We rented a one-bedroom condo for our family of four for one week. The size of the accomodations were great which included a decent sized balcony, full kitchen with everything we needed for the week. I would have preferred a few more pillows - I didn't make this request but I'm sure if we had asked they would have accomodated us. The king size bed was comfortable - the pull out sofa was a typical pull out sofa.
The resort has four salt-water pools with hot-tubs at each, two pools have a bar and they were all kept very clean. One pool had evening entertainment which was fun. They were always stocked with towels (my preference would be larger towels but not a big deal) and each had a shower to rinse off if you like.
The resort was about 2/3 full and was very quiet in my opinion.
In addition to the pools there is a mini-golf course, a tennis court, a horse-shoe toss, and a basketball court. There is also a lake that has water structures and other items you can rent (sea-dos, paddle boats, fishing rods, etc.). This is run by a third party company. The young man we spoke to wasn't super helpful but we understood they did not represent the resort.
There is a station set up for hair braids which was appealing to us as our daughter wanted this done. Again, they aren't run by the resort but a third party company. They didn't show up for the 2.5the day we wanted to use the service because of a potential storm. The storm didn't happen and my daughter did not get her braids :( Not the fault of the resort but she was disappointed.
We could have opted for the breakfast tour and time-share presentation but we did not. They actually pay you for this so it was tempting but we simply could not carve out the time to take part.
The resort was very close to the parks and shopping.
I would recommend Summer Bay Resort
