Deafening noise and disappointing unit management!!!!
First let me provide the positives, the condo was very clean, comfortable, and newly updated. The balcony is spacious and is well furnished, the beach, although a long walk, is beautiful. I also want to add that I am grateful for the owner for allowing families like ours to use their accommodations for vacations. Now the negative, we were originally booked in tower 4, but due to the replacement of windows damaged in the hurricane 2 years ago, the owner had to cancel our reservation. The owner of that unit was wonderful, always providing us with updates and letting us know what to expect regarding noise etc. This owner directed us to the unit we stayed in, Tower 3. This property manager was not as responsive, but we thought it was probably because she was busy. We checked in just fine, like I said the place was beautiful, we were a little worried about the construction materials in the parking lot and the metal scaffolding in the front of the unit, but thought that we would have been made aware of any potential noise or problems. We were awaken on Monday at 7:45am with he walls vibrating from some kind of drilling. I immediately called the property manager, she reported she would contact the building manager, we finally heard back from her later that day and she assured us that this would only be happening for a day, or at most a day and a half. For the entire week this happened, when I contacted the unit manager again on Wed. she was very flippant, spoke over me, and generally indicated that we were out of luck. I also talked with the building manager who informed me that any and all construction information, contract or individual, was provided to the owners and property managers. The thing is, if we were made aware of the potential of this much noise we would have not booked. We feel it was negligent on the property managers part for not being aware of what was going on in and around the unit. The scaffolding alone was enough noise to wake our daughter up every morning. I know that making vacation reservations is normal for these property managers, but families really look forward to this and save a while to take vacations, for her to be so flippant, with no empathy is disappointing. If you plan on booking here, please make sure the construction is finished, call the building manager they will provide the necessary info., don't go with the unit manager.
Prior to your arrival, no construction notifications had been in effect, which is why you reservation was relocated to this unit. It was also confirmed prior to your arrival with the posted building schedule provided by the building management. It is unfortunate that the building failed to notify us of the shutter installation above you and, as mentioned to you, we did speak to the building manager, who profusely apologized for the error in his communication. It is unfortunate, that Hurricane Irma Repairs have taken some units longer than others. We did everything within our power to have the noise minimized with the building management, however, their was not much we could do as it was independent work being done.
We enjoyed our stay in Marco. The condo was quite comfortable and clean. We loved the size...plenty of room for our family of three. The condo was equipped with everything you could possibly need from towels to beach toys to a fully stocked kitchen. There was truly nothing we needed that we didn't have. Communication was great, and all of our questions were answered in a timely manner.
The furnishings were nice but also comfortable and functional, excluding the king bed in the Master, which could use a new mattress as the middle was higher than the rest of the bed.
The view was pretty, but the water was MUCH farther away than it looked in the photos and it was a long hike to water...easy access to the sand but the walk to the water was far...this is something to consider if you are traveling with small children, elderly, or have any sort of disability.
The pool was lovely but there were a lot of rules, mostly geared toward children (no jumping in, what?!?!?).
It was nice to have on-site laundry and the laundry room is close to the condo.
There was some construction going on (which I knew about in advance) and this really wasn't a bother to us. Parking was easy and it was a breeze to get from the car to the condo.
Overall, it was a great stay. Marco is truly a hidden gem.
A Great Find...
The condi was perfect and the location could not be beat. Beautiful ocean views!
Beautiful beach view
Loved the property
Enjoyed our stay
1 week stay early November, just the wife and I, low season. This is a gated high rise condo . Very nice unit, comfy, well decorated, new kitchen appliances. South facing unit with wraparound balcony, nice ocean view, both sunrise and sunset can be seen, am sure we saw the green flash, but use the nice louvers and shades to block the sun during the day. Decent flat panel TVs, wifi in unit. The common pool area was very nice. Main draw for us is the proximity to the undeveloped Tigertail beach and lagoon, 10 minute hike but great for running ,shelling and birding. Nice restaurants and grocers in the area.Spent several evenings at DaVincis happy hour. A DVD player and a few more towel racks and clothing hooks would be easy improvements. We really enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful and relaxing!
The property was very well kept, the condo was clean and set up perfectly for a relaxing stay! We very much enjoyed ourselves!
Truly a gem! South Seas Tower provides tranquility and privacy all while being minutes away from water activities, shopping, amazing restaurants, and so much more.
