European VillageDishonest business & Realtor

The European Village of Palm Coast is a sleazy and dirty place to reside or to shop in. The main realtor Korreen will promise anything to rent an apartment there, including that there is security and no pets when in fact there is no security at all and there are many robberies and harassments from the drunks that frequent this supposed safe European village. The lobby has been trashed and everything in it has been stolen, it is completely dark at night as there are no lights at all and people that enter it during evenings to use the elevator are accosted by drunks and drug users that use it in between their visits to the European Village's bars. The Lobby elevator is dirty and has been making a loud grinding noise for over six months as no one at the European Village is willing to pay for repairs or to hire a cleaning service to clean any of the building floors or elevators. The crime is continuing to rise as apartments have been broken into and the lobbies on every floor have been robbed of everything in them including tables and couches. It is a terror to be in the elevator when someone enters with a large and growling German Shepherd dog that the realtor Koreen had falsely claimed did not exist. The high noise levels, loud music and voices of the drunks is unbearable as it continues late into the night and prevents the occupants of apartments from getting any sleep. This inconsideration is caused mostly by the businesses within the European Village to drum up business while at the same time they are torturing the occupants that reside in the apartments above their stores. A visit to the European village will show many vacant stores and apartments as it is a huge rip off and a sleazy, overrated and dirty place that is doomed to become Palm Coast's first ghetto. According to witnesses, the European Village was a development scam from the onset, where people were conned into buying apartments and stores, while the developers ran off with the money, leaving the European village without a management as it is today and continues to be trashed. I strongly recommended that no one rents any apartment in the European Village and stays away from a store called the "Coastal Mermaid" where the sweet talking owner Judy is a creep that has threatened and spread lies about a very kind cancer patient who believed Judy and rented an apartment from her after Judy and her friend and realtor Korreen falsely promised that the place was safe, had security and that there were no pets, when in fact there was no security at all and the cancer patient was attacked by a huge German Shepherd in the elevator and was accosted by drunks in the dark, unlit lobby of the European Village. Aside from these dishonest people there are several very good restaurants such as a very good Italian Restaurant run by a gentleman named Larry, the Mezaluna Pizza restaurant, Jean's and a wine store that is run by a very nice lady. Stay away from the European Village and do not make the mistake of residing there.

    My husband & I booked a room at the European Village in Palm Coast, FL for a 1 night stay on a Saturday night.

    The resort and amentiies looked nice and upscale, we even liked our room! After we checked in we left the hotel to go see a movie in Ormond Beach. We returned to our room sometime around 10pm. Soon after we arrived back at our room we realized that we were directly above a nightclub. We knew they had nightlife around the resort, but that wasn't the problem. The problem started when we called the front desk and told him that our walls were vibrating and it's very loud in our room, then we were told by the clerk that the music doesn't stop till about 2am.

    We were NEVER offered another room, so at 1:15AM we decided that we've had enough and checked-out. The desk clerk informed us that he had no authority to refund our credit card and that we'd have to call accounting in the morning (Sun.). So in the morning, we called this accounting person and she told us it would be taken care of 1st thing Mon. AM. On Monday AM I called the front desk to confirm the refund, and was told by another clerk that the refund was not issued and that ususally the NEVER issue refunds and that the clerk that worked on that night probably couldn't have moved us anyway and that they don't have access to all the rooms, and again she has no authority to help me and there was not anyone with any authority to speak with. I'm told again I'd have to wait to speak with the accountant on Wed. afternoon. So on Wed. afternoon I spoke with the accountant and she told me that she never said we'd get a refund, but that her "controller" would be in on Monday and that they said they would NOT refund our money. After a couple phone calls to her controller the final outcome was the same...the hotel refuses to refund our money and that we will just have to contest the charges on our CC. She would not give me any corporate contact or # or address info. She did however offer to give us a comp. for a future stay to prove that they are nice place. We refused their offer for reasons all explained above! Why whould we want to stay at a hotel that never has anyone on duty with any authority to either move a customer or whatever the case may be.

    There are reviews on this resort on palmcoast.biz and the issues are very similar! I'm amazed and in total shock that this place is still in business. I've never been treated so poorly at any establishment.
