We come here every year because this is our family's timeshare and we love the location. However, it still looks like it did when we bought it 30 years ago. Out dated and moldy. They swear to me every year that they are going to remodel our unit. It has yet to happen. The last hurricane did damage to our unit so they fixed the sliding glass door, replaced our tv and stand, pulled but did not replace a portion of the carpet padding (left the carpet though). Housekeeping did NOT do their job. It looked like they left mid-clean. I had to finish it. The kitchen floor was filthy and sticky. There were large peanut shells left on the floor in one of the bedrooms...thank God we don't have peanut allergies! The AC unit had frozen over so we had to have the maintenance guy (sweet and helpful) hang out to warm up the unit then restart it. Outdoor pool is still in good shape. They've redone the decking around the Snack Shack from the beach to the pool so that's great. The Snack Shack is open more often which is also a bonus. Their activities directors are still going strong and have plenty to offer. Like that they've put in a pool table and kept the ping pong table in the rec center. Weight room needs an upgrade. The steam room was "upgraded" but was not put in correctly and causes puddles. The sauna is so narrow that I worried about running into the heating element. They really must upgrade the tot lots. The old wood and steel makes it unsafe for the kids. Tennis courts and shuffle board courts are still looking good. Indoor pool area is better but the pool itself and hot tub are still in need of proper sealing. The tiles around the hot tub were not installed properly and now are molding. They did add recycling to their waste management which I'm pleased to see. Overall, if it weren't for the location, we would move our timeshare to another property. We will continue to come back till our lease is up but hope that the upgrades are eventually done before then.
