Beautiful property.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very nice with a beautiful view. I only wish I had known the units did not have washer/ dryer. The coin operated machines on the ground floor seemed to always be busy and I was denied towel exchange by the rental office because I hadn't rented through them. Other wise, my stay was awesome!

Needs some improvements

  • 3 of 5

Sunbird condos owned by Royal American Beach Vacations. The condo I rented is dated, but not so much that it really matters. I saw no bugs, the carpet appeared clean, there were no odd smells, and all the appliances worked. During our stay I never heard anyone in the condos around us and I know they were occupied. The view from the balcony is great. You can easily see the setting sun from the balcony or living room. The beach is white sand and clear water. The beach was not terribly crowded, and the surf was perfect for swimming. Also, there were no roaming bands of party-going kids. Mostly families with children. Royal American security routinely walked through the the area ensuring that the rules were being followed. Considering the price and late booking, I was satisfied. However, when we arrived we noticed one of the four dinning room chairs was missing, there were 6 slats missing from the living room blinds......a problem since our two daughters (11 & 13) were using the sleeper sofa. The sleeper sofa mattress was thin, stained, dirty, and there was only one extra pillow that also appeared dirty and stained. The sliding door is very difficult to open. The master bedroom (double bed) was well furnished, however there were no hangers in the closet. The extra acrylic blanket was also clean but had several stains. The double bed was a bit springy and the headboard was not securely attached. It banged violently onto the wall by just sitting on the bed. I had to use pillows from other areas of the condo to brace it and keep it quiet. The living room furniture was clean. The TV and cable worked fine. The WiFi is non-existent. It only shows as an option in settings on spontaneous occasion. None of us were able to use it during the whole stay. I got about 3 bars with T-Mobile and used my iPhone 6 as a hotspot. Do not rent this info if you plan to depend on the free WiFi. I called the front desk about the blinds and maintenance came and replaced the missing slats the same day. We requested extra pillows but no were provided. We came prepared for most of these issues in advance and brought our camping / hiking pads and pillows. The girls also used sleeping bags over the sofa mattress. I will return to the Florida gulf coast next year, maybe even the Sunbird. But not this room.

Subpar

  • 2 of 5

The unit was in a good location, but needed updating. The TV never turned off, sliding patio doors took extra muscle to open/close, Wi-Fi only worked in one corner of living room, and the bed was so hard we could barely walk the next day. Had to go buy a memory foam mattress topper, which we took home with us. Not to mention it was a 1-bedroom, which was good for us, but large families were staying in 1-bedroom units. The sun shined though!
