Incredible owner, great unit, and fun stay!
The owner, Mike, is incredible to work with - he's responsive and sincerely wants to see that his guests are having a great experience. A few times throughout the week of our stay we had trivial questions (do we tip the cabana boys, where are spare sheets, etc...). He was exceedingly responsive and very easy to deal with.
The unit itself is well-stocked with kitchen items and other necessities. It is well-decorated and what you'd expect from a vacation rental. The best part: a full sized stackable washer and dryer. Pack less and do a load a day. The views from the balcony are breathtaking; you can see the stingrays and watch thunderstorms roll in and out. Great for kids that are into nature and science to see. There's also a table on the patio, which we ate at every day.
The splash pools and beach were also great. The cabana boys were attentive and always came by to ask what we needed, if we were getting enough shade, etc. Do not bring your own floats unless you have a young child (I'd say 2 or less) as they do not allow other floats in the pools; floats for little ones are ok. Arm band floats are ok, too, but tubes aren't.
My only complaint has to do with check in and check out and HAS NOTHING to do with this unit or its owners. It's a logistical issue. Ugh. As you would expect, with tons of units vacating and checking in on Saturdays, there's quite the backup. There are luggage carts but there was long wait times. Had we known this, we would have checked in later in the day, not right at 4:00 pm. But, we were smart at checkout and put our big items in the car the night before we left and only had our carry bags when we left. It saved us a ton of time! Plan your arrival and departure and it should be a breeze. Next trip to Splash, we will plan better with this knowledge.
Even with the bottleneck at check-in, we will go back to Mike's unit (we are already looking at next year's calendar). You cannot beat the accessibility of the waterpark, the cleanliness of the unit and the beach, the amenities of the condo itself, and the owner. We would totally recommend this unit to anyone that asked.
An A+ vacation for us! Thanks, Mike!
