“18CU Purple Parrot”
We arrived about an hour early for check-in, filled out our paperwork, and returned to the resort around 4:30 to pick up our keys and pool passes. When we entered our unit, 18CU, we were completely shocked to find that the unit had not only not been cleaned, but it was filthy. The office sent a cleaning crew immediately, but our first day was pretty much ruined because it was so late by the time they were through. In addition, the fridge was dripping rust on the outside so we were unable to let my infant niece near the kitchen. The unit was well-stocked otherwise and the stay was okay. However, we will not be returning to the Purple Parrot having had such a terrible first experience. Very disappointing.
Response from the manager Thanks for leaving us your feedback. I apologize the condo wasn't ready when you arrived. The housekeeping works very hard to have all of the condo ready by 4pm, but occasionally it does take them a little longer on days when we have a high number of same day check-in's and out's. In this instance, rather than the condo being ready by 4pm it was ready by 5pm, but I hope you enjoyed using the pools and being out to dinner while they were finishing up the condo. I checked the refrigerator and it is not a safety issue. There was a stain from a past issue, but it has since been fixed. Glad the condo was stocked well, but sorry the hour delay was so terrible and may prevent you from coming back. We do try very hard to keep all of our guests happy. JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“Wonderful Cottage -- Unless it rains 17 inches!!!”
We loved 18C and Purple Parade. The location near the pristine beaches and glassy green water of Johnson Beach were perfect. And what a deal ... $8 pass for a week. We went to the beach with lifeguards and those without. We loved it. We had a couple of small glitchesn with the condo, mainly trying to use the ice maker... but the decore and extras provided were great. The giant was great, but suggest you leave instructions on how to use the shower. the most features were above great! Leda at the management got us into the place with only a few hours notice. Only negative was when we faced the record breaking rain on the morning we were leaving. They knew next to nothing about the evacation or driving dangers. Waiting 4 hours for the rain to slow so we could load our car... water was over the second step and pouring our of the sky like an open faucet
We were very comfortable! The place looks great... The staff were very helpful. The tiki bar wasnt open, joyfully next time we can experience that! Definitely recommend
“Cozy and Comfortable”
I recently stayed at Purple Parrot with a group of girls for my sister's bachelorette party. We rented the one bedroom, one bath with a fold out couch bed. I was very impressed upon walking in but noticed it was hot (the staff keeps the air off when it isn't occupied). Later we realized the place still wasn't cooling and didn't know who to call. We did notice that other units had a heating/cooling repair van outside. Luckily the weather was nice enough, and we were in an upstairs unit, so we just opened the windows and let the beach breeze blow in. The couch bed was extremely uncomfortable. We also didn't notice that in renting the condo we would be charged with an extra $224. The $300 they charge upon booking is for rental only. It ended up being about $524 for a four night stay, which still isn't bad. Overall, our stay was nice and I would definately stay again.
“We so surprised how awesome it was...”
We are a family of four and it was the perfect size for us. Much nicer than a hotel. The spot in the back was so quiet and relaxing. Both pools were nice, the staff super helpful. We will definitely be coming back.
Response from the manager Thanks for the great feedback and kind words! Please let me know what we can do to make the next stay a 5-star one. Kindest regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
Service: we arrived on Sunday having received instrux that the key would be under the doormat; it wasn't! Phoned cell on letter, and gentleman arrived within 20 minutes. Amazingly, no word of apology. The first words out of his mouth should have been, I'm sorry for the inconvenience, Mr. and Mrs. Ryan. Condo: Nice but a bit run down: carpet, fridge rusty, icemaker busted, sofa. The living room is configured badly for watching TV. You need to move the furniture so as not to look sideways. Amenities: didn't use Location: wonderful!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Our office is closed on Sundays, but we do have a staff member setuping the arrivals on Sunday afternoons. On this day, I was helping that person working to setup the Sunday arrivals. Even on Sundays check-in is still after 4pm as we need ample time to clean the condo following the departure from 10am that morning, so if a guest arrives before then as in this instance the key may not yet be under the mat. Upon arrival the first thing which I said was welcome to the Purple Parrot and let me see if I can go ahead and get you in the condo a little early. Had I realized that the guest was waiting for 20 minutes I certainly would have apologized for the wait. Additionally, had I realized that the guest was going to be arriving early we certainly would have worked prepared the condo sooner. If you might be arriving early, please touch base with the office beforehand so that we may check to see if the condo will be ready early. We want your experience to be a good one from start to finish and would like to be a resource to help plan your vacation from arrival time through departure. Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“It was relaxing and active at the right times.”
The Purple Parrot is in an excellent location and the cottages are a perfect set up. It's great for doing stuff, including R&R.; However, my condo, 18CU, looked a bit worned, the frig was rusted, and light bulbs were out in the BR and bath.
“Great condo, nice pool area.”
It was a really nice place to stay. We enjoyed our condo and relaxing by the pool. Also, the bands were good. the only complaint I would have is that parking got kind of tight two different nights that we were there. Otherwise, a great vacation!
Response from the manager Thanks for the great review and feedback. July does bring a full-house for us at the resort, so parking is a bit tighter. Glad you enjoyed your stay nonetheless and hope to see you again soon! Kindest regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“It was a true resort feel.”
Purple parrot was a great place to stay. It was very relaxing the the staff were very kind and friendly. It looked and felt like a true resort. Great Stay
Response from the manager Thanks for the great review and feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the resort and we hope to see you again soon! Remember on August 20th, 2011 the rates go down to our fall season and they drop again at the end of October. Perfect for an affordable weekend escape. Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager
“Very quiet and close to the beach”
More BBQ pits would be nice and insect control around it. I had to spray down good before I started to cook. Otherwise, it was very nice, especially the staff.
