We stayed in the Elm condos Dec 24-30. I traded my gold crown timeshare for this gold crown timeshare via RCI. I have a gold crown timeshare and expected the same type of elegance. I did not get gold crown quality.
I was assigned to Elm condo 206. As shown in the pictures, the bathroom was poorly maintained. I was shocked at the level of nastiness, so I asked the front desk to change my room. They assured me that all the condos were the same quality and let me look at units on the 1st and 3rd floor. They were correct! All the bathrooms were disgusting!
I was really upset and checked the rci.com website, which touted "newly renovated condos." Rci.com had 28 pictures of a beautiful resort but none of the pictures were of the bathroom. So rci.com lied by omission, the bathrooms were not part of the renovation.
If you want a nice bathroom don't stay in the Elm Condos. Based on the pictures that I saw of the hotel, the bathrooms in the hotel were renovated.
