Excellent Vacation Location - Great Beach
I decided on this location for our family summer vacation based on the description provided and the amenities offered. Besides a family vacation (my wife, our 12 year old daughter, and I) it was also an opportunity to celebrate our 21 year anniversary. <br><br>
When I think of staying on the 16th floor of a high-rise, the first thing that comes to mind is the amount of time you’ll have to wait for the elevator, or how cramped and crowded they would be. That was not the case at all. The four late-model elevators were super-fast and not crowded. <br><br>
Everything was perfect - check in was flawless, the condo was immaculate and it had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was great! You could see not only the beach, but also the houses across the canal with their dock slips. We particularly enjoyed the balcony one hot afternoon - The breeze was perfect and kept us cool. <br><br>
The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were spacious. As I mentioned before, everything was super clean.<br><br>
There is a Publix supermarket just before you get to Singer Island which was perfect to stock up on food and beverages, which you will want to do, as prices are a bit steep onsite (see below).<br><br>
The big pool has a slide which was a hit with all of the kids. There is also plenty of shade available around the pool to nap or catch up on the latest magazines or book. There is a place to purchase and enjoy snacks and refreshing beverages at the pool area. <br><br>
One drawback were some of the ancillary costs and exorbitant prices that you’ll encounter. Parking is $20/day, and you’ll have to tip the valet every time you pick up your car. Then there’s internet/Wi-Fi charges of $10/day. Nothing you can do here… We had dinner at the hotel restaurant for our anniversary - which was delicious, but OUCH… I had 2 double Gin and Tonics and almost fell off my chair when the bill came and it showed a charge of $48 for the two drinks. <br><br>
All in all, a GREAT place to stay. Tiffany was great to work with, is very responsive, and she answered most of my questions right away. I wish we could have stayed a few more days, but the room was booked. <br><br>
Hope this synopsis is beneficial for you.
