My parents are timeshare owners and we've been going down there for the last 4 years. Everyone is so friendly and the resort is beautiful! The beaches are kept immaculately clean and couldn't be more gorgeous. I love that I can take my time getting to the beach in the morning b/c I can almost always find a lounger and a palapa for some shade. They aren't all taken by 7am by folks who won't even occupy them for hours and hours. The water is a gorgeous blue and turquoise.
I will say there are a few drawbacks: the gym is not free (but, well, let's be honest, I wouldn't use it anyways), the wifi is beyond slow - but free! and you can upgrade and pay for faster service (which we did not do), and the food - to be honest, it isn't the best - but it isn't bad either! Also, it would be great if there were more shuttles to the town - but again, it's only a $10 cab ride so not really a big deal. One last little nit picky - all of our pillows were rather lumpy.
The last thing I'll say is that I'm disappointed RR is no longer associated with Interval as I think RCI has terrible options for trading - but again, we never trade so I'm not sure that will be a big deal either.
