Seascape - the Good and the Bad May 23, 2010
This is a timeshare resort, but it also rents units. They are not the best resort I’ve walked into, some have been spectacular with wide screen TVs and huge master bedroom Jacuzzi’s for 4 people and magnificent showers and up to 12 pools with slides and lazy rivers. This one was not spectacular, but very comfortable. My unit had a Queen bed and TV in master bedroom with master bath – the tub was a step in tub/shower and I’ve been spoiled by walk in showers! The 2nd bedroom was two twin beds and no TV. There was a Murphy bed in the living room, I found that interesting and unique, most places have a sofa bed and most sofa beds are uncomfortable with thin mattresses, the Murphy bed had a full, thick mattress and would have been comfortable. The living room also had a TV (not large screen, not HD) the 2nd bath also had a step in tub/shower. They had a nice kitchen set up and a balcony area to watch the golfers. If you book a unit; make sure you book an ODD number – they are first floor units, the EVEN numbers are upstairs and there is no elevator. Parking is allotted for two cars. . I cannot rave enough about their water aerobics instructor. She gave us instructions and then threw back her head and sang beautifully – her face reflected how much she loved singing. Songs like “some enchanted evening” “Bali Hai” “you are my sunshine” “Popeye the sailor man” and on - not entire songs – just parts of them. I have never before had such a wonderful workout and felt so stress free! Do NOT miss an opportunity to do it M-F 10-11am. Also, don’t miss out on the Jacuzzi beside the indoor pool. They also have a rec room with computer email access (free), games to borrow, a gym. Outside they have tennis courts, shuffle board and mini golf – all free and one heated outdoor pool as well as one not heated. Of course, there is also the Golf – I’m sure they charge the normal fees for that.

SAFETY & SECURITY: I always travel with my own door stop for prevention of unauthorized access. I note the illusion of safety is fostered in these units and for the unobservant it might be enough to make them feel safe, although it would not be able to keep them safe. Neither the front door that opens to the living room/kitchen nor the balcony door that enters to the master bedroom employ deadbolts or any bolt device that would stall or prevent an unauthorized entrance. The illusion of the front door is a sliding bolt at eye level that does with difficult manipulation barely engages the mismatched bolt hole by ¼ inch. This bolt would easily break away with any force, as would the doorknob key entry. The bolt for the front doorknob key entry slides into a larger than required bolt hole chiseled out, by the looks of it, with a screwdriver and the bolt hole cover plate is skewed cockeyed and screws are loose, no attempt at firmly seating either the screws or bolt hole bracket. There is a matching set of new vinyl glass sliding doors that enter the balcony from the living room. The sliding doors also give the illusion of being locked, when one moves the locking lever one might assume by the change in position of the lever that the doors would be locked. The lever latches do NOT lock the doors, the locking mechanisms are incorrectly aligned and it was impossible for me to engage the locks on either sliding door. The resort has provided wood strips that can be placed within the bottom tracks of the doors, but the wood strips are a tad too long to fully seat in the tracks. With ½ inch shorter strips they could be fully seated in the track, not angled up from the track, it would be more effective and still be easily removed by guests.
