We loved staying at the Royal Mansions in 2013. Their ocean view and access make made our return over the holiday season a no-brainer. We decided to go for one of the six ocean facing two bedroom units, the resort's biggest units and best views. Room 2302 had an amazing view of the ocean from the 3rd and 4th floors as advertised. But what photos don't show were the worn-out, inoperable mechanical functions. A/C blower out (frozen coils and no air movement), had a 5 gallon bucket below it to catch meltwater, we had to empty twice. The kitchen stove was original 1980's equipment, with two inoperable burners and an oven with no thermostat control (broils everything). Worn out TV remote was a minor issue, but obviously been useless for quite some time, a universal remote would be an easy fix. Toilet flapper leaking/running all the time also another "no maintenance" item. Bedding also felt like the original, 28 year old fabrics. We came for the view, and understand they won't be able to move us to one of the other five remaining ocean front views during our one week stay. And pulling an AC blower and replacing a stove can only be done during a planned vacancy. So we chose to suck it up. Telling the management would have only raised stress levels and would have done nothing to remedy the major issues. As one reviewer commented on this same unit three years ago, it's like "room roulette". Some units are amazing, some (at least this one) are not.
