We loved this place. Stayed in Unit 810. Newly renovated and the views from the balconies of the sunset and sunrise were spectacularly. I especially love the night time views of PCB and Thomas Drive area. Racquetball, tennis, shuffleboard...all kinds of stuff to do. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed again at The Watercrest the first week in August 2014 in the same unit booking with Maureen and again our vacation was wonderful. Our two granddaughters now think this is definitely our vacation spot every year. Our youngest granddaughter turned 6 while we were there and we decorated the patio with special lighting and it was beautiful. We...

NEVER rent unit 1504 at Water Crest!!!! !!!!!! Had to rate it 1 star because 0 star wasn't an option. Don’t be fooled by the pictures… EXTREMELY OLD, WORN OUT, UNSAFE AND NASTY!!!! We will NEVER use Royal American. Used them twice and both times we encountered pricing problems. Hidden fees surfaced when we got there to check in and...

We just returned from a week at WaterCrest, Unit 310. It is a GORGEOUS unit, all brand new, it was gutted in 2013 & is now FABULOUS. Very bright, open, very comfortable. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay at WaterCrest. The property itself was well kept, clean, pretty. There is a small concession by the...

This place is lovely. The booking process was easy. The property was well kept. The rooms are beautiful. Watercrest is an older property so there are a little stains on the carpet, but it's not that bad. This was our first time staying in a condo and it was a great first experience. The view was wonderful. We are ready...

One of the best condos we've stayed at on the Gulf. It's right on the Gulf, has some of the best amenities...I especially like the indoor racquetball court and the tennis court. Quiet part of the beach and close to all the marinas and the state park.

Patti was wonderful to deal with. Could be updated and had to clean a little when we arrived Other than that everything was very nice. View is unbeatable. Spent a lot of time on the balcony! The building is very quiet. We never heard our neighbors. Nice peaceful week. Would definitely stay again!

The Watercrest is an older property that is beautifully maintained. It is the cleanest condo property I've ever seen in the area. The grounds are way above average in terms of landscaping and flowers. The inside atrium sets the property off from others, and the pool and hot tub area is beautiful. They also have well-maintained shuffleboard and tennis courts,...
