We were very impressed with the condo overall. The decor was beautiful but some things need to be fixed. 3 bedroom condo that sleeps 10 and not enough towels. The showers/sinks don't drain properly. You could tell there was mold and had a musty smell. The tv in the living room

We loved this Unit #208. Its on the east corner. Great sunrise view and ocean views from the 8th floor. The unit is totally updated and very nicely furnished. The master is large with a sliding door to the deck. The deck is very spacious with large table seats 6 and still enough

Hello, Thank you for providing your feedback. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time. Sterling Resorts does not manage unit 102, so we recommend letting the owner or rental company that you rented from know about the maintenance and housewares issues you experienced so that they can be corrected. Again, thank you for rating us four stars. We hope to see you back really soon! Warm Regards, Kayla Pickett General Manager Sterling Resorts at Watercrest

We have stayed at the watercrest several times and this will probably be our last. The views are great and the grounds of the property are nice and well maintained. However the unit we are is is very dated. Furniture is old and the stove eyes do not sit flat. When we arrived the

Hello, I am very sorry to hear that you had a less than satisfactory time with us resulting in you not returning to our property. I had spoken with you in the office and I did not realize in our conversation that you were unhappy; just that you were reporting things to us that needed our attention. I apologize for misreading the communication and for not providing an adequate response to your troubles. The only things mentioned to me were about the odor in the sink and also the exhaust fan. Had it been reported that you had housekeeping issues or other concerns, I could have provided a response either with housekeeping returning to the unit or moving units if that would have made you more comfortable. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience you experienced. I hope that in the future you will allow us to place you in a unit that better suits the needs of you and your family. I will be sure to mention the items listed to the unit owner. Also, I do apologize for the office being closed a bit early one day - we had an internet outage and our front desk agent went to another property to finish her daily duties. We do have 24/7 staff available and I am on call for the properties at all times and am easily accessible from the number that security provided to you. The parking and pool rules are enforced by the Home Owner's Association at Watercrest. Unfortunately, we do not control the property rules or the costs associated with them. Thank you, Kayla Pickett General Manager Sterling Resorts at Watercrest

We stayed in 408, we had perfect views of the ocean from the kitchen, living room , dining room and master bedroom. Shower was great in the master bedroom. The other bathroom was a decent size also. There were plenty of towels, the kitchen was well stocked with what we needed

Hello, Watercrest 408 is not managed by Sterling Resorts. You would need to go back to the owner or rental company you rented from in order to receive information regarding this unit. Regardless the rental outlet, we are so glad that you enjoyed your time overall here at Watercrest and we hope that you return very soon. If you need any assistance from our Sterling Resorts team, please let us know. Warm Regards, Kayla Pickett General Manager Sterling Resorts at Watercrest

Chelsey, Wristbands are required for guests age 12 and over. Anyone under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult that is wearing a wristband. The company or owner you rented from would be able to give you the wristbands when you check-in. Thank you, Kayla Pickett General Manager Sterling Resorts at Watercrest

Is there a tiki bar out by the pool?
Sue, There is a Tiki Bar by the pool which sells alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, meals such as chicken salad sandwiches, burgers, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and bbq. They also sell snacks like chips and ice cream. Please note that the snackbar is seasonal, so if you are planning a trip during our fall our winter months, this will not be available to you.

Is smoking aloud outside rooms on the balconies?
Smoking policies are truly up to every owner or rental company. For Sterling Resorts guests,smoking is prohibited inside the units but smoking on the balcony is okay so long as the balcony door remains shut as to keep the smoke outside of the unit. Always check with the owner or rental company that you rented from.

All major construction of the property has been completed. The front entrance and porte-cochere are still being worked on- tile is being put down as we speak. The Owner's Association expects that everything will be completed by Memorial Day. It is great to check with the owner or rental company you rented from to be sure that construction will not effect your stay.
