The apts are in a great location on the beach and well appointed but not very spacious. Facilities are also good with a good size pool(could do with more sun umbrellas), children's pool, bar, cafe, small gym, business centre and mainly covered parking.

The apts are in a great location on the beach and well appointed but not very spacious. Facilities are also good with a good size pool(could do with more sun umbrellas), children's pool, bar, cafe, small gym, business centre and mainly covered parking. However housekeeping services were not being offered as originally offered/ booked using covid as an excuse. Not a reason, only an excuse as we had previously stayed in two other Florida accommodations including a Disney hotel and both offered housekeeping of some sort. No recompense was offered. On that basis I must rate the Sunset Vista as only 3 star. Read less

Disappointed with this visit. This is our 3rd time to stay here and as we haven’t visited since 2019 we treated ourselves to Gulf View Room. Room very dated and in need of an upgrade, walls painted in patches to cover marks, shower curtain stained, markings around bath.

Disappointed with this visit. This is our 3rd time to stay here and as we haven’t visited since 2019 we treated ourselves to Gulf View Room. Room very dated and in need of an upgrade, walls painted in patches to cover marks, shower curtain stained, markings around bath. We felt room had been given a very quick clean before we arrived, not the thorough clean you would expect. Bathroom especially noticed with dust on skirting, fan in ceiling, and bath not cleaned properly for new guests arriving. Outdoor areas and pool very well maintained. Location really good with only steps to the beach. Bar area lovely except could do with a few more umbrellas at tables like before. Special mention to Sharkey and Cheryl in bar who were very friendly and professional. Overall we had a great stay but just feel standards have dropped and this needs to be addressed before customer loyalty drops as prices have gone up. Read less

We went with a large group and reserved multiple rooms. While the room was spacious and worked great for our stay, it sure could have used a thorough cleaning. Too many spots were missed and just plain nasty. Pros- A/C was great after being in the hot sun all day. Kitchen was great to cook up a quick meal and not spending $$ going out. Location… Read more

Too many spots were missed and just plain nasty. Pros- A/C was great after being in the hot sun all day. Kitchen was great to cook up a quick meal and not spending $$ going out. Location was wonderful. Tiki bar was nice to sit at night and have a drink. I did see other rooms in our group and they seemed to be more updated- so, maybe they are working through each room as time allows. Read less

Read the reviews and weighted the good ones vs. bad ones and thought ok let’s try it out. We’ll it was just “ok” and we’ve agreed we’ll be back to this area but won’t stay here again. First the good: location, walking distance in both direction to lots of shopping and restaurants. The beach was awesome, white sands and very clean. The cafe, and amenities like pool were good too. Not too many tourists either which was great for peak season of mid July. Now to the not so good: our condo was filthy and not clean at all. You could tell the cleaning staff spot cleaned most of the surfaces but not all. I found bottle caps, sand on the coffee-table and unvaccumed floors. Why condos on the beach have carpet are beyond me. The furnishings were terribly worn, dirty and outdated. It was a total let down as we didn’t want to sit on anything. Just gross. We booked through Travelocity and the condo 612S had a nice view but no beach stuff. I was talking to a lady that booked through Vrbo and they had beach chairs, umbrella, towels etc in their condo. Regardless of rental companies all condos should have beach gear in them. We rented chairs and umbrella on the beach for $40/day. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed the area but if/when we visit here again we’ll pass on staying here. Read less

The location is excellent, the beach is clean, and the Gulf floor behind the hotel is perfect, not too deep and a nice sandy bottom. The pool and spa were really clean too given how many people were in and out of them all day. And honestly, there were just too many people for the size of the pool. On top of that, the pool restroom requires… Read more
The location is excellent, the beach is clean, and the Gulf floor behind the hotel is perfect, not too deep and a nice sandy bottom. The pool and spa were really clean too given how many people were in and out of them all day. And honestly, there were just too many people for the size of the pool. On top of that, the pool restroom requires walking up a flight of stairs to the second floor. The unit is small, but manages to squeeze in everything you need, kitchen, washer/dryer and TVs in rooms. I would say perfect for up to four people, but any more and you will feel cramped. The unit was generally clean, but the baseboards and other details haven't been touched in a really long time. The built-in hair dryers weren't operational, a remote didn't work, and a couple light bulbs were out. Read less
