My husband and I stayed here on a discounted rate, as we live in town and just wanted a nice "stay-cation". When we arrived they were very accommodating, allowing us to choose from a number of rooms which one we wanted to stay in. We chose closest to the pool. There doesn't seem to be a lot of rooms with great scenic views, but the rooms are VERY comfortable and condo like with full kitchens and big bathrooms. They said they were in the process of refurbishing a lot of their rooms.
The pool was fantastic, very large, and full of a variety of people, especially lots of families. If you don't tolerate small children, they do offer a smaller "Adults Only" pool, but I didn't find it as nice to sit around. They also have a great gas BBQ area that we took full advantage of. I noticed that they also offered daily activities but we didn't participate in any of these. One thing I thought was really cool was that in the evenings, they brought a HUGE screen out to the pool area where they played a "movie night". We didn't do that either, but we did notice there were a lot of people in attendance who seemed to be enjoying themselves thoroughly.
This place is part of a timeshare, and though they tried to convince us, on arrival, to schedule an appointment to "view the properties", we simply told them we were not interested and they let off on any pressure. They did offer a lot of great discounts to restaurants and nearby attractions which was nice.
You definitely need a car to stay here though. It's not conveniently close to any restaurants and there is no food or bar on site.
All in all, this was a very comfortable place to stay.
