Bluebeard's Castle 06/10/2003
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
This property seems to receive criticism from time to time. This year, this is what we found while staying for 1 week at the castle.

Immediately noticed that many improvements have been made at the castle since last year such as:

1. Exterior newly painted
2. A new gardner must have been hired, property looked great and not somewhat overgrown as in previous years
3. Less-to-no pressure from the time share sellers (hard to believe, but true), in fact if i hadn't remembered someone from last year, we wouldn't have noticed them at all!
4. The complimentary rum punch recipe must have changed...much better this year!

I would like to note that it was previously stated in the user review section that there were problems with roadways being torn up, difficult check in, an oil spill laden driveway, rotting garbage, etc. I have been staying at this property for years and found no sign of any of these things when visiting (BTW, was there 5/24-31/2003). I will agree that there was one "not-so-nice" clerk at the main desk, but aren't we all grumpy from time to time? As far as reporting problems...after checking in we reported a problem with our sliding glass door not locking and it was fixed immediately. FYI - tours of the resort can also be arranged with the property manager for owners or anyone else.

The view from the castle is great as always. We were facing the cruise ship dock in the new Pirate's Pension section. Its amazing watching those huge ships enter and leave the harbor. Other rooms overlook town.

If you have any questions, please email me.
