This is the second time we have stayed at Escapes. The pool is great, and love the convenience to the beach, esp the boardwalk to it.
We are timeshare owners and were disappointed in the maintenance of the unit, broken handle on microwave, light out over stove, front burner doesn't heat properly, slow draining sink in bathroom, and shower door will not close. Most of these problems should have been reported by housekeeping, and taken care of prior to our arrival. We are waiting for maintenance to come to complete the repairs.
Although the sofa is comfortable, it's seen better days as well as the pillows on the uncomfortable bed.I would have also liked carpeting in the living area. I don't like to wall on bare, cold ceramic floors. At least put an area rug around the sofa.
Additional charges were posted for toilet paper, paper towels, plastic bags
Not sure if I would recommend to friends.
