Pros - Nicely landscaped and clean. Lots of space, 2-3 bedroom villas if need it, plus kitchen with washer/dryer, dining area, great workout facility, plenty of pool space/chairs and kids activities (paddle/electric boats, ping pong, pool & fuse-ball table, fishing in pond). Great looking golf course (associated with Nick Faldo). If you are a Marriott Rewards member, you can use your points for this facility. Fast check in and check out. Secret - on cooler days and morning/evening swims, the lap pool next to the baby pool and hot tub is heated. Staff brought around free ice pops by the pool in the afternoon. Nice little sandy beach with volleyball net for kids to play in.
Cons - Mostly minor/nit-picky. No poolside food/drink service (you have to walk up to bar to get food and drinks), walking paths are sometimes golf cart paths so be careful (dangerous when walking on them with small kids), marketplace entrance is where they sell the souvenirs (frustrating sometimes when trying to make a quick buy with kids in tow), pool music can be a little overwhelming for some, fish hooks on fishing poles are too big for the pond fish that are there, our condo was missing a skillet that never was brought when reported numerous times, some furnishings are a little worn, the sofa bed in our living room was sagging and needed replacing, the rooms next to/close by to the main lobby area will get a nice 6am wake-up service when the delivery trucks show up, only one elevator/building unit. Smoking is allowed on screened in balconies (not great when trying to enjoy sitting on patio next to cigar smoker).
