Upon arrival, check-in was at least an hour wait, then we were sent to the "concierge" aka time share consultant, where we obtained our parking pass and info re: resort activities and the members meeting for the aggressive sales pitch. When we finally arrived to our unit, 2 hours later, our keys did not work. I called the front desk and was informed that I could come back to the desk and get new keys. I told them that I was unloading the car and expected the keys to be delivered asap. Someone came within 15 mins and we were able to get in.
The unit was clean with lots of room. The only real downside to the kitchen is that there is no place to store dry food items. The washer and dryer is a nice touch, but not good quality.
I researched the weather prior to vacation time and decided that a golf cart would serve us better than bikes since rain was in the forecast. Confusingly enough, at the main gate to Wyndham Ocean Ridge (we were in Wyndam Ocean Ridge II), you cannot drive a golf cart through the resort. NO WHERE was this written in the literature---anywhere! Anyone can bike in, walk in, but not drive your EXPENSIVE golf cart rental in without a sticker. CONFUSED, I complained to the front desk which was a futile effort. I finally rented a bike for my teenage son so that he could enjoy his time away from the "grown ups".
Our unit at Marsh Point was just across the parking lot from the covered heated pool, which our son enjoyed. It's the first time I have ever been approached to PROOVE my rental unit by an employee, and it was quite funny after a few days because I was "like really, you have ask everytime???" There were a limited number of lounge chairs available with lots of empty space, so I called the recreation desk to ask for more to be brought out and no one responded. People were lying on the ground and on benches.....UNACCEPTABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE....IT'S SPRING BREAK.
