There were pros and cons for us....
Posted Aug 23, 2011
PROS: More room than standard hotel room; convenient kitchen and laundry.
Since these are individually-owned condos that are rented out through an agency rather than a time-share, there was no high pressure sales pitch.
CONS: Resort fees too high. We'd just come from a different resort condo, comparable price, with much nicer amenities and they didn't charge any resort fees at all.
Check-in was confusing. Check in address different from condo address given to us.
This is probably a small thing, but it was a pet peeve for us. You don't just check out when your time is up like in a regular place. They require you to call them the night before and "schedule an appointment with an inspector." This inspection turned out to be very quick and not really that big of a deal, but it rubbed us the wrong way to have to worry about making an appointment and schedule an exact time for the inspector to come by while we were packing up. Also felt like our mommy was coming to make sure we had made our bed. When we are on vacation, we don't want to be bothered to make appointments, adhere to a precise schedule, or anything else that feels like interference with our brief escape from the grind. They had our credit card # for any incidentals/damage had there been any (there wasn't) and I felt they could have left it at that.
Not a bad place, not an exceptional place. We would lean toward trying somewhere else next time but would possibly return if the price was right.
