My friends own timeshares so we stayed here for a week. Unless you use Google Maps on your phone, it would be difficult to find in the dark but it was nice they have a flag out to differentiate it from surrounding properties. We had a ground room which was great as there are no elevators to get to the upper rooms. It was two bedroom (king and 2 twins) with a murphy bed in the living room. The twin beds had horribly soft mattress that need replacing and killed my back. The master king had a very hard mattress. I was told the queen murphy was the best. The rooms are dated but very clean. The kitchen had dinnerware settings for 8 so dishes were done every other day as we did not eat in every meal. The dishwasher was old and bottom of the line, but functioned as long as you prerinsed everything. DO NOT use the hard plastic cups...they add a funky taste to everything! Thankfully there are plenty of glass ones. If you use the pots/pans (made in Brazil and only 2 pots/1 pan provided) use LOTS of PAM. They are the worst so expect everything to stick to the bottom which requires lots of elbow grease to remove it. Several spice packets were in the cabinets for use which was a nice touch. I also like that this resort recycles your paper, plastic and bottles so everything isn't dumped into the garbage bags. Internet is not free (in this day and age, really??) and it took several hours on the phone for us to get access. Window coverings are plastic blinds so bring an eyemask unless you get up with the sun (the room with twin beds has 4 high windows with no coverings so expect your kids to be up early). A/C is locked so it can't be turned below 70 degrees. Using the fans help but they are noisy/clunky so bring earplugs. There is no light in the washer/dryer closet so you'll need to feel inside them to make sure you have everything out. Bathrooms were very clean and towels were plentiful, including pool towels. The soaps they use are Eartherapy. The hot tubs (three, I think) were comfortably warm (November) and always spotless. We did not use the pool but it and the surrounding areas were always clean. Minimal but adequate workout equipment but the room was cool and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. The grounds are immaculate. The views are amazing. It was wonderful to have a back patio complete with gas grill, table and chairs. We ate outdoors more than once. The property overall is quiet and peaceful.
