“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

our family stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the top floor for a week and have no complaints at all ! it's quiet, beds are big and comfy, and the apartment itself was large enough for the 3 of us. having a pool and hot tub in the complex is a bonus if you want to swim, but not go to the beach. nice to have self controlling air conditioning in the unit as well. good to have your own kitchen as we cooked our own meals to save money instead of always eating out, which can get boring and expensive. having a unit that faces away from the busy road is a bonus if you have a family and you want quiet at night. we would stay here again, and actually plan to do so.

We were very excited to arrive at Playa Del Sol which looked beautiful from the pictures we had viewed on line. The exterior of the building was very nice as depicted in the photos, however, the unit we rented was a far cry from the advertised units! Unit 338 was filthy and smelled! The carpets were VERY stained. The linens were stained and dirty. I have included a picture of the face cloth which I was to use, it was sickenening. There was no functioning shower curtain or bath mat. The linens and hair dryer were covered in dark hairs. When I pulled out a cutting board it was sticky and covered in grease. There was no light bulb in the bedroom lamp which was the only light source for that room. The toilet paper holder was broken. The smoke detector was not hooked up. In response to the complaints the Manager admitted that the suites were rented so continuously that cleaning them thoroughly was not posssible. When we tried to move to another Hotel the Playa Del Sol Manager together with the booking company, Okanagan Vacation Home Rentals, tried to discount our concerns and refused to refund our money if we left. This experience ruined two and a half days of our week long vacation which is devastating! I never want another family to go through the same ordeal we did.

We stayed in a loft, two bedroom, top condominium, at a cost of $1,600 Canadian for four nights, so assumed that the unit would be in great shape. But we soon discovered garbage under the pull-out sofa bed; what appeared to be spots of blood on the upstairs bathroom wall and on the duvet for the downstairs bed; a stained (brown) bathroom towel; and tar on the kitchen floor. After being told about free local calls, we also realized that the downstairs and upstairs phones did not work, and that there was no telephone directory in the unit, to find addresses or numbers of restaurants, local venues, etc. When we informed the office, the only action taken was to provide a spare telephone directory, and to fix the upstairs phone (the main floor phone remained broken, and there was no housekeeping service provided, although we had to comply with strict rules about cleaning the unit upon departure to avoid any fee). For the amount paid, I think we will look elsewhere for our next visit to Kelowna, such as the Manteo Resort, which was across the road and located on the lakeshore.

The room and view were fantastic and I loved the location. One of the best restraurants was down stairs and the Eldorado Bar and Grill across the street. 2 public beaches just steps away. Had a nice coffee shop down stairs also and they opened at 6:30 which was neat. The staff could not have been more helpful and Graham and Amanda were very helpful in showing us around. I have stayed over in Kelowna many times but have never had this luxury before. Very safe and well maintained. I rate it a 5 star. Dean, Terry, Jason and Dallas loved it.

Room Tip: Talk to Graham and be nice. He's a great guy and knows his stuff.

We had a great unit belonging to a private owner and it was fantastic. The problem is with the building itself. Access moving in and out is extremely inconvienient so if you travel just bring what you need excess is difficult to move in and out. The main entrance only services part of the building???? I would consider this an adult building however our family had fun. The park is close buy and Kelowna H2O center is near by as well.
