Our family vacation had all ages, 50+, 20's, 30's and a 3 year old! With Pier Park being almost across the street, all of us had plenty to do! The beach was beautiful & clean. The property was clean & comfortable. The only downside was check-in. There were probably 100 family's moving their belongings from cars to condo's at the same time. Luggage racks were hard to come by and there were long elevator wait times. After that initial gridlock, everything was fine. I'd suggest you carry a bag with swimwear or go shopping and wait until the 'rush' is over to unload your car. Overall, our family voted this one of our best vacations ever!
Location was everything...close to nightlife...kid friendly!

Said we had 2 chairs on beach with unit when I rented...found out this wasn't true. Place needs new cooking utensils (pots and pans were in bad condition). More towels for showering would have helped-much washing to do on vacation. Would be nice to have grills on property for dinners in. Friends we were with hoped for a hot tub (for the cool nights and sore muscles). Would also have been nice to have small dish soap and soft soap in kitchen and bathrooms to start with. Great location next to Pier park and pier for fishing. Kids had plenty of things to do being so close to entertainment site (Pier Park) and adults had Tootsies (great bands and great fun). Many good eating establishments close by as well. Only problem was elevators weren't working a couple of the days and we had to walk to and from the 20th floor-not good!!! Overall though, would rent from this place again and recommend the same to friends.
We had a wonderful stay in 2008W at the Calypso. Best Beach Get Away and the Calypso staff were very helpful any question or request was responded to very promptly. This was our third year at the Calypso and with Best Beach, the unit was the best supplied unit we have ever had. Looking forward to 2014 in Unit 2008W, we are scheduled for a little longer stay stay. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

The room was great. The pool was a bit dirty and the beaches needed cleaned. The people selling the umbrella chairs sucked. They let people take our chairs, and they rarely put the cushions and umbrella out. I think they were stoned and I know they were lazy. I do not think I will stay there again.
The condo was very dirty and in terrible condition. Our bed sheets had not been changed from the prior guests, we found food on the floor that looked like it had been there for weeks if not longer. The floors were dirty, you could see touch up paint all over the walls, just not in good condition. The furniture was oversized and did not fit the condo leaving very little room to move around in the living room, dining room and second bed room. This was the 4th time for us to stay at Calypso and the worst experience of all 4 trips

The first unit we were in (1204E) had sand in the bed, the bedding was not comfortable, the toilets ran constantly and the tv remotes didn't work. We moved to unit 2008W which was like moving to the Ritz. It was very pleasantly decorated, and the bed was better than ours at home. The only problem we had with this unit was the door lock. Since we didn't rent through the on-site property managers our communication was with the staff at BBG. They did everything to address the issues that we had so we have no complaint about that at all.

The condo was exactly as advertised and that was great. The thing I liked that I have never has at any other condo was the combination locks not having to keep up with a key or having to go by an office and check to get a key was great!!!!

What do you do at the beach when it is cold? Walk! The Calypso's location made it the perfect getaway for a cold Valentine's Weekend. Walk on the beach...walk to the pier...walk to Pier Park and the many fine restaurants. The condo was lovely with awesome views, and it was a great place to come back to after a pleasant walk.
