Runaway Beach Club
Reviewed 11 August 2012

My family was originally booked and paid up for Vacation Villas but when we got into Orlando (drove up from ft. laud) we pulled into Runaway Beach Club to ask for directions to Vacation Villas. Deneice, the most pleasant front desk staff at Runaway, directed us to Vacation Villas,,,,but when we got their the office was in closed, in darkness and had a sign up that said they would not reopen until Monday morning,,,,and it was Saturday!!!!! So we were so impressed with what we saw when we stopped for directions at Runaway that we scooted right back there to find out if they had available suites and for how much???? To our surprise....there was a 3-bedrm villa with a loft available for 2 nights and the price was so reasonable. Deneice hooked us up and when we got to our villa we were so happy to see how nice it was,,,ans the property itself!!!! We ended up forfeiting our money at the "other place" and paying for an additional night at Runaway Beach Club. Our stay was awesome,,,the kids loved the pool and the loft most of all with the foose ball table!!!!! Deniece you rescued our family vacation from a complete disaster! The villa was nicely maintained, clean, well outfitted for a family and all your needs with kids especially. We are already making plans to return next year for summer vacation and CAN'T WAIT!!!! Thanks Deniece from Pinder & Treco families!!!!!!! See yall next year!

Looks are deceiving-was happily surprised at first by spacious rooms, but cleanliness was questionable. Also had problems with things not working such as fan, hair dryer, clothes dryer. Shampoo, coffee not provided. Although 4 guests were registered there were only two sets of towels and no housekeeping. Properties seem poorly maintained: knob fell off closet door when it was opened. Washing machine was unbelievably noisy. Beds were not comfortable. Pool was open but kid's pool closed, outside bar/snack area never opened. It is confusing because you check-in at another facility half a mile away and then have to check-in at Ditka property to get gate/pool key. Would not recommend.

On June 22nd 2012 our Trip Advisor reviews instantly grew by four hundred guest comments due to a merging of our positive reviews with those of the previous onsite management company. Unfortunately, Trip Advisor will not permit more than one reviews account for the same location, so they merged all previous reviews, good and bad, into one account. We have received many calls from future guests that are very concerned about the negative comments that have appeared on Runaway Beach Club’s Trip Advisor listing since the June 22nd merging of reviews.

It may be helpful to explain what has occurred at Runaway Beach Club this year. Charlestowne Hotels became the new onsite management company on March 16, 2012 after the previous management company was removed from the resort. The previous company relocated to an offsite location and continued renting some units to customers. Unfortunately, when a company is no longer operating the services of the resort it is not able to fulfill all the promises and services as advertised. This has created confusion not only for their guests but also for our future guests who read the negative comments about the other company on Trip Advisor. Perhaps most distressing of all are the guests of the other company who have had bad experiences. We sympathize with those guests and hope that when they return, that they will stay at Runaway Beach Club through Charlestowne.
Please feel free to contact me directly should you have any questions.

If you want a great room with all the amenities of a condo at a great price then Runaway beach club is for you. The rooms are a good size and cozy enough to make you feel at home. The staff is friendly and accommodating I apreciate to Maria Teresa Carney, Art and Nickzander that take care of us with our reservation. Carolina Farme

I would like to congratulate the staff at this resort. Everyone was very nice and willing to help to accomodate us in any way. We stayed in the 3 bedroom and it was great. Very spacious. Has all the amenities as if you were in your own home! Love it, love it, love it! I encourage anyone who is looking for a clean, safe, friendly, and well kept resort to give this place a definite try. You really do get your monies worth.
We were in a baseball tournament and had about 17 families staying at this resort all at once and NOT ONE COMPLAINT!! GREAT JOB!!!

I booked through www.vrbo.com and not through the resort. Our placce was amazing. Spacious, clean and updated. One resort itself was beautiful, nice landscaping and clean, again well maintained. The children's pool was closed, which was a let down, however, they let us use the pool across the street that had a slide and that went over really well with the kids!! Overall, one of the nicest places I have stayed:)
