The Bad

While several guests were pleased with the hotel's proximity to restaurants and the beach, a few lodgers had complaints.

Guest Recommendations
"We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and we had plenty of room for everyone. Having the kitchen was wonderful. We did all of our cooking in and that helped keep the cost of our vacation down. Also having a washer and dryer in the room was so convienent. We had a total of 8 people in the villa and you can go through alot of towels. Having the washer and dryer gave us the pleasure of fresh new towels everyday. Plus you dont have to come home with dirty laundry after a week of vacation to do. We had a great time. The lazy river was so nice and relaxing. Plus the porch is screened in so you dont have to worry about bugs. We will definitly stay there again."

"This is a timeshare and there was no daily housekeeping."
Jessica from Carmel, NY US rated Harbour Lights Resort 9 out of 10 on June 14, 2006
"No maid service. Have to clean own room prior to checkout or another fee is added. They do not tell you this on check in. Thank goodness I read the fine print and cleaned mine. Parking was horrible. Not enough spaces. Staff threatened to call a wreck for my car and I had a parking pass and was legally parked. Bed was too hard. Everything was clean except the bathroom floor. Noise was so loud the first night that I called security 3 times. They never corrected the problem. For the price I should not have to clean your own room, and not be billed more on checkout."
