Stayed in 2 bedroom villa. Very spacious living room and kitchen with all the amenities. There were items included in the kitchen that we've not seen supplied elsewhere. The main bedroom and 2nd bedroom were more than adequate and all furnishings were very nice. Dining room table sat 6 very easily.
There were more activities at this resort than we realized. Shuffleboard, bocce ball, corn hole toss, three pools (one main, one quiet pool, and a "lagoon" pool that was large but shallow for all the kids), at least three hot tubs, three firepits spreadout throughout the property, numerous gas barbeques that anyone could use, and plenty of area for a nice stroll around the property. Even though we don't have small children, there were some families there and the kids playground look really nice. The lagoon pool was ideal for kids as it was very large and the deepest was 1 1/2 feet. It had numerous spouts and a good size waterpark spouts in a side area for the kids (or adults) could run around in. In the early mornings, we saw rabbits running around on the grass.
It is not a large property in terms of number of units and all buildings are three stories with few having a golf course view so if you request a high level floor with golf course view, the chances are slim. We had a ground floor villa overlooking the lagoon and it was just fine. Even though there were kids in the pool everyday, there was not a noise problem.
There was a shuttle the left every hour for the Desert Ridge shopping center (5 minutes away) which had many restaurants, AMC movie theatre, numerous shops, etc. There was also the shuttle to JW Marriott which is a nice property but primarily an upscale hotel. Other than the lazy river area, we didn't see a need to go back for anything else.
All in all, well worth the trip and location.
