Of more importance, you get to know... More

My parents own at this location, and invited me along for their "maiden voyage" stay. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the property and the staff. We have had nothing but great experiences here - Miriam and Monica in the front office are extremely helpful (and so kind!) staff in the restaurant are friendly and courteous, and our villa... More

We got HOOKED into attending the Fractional Share Program they offer. That was our First mistake. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!!!!! I cannot emphasize that enough. If you are going there to stay as a Rental then I say it is an amazing resort if you want to relax away from anyone. The site is located about 45 -1... More

So, I've looked at some of the reviews about buying or going to one of the sales presentations, and there looks to be problems in that area, but it's a great place to rent.

This is a beautiful resort that should sell itself. Unfortunately, the sales staff is totally dishonest and their promises are lies at best; downright dishonest. Enjoy the resort, restaurant, and spa but steer clear of anyone who hints of buying here. Just rent, rent, rent.
