“Where di my cleaning fee go?!?!?”
First impression walking in... stained carpets. For the rest of the weekend we found stained blankets, moldy shower, door handles falling apart, broken door on the washing machine closet, filthy coffee pot, doors that won't stay shut, LOUD ceiling fans and so on.... Luckily we were spending our days at a family's house on the beach and didn't spend much time in the unit.
Response from the manager Your comments regarding your recent stay at Grand Caribbean East #304 are greatly appreciated. Were it not for conscientious travelers as yourselves, some of these non-pleasantries would not be brought to our attention. Since your visit, we have changed housekeepers, laundered all bedding professionally, deep-cleaned the unit and had the carpets shampooed. Thank you for your feedback. We do wish, however, that we had known of any discomfort or inconvenience to you within the duration of your stay so that issues may have been addressed promptly. For your convenience we do have a 24 hour Customer Service phone number listed on your confirmation email and in the unit. We hope you will keep us in mind for future beach vacations. There is a broad variety of properties to choose from and our reservationists are experts at providing for your needs and preferences. Thank you again. We look forward to having you as our guest in the future. Sincerely, Harriet Nix
“Great Memorial Day Weekend”
Went during Memorial Day weekend 2013 and had a great time. The property is a 1min walk across the street from beach entry points and a few minutes drive from all the stores you would need (Publix, Marshall's, etc). The interior was better than expected. Everything was clean, well kept and very homely. I will be back.
“First Beach Getaway!!!”
Jennifer was excellent (customer service). The condo was very nice this was a different change, we are use to total seclusion in the mountain cabins. The location of this condo is very nice for first beach getaway. The third floor balcony nice touch eating breakfast,dinner, sitting and sleeping very relaxing listening to the ocean at night . The view of the beach was great. The least what was liked about the condo,the noisy and wobbly ceiling fan in the living room. The ignorance and disrespect of a young lady on the first floor yelling, cussing , screaming and butt naked trying to jump over the gate after hours for hot tub and pool entrance.( rude) However, this did not ruin our vacation we are use to ignorant and disrespectful people whom are obviously not accustom to this type of environment. This was not spring break!!! Thanks, Lamar/Deborah Cherry
Service was excellent upon check-in. Very helpful. Our home was very comfortable, with everything in it, however the dryer really needs to be taken apart as it squealed loudy, everytime it was used,and was very annoying. Location is great, very easy to get around, close to the beach, and shopping, etc. Great view of the Gulf from our Balcony, which we enjoyed. We liked everything you had to offer, could use a more comfortable couch and chair to sit it in, the living room, outside of that the Unit is very well equipped, and lots of furniture for the balcony. There is a white balcony chair that needs to be replaced as it was broken in places and someone could cut themselves. Outside of this we really enjoyed our stay, and the Unit. Perfect Location.
“Cb Condo # 304”
We have stayed at Carribean Dunes at least 7 times over the years. Great location, great rate. # 304 was little bit of a let down compared to previous stays. There was a water leak in the bathtub, and the kitchen was not as "stocked" as other places we have stayed. Just a few pots and pans. The icemaker was not working and no wine opener! :-) Other than that great place, just needs a little "polishing" and it will be just like the other condos. O yea the dryer seems to be dying!
“clean but needs a little overhaul”
found unit to be nice and clean but somewhat run down and worn out. needs updating in decor and furniture. first time to destin area, cannot compare to others in area. if you have a book or brochure of your different accomedations please send it to me. Ie: photos, ratings and floor plans of your units that you manage. could use elevator if on 3rd floor.
This was our first time visiting Destin and we feel in love with the place. The condo was awesome and our kids loved the bunk beds. We only have two complaints from our stay and that is the first day we arrived to the condo we had tiny ants on the counter, but we called management and they had someone come spray the next day and we never saw another ant after that. The other complaint being that someone went to the bathroom in the hot tub and tracked it into the pool, so the pool was closed the third day we were there but re-opened the next day. We will defintely use one of your rentals again!
“Grand Caribbean East #304”
First I would like to thank the staff at Dale E Peterson for being such a pleasure to deal with.I talked with Ashley from DEP and she was very professional and helpful.She let us go and look at the properties that we were wanting to stay at,so that we could make up our mind which one to stay in.This condo rental was very affordable and was a very nice unit.We very much enjoyed our stay there and will be staying there again in the future.The only bad experience that we had in the unit was the shower head was not very clean and the shower controls were backwards,other than that it was a very nice unit.The location was great as we were directly across from the beach and were within 5 to 10 minutes of just about every restaurant and shopping mall.I give the staff at DEP 5 stars and also would definitely recommend using them to book your next vacation.Thank you very much for making our weekend in Destin such a pleasurable stay.Sincerely,Michael Brown
“Great location, but condo needs new mattresses before would reco”
It was a pleasure doing business with Dale Peterson Vacations. The staff was very accomodating and pleasant. I would not rent Unit #304 at Grand Caribbean East again, however. The facility was adequate, but the mattresses on all the beds need severely replaced. My 11 year old son (who weighs 75 lbs) tried to sleep on the pull on couch, the mattress was so thin that the coils from the couch protruded through the mattress. We tried the bunk bed and it was not any better. The mattress was so thin that you could feel the wood board under the mattress. Thank goodness we took our own pillows, because all the pillows were so flat, they were virtually useless. While the facility was across the street from the ocean, we still had a nice view. The pool was small, but adequate. It was a very short walk across the street to the beach with a nice cross walk for added safety crossing. This could be a wonderful condo to rent if the homeowners would invest in some updates and definately new mattresses and pillows!! If you rent this condo, DO NOT plan on getting a comfortable nights sleep!
Great place to stay. Right across the street from the beach. Very clean and the rooms were larger than expected. We stayed on the third floor due to a past bad experience staying elsewhere. Glad we did because we had no feet thumping above us. The only complaint is that I had to fix/unclog the garbage disposal twice (wish I could have back charged a plumbers rate). Other than that, the ammenities were great. Wish they would have had a small work out room with weights though. My complaints are minor annoyances and I would definitely stay there again.
