St Augustine Beach, St Augustine Reviews - Write a Review

  • This place is fantastic! The top feature is that it is OCEANFRONT! The resort has 2 pools and 5 Jacuzzis. The staff are extremely nice and proficient. The clubhouse and grounds are newly renovated. We have been here multiple years in a row and hope to keep coming back.

  • One of the best locations. Great beaches, Tennis, 5 hot tubs. 2 pools.

  • The owner of our condo was nothing but wonderful. The staff was friendly and accommodating until we had an issue. Our family just returned from the beach and were changing clothes when a maintenance man came in the condo with his own key. Mind you our entire family was dressing and in a very uncomfortable situation. We told office staff about it and there answer was to use the chain on the door because a sign was posted on guard shack.

  • The ad stated this sleeps 5, there is a queen bed in the master and a full twin bunk bed. The 5th person has a small love seat that one side rolls out to a small lounge. A small child might be comfortable but not older children. The dolphin coffee table has a big chunk missing out if the floor stand that can be a hazard for cuts. Also, this particular unit, 1107, is ocean front not ocean view. These condos are not accommodated with much as far as kitchen requirements are concerned. Left us a bottle of alcohol but no can opener? First day there we had to call maintenance to ask for light bulbs. Apparently the cleaning staff is to let them know if things need updated. Upon check in, the staff wasn't the friendliest either. Not welcome to St. Augustine Ocean and Racquet. It was "checking in?"
