Where do we start? Check in was okay, but we were immediately shuffled over to get "discount" attraction/golf tickets. We normally don't agree to the time share presentations, but we thought we would save some money... and they said it would only be an hour (more on this in a bit).
We checked into our villa, it was West Village. These are the oldest units there. They have done a few upgrades (counters, floors etc..), but still seemed out-dated (the tv's were not flat screen). We were right at the 4th hole on one of the golf courses too. Having three young children, we were concerned with their safety. We did call to express our concern, but they refused to accomodate us or make other suggestions. We also informed them of our screen which had fallen off as soon as we opened the door. They did come and fix it.
We went to our time share presentation the following morning. Of course the one hour turned into three hours. I think they couldn't believe that we didn't love their resort!!!! What they showed us compared to our unit was totally different. Anyhow, we did get our discount play pass tickets. Don't buy them....you don't need them. What a waste of money. We can't believe they charge for such things as mini golf, the hippo slide, a tube for the lazy river!!!! You can't bring your own beer to the pool either. More money spent......
Speaking of pools. You have to drive or take a shuttle to get to any pool. The pool areas are nice, but cluttered and hard to find a chair (especially at River Island).
We golfed at Legend's Walk. That was nice for a walking course. Make sure you reserve tee times as soon as you get there. The other courses fill up fast. We could only golf the one day.
For a resort (which prides itself on gold crown too), it was very costly and not relaxing. Too big and obnoxious for our liking. Never again!!!!
