We have stayed at Summer Bay before back in 2004 and I had a great time. I thought it was truly a 5 star resort. Wow, things have changed!Our unit (which was 501) was infested by the biggest roaches I've seen. What in the heck are those things called down there? I killed two of them, then called maintenance. I don't really know what they did because it didn't solve the roach problem. On our patio, a wasp had made a nice nest. Obviously Summer Bay does not spray for wasps so be careful. It gets even better. A bat was camped out on the patio the first two nights we were there. Ok, I didn’t really mind the bat. He was a cutey and they eat tons of insects. I was actually sad to see him go.More? While you're sleeping at night, bunches of what looked to be Japanese Beetles would somehow get into the foyer that joins the room units. These little fellas would then proceed to lay there and die. To Summer Bays credit, they did sweep them up everyday while we were gone to the parks.Finally, there was something croaking in our bed room. Whatever it was would croak between the hours of 3 - 5 am. No, I'm not making any of this up. Unit 501, bottom floor on the end.. I don't know about the rest of Summer Bay but my unit was laughable. These were supposes to be the newest units so I was shocked. They are smaller in size when compared to where we stayed 4 years ago (300). Also, if you are put into the 500s, the pool isn't finished yet so you have a nice long walk to reach any of the others.The good things - The kids pool and the main pool are nice. I just had to drive over there because my little one is too small to make that walk. The main pool stays open 24 hours. - The grounds look nice- Great transportation.
