“Good location”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

First the Pros: We had a 4th floor unit, beautiful view of Ocean. Even though not right on the beach we enjoyed the view more than some beachfront properties due to being able to see palm trees. The location of the condo is very nice, right across the street from the Crescent Grocery Store, Captain Curt's, City PIzza, and other shops. Very close to the main bridge. The pool and grounds are kept up nice. They come by during the week and ask if you would like to exchange towels, linens, beach towels and any other items that provide like toilet paper, etc. Nice touch.

Cons: I agree with the other poster. The light coming into the bedroom was so bad that I had to finally go out the 3rd day and buy 7 blue poster boards and tape. I literally had to make my own "board curtain" to cover over the blinds to get some sleep. Before that it was horrible. They need to invest in some curtains that block all light, like in hotels. The furniture is very uncomfortable, even the chairs on the patio. The bed is only a queen, but there is room for a king, it also wasn't that comfortable. The free beach chairs are pretty old, tacky and need to be replaced. The outlets in the bathroom went out the day before. It was so close to the end of our vacation, we didn't even notify them.

Room Tip: Ask for 3rd or 4th floor, north end of building. The other side might have an obstructed view with...

We made our plans late and this was the only unit available for our schedule. The bedrooms face the front sidewalk. Not only can you hear everyone walking by, but they keep the lights on all night and the blinds did a poor job of blocking the light. Needless to say, sleeping was a challenge. The location is across the street from the beach which is not bad as it is only a short walk through a gate to the beach. But the view of the beach from the balcony is obstructed. You actually end up looking directly into the living room of several units in the building just across from this building. Customer service was less then would be expected from a facility such as this. We were unfortunate to experience a water main break that cut the water supply for most of one day. Not the condo's fault at all, but beyond a phone call they did not offer any assistance to us. No bottled water no nothing. We were under a boil water notice for three days. To top things off, I had accidentally left a very expensive therapeutic pillow I use due to a herniated disk in my neck. We realized this once we got home late in the afternoon and called the condo office that evening and left a message that we left the pillow and also gave them our FedEx number to ship it back to us. We called again and again over four days with no response from Calini. Finally on Wednesday they called back and said they were shipping it. It is a one day ground trip as we only about 1.5 hours away. But by Friday when it did not arrive we called again and they said it was being picked up that day. We then had to pay for overnight Saturday delivery so I did not have to wait three more days to get it on Monday. My suggestion is plan a little further ahead then we did and find another condo to enjoy the white sandy beaches of the west coast of Florida.

Of all the time shares we have stayed this lines up with the best..2 beautiful bedrooms and 2 baths enough and more for us and my brother-in-law and his wife and still have the amenities of the #1 beach in the world and all of the amenities of the surrounding areas. As much to do in this small community as there is to do in a metropolis like NY or Chicago except not as far to travel to and from one venue to another, plus lots of fishing, sightseeing etc. Mere words cannot describe our weeks vacation at Calini Beach Resort. On a check of 10 I would give it a 20.

We spent Christmas week at Calini and had a great time. The resort is smaller and the staff are wonderful. The condo is spotless and extremely well equipped. We stayed there on an exchange and will be looking for it again. It is beautifully decorated and just like being at home. You are across the street from a locked gate that lets you onto the white sandy beach, that was not crowded. We could see the sunset from our huge balcony on the second floor. The gas barbeques were a bonus and always clean .Loved the resort!

Room Tip: The higher you are up, the better the ocean view.

Brought my mother-in-law and her boyfiend here for their 80th birthdays in May '09 for a rented week. Fell in love with Calini and the beach. Had an opportunity to buy 2 consecutive weeks in same unit in May and did so. Beautiful time to be at the beach. Bought 2 more weeks in November and we are here now. Almost like November better:don't need the A/C on but still nice weather and no bugs! Management is constantly up-grading facility:kitchens have new cabinets and granite counter tops and units have been painted. A really nice place to spend a vacation. Beach is rated #1 this year. Check out Calini website for more info.

Room Tip: Corner units are larger with 3 pane sliding door to large porch. Upper floors have a better view of...
