AMAZING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I spent 5 days in SPI at this condo. The condo was absolutely perfect for a beach getaway and exactly as described by the owner. The only negative aspect of the vacation was that the weather was unseasonably cold and cloudy for 3 of the 5 days; however, we were able to use the hot tub which is essential when the weather is not ideal. The view from the balconies was definitely the highlight of the property. It is the perfect venue to read a book, or have an afternoon cocktail overlooking the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

WONDERFUL CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at this condo. I was amazed by the view when we arrived. I loved how close we were to the beach. The pool was clean and very refreshing after a day at the beach. I would definitely stay here again!

Thanks Greg and Sandy!

GREAT FACILITY WITH GREAT BEACH -AREA NOT SO MUCH.

  • 4 of 5
We had a room on the 4th floor and the view from the living room and balcony could not have been more perfect. The beach was very accessible and literally out the back door of the facility. The beach was clean and not overly crowded
The facility was well kept. Our condo had everything we needed and was neat clean and well furnished. As far as the SPI area we were a bit disappointed. We just had this sense that all the merchants and restaurants were sort of scam artist. We did not know about any of the restaurants so we tried to pick basis the reviews online. None of the overwhelmed us.
Don't go to Senor Donkey unless you like bland Mexican cuisine and want to pay extra just for chips and salsa. That surprised us. We would not go back.
D' Pizza Joint was good and prices reasonable.
Pier 19 was "okay". Maybe a 4 on scale of 1-10.
SPI Brewery was just "okay".
As far as activities there is a ton to do but be sure and bring your credit card.
Parrot Eye - the boat broke down after we had arrived an hour early per their instructions over the phone. The people are very cordial but seem a little shifty. One boat driver took a picture of my wife and daughter and never said a word to them before he did so. This freaked my wife out seeing that they had our home address, my DL #, phone number and my 18 year old daughters name. We won't go back there. It all seemed a bit slippery.
All I can share about shopping is my wife's comment that every shop had almost the exact same merchandise and their signs out front were totally misleading.
Overall the area stuck out as a tourist trap. I travel a lot so I understand these type areas but this was more like being across the border and feeling like you needed to be very guarded hen dealing with merchants and restaurants.
To end on a happy note - The Aquarius facility was perfect and very reasonably priced.

WONDERFUL LOCATION AND VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
The condo was very clean upon arrival including the bathroom which in my book is a major plus. The view was wonderful from the balconies and listening to the waves with the doors open was very relaxing. When we rented it, we didn't realize that it was Spring Break. Overall it was a very quite location even with a lot of college kids around. The pool area and property were well maintained. When we couldn't locate the access for the Wifi connection, we sent an email to the owner and he promptly replied. He even called one day to make sure everything was alright. I did miss not having a hair dryer available, but learned to live with air drying. Since we were here on vacation and no real plans it wasn't a big deal but did take some timing on my part. The condo was well supplied with linens but there are no beach towels or any in the pool area. The beach is very well maintained. While staying here we ate at several restaurants. Our two favorites were Pier 19 for food, relaxing, and watching the sunset: and Palm Street Pier Restaurant and bar. The fish tacos at Palm Street are absolutely wonderful. We encountered friendly people everywhere and nobody imposed themselves on you. I would definitely stay here again and hope to in the future.

LOVED THE VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay. Everything was as described, close to beach, great views from both balconies, and secured behind gates, both at parking lot and the beach. Owner answered email extremely quick about the wireless Internet. He even called during our stay to check and make sure we were happy with the condo. Not many owners personally would ever do that. We've gone through many rent by owners and this is the first time one has ever called to check. Would recommend this condo highly, and we plan to rent again when we go back to the island next time.
