All the negatives reviews made me uneasy when checking into this resort. Yes check-in line was long and staff was untrained but they were trying their best to accommodate. Yes, you need to pick up parking permit from across the lobby so they can invite you for a FREE brunch. If you are greedy, you will fall for the timeshare sales pitch and waste half a day. Since I read all the reviews before hand, I just politely declined the invite and the sales rep did not trouble me again.
The unit is very clean and the pool and hot tub are also very very clean although I did not see any staff cleaning the area but there were always clean towel available. I read in the review to bring your own toilet paper and it was untrue. We had mid-week maid service (included in the $25 internet cost). There were plenty rolls of toilet paper.
We requested a newer building so we got 16208 facing the pool. I would have given this resort a 5 stars if we did not need to use the sofabed. Sofabed in the A unit has blood stein which is disgusting . We had to drag the sofa bed mattress from unit B to double up then slept on the floor because the sofa bed is so uncomfortable. If you don't need a sofa bed, this will not be an issue at all.
Location was great. One tank of gas in a mini van lasted a full week, there goes to show you how central this place is. My advise is ignore the negative reviews , ask for newer building 16 - 19 and higher floor if you don't want the noise from the pool (yes music is loud all day but not annoying) . I am sure people wrote bad reviews were placed in the older buildings. Our two king beds were very comfortable and I am a very fussy sleeper. Internet was at good speed too and I don't mind paying $25 a week which cover mid-week maid service and all the activities although we did not use it. I will come back again as long as I don't need to look at the sofa bed.
We also have ensuite laundry with detergent supplied to us. If you have young children, this may not be the right resort for you because the two bedrooms unit are actually two completely separated suites. You won't be able to hear your children. A two bedroom unit is best for four adults only. I am glad we only have a fifth person using the sofa bed. We would be in big trouble if we think the unit can sleep 8.
