5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

We found this place on the Internet. Decided to go with it because the aminities and the cost. We were not dissappointed when we arrived so much to do here you don't even have to leave!!! Loved the private beach and pools...our kids had a blast!!!! We plan on returning every summer. Don't know what anyone found to complain about because this place is great especially considering the low price!!!!

Dirty inside and out. Garbage as you walk down to the beach. Carpet in hallways coming up off the plywood making it a tripping hazard. NO cable as promised. Holes in the towels, linens old and scary looking.

First night-- Noise. Security called twice, finally at 12:30am settled down.
Second night -- GREAT!
Third night-- power outage at midnight, at 3:00am Fire alarm went off. No security. Stood outside 30 minutes no fire trucks, nothing. Give up and head back to bed. (found out someone was smoking in the lobby). At 5:45am Fire alarm goes off again, this time we called security--- false alarm but fire department is on its way.
Forth night-- Called security about noise three times, settled down about 1:30am. Great-need sleep after the night before--- Fire alarm goes off again @ 5:00am!!! Security has no idea why.
Talked to the folks at the office --- Oh, there is nothing we can do-- we only rent the units. (!!!!)

This is a beautiful resort. Not the first time we have been there. We will NOT be back.

Room Tip: Internet was not working either.

This was an amazing vacation for my family! I have two small children and we stayed in a one bedroom unit in Plantation Palms. We rented through Meyer Realty and the check in/out process was very fast! To check out we just called a number! The room was very clean when we arrived. We had only been in our room for about 15 minutes and someone from Meyers actually came to the room and asked us if everything was cleaned to our satisfaction! The complex was very clean, the pools were wonderful, and the property was well taken care of! It was also nice having a little cafe/shop on the property. Our living room furniture was somewhat uncomfortable, but we spent most of our time outdoors and on the balcony, so this didn't matter to us. My only real complaint the entire trip was the boardwalk to the beach needed to have the sand cleared away, but this was minor. I feel like we got a great vacation for a very reasonable price!

Rented an end unit with the ocean view with my wife and 11 year old daughter. Mico living was what we got. I have seen larger business hotel rooms in Japan. It says it sleeps 4, a nook in the corner for the master suite and a Sleeper sofa, was not expecting that sleeper sofa would bump up to the end of the mater bed... Room was in need of an update and the appliances were fire hazards. The toaster actually caught on fire.. We we lucky that we did not have a teenager with us as there was minimal privacy and living area. It would have been a complete disappointment if not for the view of the ocean. We stayed in the Plantation building on the 8th floor. The security people are really nice and very helpful when needed. Internet service is not in each room, only in main lobby on ground floor.

Room Tip: End units really are for 2 poeple only
