Victor was a man who gave me a pretty bag with a nautical theme! The hotel was clean and the staff were nice. I liked the soap dispensers! I loved the balcony view. The hot tub, pool, and sauna were very nice! I would come again!

We stayed in room 601. When getting off elevator hallway smelled like stale cigarette smoke. The room had an even stronger smell of stale smoke even though a no smoking room. Black mold found in the bathroom shower faucet handles. On the positive note new balconies are awesome. As owners at Ocean Key, we were very surprised to see the...

Thank you for your candid feedback and I absolutely agree with you that you should not have experienced the concerns in the bathroom. That specific area is part of our housekeeping and maintenance checklist, and it is very disappointing that it was missed by both departments, including the inspector. As a vacation ownership member with us, I’m sure you know...

We had a beach front room with two balconies one from the bedroom and one from the living room. The first room we were put in was the last room they had. We arrived at 430pm and the room looked as if it had not been cleaned in a month. I am so grateful that I brought my Clorox wipes,...

I apologize that your received inaccurate information regarding the size of the bed and pullout sofa sleeper and that we did not meet your expectations, your experience did not meet our expectations either. Thank you for the feedback as it helps us improve.

Clean units, pool, lobby. Washer dryers work fine but need updating. There is a bar/restaurant onsite end of march to ?. Foods good. Lots of local restaurants that are good too. This is a public resort but it it also a time share. If that's what your looking for keep me in mind.

I apologize that you experienced these concerns during your stay - it is truly not a normal occurrence, even with the change in weather at the oceanfront (warm to cold). Although the resort was undergoing renovations during your stay, your service should not have been impacted. Fortunately, our contractor was able to address your concerns immediately. Michele C.
