Brett/Robinson Gulf Corp
Great location, fair price
We absolutely loved the location of this condo. The pictures don’t do the beach justice, and it’s conveniently located to a Publix, Walmart, drug store, souvenir shops and attractions without a huge amount of beach traffic.
The condo — and Phoenix V property as a whole — was clean but showing its age. There was some wall damage and other signs of wear and tear in the room. The sliding door is extremely hard to open, especially from the outside. The pool tile lining was cracked, and several elements of the splash pad weren’t operating.
Another note: This property apparently has no regulations on loud music, so some guests brought amps to the poolside and blared country music throughout the day and into the night. This condo is on the ninth floor above the splash pad, and we could hear the music and noise from the pool on our balcony through the evening.
Check-in is done at the condo front desk, not at the Brett Robinson office across the street. The text we received letting us know the room was ready said “the Brett Robinson front desk,” which confused us.
The TV and WiFi work great, the AC is excellent and the water is hot. The beds are cozy and the rooms surprisingly quiet. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked with dishes, utensils and glassware. The pull-out couch was sparse and squeaky, so we didn’t pull it out, choosing instead to put our 4-year-old in the generously sized king bed with the parents. The elevators — there are four — are fast, and there are plenty of carts and buggies to help you with luggage and groceries. The view from the balcony is lovely. We saw dolphins near the shore on our last morning.
Overall, I would say this is a good condo for the price compared to similar ones available when we booked for a late-summer stay. I hope the owners will take a look at some of the wear and tear that has occurred in the room and see if they can make the sliding door easier to open. And I’d love to see the property consider a “no music” policy on the pool grounds.
