“annual labor day vacation”
Absolutely loved everything about this place and as usual, management/personnel at Port A Escapes were top notch.
“Not what it used to be”
First let me say that we stayed at this same property a year ago and were not only very pleased, but gave a glowing review. We liked it so much that we brought our family back this summer. What a disappointment! The office staff, though we only dealt with them by phone, were consistently rude and only begrudgingly helpful. The condo was dusty, but clean (excepting the kitchen counter tops that were still caked in Comet), but there were a myriad of other small issues, which all detracted from the experience. One of the toilets was broken, there was no broom head on the broom stick, there was no iron or ironing bored, though there were extra pillows there were no pillow cases for them, they gave us 1/2 a roll of paper towels for the week, 2 half rolls of toilet paper plus one extra (for 4 people for a week), the couch is stained and the cushions are shot, the master bed mattress is enough to put an adult in traction, they still haven't addressed the too shear window coverings that so many people mention in their comments, the smoke detector in the hall is missing, the list of minor things goes on and on, nothing major on its own but in totality, not worth the money we spent on the place. Unless the owner and the management company are willing to reinvest some of their profits, the property will continue to decline. Such a disappointment!
“Living in Port A”
This was a very nice condo & decorated with some very tropical decorations! My kids loved their room and were very happy to have their own TV with some of their favorite shows. I was home away from home. The only suggestion I have would be to replace the cushions on the living area couch. They were flattened out and stained. We also didn't have a good connection for our cell phones and wi-fi was not available. Other than those 3 things, everything was great. This place was very cozy and the private pool around the corner was great versus the crowded main pool. Would pick this condo again!
“Nice place, great visit.”
Everything was clean and the appliances were in good working order. Decor was fine and beds were comfy. My six year old loved the pools and playground at the complex. I would definitely stay here again.
“New Hampton Inn ruins Pirates Bay”
Recommend the owner shutter the 2nd bedroom window, as neighbors have done, from the outside due to the recent opening of the Hampton Inn with its all-night parking lot flood lights. It was as bright as daylight in the room and my daughter could not sleep so we had to buy some aluminum foil and masking tape to black out the window. Otherwise a great property and great condo.
“1st time in Port A”
This is a great property if you have kids. The pool and playground were an A+ for our son. The beach access was close and easy to find. The condo was clean, roomy, and nicely decorated. The only very minor issues were that the TV in the master didn't work (management did send someone to look at it but he was not able to get it working) and the window coverings in the 2nd bedroom did not block much light out (lights from parking area are very bright at night.) These small issues would not deter us from staying here again.
“Need a tad more updating.”
Don’t get me wrong, because this was really a great place. It did seem that the owner may have cut some corners. This was the third time we stayed at Pirates Bay and this was the worse out of the three. The unit was very clean and the setup was great, but the TVs were very small, the couch was a little uncomfortable, the beds weren’t the softest, had issues with the porch light coming on, and there was no extra toilet paper or paper towels. To make maters worse, the A/C went out late Friday night. I know the property owner had nothing to do with this, but it seemly added itself to the list of issues. The other two units we stayed at Pirates Bay excelled in all areas. If I have a choice next time, we will not be staying in the particular unit. The management is great from Port-A-Escapes and will do all they can do to make the visit the best yet. This even means getting an A/C repairman to fix the broken A/C at 1:30 in the morning. Although this was not the quality we have come to expect, we look forward in staying once more in the future at Pirates Bay.
“Last Minute Escape”
A couple of friends invited me on a last minute trip to Port A for the Beach to Bay marathon. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find any reasonable accomodations, but was extremely satisfied with the Pirate's Bay property. The entire reservation process was seamless and went off without a hitch. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for accomodations in Port A and look forward to my next visit.
We absolutely loved The Cottages at Pirates Bay. When looking on line at different places to stay, the tropical look of the cottages and pool were very attractive to me and the pictures really didn't do it justice. This is a beautiful place and only a few minutes from all the action (beach, restaurants, shops and bars). We were running a few minutes late upon arrival and the personnel at Port A Escapes were very accommodating. We are already planning our next trip. Thanks Port A Escapes and Pirates Bay for a great girl's weekend!
The rental was great the only reason we are renting there again is there is no windows facing to the outside and I go down there for the sunshine.
