Okay but not great

  • 3 of 5

The Diamond Beach facility as a whole is very nice and the staff was helpful.The game room is great, the pools are very nice and the lazy river was a huge hit with the family.

This particular property was cute but that is where it stops. If you plan to cook anything, it is best to bring EVERYTHING you need. The kitchen was poorly stocked, no decent knives, no cutting board, very few pans and REAL silverware, really? The floors were filthy and left all of our feet black.

This property also only has 1 key!! Very inconvenient for a family of 5. Even the concierge upon checkout commented, "this is the weird one with only 1 key". Keep in mind there is not covered parking with this property either.

Friends of ours stayed in a unit on the 3rd floor that had multiple keys, covered parking, well stocked kitchen and decent cleaning supplies. If we return to Diamond Beach, we will definitely look at other properties.

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

This unit is so adorable and decorated perfect. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the condo. The property is very clean. Great pools (not heated) and hot tub. Beach access is not very good. We had a stroller which we had to pick up to get down the path. My mom struggled walking down the rocky path etc too. Says spa at condo, it is closed, which we wanted to use.

Beautiful but Lots of security to be aware of, and not enough beds for 8 ppl

  • 5 of 5

Ok, so this place was super nice and new. The resort has tons of amenities too, like a game room with free games, and amazing pool with a lazy river and spa, indoor pool, fitness room, bar, etc...

This place is also super strict on security. Everyday renters must go to the front desk and get new wristbands to be on the property. Also there is only parking for two cars, so anyone else must park outside the facility which is 6 dollars a day. Not a lot of money, but a pain bc there is no direct access from that parking lot to the resort. (I'd recommend dropping your stuff off first then driving around and parking). You can pay the parking fee by phone though, so that's convenient. To get in and out of the building you use key fobs, and then you have keys for your actual apartment.

The actual apartment is decorated fabulously, with plenty of cups, plates, silverware, ect... The bedrooms are nice but have no windows. all light comes from the front room. Not really an issue, but just letting you know.

As for sleeping 8 people, I'm not sure this is possible without an air mattress. The sofas dont have pull out beds! We had 7 in our party, and one person slept on the twin day bed in the living room. This messed up our plans a bit, bc I had promised my single friend a room, and then my husband and I only had a twin bed to share in the living room. Maybe I didn't read the description closely enough though, so that's why I gave this place 5 stars. Also, the owner tell you to bring beach towels, and she's not kidding! There are none, so bring them!

Anyways, super nice, know that security and rules are strict, and you will have a great time!

Also the staff at this resort were super nice, so that's a plus!

Great Diamond Beach visit!

  • 5 of 5

You guys. I almost don't want to write a positive review for this unit because I want to keep it as secret as possible so there's a better chance of it being available whenever I want it, but alas, that's not fair!

:-)

I've started at Diamond Beach before and as a property, it's great. It's very luxurious, clean,band quiet. It's in a great location and you don't have to cross the street to get to the beach! Check in and check out have always been easy and the staff has always been polite. The amenities are great.

This stay in this unit has been my favorite. Firstly, communication with the owner was easy and she was super helpful and quick in her replies. Everything was easy and uncomplicated. The condo itself is gorgeous; you can tell the owner takes great pride in keeping it up and has fun making it comfortable for guests. The decor is impeccable and everything looks 5-star but also manages to be comfortable. All of the essentials were stocked, there were plenty of towels, blankets, and dishes. There were even some unexpected extras, like a big basket of baby toys in closet (this was awesome for us as we were traveling with a 19 month old). Cable and wifi were easy to use and the view...the view is amazing.

My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that there was only one key available.This didn't cause us much issue (although it would have been nice to have an extra) but I can see how that would make things tricker with more guests.

I hope to be back again and again!

Family Weeked

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay and wished we could stay longer. Your condo is comfortable with great beds and well stocked kitchen. The pools and grounds are nicely maintained and the property felt very safe! This was a last minute booking and the owner was pleasant to work with. We would recommend to anyone.
