This is a vacation club (time share) property that has rooms sold as if it were a traditional hotel. We're not owners, but booked through Marriott as if it were a standard hotel. We were warned by the staff ahead of time that those who are not owners were at the bottom of the list for room quality, but we were still upgraded to room with view of pool and a bit of ocean--I suppose Thanksgiving is low season and perhaps they figure upgrades increase the chance of selling guests on a time share.
The rooms and facility feel brand new. While there's not daily room cleaning, there are very nice staff who come by each day to offer as many fresh towels and other supplies as you'd need. There don't seem to be any quotas or attempts to account for every towel, and so we never had to worry about asking for too few and not having enough if we got too many dirty at the beach and then wanted to go to the pool. The staff also cleaned the outdoor grills every day or two, replacing the gratings with ones clean as to be indistinguishable from new. The whole grill felt like new when I used it.
Our family of two parents, three kids (ages 4 to 7) and two grandparents fit very comfortably in the two-bedrooms suite. The kitchen was great and well supplied with tools. Hotels that don't expect many guests to use the kitchen often have lousy kitchens. Resorts like this one, that don't have restaurants, expect you to use the kitchen and make sure there are extra paper towels, sponges, and so on.
There were lots of cute activities for the kids, like feeding the fish, decorating cupcakes, learning the Hula dance, and watching movies. They were nothing fancy and the space dedicated to kids' activities was small, but it went a long way with young kids (though kids expecting disney-level entertainment might be disappointed).
There were plenty of beach chairs, and there were no fees to use them or other reserved areas to try to get guests to pay extra for.
The only downsides were that there is the usual attempt to get you to go to the time share pitch (though they NEVER asked a second time), there's no real restaurant in the facility beyond the pool bar and the marketplace (though there are plenty nearby, including a few in walking distance), and the checkout time is quite early (10am) and not flexible (though you can shower at the fitness center, which is decent). I would imagine that when it's busier the pool might be a little small for the number of guests the facility can accommodate. While the hotel itself is non-smoking, there is an outdoor smoking area that is unfortunately close to part of the pool.
