6/10 Good

Rusty areas found especially around windows making them stiff to open and close. Window ledge in kitchen and floors throughout were dirty. There are no frills or extras with the rental, kitchen barely had enough cookware, no salt or pepper, no laundry soap provided. We had to close all sliders every time we left because we were located on the ground floor. It was hot, no a/c. Ocean view was partial view with the surrounding buildings blocking the main view. Nice open area inside with ceilings fans.

10/10 Exceptional

Great location in well appointed room.
Easy check in and check out. Lovely location with sunrise and sunset seen from outdoor patios, as well as whale activity! Quiet, with nice pool and hot tub. Interior was fine except beds were hard and not very comfortable. Minor issues were the fan wasn't working in one of the bathrooms, and door latch was secure but needed repair; it was difficult to use.

4/10 Fair

The unit we were -twenty two zero four-in was very shabby and in need of upgrades. There is peeling paint on the window sill, the bathroom mirrors are rusting, the window slats in the master are rusted open, the laminate on many surfaces is peeling off. Little things like wrong info for wi fi were also bothersome. On the good side, the bed was comfortable and there was a nice, if obstructed, view.

Many things could have made it better
A couple of things to keep in mind with this property 1. Check in is not easy. Castle resorts (who manages the property) had to call me and confirm my stay a week before we went, then called me again after we came to confirm check in and charge me additional fees. NOTE- they will charge you a destination fee and a cleaning fee (cost is about $220) in addition to the booking fee. They collected this after we checked in. 2. This hotel has no AC. We needed to buy a fan and open windows to cool the place down in February. 3. It had a lot of cosmetic issues. Our bathtub floor was black and was clogged. Every shower had me standing in several inches of water. 4. The bed was rock hard. Not comfortable at all. 5. They only had about a 24 inch tv (probably. $50 TV) It was unusable. Our iPad was actually easier to see and had better sound. 6. Overall just felt dirty inside (peeling paint, dirty window screens). Will not stay here again.

Property was in a beautiful location. Unit 2306 was a good size and had an incredible view. With a few upgrades this place really could be great but it appears the managers are more worried about quick fixes than good fixes. The bathrooms are not upgrade except for the paint. Both showers had mismatched tile with cracked and or falling apart grout. The flooring was second rate. If those got upgraded this place could command much more money given the location. The owners should fire the management company. Cheap fixes such as mudding holes in the wall but not painting over the mud is just shoddy and makes you feel like they don't care what it looks like they just want a quick fix. Ian was particularly frustrating. He blamed us for the issues we had. He forgot to notate we needed a crib and blamed us for not having it in the unit when we arrived. Then they refused to bring one until the next day because we arrived late. They blamed us for the any issue in the kitchen saying we left baby formula on the counter which we did not because we didn't have any formula. We asked for assistance moving the glass coffee table because the baby kept falling near it. We were told it would take another 2 days to get maintenance to get there. After that call the baby fell and hit her head on the table. Fortunately I had covered it with a comforter. We then moved the table ourselves. For budget conscious travelers that don't need assistance, this place is worth considering.
