Family Vacation 2019
Our overall experience was nice. We rented 2 separate condos to accommodate the number of people vacationing. One unit was clearly better than the other (by better I mean general cleanliness ). We reported our concerns to my vacation haven staff and cleaners reported within 30 minutes. After the cleaning staff came to “spot” clean based on our complaints, we found more things as the trip continued. The bunk room was dirty-dried Cheerios and a used q-tip were found in the beds and on the walls. The carpet was filthy and had an odor. The king bed uncomfortable to say the least and needs to be replaced( we ended up sleeping at the foot of the bed a couple of days in to get away from a sink hole at the head of the bed). The toilet in king room was unclean. We did not Easter valuable family time reporting issues every day, but these things made a vast difference in our stay. We have used my vacation haven for the past several years, this was the worse rental. Owners should look at removing carpet and replacing mattresses. Cleaning staff should pay closer attention to details. Great views. Short walk to the beach as stated in the description.Patrice G.

Unit 1209 Desperately Needs Updating
Ariel Dunes is a great Resort. Cabana Cafe is convenient. The pools are nice. Parking is convenient, and the view is great plus being off the road a bit helps with noise. Unit 1209 has clearly not been updated. The carpet is badly stained and well worn past its lifetime. The kitchen is well sfocked but in its original state. The bunk beds were comfortable but the other two were not. There is a television in the MBR. But since it’s not hooked up to cable, it’s useless. Compared to the many nicer, more updated units, this isn’t worth it.

Nice view of the Gulf
We have enjoyed the condo except it was not as clean as I expected. Spots in the living room rug, we had to clean the windows on the deck plus clean the deck. I hope after we leave the cleaning people will do a better job an whoever inspects it approve it.Chuck P.

WHITE SUPREMASISTS ARE WELCOMED HERE. ZERO STARS ZERO ZERO ZERO
Garbage. I had to gaurd my room against the owner or the maid to just barge in when they please. Had to leave someone in the room 24 hrs until we left. The owner barged into my room unnanounced with zero situational awarness that in any scenario this is a terrible idea and would turn out bad. How do you rent your condo and find it remotley acceptable to come in unannounced to finish personal business on my time. Well this owner did.I would have happily accomidated or rejected that request because its MY TIME THAT I PAID FOR MY FAMILY TO ENJOY. Its that simple and the owner took it upon herself to come in while we were gone. It was so easy to just come in unannounced, leading me to believe that the owner does this everytime. How did she know we were gone?? Are there cameras in here?? All questions and mental gymnastics that can be avoided if you dont stay in this garbage condo. The pool had other surprises.. Like its ok to have nazi tatoos and other white supremisist tatoos ALL OVER YOUR BODY and have the security gaurd walk by and welcome them into the pool and by the same token be very strict on the yellow pool bands.. Nazi tattoos..ok dont have your yellow pool braclet?... Go get it right now and stay out the pool until you come down with it. Any way this is cut its still with the owner barging in and maids coming in 2 hrs early to get you out.. And the white supremacist and family in the pool.. My experience here is that it is the worst expirence that me or my family has ever had on any vacation ever. It's says one star on the review but it's really absolutely ZERO.George G.
