I tried calling the first day there and the phone just kept ringing. In addition to that, I had to keep trying to call them on my cell phone because the phone in our room did...

Great location, great golf course and okay restaurant/bar. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Housekeeping personnel a little less. Nice pool and work out facility. The room (one bedroom) was very dark and somewhat noisy. Could actually hear the conversation of the people next door. Half of the light switches did not work! Couldn't turn on a light when we...

This condo was so spacious and clean. We enjoyed our stay very much and will return next year! The staff was very helpful and the grounds were super clean. The pools were very clean and the temps were just right.

This is normally a time-share/resort kind of place but they do rent rooms for short visits. Very nice "villas" with large kitchens, eating area, screened patios, sitting area with a door between the living and sleeping areas. Always nice. Large bathroom. No shampoo/conditioner/lotion so take your own!!! The only negative was the extremely long cancellation window. We rented two units...
