Beach is beautiful and location is convenient to Pier Park. Our unit does not have a dresser, enough bed linens, and multiple burned out light bulbs. The biggest concern is the missing screws on the balcony railing (we are on the 16th floor!!). I contacted the front desk as well as the rental company, Resort Collection. They said they would send someone to repair the railing but no one has been by to fix it (seems a safety hazard to me). We are staying in 1629. Sadly no one came to repair the railing today. It frightens me that the unit will continue to be rented and nothing will be done to prevent a tragic accident. Checked in again and overheard the conversation, maintenance looked at it and deemed it safe? Really???

The hotel is right on the beach. All units face the gulf with great views. It has 3 pool and activity areas that never felt overcrowded. The room was ok, the quality of the matresses was very poor, spring mattress which felt like being on a water bed. The couch was super worn, so much so that the cushions felt like rocks.

Location was great. Hotel set up was bad with parking garage then over a skywalk then up & down elevators. Pool was dirty. Room had several broken items such as the sliding patio door, toliets did not flush, towel bars broken in both bathrooms, tv in living room did not work, sand on floors of the room. One of the days the staff showed up to put a hole above the dryer. They cut a hole dust all over as we stood there. We told them about the patio door nothing was ever done very dangerious if there was a small child. Handle and door were both broken room should of not been booked if that was already noted to staff and owners.

The location was great. The fact that there wasn’t a bar open on the property was not good. Pool bar was closed and the sky bar never opened. And the howling that came through the door to the master off the balcony kept us up all night. Will try another place next time.

When we arrived at our room, it was halfway cleaned so we had to call to have it cleaned. They finally arrived at 10pm to clean it. Also, when I started to do laundry, no water was hooked up to the washer, but after we complained about it, they fixed it.. I paid way too much money for this room for it to be uncleaned!!!!!! The resort was nice, but a lot of walking from the garage to the resort room, and their is a wait time on their elevators too.
