Stayed for six nights in early March in a one bedroom suite in the villa.
Very spacious and quiet with a kitchen that easily serves for normal meal prep.
Very nice pool without the carnival atmosphere or constant music/noise of the Lodge pool.
The rooms were immaculate but a very strange floor plan - no door in the bathroom with the tub?
Cons - there is no front desk service or concierge in the villas - they said it's supposed to be just like home. The day we checked in the personnel at the desk in the Wilderness Lodge couldn't figure out how to authorize the key cards for the rooms and there was a long line of people waiting for new keys at 4:00.
If you are serious about breakfast, lunch, dinner or just drinks/snacks in your villa room, bring them with you. Prices for supplies from the Mercantile are very expensive, e.g. $15 for a six-pack of Bud Lite. And the choices are limited. Room service is astoundingly expensive.
Shower is strangely designed to require that you go into the shower and get wet when you turn it on. And water temperature is never hot enough and the shower head is designed to save water.
Overall we liked it and will return next year.
