There is so much I have to say about this place, I really don't know where to begin. I hoped I didn't have to write one of those long reviews, but there is so much to say, so sit back and enjoy a drink, because we had such an interesting experience we would hate for anyone else to endure.
To summarize, the room was outstanding, but if you are looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay.. Don't Bother Coming to This Place.
We stayed in a very clean two bedroom, two bath townhouse/condo with a full kitchen and washer / dryer. With a family of four during a week's trip, it really came in handy. The place came fully stocked with dishes, pots and utensils. Have to give the rental management credit as well. I asked for an updated place in a quiet section within walking distance to the pools, and that's what I got. It was great. The condo is extremely spacious and nicely decorated. The layout is also very comfortable. The rooms are separated from one another, each with their own bathrooms. There are two living areas and private entrance, so their was no dealing with noisy neighbors. Actually, we didn't hear anything at all. I LOVED IT!!!. The resort itself is very close by to everything. Water Country, JC Penny's, Target and a food store is right down the street. Busch Gardens is about two miles away and Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown is a very short and straight drive away.
In order to get a great price for your stay, you have to sit through a three hour tour and have someone try and sell you a timeshare. Oh wait, sorry, they like to call it a "rental opportunity". Yeah right! We met with Daniel, who was very nice and even gave us a tour of Colonial Williamsburg for free. When it came to sitting down and having them try to sell a two week "rental opportunity" for the grand total of $21,000.00, I said, forget it! Then he brought out TJ, who with his Rolex and $3,500.00 suit tried to tell me he was doing me a favor by not making a profit and offered me a price of $11,400.00 for a two week ownership. After I told TJ no. I got the most deaf wishing look you ever seen in your entire life then he just walked away. Without as much as a "Thank you for your time" or "Sorry we couldn't make a deal". Nope, he just walked away. Then we were rushed into a "secret room" for losers and offered a final deal to shell out $295.00 for a trial experence for one week. We walked away without paying a single dime and even Daniel wouldn't look at us. So Silly!!!
Ok, now for the property.... It's full of very unsavory and rude people who don't have an appreciation for nice things. After a long six hour drive, we parked in front of the check in building and were welcomed by a white mercedes benz with New York plates, blasting rap music with obcenities. As I checked in, I told the desk person who looked out and said "Oh, sorry about that". I immediately asked him if there was security along the resort. He said, no. What! No security! As you walk around the resort, that is absolutely clear. There are three pools along the resort. My children and I went to two of them. The first is a very large and what use to be a beautiful indoor pool. We found a small area to swim in between over 100 people, several of which were throwing a ball around that almost hit us twice and loud annoying music playing from three different boom boxes. As we swam, I kept finding pieces of chipped paint and lost items. We didn't stay very long. The second pool is also large and outdoors. This pool was invaded by two families who used it as their personal pool to entertain near by friends and family for the ENTIRE DAY. Did I mention there is no security to stop them. Really the only time you can enjoy the pools is from 8:00am until 12:00 noon. Then chaos happens.
Really the only amenditites we could use was the fitness center, art & craft classes and bike rental. I guess this group of people were not into being healthy and learning something new.
So if you do stay here, like Mexico, don't go into town. Stay in your room or stay out all day. Good Luck!!!
