is out of service! VHF is not a luxury, it is a requirement. It was probably the worst boat we have ever rented anywhere. The water toys are in so-so shape as well.
The price for gas was a rip-off. The gas meter in the boat didn't even work, so they charged me whatever they wanted.
And most of all, the lady who attended us was rude, sarcastic and unhelpful.
My overall experience was very bad and I will never rent again form them. I recommend to go elsewhere.

“This place over charges for gas and is a ripoff.”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

This place over charges for gas and is a RIPOFF! We go to the same place every time and it's normally $30, but this time it was $66!!!! This isn't the first time this has happened, but I confronted Bill and he got very defensive, and had no explanation. After reading many other reviews, it looks like this is a common occurrence, and you should think twice before you join this club.
