This was our first stay here and I'm sure we will stay again. I would consider it a medium size complex with 70 or so rooms. Nice outdoor pool and sunbathing area. Right next door to Sea n Suds restaurant, many other restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Thought we usually stay at the Boardwalk, the review will be on room 687. This place was nice, well maintained and had all we need for our vacation (blender, utensils, washer/dryer, etc). It's a smaller condo so the beach is not overcrowded when you go down to the Gulf. It is also located right beside Sea-n-Suds which is a great...

Boardwalk is not a bright flashy new condo building. It does not have onsite fitness center nor heated pool. Your condo experience will depend upon the individual owners. some owners have updated their condos, stock them with high quality furniture and supplies and are open to assisting you with any issues. some are in it just for the dollars and...

Location was great, livingroom needed more sitting. Kitchen needed flat wear, dishes and glasses. Mattress was worn. Other than that it was fine for 2 adults. Was very clean. Great view of the beach. I'll stay again.

We stayed in 187 it was a corner and first floor the pool was directly under our deck and that was fine so we could watch the kids. However it was also next to the walkway to a restaurant that was on the beach front so not any privice if we had been looking for some. The room it's self...

This grandmother had the pleasure of visiting with daughter, two grandchildren and stayed in unit 386. The location, closeness to elevator, the upscale decor, huge new wall mounted tvs, wifi, freshness and cleanliness of furnishings in unit 386 was great. How fabulous for this multigenerational group; beach front, gorgeous view, restaurant accessibility, all of it added up to a great,...

If you can find the right owners that take pride in their place..don't let it go. Unit 785 just keeps getting better every time we go. It is always very clean, the owners are always available to answer any questions or find the answer for you. It is updated and we just always feel right at home. I hate to...

The floor was dirty, had to wear shoes in the condo the whole time. There were "splatter" marks of some kind on the wall and baseboard in the bathroom and in the kitchen (the cleaning service should have cleaned it because it was very noticeable). Just didn't seem clean at all. The parking is horrible.. The Sea N Suds and...
