vary spacious (that i liked) the property was not cleaned well ( we found "stuff" from previous client, one sock in dryer, a toy necklace on one of bump beads) the refrigerator ice maker did not work, washer and dryer did not work (contacted them and they say it would be next day before they can come and fix it) we were leaving the place "next day" so that dint help. the entrance key lock did not work so our door was unlock for 4 hrs before we knew it was not working.... contacted them and they did come and fix it within 30 min... the worst part was the elevator waiting time 10-15 min before you can get one and once we did you had to go like sardines "packed" full of people without face mask... terrible. (had to take stairs), the smell of "recreational" smoking was everywhere, elevator, walkways, even in our balcony you could smell it (we have children) we were on floor 11... i provably will not stay there ever.

Very clean, easy check in, and overall had a great experience.

The property was unique in that it was like being in a home and not a hotel room. Check in an out was a breeze. There is a kitchen (inclusive of microwave, stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator) with island seating, sofa, and comfy chairs. Although didn't use much for cooking, it was pleasant to know it was available. Had a somewhat non-issue to me, but they still sent up housekeeping swiftly to address. I only wish they lowered the cleaning fees or gave option to have it refunded based on cleanliness of the rooms.

I like the city view from the privite balcony. The only thing i'd change, if i had to change anything, would be. 24/7 resort staff as well as serurty. But over all GREAT RESORT, GREAT CITY!!!

Nice property. The rooms are excellent but the elevators are the only problem, long wait times and sometimes crowded.

The Elevators need updated they are really really slow other than that everything else was great

The lake looked good but didn't light it up over i love it

We enjoyed Everything and the . Everyone was so friendly. Great view from our condos.

Nice condo, close to the beach and other activities. Beautiful view from top floor but very hard to get an elevator. To many people trying to use them at the same time, especially every morning at check out time.

The condo was very clean and spacious loved the restaurant with all you eat crab legs I would definitely stay here again the only bad thing was the elevators very long wait for the elevators but great experience overall

Was clean, spacious, accommodating, everything I expected. Only negative was the elevators get backed up when it’s busy. Definitely will be back

It was a good stay, had a few complaints like the light was blown on our balcony. Told the people at the front desk the first day and it was never seen to.

Wifi is awful, alot of money and no AC in elevator

It's an ok place to stay, everything was nice except the furniture was a little outdated and the doors to the room needed to be repainted. Also the bathtub was very, very small.....
