“Great Beach, problems with unit”
Reviewed 15 June 2007

Just returned from St. Simons. While the condo (2 bdrm/2bth) would have been ideal for our family of 4, 2 adults/2 children, there were a few problems with our older unit. Arrived and tile floor was gritty. Called housekeeping and they mopped it up but walking on it even a little bit turned our feet black. No rugs in any part of the condo which may have helped. Mstr bath was large but shower was covered in mildew and the shower was barely a drizzle. 2nd shower spray was stinging. Both bathrooms need recaulking. And, the power failed in just our unit one afternoon but the maintenance had it fixed by the time we returned.

On the plus side the beach was great. Nice and wide in the AM and gone in the PM. Recommend the dolphin tour with Captain John, lots of fun for kids and adults. Turtle tour was interesting but didn't see any turtles the nite we went (make reservations early) Water park had wave pool closed for renovations! Other rides were fun, park was small overall but great for spending a few hours as it wasn't very crowded.

Can't say much for the restaurants, EVERYTHING IS FRIED! Restaurants are empty until about 6:30 which makes it nice if you have children. Shopping is sparse, 2 grocery stores, one which had a lot of empty shelves both times I went there. Fitness center at Beach Club is average.

Stayed June 2007

Ok,
Honeymoon, garden tub, your own fully furnished kitchen, awsome couch, great pool, peace and quiet and a boiling hot tub. Can I say any more?
Pro's
-Really great for OLDER couples..(Im 27)
-Very relaxing
-the condo is worth the money
-just as pretty as all the pictures
-more room than we needed
-great for families
-fitness center, dvd, vcr, cable, full kitchen, nice towels
Con's
-Bed was a little hard ( got use to it)
-its a condo so you clean up
-beach is more to be desired ( its Georgia not Florida, sand is hard)
-it's quiet ( if thats a bad thing)
-no internet in the condo, but in the bussiness center downstairs

So,
If your a young person that wants clubs, pubs and night life go somewhere else. If you could'nt care less about that, this will be great. This is NOT a hotel, So its literally like living at St. Simons island in your own condo. I had a great time, tried the sea kayaking and it did not dissapoint, next Im doing a half day trip. Try it out....

  • Liked — the condo itself, very nice
  • Disliked — the hard sand
  • Tips/Secrets — buy groceries save your money on food
