“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2008

I had previously read in other reviews that the units at the Vacation Club were undergoing refurbishment. Unfortunately we didn't get one of those. The units were built in 1985 and clearly reflect that era. The rooms are small, but with adequate storage. Walls apparently were repainted over very shoddy repair efforts. Lighting was poor. The toilet and showers did not operate propertly The kitchen was good sized and well stocked; but the cabinet doors would not close. Dishes were chipped. The refrigerator was leaking; never did figure out from where. None of these items were corrected when reported to maintenance as of course that would require substantial work. Additionally there are no planned activities as we have enjoyed at even the smallest resort on previous exchanges.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2007

Stayed here through an RCI exchange. Actually we were in the part of the resort called Indian Palms Vacation Club at Indian Palms Country Club & Resort. The rest of the resort may be very nice, but this part leaves a LOT to be desired. First of all, the night manager was rude. The living area was ok, roomy enough, but the bedrooms, bath and kitchen were all tiny. Although we had a 2 bdrm (supposed to sleep 6 with the sleeper sofa), the dinette only seated 4. We had to have maintenance in twice before we got hot water. The pool was much too cold to swim in even though the temp was in the upper 90s every day, and my kids will swim in pretty cold water. We definitely will NOT stay here again.
