We stayed in a one bedroom that was smaller than any other we have traded for. It was clean but the beds were terrible. The pull out couch was really rough even for the children. I was surprised that the bedding wasn't bed-bug proof because I haven't stayed anywhere in the last few years where the mattresses and bedding were preventative.
My biggest complaint is that there was a charge for everything that is usually inclusive when you stay at a resort - even in the US. Extra charges for cleaning services, to use the trampoline, to fish, to canoe, to golf - just about everything and if they didn't charge for it, like volley ball and basketball, you had only one hour with the ball at a time.
My second biggest complaint is that there was no pool deck presence. There were 4 or 5 pools but non of them had pool deck service and none of them had shade - which made it impossible to enjoy a day at the pool. A few hours is all that was tolerable in the heat. No umbrellas or tables for the lounge chairs and lounge chairs were scarce.
My kids had a great time fishing and didn't want to leave the resort, and so I would have been happy to stay all day and all night, if the food was decent and there was a little shade but as it was we left each day. One day we went to another resort...
