We just spent the week of Sept. 7, 2008 there in a two bedroom for 8/6. It was in the Fountain Palm building, Unit #777. The unit was very clean, furnishings were in good repair. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need for preparing a meal as well as dishwasher soap, paper towels etc. The firidge had an icemaker that worked very well. There was a full size electric range. There was a large microwave, the turntable was there but did not work. There was also a toaster, blender and coffee maker and teapot. All were very clean, but were older and starting shows signs of wear & tear. The dining table was in a corner, it had a circular bench seat around the back side with two chairs on the other side. I would say it could sit 6 in total. The table was a large round wood table.
The living room had a sofa that made into a bed, loveseat and two chairs that went with the dining room table, but not sure whre they would have fit. There was a decent size tv in a free standing wall unit, it also had a dvd player and a nice cd player. Large coffee table, two end tables with lamps and a ceiling fan. The unit had a small balcony with two chairs and a tiny plastic table. It had a railing but is not screened so be careful if your kids are small and out on it. We were on the 7th floor and on one side of the builing was a good sized pool with kids pool and hot tub, our balcony looked out to another smaller pool and hot tub. The building there was in the process of being renovated.
The master bedroom had a king size bed, same tv as the living room, which sat on the dresser. There was the largest safe I have ever seen in a condo in the closet, free for guest to use. There was plenty of storage as there was a closet in the master bedroom, living room and the master bathroom had a stack washer & dryer. Soap was included. There was also another closet in the bathroom, where ther was a large jacuzzi tub. The shower was freestanding with glass doors, with double sinks. The toilet was in a room by itself. All was very clean. The 2nd bedroom had two double beds, a smaller tv, dresser, chair and closet. The 2nd bathroom is off the dining area, it is a full bath with tub/shower toilet and sink. There was ample pillows and blankets. We did not use the 2nd bedroom but the bed in the master was very comfortable. There was also lots of towels in both bathrooms, plus large towels for the jacuzzi tub or pools.
There was also a small playground for little kids, tennis courts and there was a golf course behind the reort as well. They also had a small bar and sandwich shop. We did not use either so can't comment on the prices or what they offered. We would definately stay here again if we needed to be in the area. The grounds and pool areas were well maintained as were all the common areas we saw. People were constantly cleaning and doing grounds work. We did not see a bug or ant anywhere and trust me I am one of those people who look as I hate both.
Since the only unit we saw was ours, I can't say what the others were like or the other buildings. But our unit was very good. The only thing that we found lacking was good restaurants in the area, but your not very far away from many areas that have great food. The casino/harness track is also just across the street if your into gambling. The only other thing is that there was no midweek maid service. I think if you want service you can let the front desk know and they will do it for a fee. We did not need it as there was just the two of us. There is a garbage shute on each floor. There was wo elevators which were pretty fast, we never had to wait for one of them more than a minute or two. They also offered a few daily activities, but we did not go to any of them. We saw lots of familes with small kids, and adults of various ages so it appeared to be a goood family resort.
Hope this info helps. I would be happy to answer any other question if I can.
