No 'warm and fuzzy' here

Posted Apr 18, 2018
Pros: Nice layout - great location - clean. I can see why it is rated as highly as it is.
Cons: Rooms are a bit dark - better check in process - perhaps fewer signs telling you what not to do - EVERYWHERE. Better beds and bedding. Adjust the AC.
Location: Across the street from a very quiet beach - just lovely! Not a ton of restaurants near by.
I arrived at Barefoot Beach and tried to check in a bit early (it was about 1:30). I was told the room was not ready and I should come back in a few hours. (no call was made to the cleaning staff to get a status). I needed to find wifi and the desk staff led me on a bit of a wild goose chase. I eventually drove to a McDonald's to get a signal - and there was a note from Expedia asking about the check in process - you can imagine my response. Eventually I got into suite F207. It looked lovely - though smelled strongly of bleach and it was quite warm. As it turns out the bleach was simply masking a really funky musty smell that surfaced about an hour in and stayed - and the thermostat would not allow you to lower the heat below 70 (though it felt much warmer.) There is no balcony or outdoor sitting area - and all the shades have to be kept down for any kind of privacy (just because of layout) so it's kind of dark in there, Everywhere you look you'll find signs with orders of what not to do. The bed was OK - there's an odd rubber mattress protector and only a sheet and thin quilt with a few cheap pillows. So while it was beautiful - it really didn't have a comfy welcoming vibe at all. Then I get a note from the manager about my Expedia check-in rating - telling me to 'drop by the office' if I wanted to discuss it. A great service experience would have been for them to walk across the parking lot to see me. Then this might not have been such a negative review.

Loved the resort!

Posted Apr 2, 2018
Pros: Location Condo was amazing -- clean, new, roomy
Cons: Pool could be larger if anything
Location: Wonderful beach Mini golf with live alligators next door
Just spent a wonderful spring break at this resort. Our unit was a two-bedroom end unit overlooking the causeway. The unit must have been newly renovated or at least looked like it. Very nicely decorated, clean and roomy. We had a clogged garbage disposal upon arrival that was promptly fixed by the staff. As promised, rental included bath towels and beach chairs, umbrella and even some pool noodles. Beach is in walking distance just across the street. Beach is not as "pretty" as Clearwater Beach, but so much less crowded -- wonderful for our family with younger kids. Pool was fun -- we used it later in the day as during the day pool was quite busy, especially with older folks standing in pool drinking -- didn't bother us as we came for the beach. Will for sure stay here again if in area.

Family gets together

Posted Jan 16, 2018
Staff helped us get ground floor rooms as we have a cousin in a wheelchair. He was able to make it around well and be with us as we moved between rooms. Don't get down here often so we appreciate it. Good seating in the rooms. Nice kitchen. Windy but enjoyed the beach. We would come back.

This place is great!

Posted Jan 13, 2018
Pros: That it was not a hotel.
Cons: They were doing some upgrades on infrastructure. I guess whatever they were doing is what needed to be improved. I thought it was perfect.
Location: Beach, dining, coffee, shopping, and all of St Pete, Clearwater and Tampa.
This is not a hotel, you are renting a condominium. Ours was 206E and it was wonderful. Everything you would want at home, across the street from the beach. Clean, well maintained, plenty of parking and it was very quiet.
