We traded an RCI for this property. The furnishings were old, musty and unsuitable for a unit that alledgedly sleeps eight people. The partial kitchen was not well stocked, lacking things like a spatula, and even paper towels. Televison channels were limited, and with one restaurant--and no snack bar--dining options were limited.
Thing is, we didn't hate this place. As rundown as the units are, the views of the cruise ships just yards away were quite interesting, and the pool and small beach area were acceptable. The property has a decent lit tennis court, and most of the staff were accommodating. The housekeepers are particularly pleasant. Just wish they'd invest in new furniture and fixtures. I admit the murcphy bed seemed much more comfortable than the usual sofa beds found in other properties.
There aren't any restaurants in walking distance, but for $6, a taxi to downtown restaurants, is very convenient, and much easier than dealing with traffic and parking.
