First off let me say that if you are expecting a hotel type resort this is not it. It is a condo development some owner occupied, some vacation rentals. You need a car to get anywhere in this development. If you are a golfer it is an ideal location as it backs up to a golf course and is located adjacent to barefoot landing and restuarant row... The travel service should make that clear when booking that this is more of a vacation rental not hotel or condotel resort. The photos on book it are very misleading , at least in my opinion. Based on the phots I saw on several booking sites. Most of the photos shown are of the towers, a section of this development. If you decide to stay here that's where you want to make sure you stay, those units are more upscale and better kept. There is a grill and snack bar at the towers as well as tenis courts and a gym..the other units don't have these, nor are the other units on the water, only the towers. The huge pool you see in the travel photos are of the towers pool. The other pools are small and very average, with only bathrooms and a soda vending machine.
Our unit was supposed to be a 2 bedroom unit with a king in the master bedroom and twin beds in the second. The rental office is only open until 5pm and is at a different location, if you arrive after 5 you get your keys out of a lock box there and come back in the morning to complete your check in...We arrived late, got our keys at the lock box and went and found our unit. The first thing we noticed was the kitchen sink was filthy, with foul smelling greasy black residue all over it. The garbage compacter was broken and stuffed full of broken glass bottles, and the garbage had not been emptied. The tv remotes both in the bedrooms and living rooms had no batteries in them. The king bed was actually 2 twin mattresses pushed together on a king bed frame that if you rolled into the middle of the bed separated a little.. The pillows were the smallest and flatest pillow I had ever seen, and only a few of them had pillow covers, the remaining ones were stained and old. In the morning when we told the rental office they did send someone over hours later to clean out sink, repair trash compacter and bring 2 clean new pillows and cases. There was 1 extra blanket for 3 beds if you got cold. We had several of our own blankets and pillows that we used. We paid $960 for 5 nights and it was a huge diappointment. Fortunately we spent very little time in the unit, so it worked out for us. if you rent here bring plenty of your own towels and toiletries. Also, when you check out you are responsible to make sure the kitchen is clean, dishes are all washed and put away and any garbage is taken to the dumpster. When you book you are told it includes departure day maid services, but you are expected to most of cleaning the unit yourself. Alost forgot the 2 foot tall statue of a sailor whose head was broken off and laying next to it when we arrived..this was unit 1023 in the ironwood section
