We have stayed in several Villamare units. This one is comparable to most and we enjoyed our six weeks in this unit from Feb 26 thru April 8. For all but the last week, it was only my husband and I in the unit and we enjoyed the garden view (and ocean horizon view) from the main balcony. The second bedroom balcony overlooked the lagoon and fitness center below. The beds were comfortable. We cooked in except for a couple nights each week. The kitchen was well equipped with pans, skillets, and utensils. The dishware, however, was mismatched as was the silverware. A small issue, but one would expect matching dishes and full sets of silverware if paying the rental price and service fees charged. The unit had a full sized washer and dryer which were convenient. All three TVs worked well, and the keyless entry was nice so we didn’t have to keep track of keys. The elevator went out a couple times we were there but was fixed fairly quickly (within a couple hours). The hot tub did not work a couple evenings as well, but was usually fixed by the next day or so. The last week our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren joined us for their Spring Break. There was ample room for all of us. We enjoyed the beach, pool, riding bikes (we brought our own), putt-putt golf and shopping. There were free concerts at Shelter Cove the last two Thursday nights we were there. Great music and vendor booths with various options for food and drink. We have looked at other complexes to rent, but the beautiful grounds, close proximity to the beach, indoor and outdoor pool, covered parking for cars and bikes under the buildings, and on-site fitness center all keep us coming back to Villamare. About the bike parking though, several units furnish bikes (ours didn’t), so the bike racks were overflowing a couple weeks we were there as people were also renting bikes and others, like us, brought their own bikes. All in all an enjoyable stay.
