We made an RCI exchange for a 1 bedroom villa (not a Studio). Some of our experiences are a repeat of what you can read in other reviews, so I won't go thru long explanations. Check-in was friendly and quick. We previously requested a unit on the nort side of the property (away from 89A). The request was honored and we had a choice between a downstairs or an upstars unit. The "required" pick-up of the parking pass exposed us to a nice, young lady who begged us to go thru the sales presentation. She was not rude, just persitent and ultimately successful, since the Helicopter ride was just too tempting. The sales presentation was not unusual, typical high pressure and the sales associate was not taking a No for a final answer.
We arrived at night and it was hard to find the building # since the lighting of the area is pretty subdued. The first impression of the villa was very good. The rooms are decent sizes, with the bath room actually being oversized compared to the living or bed rooms. However, a 1 bedroom unit with a queen size bed is just not what I had expected. So I tried the pullout sofa (which was wider than the bed ..) just to find out that the matress support was badly damaged (Wires sticking out, matress support ripped). I still managed to sleep on it without injury. The patio was nice, but just a parking lot view, no sun all day. The flat screen TV are very nice, WIFI is only free if you have a qualifying AT&T account. AT&T cell phone coverage was non existent. When I tried to use the outdoor grills I found out, that there are no grilling utensils located neither by the grills nor in the appartments. One lucky "Grillmaster" got a few tools at the concierge desk. Overall we had a nice stay (except the sleeping situation).
The rating considered the fact that this is a resort and not a hote/motel and I have higher expectations when booking at a resort. All my home resorts are similar or better than Sedona Summit. Also, if you book an exchange, don't expect to get a top location within the resort, they will usually go to Diamond owners, which is understandable.
