Nice "Hotel," But Lacking In Some Respects:
Posted Sep 17, 2013
The TV system was antiquated. We couldn't play a movie DVD at all in the bedrooms, and only accidentally was able to play one on the 20+ year old system in the family room. Due to some disabilities, I walk some distances with great effort. The walk (with armloads of beach stuff needed) from the building to the beach was over 3 blocks with 1/3 of it sand. If we ever come back to a nice condo with swimming pool, etc., we will need one on the beach side, and with more up-to-date TV equipment.
My most serious complaint is the lack of security with old fashioned common door keys. My older son came in one day and found a guy fooling with our cooking range. He said that a needed repair was being attempted on one of our burners. (He didn't fix it.) This could have been scheduled before our check in. There is NO reason for ANYONE to enter our room without our being present to let them in. After all, Sanibel Condos is NOT a hotel. Hotels have daily maid service, and Heaven knows, at $134 we paid for it. Also, upon arriving there was no soap, no dish detergent, and no toilet paper. We had to go 2 miles and back to a store and buy them. Then, on the second day your service people brought them in a plastic bag along with liner bags for the trash can in the pantry.
