Luxury, luxury, luxury. Spent 4 nights here in a two bedroom, two bath room. This is a timeshare which we rented from someone we know. Fully equipped kitchen - ideal for our family of six since we can't afford to eat out all the time on vacation. Washer and dryer in the unit. No room cleaning service unless you pay extra. Pool, game room, and fitness center located in another building (shared with other facilities). There is a fire pit on the second level (floor 1 above lobby area) and board games are also located there. There is a theater you can reserve to watch a movie with surround sound. Could sleep 6 with a king in one bedroom, two twins in another, and a pull-out couch in the living area. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.
There is a village within walking distance that provides a skating rink (roller in summer), miniature golf, tetherball, sandbox for the toddlers, mountain bikes, and refreshments like pizza, coffee, Japanese restaurant, (gas) fire pits to gather around (if you can ever find a staff member to light one - that was a frustrating part. Even our hotel concierge called but noone showed up to light one for us despite the "we'll have someone there soon"), and some apparel stores like North Face.
I would definitely try to stay again if we can find someone to rent it from on redweek.
