Just stayed here for a week, we love the layout of Villas I better than II. We enjoyed the Shade activites, bingo, wine and cheese and beer tasting. Special thanks to the fitness instructor, Jessica, for great yoga classes and water aerobics. We also took the shuttle over to the JW Marriott and used the spa facilities. The reason I... More

We have a time share & have stayed here on many different occasions. Check in went very smoothly, we didn't have to wait in the line up for more than 5 minutes & our unit was ready at the check in time of 4 pm. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. It was spacious, clean, had high end furnishings,... More

We've stayed at the Villas II, Shadow Ridge and now Villas I. Villas I has the nicest accommodations. We had the 1 bedroom king with the 2 double bedroom attached. It was nice to have the privacy from the other room where our 11 year old's were staying. It might be a bit too removed to put younger kids in.... More

At first appearance, this would be a four or five star property. But we had a couple of issues that resulted in a lesser rating. We are not time share owners, but were staying a couple of nights in just a "room". The room is well appointed and comfy, but a bit smaller than what you are probably used to.... More

We have owned in Villas I for 20 years and always love coming here from the Midwest. This year we did not get the first choice of our locations and it was a bummer.

We stayed here on Memorial Day Weekend. With 2 young kiddos, it was nice to have a mini fridge and a microwave. The pools were very crowded as the weather was perfect. However the Quiet Pool seemed less crowded. There was a small play area for the toddlers to enjoy. We enjoyed Rootbeer Floats, a movie (small theater) and the... More
