One room had a kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom, and the room I stayed in had a full kitchen, large bedroom and bathroom. Everything we needed was... More

Units were spacious and comfortable. Grandkids loved the indoor pool and hot-tub. The golf course at Top of the Rock is a 9 hole par 3 course that... More

The room was great. It was a nice size - with it's own balcony. We loved swimming in the different pools. We also enjoyed being able to take the shuttle to any place on the property. I definitely would recommend it.
