The girls and I were very hesitate about our stay here after reading the previous reviews. But, it was excellent; starting from the Welcoming Gala on Sunday (when we arrived) that included fireworks at the end of the show. We were off to a good start.... Monday we had breakfast then we were headed for the sales pitch.....which really wasn't a hard sell at all.
If you do not want membership get up and go. We had a blast!! Yes, I did become a member but that is because I wanted to and they moved us to a Villa that day that included a chef for breakfast, daily. Loved it.......the staff were very accommodating, efficient and went out of their way to see that your needs are met even exceeded in some areas (they even picked fruit daily and left for us).
We went on the Extreme Waterfall, Zip line and horseback riding (handsome Eddie and his staff were great) one day; unfortunately we were to ill to go to dinner that night (we were just not used to that strenuous of a workout! lol) anyhow they had dinner sent to us. Now that is going way and beyond. Chef Jose was truly professional and excellent at his craft. Chef Kelvin provided the best BBQ. Bravo.
I have already planned another trip with family in two months......but, I need to make reservations first before I get giddy. By the way I can understand the complaints and I even know why.....you get what you pay for. I have recommended this resort to all of my friends and will continue too.
Happy in Atl USA
