The condo we were in was very much in need of a little TLC. Getting into the room through the front door was difficult. It took us several tries to get the door lock to work...every time we returned to the condo. The kitchen was ant infested. We dealt with this by keeping everything in the fridge. The sitting area smelled musty. The bedrooms were fine...the beds and pillows were not very comfortable, but they were clean. The bathroom downstairs was clean except for some mildew.
The lanai is screened in and looked out over the golf-course. The screen doors would not lock, so we were unable to leave the doors open for cross-ventilation. The two bedrooms do have air-conditioning, which was wonderful!! However, the additional sleeping area with the two single beds could not be cooled, and without any air-flow, it was a miserable sleeping area. Considering the fact that the extra cost charged for cleaning...which was almost the cost of another night in the condo, we would have expected less dust, mildew, and especially no ants.
The walls are very thin with little sound proofing. There was a party next to us that we might as well have been sitting in with the folk at the party. The phones did not work...it was a blessing cell phones work well at Turtle Bay. Security did manage to get the party quiet...after about an hour.
The grounds are well kept, and the location is excellent for getting out to explore the area. There are many food trucks nearby, and groceries are easy to get.
Without the ants, the condo would certainly have gotten three stars. With a bit of upgrading...and no ants, it would be a 4-5 star place because of the location.
