My family and I returned to Marco for the first time in about 7 years and loved staying at the condo. The view is beautiful and we loved waking up to the sound of the waves and the view. You can watch dolphins from the balcony and the greatest view of the sunset. The beach is steps away and beach chairs and towels are provided by the owner. The condo is in great condition and had everything we needed. The homeowners were very responsive. The pool is nice, but nothing extravagant. The sunset grille is extremely convenient to have in the building for lunch by the pool or a quick dinner and drinks.
Our stay was July 29-August 5. We thought this home was very clean, beautiful and more spacious than expected. We had three adults and three children, ages 9, 5 and 3 in our party and were very comfortable. The beach cart with toys, umbrellas and chairs was fantastic and much appreciated.
The easy beach access was really nice with an ideal family atmosphere and the close proximity to activities and restaurants was great. This was our third visit to Marco Island and we enjoyed returning to The Snook Inn and Pelican Bend restaurants. We would also highly recommend a tour on The Dolphin Explorer for "The Dolphin Study Eco-Tour and Cruise" - it was very fun and educational for all 6 of us. I think the kids could have talked to the tour guides all day about dolphins, birds, trees and seashells.
I would have rated 5 stars but there was a lot of construction in the building that was not disclosed before we booked this condo. Only one working elevator meant that from the 6th floor of a 10 story building, we were waiting at least 5 mins and sometimes 15 minutes when we could not use the stairs. I did not enjoy chasing my son while he lost patience waiting in the elevator lobby in 102 degree heat. Seeing the construction personnel repeatedly using the elevator vs. staircase added further irritation. We were also waking up to noise of power tools every morning at 8am and it continued through the day. My son, a daily napper, only napped successfully twice the whole week.
For any other coffee lovers. . . note that there is a Keurig machine - no real coffee pot. We were really disappointed about that (not fans of K-cups and Starbucks is a bit of a hike in the morning) and limped along with instant coffee for the week.
What a great vacation with our daughter's family! We watched a pod of dolphins one day for hours as they frolicked in the surf. Our 2 grandchildren loved playing in the waves, playing tennis, searching for shells, and swimming in the pool. It was a great location also for an Everglades tour and a jetski tour with dolphins. We also participated in beach yoga right next door to Apollo. Many seafood restaurants are in the area and were handy for the times we didn't want to cook, though we had a beautiful kitchen and dining area with granite and stainless steel. The condo came with beach chairs, beach towels and toys. Our rooms were very clean and we'll equipped. We loved having a laundry room in our condo! We had an amazing time laughing and relaxing. Thank you, Rebecca and Chris!
The Apollo is in a great location, right on the beach. Our unit was in very nice condition, with updated cabinets counter tops, appliances, etc. Bedding was very clean and comfortable. Good cable/internet package was helpful since the weather wasn't cooperative. People and staff are very friendly.
The accomodations truly had a homey feeling to it. We had other family members staying at the Apollo, and when they compared their units to the one we stayed in, they really liked how well it was done. Hopefully the unit will be available next year before our other family members beat us to it.
