This was my second time at this resort. The first time we stayed in the Presidential Suites - they are awesome but You cannot get a golf cart so we opted for the Villa. We paid for a 6 bedroom villa but got two villas that were 3 bedroom each. They were side by side. We rented from a member that said they were Supreme Members. We learned later that unless you are a member you only can get Villas reserved for "guests". They are older, less equipped and in need of major repairs. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: more space, golf cart with each villa, private pool and breakfast in your villa. Cons: Older units, fewer amenities (most days we could not even get towels, some rooms had no wastebaskets or TV's). The villa was on a main road and it was very noisy. Beds were uncomfortable and everyday was a new maintenance problem. We had water leaking after every rain, toilets breaking and sinks that clogged. The breakfast that everyone is talking about is semi prepared when brought to your villa. The "maid" yes the same person cleaning your toilet with no gloves, is making your breakfast. This could be a great place to stay but for the money we paid, I expect better. I wont be staying in the Villas again until they are all upgraded or I can stay in something updated. Also, if you have allergies or breathing issues stay away. The bedroom downstairs had mold, mildew issues. The resort needs to pay its Direct TV bill. The warning that the service would be disconnected unless the bill was paid keep flashing on the TV's. Crazy!!
