This review is for Saida Tower 4, Room 301. This room is a privately owned condo that the owner maintains and rents through Homeaway. Our family (husband, wife, 2 kids ages 2 and 5) rented this over the memorial day weekend. While we had some small issues with the room itself, the location makes this worth recommending.
The first thing to note about Saida 4 (and I believe all the other Saida towers would be the same) is that the location is excellent. Saida Towers are located right as you cross over from the mainland. The Saida facilities include several tennis courts and private pools. There is a private walkway right to the beach. The beach is cleaned daily in the morning, and was not overly crowded. Our goal is generally to spend as much time on the beach as possible, and Saida was able to deliver.
Saida is also within walking distance of several good restaurantes. I would highly recommend Gabriella's Grill and Cap'n Roy's. Both were good and had the relaxed atmosphere that I like from beach towns.
The room itself is OK. They are not well suited for small children (chairs with weels, glass tables) but this is something we have encountered before and I do not hold this as a downside. Both bedrooms (master and guest with 2 twin beds) have carpet. I usually don't trust carpet at a beach rental. There were also some minor items that should be repaired, such as a dresser with a corner missing and the guest bathroom towel rack was broken.
The kitchen was adequete, but some of the pans were difficult to cook with (I couldn't make pancakes as an example) but we ate the majority of our meals in the room and were able to easily get by any shortcomings.
Overall, a great location makes this worth visiting. If your plan is to spend as much time at the beach or at the pool as possible, this place can deliver. If you plan to spend large amounts of time in the room, there are probably cheaper and better alternatives
