Recent guest reviews

Great place to relax and have fun.. clean and very nice

Bill, the maintenance/handyman was extremely friendly, welcoming and cordial. We enjoyed every random meeting with him. The front desk staff seemed very disinterested most of the time. We didn’t book through RCI, our primary resort is in Siesta Key. This resort seemed under par for the RCI standard we have gotten accustomed to over the last 34+ years.

Positives- beautiful views from all suites, the pull out couch bed is actually very comfortable, the heated pool and hot tub, location is great for good restaurants, close parking, clean, and nice amenities. Negatives- The continental breakfast is mainly bagels, cereal, and hard boiled eggs. Wish they had more hot breakfast options. We had a room by the elevator and light from outside and noise from the elevator made the night pretty restless. Would definetly stay here again! It was very enjoyable.

This hotel needs a service elevator. The staff was friendly, but sometimes the elevator was full of cleaning carts. I understand they have work to do.But having to wait is a bummer.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon. Great, clean, wonderful place ! On Saturday, it was like they were too busy to replace the towels and check on things ( like soap). I even spoke to the maid, asked for more coffee, towels, etc, and she agreed. OK, so we were OK until Saturday night I had to go get more towels. Simple mistake, no big deal. But the same thing for Sunday and Monday ! And no one vacuumed the whole time, I was using the same shampoo and soap bar from Friday night; come on, for the money, I expect something to be taken care of, like coffee maybe ?

The room was spacious and very clean. The room had high class toiletries along with items in the kitchen for cooking and cleaning up after meals. The only thing that my husband and I didn't like was the bed being in the room away from hearing the ocean waves otherwise it was great!

staff very helpful, room very clean and comfortable.

The lobby and downstairs opens spaces had a moldy/musty smell.

Nice stay. Staff was great. No good places to eat close by. Had to travel down the strip for a decent place to eat.

We totally enjoyed our visit since it has been probably 20 years since our last. Did miss the restaurant/bar that the Barclay used to have, however the accommodations and staff were good. Thanks, we'll be back.

It was okay. The view was nice. The refrigerator didn't get cold. The air conditioner was not working when we checked in but was fixed quickly. The pool room inside was humid.

We loved it! Great place for a family. Spacias, clean and full kitchen.

It was nice to have kitchen and utensil. Nice view and comfortable to relax.

Never had any problems when we stayed at Barclay Towers. We stayed here every time that we came down to Va. Beach, told friends about Barclay and had 2 friends come and stay here also.

The view was wonderful! The weather was a bit humid- could not be helped. The clouds were a bit cloudy and we missed the eclipse-also could not be helped, but the relaxation was wonderful! The staff while we were there, (two nights), were not very personable at all. We had to be the first to engage them with a Good morning or how are you today?. Chair in the room was very uncomfortable and the bed was hard. Location was fabulous!

not clean, breakfast not good, put me in a room near to the elevator, very noicy

Great place to stay! My wife and I spent one night and day and had a fabulous time. Room was clean,quiet,and comfortable. Will return.

1st time here. Had a great time, and view was great. Spent most of the time on the beach, had a blast. Would come back to same hotel but they don't have any rooms available.

One of the nicest places we have stayed good location, clean and pleasant staff. Only down side...no outdoor pool.

I had a good stay at the hotel. I can say that all of my expectation were met. One very minor flaw, The tile floor leading from the bedroom to the kitchen needed mopping. Front desk staff were courteous and professional. I was in town for the sporting tournament. The additional parking located across the street is really convenient. I will stay here again.
