We purchased Wyndham points vacation last year as a trial to see whether we might convert our timeshare fixed week to points. We spent last week at La Cascada. Because we are still a young family (we have 3 teens ages 13, 14, and 15), we hoped to be able to hang out in the resort and enjoy it for most of our vacation. We enjoyed ourselves but were a little disappointed in the resort. We have stayed in others and had a lot more options at the actual resort.
The 1 bedroom space we stayed in was nice. However the shower was extremely small (like 3x3.5). I could not extend my arms out. They didn't put a regular light or ceiling fan in the bedroom either. Lighting was terrible but the beds were very comfortable.
The fitness room was pretty sparse and some of the treadmills did not work. The pool was on the 6th floor and was 4 feet deep (too shallow for our kids). With the number of people there, the pool was quite small...you had to go at odd times to really enjoy it. The games/recreation available was limited to board games, DVDs, and a pool table.
The biggest plus for La Cascada is its location. Its the perfect location for accessing the Riverwalk and the Alamo area. We enjoyed being able to walk to those areas.
The biggest disappointment of the trip however was the sales presentation. We were asked to come to a welcome session which ended up being a 90 minute sales pitch on 1 day and and 45 minute continuation on the next. We were not told that it was going to be a sales pitch (although we were mentally prepared) and that was the biggest issue. Just tell me...don't bait me. It was disappointing.
We probably will not vacation at this location again. It just didn't work for us.
