Rated 5 out of 5 by Shirley5645 Vistana Beach Club Is Built Into Our Hearts
From the moment we pull in the driveway the special treatment starts. Ariel (or John) lean out of the garage with wide smiles and open arms. The luggage cart is at their side and being loaded up as soon as the door opens. We spin around and the reception desk has come alive, shaking hands, giving cheery HELLO'S , all the time they have your paperwork ready, signed and have put the key in your hand....Their parting words."IF YOU NEED ANYTHING JUST CALL ON US". (Thank you Dennis, Felicious, Elenna, Sharon)
The well kept property stands out, in the beautiful color of the pool,and the sparkling ocean. When you open the unit door, you see all the way through to a closer ocean view "YOURS" for a week or two.
Your luggage is right with you and being set in the appropriate room. "BREATH', YOUR ALMOST RELAXING NEAR THAT BEAUTIFUL WATER...
The activities are so plentiful. From the opening gathering Monday morning that gives you an idea what is available to you until to the last day of your stay great you'll build wonderful memories.
Let me not leave out the Wine and Cheese Party on Tuesday Evening. That is a blast, but it also gets you acquainted with the other folks staying on property. Maybe someone from your town or the next town, it has happened...or other folks from your state, or if your like me, reaquainted with friends you've made from previous years of staying at this "Crown of a Resort". Barry and Mella work hard at making the most out of your vacation.
Speaking of which, much of their time is running, interesting games and crafts, the beauty of which you.ve never seen at a timeshare. If you have children they will teach them to do anything in the crafts and sportsmanship area. The new outside covered deck with 2 ping pong tables and 2 new pool tables, the open feeling complete with the comfort of a huge outdoor furniture area, and even an outdoor grill and 2 picnic tables , is an incredible family or big group area. I don't come in the summertime but I can see the great advantages. Especially as it is next to the pool.
Do You think I had a good time? You bet I did. Today I went to the New Elliot Museum. It is wonderful! The Bicycle Boys from Detroit, with a need for speed developed the wheel which Mr Elliott actually invented...Once the wheel was invented everyone's lifestyle changed FOREVER. Just seeing how they move these beautiful cars out for you to see is beyond belief. Come see how it all started and what it is today. Upstairs is all about Florida. I have to go back to see that .
Like Manatees and Dolphin, your in for a treat. It's all around you. Trips to the estuary, a 30 minute trip to the manatee retreat in Ft Pierce. A trip with Captain Anne right into the estuary. A cruise with Captain Bob to Jupiter. Fishing from the beach, paddle boarding ocean front . Yea
it's all fun you can have right at your fingertips staying at Vistana Beach Club.
I could got on to all the shopping and dining,But I'll just say their excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by IMissVistanaResort Not What I Expected
Sadly I was surprised to find that even with the lovely location, this property lacked anything to applaud about.The front desk staff were lovely and so was the activities coordinator.But the room wasn't amazing. The housekeeping staff could use some retraining. The "refuge" room should be relocated because having a large roach run towards you isn't enjoyable.Ash trays next to signage in the room reminding you not to smoke send mixed messages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Floridasmile Love this place.
I really love coming here. I am a Starwood owner in Orlando and don't visit Disney much anymore. So if course being right on the beach and less than an hour from where I live. I was quite surprised how much I fell I. Love with this resort. I have 2 reservations. Book for this year already. Jensen beach is a great resort town

Rated 2 out of 5 by Julia50 Disappointed but the ocean view was great!
Not the best resort Starwood has to offer. No food services, staff needs to be more professional & thorough with room cleanliness. Overall the experience was ok but I wouldn't return anytime soon unless I want an ocean view.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Minilini Not Up to SPG Standards
This is clearly not one of the better SPG properties! It was fine for a one night stay with a beautiful ocean view, but we did not feel as if we were in a Starwood resort hotel. It is quite dated, the water pressure in the shower was very low and offered few amenities. The staff was very pleasant but, again, not up to Starwood standards.

From the moment we checked in, the staff could not have been nicer! Everyone was smiling and always ready to help in any way they could. The complimentary wine and cheese party was great and it provided a way to meet other guests at the facility. All they would need to do to make this resort perfect would be to add a small workout room with a treadmill or two. But overall, it was a great and relaxing vacation and I highly recommend the Vistana Beach Club.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Larry339 Vistana's Beach Club has really gone down hill
We have stayed at the Vistana Beach Club many times before and have always looked forward to the next trip. This time we were extremely disappointed. The condo was not clean. The glasses and dishes were covered with a "film" so we had to wash everything before we could use them. There were numerous signs of deferred maintenance. The sofa was excruciatingly uncomfortable and the bed wasn't much better. To say that we were disappointed is an understatement.
