As everyone says, the views are incredible. I am not a ocean-view person but this was a nice change. It was the end of whale season and we still saw many swimming to their summer location. The telescopes by the pool are nice to zoom in on the action. Also a great view of the arch from the pool area.
We stayed there as guests of Welk to do the timeshare meeting. That was LOOOONGer than expected (almost 3 hours). We had the smallest room (it was free so that would be expected!) But enough room for my sister and I. The people above us must have been housing a rhino -- they were so loud (people, if you have kids, respect those below you!! Or get a bottom level room.) Full-size fridge is nice as well. Kitchen was minimal but fine for microwaving or boiling water! Not gourmet cooking while on vacation.
Staff was friendly. Carlos at the pool bar, Manny leading the activities and Gabriel the bellman were always helpful (and Gabriel always called us by name). Concierge desk were helpful although it was minimal that we needed them. Front desk check in was a little slow -- I think the gentleman that checked us in was new or overloaded with 3 check-ins at once.
BRING BUG SPRAY. I was eaten alive by mosquitoes one night out at the pool. There is a lot of foliage around the resort so they bugs are plentiful. They have raid in the rooms, but needed something to fight of the mosquitoes.
The pool area was crowded and its set-up is a little odd. There are 2 separate pools (one is covered a bit to help with shade and is a little cooler than the larger pool) and a smaller "foot pool" that circles the resort. From the pics, we thought it was a lazy river but its just a few inches of water. Not sure the purpose except to look pretty and put your foot in to cool off? It does lead to a waterfall down by the Jacuzzi below. The Jacuzzi is located on a separate level. There is no access to that except for stairs, so if you have limited movement, no way to get down to that area. Just an FYI.
Fire pit area is really nice and great for chatting with other guests.
