The Fairway Villas were beautiful. Everything you would expect from Marriott. Check in was easy. We had a 2bd with plenty of room, basically two master bedrooms, lr,full kitchen, screen porch,laundry in room. Golf course on site. So many activities planned for the week for adults,children and teens. They have an informational meeting on Mondays that really is only an informational meeting, not a timeshare set up as you would think. There are a few presenters there including the concierge to give you info on the resort and the surrounding area. Red door spa on premises. One of the things I really liked about the resort is that there were trees and plenty of space inbetween each building, usually timeshares are stacked right on top of each other to get as many units or parking spaces as possible. Also, trash and recycling are at the first floor of each unit. My only complaint is we could here the tv/walking etc from adjacent and above units.
In the area is the quaint shopping in historic Smithville, just up the street. We ate at Fred & Ethels Tavern in Smithville three times this week. Great specials, great food and service. Forsythe Wildlife refuge within minutes, only $4 per car. AC and Absecon lighthouse is about 15 minutes away, very easy drive. We also went to Cape May for the day, a little over an hour drive. We did a combo tour of trolley tour & Emlen Physick house. Well worth the trolley tour price of $10 to have a guide to tell you all about the area. Ocean City about 25 minutes, nice boardwalk area w/beach.
We would definitely come back.
