Beautiful views from balcony but so so on accommodations
Owner was very friendly, but the Accommodations are VERY outdated! You sink into the sofa and chair. Very uncomfortable. Queen size mattress is very cheap and crunchy (reminds me of a youth mattress). Sheets, pillowcases are very dated. Kitchenette is pretty well stocked. Needs new cookware (only skillet doesn’t have a handle). No beach towels and limited beach chairs (no cooler). BUT the shower is awesome. Dark but very powerful. We’ve stayed in other condos at the Apollo, but this one, unfortunately, was sub-par.
Really disappointed in the Apollo. We’ve stayed there in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it. This year was under newer management and was not impressed. Not very friendly or personable. We were also told No alcoholic beverages from either Sunset Grille or BYOB (even in plastic cups) at the pool ... In the manager’s words, if you violate rules, you are Trespassing. We’re not even big drinkers, retirement age, and far from our partying days ... but we were on vacation and thought that “policy” was pretty strict. Just didn’t get a good vibe from the staff at all. In the future, we won’t be staying at The Apollo. Too many other options along the beach.
Perfect Ocean view from the balcony!
We definitely enjoyed our time at the Apollo condo's and had a fantastic time at the beach. Marco Island is very classy and a wonderful place to visit. Our only complaint was the key system in the condo. You have to use a metal key to unlock the elevators, to get into the building, to get to the pool are, to the gym, etc. It is very cumbersome and annoying when you're carrying all your beach stuff. If the condo could switch over to key fobs it would be immensely better than the old-fashioned keys. Also, there's a restaurant under the condo so a lot of people going in and out from the public, but it didn't bother us at all. Overall, it was a great vacation and we will definitely come back again.
Unit is as pictured, with a nice view of the beach. Somewhat dated, could use a fresh coat of paint, but economical.
Great week at Joe's place
Condo is right on the beach and affords outstanding sunset views over the Gulf. We were concerned that there might be noise from the restaurant below the unit, but it wasn't an issue at all. Lots of beach activity right in front of the unit. Complex is older but well maintained. Could not have been happier. Joe lives nearby and makes sure that everything is in order. Great communications. We hope to be back.
Hi Dr. Eric & Coreen,
Thank you so much for your kind words regarding our beautiful property!
You make our day when you enjoy our "Paradise".
Please stop back soon!
Amazing view on a beautiful island
Apollo condominiums is a great location to stay on Marco Island. The lobby is very welcoming and management staff friendly and very helpful. It’s very close to the beach and only a 15 minute walk to a local square with a variety of restaurants. The apartment has a beautiful view of the beach and sea, often seeing dolphins swimming by at various points of the day. The apartment is in need of some redecoration and seemed as though it hadn’t been used for a while but it served our needs. We made use of local attractions and enjoyed the convenience of Sunset Grille, the bar/restaurant at the base of Apollo condos. They have friendly staff and a varied menu whilst enjoying the amazing sunset views.
Most relaxing vacation ever!
Although the building is older, it has everything you need for a great vacation. Close to the south end of Marco Island makes this a beautiful and quiet beach location. The condo unit offers beach chairs and plenty of towels. The owner of the condo was great to work with. Due to the red tide in the Ft Myers area (where we were originally planning to stay) we had to make last minute lodging changes. Joe worked with us in our time of distress and we will forever be grateful for his willingness to accommodate us.
Thank you so much for the nice words regarding our property. We take great pride in keeping it perfectly clean & updated & we enjoy having very fine Guests such as you!
The building is actually one of the newest on the beach, having opened in 1991.
Condo is centrally located within walking distance to many of Marcos
best restaurants, movies and shopping centers. Only 45 minutes from
FT. Myers SW Florida International Airport. Numerous wildlife areas,
including the magnificent Everglades are minutes away for wildlife
observation, fishing or just plain strolling through. Naples
philharmonic center and many other activities are a short drive away,
as well as quick access to Medical Hospitals and facilities should
there be a need and a health care center is located on Marco Island.
Our Beach is second to none in natural beauty, shelling and the
Sunsets are breathtaking. SUGGESTION: There are other listings for
condos in this building, but be sure to rent from an owner who takes
pride in the unit, lives nearby (not far out of state) and insures
the perfect cleanliness and up to date furnishings!
