best deal on the island
Me and my colleagues come to Paradise Island every January for work. I rent all 4 apts that the Owner, owns. Me and My colleagues feel it is the best deal on the island, considering location, amenities and price. Considering the complex is right on the beach, a few minutes walk over to Atlantis, and has a restaurant/bar on the property that is actually reasonably priced (considering the prices on the island and over at Atlantis and other resorts), I haven't found a better option. 9a is the unit that I, personally, always choose. Why? becuase it has the best view of the ocean out of all the units. I can sit all day and look at the ocean! I luv it! Diana is wonderful to work with. She's always available at most hours and if she's asleep, she gets back to you immediately in the morning. (we keep late hours when we work)
If anyone complains, in my opinion they are expecting too much in comparison to price. If you want to spend well over $500 a night for just a hotel room, you can have luxury at any of the high end hotels. (where you won't have a kitchen to cook in which will add to your budget) Also, you have to take into consideration you are in a foreign country (yes it is not the USA) and things are not done in the same way nor at the same speed. So you must have a bit of patience. It's not the owner or manager - it's just the way the country works that you are visiting. I highly recommend staying here!
Thank you for your kind comments and look forward to welcoming you back next year. As you mentioned the view is magical. We have added more to Sunrise 9A as we go through renewal and keep presentation fresh and appealing. It gives us great satisfaction to respond to travellers needs.
Not worth your money
There was an ant infestation in the kitchen, broken dishwasher, broken stove and broken hot water heater. So if hand washing dishes, cold showers and ants in your unevenly cooked food sounds like something you are into, this is the place for you. We informed the property manager on day 2 of the broken dishwasher and stove, as well as the ant infestation. She said the ants were normal and there's nothing they could do about it and then said she would "check into it" for the dishwasher and we never heard back. We didn't feel like dealing with service people while on vacation, so we made do and rode out the rest of our "vacation," despite another major appliance not working properly. We attempted to work with the owner on the issues, he blamed us for not managing his service people. After having 3 major appliances "break down" (or maybe not being serviced and fixed properly on a regular basis in the first place), we found it odd that the owner's perspective was that we should have done more to fix the broken appliances.
Also, warning that the pools are not heated and the ocean in this area makes it dangerous to swim, so if you are here in the early spring months, you won't be able to swim in any warm water.
This property was a quick 5 min walk to Atlantis.
The villa was being cleaned as prior guest left lots of cleaning and laundry to be done, therefore the villa was not ready at exactly 3pm. Marcia was there doing the final touches, then I went in with a few new items that was needed. I met traveller and I apologized for being on her time and that we would soon be out. We left.
The following Monday March 5, 2018, I called Traveller, as I usually do, to find out if everything is well with my new guests so I would be able to address any concerns that they may have. She said that she left food out and there were ants attacking the food, the hot water is all out, only half of each burner on the stove is heating, that she have to keep turning the pot from side to side to cook, that the dishwasher is not working in that it is not washing the dishes clean. The pool is not heated and her little girl cannot go in the pool's cold water and the beach was to rough for her to swim.
I told her that we are in a tropical climate and there are times ants come out..it happens to me at home at times, ( we laughed) . I went on to tell her that I will have the technicians come and check the other issues but she declined. I also told told her that myself or the lady she met cleaning the unit would be there while the technicians address these matters, that they won't be there unaccompanied . She did not want to have them checked, SHE DECLINED. I said to her that it is highly impossible for all the burners on the stove to only heat on onEside. She said that she will get along fine. I asked her if she's sure she don't want the items checked and that its not a bother to me to have the persons come and check things out. she assured me she was fine.
My report-Traveller booked and stayed at Sunrise 9A .I was asked by her to pay $1500, or I will get a negative review. That statement is to punish us economically, because we refused to respond to her $1500 demand. On the merit of the case alone we would look at fixing the problems if allowed- which I found out we were not, and if unable to fix relocate or spontaneously compensate reasonably.
Could we have handled this case better ? - Yes if permitted! We deal with all complaints seriously and most travellers alert us to things we can fix readily, and we have good communication, This is the second time only when a traveller demanded payment or they would write a negative review. We don't pay to silence reviews, and you may contact us for reassurance.
Overall it was okay, but we saw better
The overall property was good. We had other families staying in different units that were definitely more updated, had better amenities and were left better stocked. Had us wishing we would have been able to get one of the other units. It wasn’t bad, but things were outdated, there was very little water pressure, beds were worn and the little bugs while we cleaned and cleaned kept coming back. We did love the pool, beach, Violas and staff. We didn’t have any issues, but when seeing compared to other units it wasn’t as nice.
Thank you for your objective comments. The tiny mini bugs are a nuisance and are our on our radar and are being stopped. They do return easily. Bed wise we shipped a lot of new supplies and 9A is getting update in bedding etc.,
All your comments are very helpful and we like to keep up with making sure things are comfortable and are presentable. This one will be a good one once again for a return visit.
Good, but could have been better.
The best thing about this villa is its location. It's only a 0.5 mile from the Atlantis and a few shops. The gorgeous beach was not crowded, and the restaurant on the grounds has delicious food.
Our stay was plagued by not having the correct access codes, which started on arrival with our door code not working. We had to call/text internationally to correct this. The following day we learned the beach access code also did not work. The key to the pool seems to only work on one side of the gate. And later in the week we found the laundry access was incorrect as well. It may be that management is not keeping the owner in the loop, but it definitely was the most frustrating part of the experience.
The master sink is also very slow to drain. My husband took a plunger to it to no avail. There were also ants in the kitchen area, which may be typical of the area. But, there was bug spray under the sink that we sprayed on the trash can to help with the ants down there. Every beach vacation we have had seems to have some minor issue with bugs of some kind. (I'll take ants over palmetto bugs that plague the southern US beach homes.)
All in all, we would return to this villa again. With the long delays we had on arrival at the airport due to weather, and after our taxi driver took us to the wrong villa, finding out our codes were not correct was a bad way to start our vacation. Hopefully if we did this again, it would go more smoothly. The owner was very quick to reply to our access issues, however, so that was nice.
Thank you for your patience with keycodes. We will place instructions within villas and update. They change frequently. Ants-tiny ones are not uncommon and when eliminated will come back. Not the biting type luckily.
Location was everything
Location was great!
Great location and perfect for families!
Our family of 5 stayed in 9A Sunrise Condo for three nights after 4 nights at Atlantis. It was the perfect way to end our Bahamas trip by getting away from the people at Atlantis and enjoying a quiet, relaxing three days on the beach. The location was perfect with access to a beautiful, not crowded beach, a nice pool, and walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Having Violas restaurant on site was a great added bonus. The condo itself had plenty of room for our family and all the amenities needed for our stay. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for other families.
Thank you for sharing your experience and delighted it met your expectations.
The Bahamas itself is relaxing to visit and having access to such a unique property will be reinvigorating for the whole family. A large busy hotel is not all that relaxing and very overwhelming. However when you want to access Atlantis that is easily achieved- the casino, beach and restaurants are open always. An Aquaventure pass allows full access to Atlantis grounds and the water slides -which are exhilarating. A tour of Atlantis pass is just that- a tour of the grounds, which are out of this world. Our favourite time to visit is at night. Cabbage beach -the beach at you doorstep is one of the most breathtaking views in the world. The turquoise ocean and heaped sand , uncrowded at the Sunrise stretch is a remarkable vista.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, wildlife viewing, Health/Beauty Spa
