We traded into this timeshare for this trip sometime last year. We were pleasantly surprised when we got there. The room was spotless, and updated. We had a gulf front room and had the pleasure of a beautiful sunset nightly. This resort is steps from great food, entertainment, and the gulf. The only thing I can complain about is they...

The place was in need of updating but was clean and had everything we needed. There was construction going on in the parking lot and hard to find a space. But it was quiet and the people were very friendly. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.

Our review is based on our recent five week stay as interval week owners. For Facebook users, a group has been created - CORAL REEF OWNERS. We received notification that ongoing construction was taking place at the Coral Reef and the adjacent grounds but it was greatly understated - “there will be intermittent noise/dust during this time” For the first...

This was an RCI trade for us and we went Dec 2014. It is a great location and the staff was excellent w/us. Upgraded to Ocean Front for $50 for the week. Granted, it was very low season in Dec and lower than ~20% occupancy. But, why not for the oceanfront. I did not see any danger that some people...

Truly a gem! What courteous staff, what friendly people, and what a wonderful experience! I came for the beautiful beach, and was enchanted. I stay in a lot of hotels, and this one was stellar - clean, modern, and well-designed. The location was central and convenient, too. I echo what others have said - the local restaurants are superb! I...

The only thing this place has going for it is the location - on St. Pete Beach. The entire place should be torn down, not just 1 building. This is one of the worst time-shares that we have stayed in in 35 years. We had to have maintenance in twice to fix the AC that wasn't working properly and was...

The old street side portion of the building is being torn down and will be rebuilt eventually as a Hotel I believe. Until the demolition and reconstruction is completed I cannot recommend staying here. After the new building is up it will be better. Demolition started abt 3-1-15. Check before booking condos.

I did not have any issues with the place. I think it depends on time of year you are here. Our room was on the first floor, everything was new or near new. Right on the beach, right on the main drag. we were mid resort, not close to beach but not near roadway. This resort is behind a building...
