Our immediate reaction when walking into the condo was 'wow--this place is huge'! We were only a family of 4 so this was great to not feel totally on top of one another all week. We have stayed at beach condos several times and for the cost this was spacious compared to others. There was no DVD player in the Living Room and since we got some rain we were looking for one. No one plays VCR movies anymore :). We did find one in the bedroom but not the family area.
The only issue with the condo was a broken ice maker on the door and the cleaning crew took a lot longer than we expected to have the keys ready that first day. When we arrived to the room the linens were in bags on the bed for us to make our own beds. We wondered what took them so long. We also are used to most condos providing a stater roll of toilet paper and other start up items until you get to the store. That was not the case.
We looked up Kingston Plantation and we booked there because of the listed activity schedule of family events. Each time we went to these, they were canceled. That was a little disappointing. The music and activity at the Embassy Pool was good. We also were expecting wrist bands to access other pools and other renters seemed to have these but we did not. No one seemed to check for wrist bands so we went whereever we chose to.
The beach was busy but not overally crowded. The life guards on the beach seemed to be exceptionally attentive which was great too.
Apache Pier nearby is great-- you can sit on your condo patio and listen to the music every night or take a short walk to the band, arcade and restaurant.
Very good experience overall!
The condo itself was very clean and roomy but a bit outdated (had too many trinkets and knick knacks). The location was great with convenient access to a grocery store, the beach, and a pier within walking distance that had live music every night (and was kid friendly). The only downside was we were not able to use any other pool except for the one that was located at our particular condo. We had 10 people (6 adults and 4 kids) and there was plenty of room for us. Would recommend this condo.
We had a great time at Kingston Plantation Brighton Towers. The condo was super clean and the maid service was outstanding. The pools were great and not too crowded. We had a wonderful time and will be back!

The pictures of the place dont due it justice. Granted the decor is a little old fashinoed but the place is spacious and clean. Everyone enjoyed it and complimented me on finding it.
