“AWLFUL”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

Would not recommend if staying a week. Stayed in a 3 bedroom 3 bath penthouse. Bathrooms
were WAY TOO SMALL. Great for the master bedroom but not for the other 2 bedrooms. The plumbing was terrible. Had to hold the handle down for 2 to
3 minutes before working. Very OLD complex. The hall way were small, could not
move around to unload the luggage.

Parties going on next door at all hours of the night. This is not a family complex

The unit itself had room to move around in. Very small TV's - maybe a 17" in the
main living room. Run down place, can pay a little more and stay at a nice place like the
Lighthouse condo - highly recommend.


Walking distance - maybe have to walk a mile.
I would rate this complex maybe a class 2 or 3. It is NOT a class 5.
pleaseeee check around brefore staying here.

CHEAP PRICES FOR A CHEAP PLACE

Room Tip: please check out the Lighthouse or San Carlos, these are stars 5 resorts. will pay little more BUT...

Reviewed 23 October 2010

There were 8 of us that stayed in the 3 BR 3BA Penthouse at The Whaler. Location was great, just about a mile to the center of town. The condo had plenty of room for all of us with two balconies that overlooked the pool and beach. Everything you could want and more in the condo. The weather was perfect in mid-October. Had many great meals at the local restaurants - Lamberts and Original Oyster House were impressive.
