This resort is small compared to other Welk Resorts I have visited. However the standards are still high with good sized rooms, room service and friendly staff. We arrived in the dark and it can be hard to locate your apartment. The resort is two storey without any elevator (except a disabled facility for wheelchairs) so getting all your stuff on the second floor can be a drag. Even though the resort is small they do put something on for the kids every day and a few things in the evening. Best by far was the good supply of gas barbeques located around the site. Everyone BBQ'd each evening.
A tip to avoid the time share dragons - when you check in and finish all the formalities, the desk clerk will ask you to go to the concierge desk to get your parking tag. This desk is the time share desk and immediately you get the pressure. Do yourself a favour - don't get the parking tag, you don't need it. There is no security gate and I never displayed mine. you can avoid the dragons, foe a while.
