Disclaimer: we traded out week from a resort in Beaver Creek, CO. This should not have been offered as an equivalent. There is no comparison to the excellent resort we own in Beaver Creek.
The unit we we're given was incredibly small and had no view other than of the trailer park next door. However, it was very clean and of nice new construction. The unit had basic kitchenette facilities but no table (even a tiny one) to make any use of them. There was no where to put wet coats (it rains here!) other than on upholstered chairs. As others have noted there is no AC which was fine for this time of year but it still required having the tiny window (the only one) open. Unfortunately, this was also directly on the 2nd floor walkway so you heard everyone coming and going at all hours of the night. Not that a TV is huge thing for us on vacation this one was no bigger than about 12" - seriously a resort room with a TV smaller than a computer monitor! The bathroom was nice but had very poor lighting and the modern doorless shower was not designed correctly so water would splash out all over the floor no matter how careful you were. Also, like others said it really isn't on the water/beach like you might be led to believe but that did not matter to us. We found it funny that we were told when checking in that we could not get additional soap and shampoo products without buying them since we were using an Interval International trade. We have never heard that anywhere in years and years of trading.
While the location of this resort worked for us as a base for exploring some areas of Vancouver Island we would not recommend it for anything other than an overnight stay during cold months only!!!!
