In this life results come from the choices we make and these people choose to not tell you the truth. When they say your room is on 5 th floor it really means 8 th floor. We have wifi means it's extra$$$. The beds were absolutely terrible! The shower rod fell they said they would send maintenance to come replace...

We were there when I believe its considered "high season" so my first issue is with the elevators, how the builder would believe 2 elevators would serve that many condos is crazy...I highly suggest requesting a lower floor so you can walk down. Secondly, the pools are small and the fact that the building it literally 5 feet from it...

The beautifully furnished condo was very clean and had everything we needed. We liked the location next to the county pier and open beach. There were even fireworks one night off of the pier that we watched from our balcony. I liked that the condo is not in an area with side-by-side highrises that make the beach crowded. The lower...

Great vacation! The beach was excellent, this was my wife's first trip to the Gulf Coast and it couldn't have been better. The condo was awesome!

“All of these balconies face the gulf and look down on the pool. The higher the room, the longer trip on the elevator...remember that. Make sure to specify that you don't want bunks if need be (see above).”
