Very Good! 4.2/5 -
(16 traveler reviews)

$199 nightly special oceanview, poolview, Top Floor Townhouse 2 bedroom,2 bath
average rating of 4.1875 based on 16 reviews

The amenities were great, the room it's self needed some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

The place was beautiful. The kitchen area had a leak in the ceiling from the broken shower above it. The dishwasher did work but everytime it was opened it gave off a foul odor. The beds were uncomfortable. The grounds were kept up really well and the pools were really nice. The work out area was for cardio only; treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes. There is a $20.00 parking charge and wrist bands for the pool areas. No beach area directly across from the condo. You have to drive about 5 minutes to the nearest area, but go south if you want a quieter atmosphere and go north for the crowded beach. Every restaurant was good that we ate at. BRING EXTRA TOWELS you will want them.

Beautiful view, but a few issues

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this condo over Spring Break.


-Comfortable couches living room - will seat quite a few and comfortable for hanging out

-Very pretty view of the pool and ocean waves

-Easy DRIVING access stores/restaurants/ to beach

-Stocked kitchen

-Plenty of paper towels, toilet paper, etc.

-Although small, kitchen updated

-There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets


-The condo is a little confusing to locate by the number - if you follow the numbers, it skips right over it and the condo is located in a complete other building than one would think. When you are arriving in the evening with tired kids, I'm gonna say this was a little annoying.

-The condo seems to have thin walls - you can hear the toilets flushing and a lot of sounds coming from the surrounding condos.

-The shower curtain in the bathroom fell down (this has been mentioned in previous reviews and I was a little surprised it hasn't been dealt with).

-There is an airport directly behind the condos. During the day there is a lot of air traffic and plane noises.

-There seemed to be quite a few things we ran into during our stay that were not terrible in themselves, but added together was a little annoying. Just a couple of examples:

1. The microwave was touchy... sometimes when we would start it, we would have to hold the door closed with pressure to get it to work.

2. The coffee pot was sticky and not cleaned from whomever used it last. I was going to make coffee and opened the top to find old coffee grounds growing mold. (However, this is not a reflection of the whole condo - it was fairly clean as a whole)

- The condo is directly across from the ocean, but NOT the beach (it's rocky, not sand). The sand begins about 1/2 mile down.

-We had a leak in the ceiling while there. We saw it dripping and you could tell it had been repaired before. I called the owner about it and was told that we needed to make sure to keep the shower curtain liners in the shower. The showers are walk-in's with no tub, so it's a little hard to keep the shower curtain in them (especially with kids) but we were very diligent about it and didn't have any more issues.

All in all, this condo was fine. Nothing superb, nothing terrible.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Both restrooms being upstairs was not very convenient, as I didn't know from the pictures that all beds and bathrooms were upstairs.

The Waffle maker was AWESOME! The people before us didn't clean it but I cleaned it and enjoyed the heck out of it.

The pools were awesome and we highly enjoyed our stay with 5 adults and 1 child.

We never even had to leave the property, we made our own meals and utilized the pools and hot tubs.

CONS- the shower curtain in the one restroom did not stay up, after seeing several reviews about this i was sure it would be fixed!

The property has an elevator but for this particular unit you still have to walk up about 12 stairs to get to the door. which was inconvenient with my 72 year old grandmother.

The condo is on the seawall BUT it is on the section on the seawall that doesn't have a beach :(

Perfect Family getaway!!

This was such a great place to! We had a blast! The resort is so clean and all the staff at the property are so nice and helpful. The condo itself is very nice. We had everything we needed! The owner is very nice and easy to communicate with. There is a go kart track next door to the resort that was a blast also! We will for sure be back!

We stayed here during Spring Break and our stay was made very comfortable! This condominium was equipped with everything needed when your away from home! The views are beautiful! The hot tub and heated pool was a plus, since Spring has not fully sprung! We enjoyed every single day we stayed at the Maravilla we are definitely coming back and we recommend this condo to anyone looking for a place they can feel at home!
