From many of the reviews, I was afraid I had made a mistake in booking. However, upon check-in, we found the resort and the unit to be delightful. Check-in was easy, relatively quick, and we avoided the dreaded time-share sales pitch at the parking pass desk just by asking to skip that desk and got our parking pass at check-in-and were never bothered about it! Asked for a newer building and ended up in Bldg 14, parking side, and found it quite nice. These are lock-offs for the 2 BRs, so no adjoining door for those with small kids, but great privacy for older kids or couples. The unit had everything we needed, comfy bed, large jacuzzi, shower, washer & dryer, cookware and dishes, balcony with sturdy furniture and lovely grounds. This included a mid-week spiff-up with fresh towels, bed making, vacuum and extra dish soap and laundry detergent, paper towels and toilet paper. They provide laundry detergent and dish soap for the sink, trash bags and a roll or two of paper towels and TP per unit, but no dish-tabs or shampoo. There are small bar soaps, so plan ahead. The nearby pool (Bldg 16-17) was no deeper than 5-6 feet with a zero entry end and a huge multi-person hot-tub, lots of chairs and a bathroom, and they were constantly landscaping all around. It would have been helpful at check-in to receive more info about internet access, the various pools and how to get to them, and activities, and the $25 mandatory activities fee is a little cheesy, but we really loved the place and would go back in a heartbeat.
