*Disappointment started at check in. We were told check-in at 4. We didn't get a room until 6:30PM and had to stand in the parking garage during a straight line wind storm. We were told they had 70 people check out that morning, and the rooms weren't ready. Not my problem. They said it would be an hour. It was 2.5 hours. We had to leave our… Read more
*Disappointment started at check in. We were told check-in at 4. We didn't get a room until 6:30PM and had to stand in the parking garage during a straight line wind storm. We were told they had 70 people check out that morning, and the rooms weren't ready. Not my problem. They said it would be an hour. It was 2.5 hours. We had to leave our luggage on a cart outside the office, and when the rain started, we ran up and moved it under shelter in the garage. *Don't use the dryer in the room. Our family had 6 rooms, and someone from every room had black grease streaks on their whites from the dryer. (Dirty gaskets) *Don't walk around barefoot in the room. Those of us who did, for a short time, had black feet bottoms. It was disgusting. Then any socks we wore were black bottomed too. *The room was definitely not cleaned properly. There was a half eaten sandwich in the refrigerator wrapped in a paper towel. Hairs in the tub and on the bathroom floor, and all of us had to wash our sheets and comforters. It was so gross! Blood on some, just dirty on others. The comforter in my room was almost brown at the top where you'd cover your chest and shoulders. And not in a Duvet. *Ugly avacado green drapes, couch and carpeting etc. *White appliances when others had new Stainless ones *Laminate coming off the kitchen cabinetry/drawers. *Our family members were all supposed to be on the same floor and preferable next to each other. Some were on 5, some were on 3, and not next to each other except for one set. *The elevators were dirty and full of sand and spilled beer almost every day. *The view was an ocean peek....not ocean view, and looked out over the parking lot. *Sofa bed was unusable. Not only was it grossly dirty on the surface, but the bed was just springs with a cover over them. *They advertise every other day cleaning/refreshing of towels, but that service has stopped. There's even a sign in the bathroom that says that, but still not a service. *We had to launder our towels daily, after buying laundry soap. *The cafe' is a nice feature. The men who work there are great, but the one woman is so nasty to customers, that we were afraid to go back. And adding the 20% tip on to the bill is ridiculous! *It would have been nice to have some directional signs. There are three different wings with the same room numbers, but they are N,S,W wings. My 85 year old mother got lost several times. *Rooms were sparsely equipped, especially in the kitchen. *Doorbells don't work. *Bathroom for the pool is up on 2. Not convenient. *Beach is beautiful, but very very deep. Long walk to and from the room. *It was so disappointing, especially at the beginning. Not getting our room until 6:30 and then having to do all the bedding laundry ruined our first day, or what was left of it. We paid for a full day, and only got 5.5 hours of that day. Umbrella/chair service was only available 3 of the days of our trip. The guy was nowhere to be found two days, and one day it rained. It may be a third party service, but still, we were counting on the shade. Courtyard is nice, pool is nice. Bar is expensive! Cafe is reasonable and food is good. There are other places that are cleaner and nicer for less money. We felt overcharged, for the cleanliness, the check-in experience and the view. I have pictures if anyone wants to see them.

I am sitting at airport thinking about our stay. This was without a doubt one of the worse stays even experienced and mainly because of the room. We was in W205 right by the bar and the deck.

I am sitting at airport thinking about our stay. This was without a doubt one of the worse stays even experienced and mainly because of the room. We was in W205 right by the bar and the deck. The bar closed at 10 pm which I was good with but then the noise from people that continued to drink and have a good time lasted well into the next morning. First night I dealt with the constant noise and being woke up. The next night I called the office twice and finally told them my next call will be to the police department if they couldnt handle the noise situation. The next morning we went to office and asked what they was going to do about the situation. They offered us a room at their sister property. One thousand times better place! Even though our room was large it was outdated and needs a good remodel. There was rolls in carpet and the layout tells its age. Walls must be paper thin cause we could hear everything and everyone like it was in our room. That sucks when it lasts till 2-3 in the morning! If it wasn’t for the customer service to get us moved this review would be one star. This isn’t a family resort in my opinion. I am all for having a good time while having drinks but there comes a time you need to respect the people who are trying to sleep. Hotel even has a security guard but even then the noise level was high constantly. This place is more of a party drinking crowd place to stay than a family resort to me! Plus the age of the villas would keep me away. Read less

We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of our two bedroom suite. The coffee pot had coffee left in it from the previous occupants, the coffee cups had coffee around the rim, the floors were so dirty our white socks were black within a few minutes. We moved the coffee table and found food and small food boxes under it. The patio table had… Read more
We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of our two bedroom suite. The coffee pot had coffee left in it from the previous occupants, the coffee cups had coffee around the rim, the floors were so dirty our white socks were black within a few minutes. We moved the coffee table and found food and small food boxes under it. The patio table had to be cleaned because of the dried food on it. We had to wash all the dishes before we used them. When asked to have our unit cleaned, we were told it wasn't possible because of covid. I would not stay her again. Plus we paid well over $2000 for all this dirt. Read less

Sunset Vistas is a great place for a family vacation. Great view of the Gulf, and access to the beach is easy. The kids enjoyed both the beach and the pool.

Sunset Vistas is a great place for a family vacation. Great view of the Gulf, and access to the beach is easy. The kids enjoyed both the beach and the pool. The pool was being kept up daily, both the water and cleaning of the furniture. Location is perfect for short easy walks to shopping and restaurants. The boardwalk is a nice way to take a family walk while avoiding the normal street traffic racing by. We had a three bedroom suite that made it very comfortable for our family of 6. The room was clean, however it had a few general wear and tear things that could use some attention (kitchen cabinets, HVAC filter replacement, bathroom deep clean,...). The one problem that we experienced is not something that we consider a problem with the resort, but just an unfortunate nuisance. The room just below us had people that smoked cigarettes/pot and the smoke would blow up through our balcony. It made it tough to enjoy the balcony when we were having morning coffee or trying to enjoy the sunset. Read less

Upon arrival we were told we couldn't check in until after 4:00 but they couldn't tell us when, at 6:30 we were finally in and the room was disgusting. I had to call housekeeping back in. It is old and dirty and the customer service was terrible! They did little to address our concerns and my family and I spent several hours cleaning it so we could stay. There was blood in the carpets, panty liners plastered to the wall and stains all over the furniture. They charged us $500 a night and it was a nightmare. The front desk was not prepared to address our concerns and a manager was never made available. The beach attendant was not particularly helpful and we found the quality of the chairs to be quite low given the daily rate for rental. Read less
