We stayed at Residencias Reef Unit 5200. Here's the scoop!
Great Condo Association in general. Grounds are really nice and pool is top notch. Awesome awesome view, closest to the beach and right by the pool. Very spacious! Master bedroom has private bath, wonderful view and veranda. Second room has King bed and privae bath also, but the veranda is loaded with trees, so no view there, but still nice room. Third bedroom is quite small but does have it's own shower. This would be great for a single person, but not a couple.
Huge wrap around deck with gorgeous views.
Washer and dryer works really well.
Cons: Furniture is TERRIBLE!!!! Not one comfortable piece of furniture in the place, what a shame!!!!!! Two plastic strap chaise lounge outside , only one was completely broken, why do they have it there is beyond me. Three of those super cheap plastic lawn chairs. Two small tables and 5 chairs. Stiff as a board with dirty cloth seats. So basically, great porch, but no place to sit and enjoy it with any comfort at all!!!!
Beds are extremely hard, which some may like. I can handle that, but the sheets on our bed were the thinnest crappiest sheets with heavy pilling. Worst I've seen in years!! Strangely enough, there were several sets of new sheets in the closet in the other room. I helped myself to a set. Much better. I also changed out the comforter since mine had two big sp-rm stains on the top right in the middle of the bed. GROSS!
The kitchen had no dishwasher and NO LIGHTS! Only a few little overhead can lights. Very hard to see to cook or wash dishes. I took a lamp from the bedroom and used it on the counter. It helped a it, but wasn't great.
Living Room had an old TV with Dish. We could only get 2 channels, just forget it! Good thing we had movies and computers. There is also no wifi.. seriously, in this day and age? Only a router you had to be hardwired to. Luckily we hooked onto the neighbors, but did get kicked off often. The two couches in the living room were filthy dirty. Luckily the extra sheets could be used as covers. Also, you sank down about two feet in them. Not comfortable at all! Cheap glass top tables that were wobbly and not a coaster in the house, so every time you put down a drink it made a ring.
I've rented many vacation homes and condos in the past years. It's a shame they are soooo chinsey with amenities here. I have stayed at other units on the property and this was by far the worst! Find a different unit!!!
