Our family just returned from Pine Vista after a week long stay (treetops 7&8). The first thing we noticed when we walked into our units was the overwhelming smell of must. We thought it might possibly be that the unit had been closed up for awhile and would dissipate after a few hours. No such luck... Living room chesterfields, mattresses wreaked. The linen on one of the beds appeared not to have been changed and a bedspread in one of the other rooms had blood on it. An over site possibly but not a good one. We voiced our concerns and the housekeeper returned with fresh linens.
The small area for swimming was weedy and had feces floating in it, not sure if it was animal or human.
It is obvious that the small details are not being looked after,from strings of lights on the gazebo hanging haphazardly to nail pops on outdoor verandas being left to catch small toes on. Major complaint is the rating system, in our estimation based on other 4 star accommodations we have stayed at, this one is totally inaccurate.
