I too was worried about the negative reviews. I first must share that we own 5 timeshares- all 5 star- Gold Crown and we traded into the Worldmark for Memorial Day weekend. We wanted to go wine tasting and hiking and just relax. We have also traded over 75 times all over the world not including going to our own timeshares. For those of you that are timeshare owners- here are the facts- if you go to your own property you should have a room of your choice with a nice view if you book AHEAD!
When we trade I never expect to get an ocean view or lake view- that is reserved for the owners so timeshare owners .. if you expected anything else or someone told you anything else its wrong. It just makes sense!
We that being said we had a one bedroom and there was us and another couple. We had outstanding service- could not have been better especially Daneen Thompson at the front desk. She did a great job.!
We had a unit right on the lake Bldg G- it was beautiful. It was not dark and deary. There was a nice patio and a barbeque. The unit was very big and comfortable. Our friend is over 6" and over 200 lb and he slept on the Murphy bed. He said it was great and as comfortable as a regular bed.
The grounds were well kept and everything was clean. The pool was crowded with kids for the 3 day holiday but when that was over it was quiet and peaceful. We went wine tasting 2 days. There are some beautiful wineries very close by. Be sure to stop in the front office for your coupons. There were coupons for free wine tasting, discounts on wine. free appetizers or desserts at restaurants. We used them and it gave us a chance to explore new places.
It was a great vacation and I would come back again- and by the way- the lake was beautiful and clear!
