The condo was very nice every bedroom had its own bathroom which is nice when traveling with friends. The Balcony was on the beach side of the complex and we had a great view morning, noon & evening. The only negative was there was some construction going on during our stay

Very nice location, construction going on during my visit caused limited parking. This is a nice ground floor unit, but could use some extra attention from the owners. It has a nice comfy bed in master bdrm but the other bdrm could sure use some new beds. Microwave handle broken, closet doors off track, leaning in back of closet. Couch... More

Good location, nice pool, great ocean views, right on beach. Only issue I had was our condo #1003 although adequate. It needed updating and was very dirty. Carpet was dirty, mold in tub around hand support. Coffee maker didn't work. Stove was dirty. Silverware was dirty. Over all the stay was pleasant. Just wish condo had been cleaner. It's as... More

The views from our floor was amazing, not just of the ocean but of the amazing city too. Best part of Watercrest is its location, being on the eastern part of the city, you avoid the cheaper and more run down motels, that house the infamous wild party-goers, leaving an astonishingly quiet and family oriented area to enjoy your vacation....

This resort is under a $4 million dollar renovation. All amenities are closed until April 2016. While this resort is a stunning resort when fully functional, right now it's a hard hat work zone. Our rental company (third party, not Watercrest) did not advise us of the construction and rented to our family anyway. We were completely heart broken when... More

Old units that are barely cleaned from previous tennents. Old stove where 2 eyes didn't work and a microwave that randomly cooked things. Silverware and plates old and worn and missing half of the kitchen utensils. Bathrooms were cruise ship sized and moldy and sporadic water pressure with poor drainage.
