Jamaica Royale has been known to many for years as a quiet sanctuary where life's cares slip away. It's location on the Key is prime and the three pools lets guests have their pick. Amazing fun and a very relaxing spot to unwind.
My wife and I stayed at this property for three weeks and it was wonderful. The unit was as described and clean. Also very close to the pool, which was wonderful. We walked the beach every day, and went to the Drum Circle every Sunday evening. The village is near with all the entertainment you could want. Looking forward to next year we rebooked the same unit as soon as we got home. Very happy and excited to return. Thank you Scott and Darla.
Water would not go down when taking shower. Called Scott. Told him we did not want plumber in unit unless we were there. Told him to have plumber call us before entering. Plumber came in while my purse, i-pad, credit cards, etc were all out.
Vertical blinds fall off when you open, some are taped on.
Mold in bathtub. Mattress OLD. 2-3 inch piece of foam on top of old mattress. 3 chairs at table instead of 4. Patio dirty with
mold. Leather couch so dirty we never sat on it. Terrible smell in unit. They had electric candle on to mask the smell.
Should be advertised as garden villa or apt. "condo" implies unit in a tower. Sewer lid right outside door, very easy to trip on. Screens are tore and 40's original windows do not open.
I absolutely would never stay in this unit again. We wanted to
but manager would not refund our money. Air cond. would not take humidity out of unit.
We've been back home now for over a week and we really miss this place. First of all we loved Jamaica Royale. The location, grounds, pools, beach were perfect.
The weather was absolutely wonderful. We also loved being so close to a pool. What a great location this was. We did not have a car however that did not bother us at all. Being close to the beach, we walked on the beach every morning either to the village or towards Captain Curts (restaurant, also close to shopping, grocery store). A 20 minute walk one way and a 30 minute walk the other. Perfect for us. Siesta Key village is very charming and offers a great selection of restaurants, bars, shopping. A must see.
Very comfortable and clean when we arrived. Everything, all equipment worked well. Loved the colours of the furniture and accents. Loved the outside sitting area overlooking the grounds. We used it morning and afternoons after spending the day at the beach. This condo had everything we needed. We appreciated having access to chairs, beach towels, parasol, etc.... The kitchen, although it needs a facelift, is also very well stocked. Living room well furnished as well as the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable. This condo did not have a washer-dryer however not a problem as there are laundry facilities on the resort. All in all, it is a very nice place and we would have no hesitation to refer our friends and family to this condo. The only issue we had was with the water in the tub - it did not drain properly when taking a shower. Since it was not a huge thing, we chose to inform the owner upon our return home.
One last thing. We flew in from Canada. The owner's cleaning staff were to text us the code for the door of the condo once the condo was cleaned however, being in flight, our phone had no service. Upon landing, we did not receive a text and could not reach the owner. It was a bit stressful as the owner did not answer his phone and we had no other contact. We eventually got the code, approx 45 minutes later. All this to say, next time I would ask to have access to the code prior to leaving home. We rent through VRBO all the time and this is the first time we've had a situation such as this. Lesson learned.
Overall we were thrilled with our one month stay in March 2015. The condo unit is clean and uncluttered, and it is stocked with everything you might need- enough dishes, glasses, silverware, towels, etc. The king sized bed is comfortable, albeit a bit soft. A good sized closet fit our suitcases and clothing, and there is plenty of drawer space in the two bureaus.
The unit is in a single level building so there is no one above or below you. We came to appreciate the location of the unit- not too close to the pools in the complex, but just a short walk to them. It is also far enough off the street so there is no traffic noise. It was a 2 or 3 minute walk down a pleasantly landscaped and paved path to the absolutely gorgeous private beach. Chairs are provided by the complex- they replaced most of them with brand new chairs this month, and they were always available, even during the busiest weeks in March. We also spent a lot of time on the outdoor patio outside our unit, which looks out to a well maintained grassy area. The grass was always cut, and the pools were heated and clean. Parking was easy- right in front of the unit, and access to trash and recycle bins could not be more convenient.
Scott was very responsive to our needs. The glass sliding door needed some attention and he sent someone over to take care of it. He called or stopped by twice to make sure that we had everything we needed, and delivered a brand new microwave. We had no problem with the bathtub- it seemed to drain just fine. We tried putting in a new battery in the clock above the dining room table but it still didn’t work. It probably needs to be replaced..
The only complaint we had, which we talked to him about- was that the cleaner showed up to clean the unit at 3:40 pm, and let us in at 3:59 pm. It seemed unnecessary to have waited that long when the previous tenants were out of the unit by 11 am, and we wondered how much cleaning could have happened in that amount of time.
All in all, staying at this condo exceeded our expectations and we hope to return someday.
This condo has generous space for a one bedroom along with nice closet space. It's open concept is an extra benefit as is parking right outside your door, ease of trash disposal and recycling. The unit was clean when we arrived with plenty of bath towels. Bath is small but clean and has plenty of hot water and good pressure. As noted in other comments; more kitchen towels are needed, patio door is hard to work and the tub did drain slow. These are minor issues and should not distract someone from renting. The grounds are well maintained, pools are heated, beach chairs provided and great location. We would recommend this place to friends.
