I, and a few gals were invited to tag along with friend for a one week visit in January. The couple that invited us have been long time owners, I believe close to 20 years. The design of each villa is interesting, I had the opportunity on our last day to peak in and get familiar with most of the other villa lay-outs. The Club members from what I could see the week we were there were mostly an over 65+ club...A few kids..looking somewhat bored. I can foresee this becoming a huge issue in the upcoming years for folks that have mobility issues.
Our Villa #5, was large..3 floors.. with two bedrooms / bathrooms on the ground floor, second floor was open concept, living and kitchen space with a huge balcony. The kitchen was well appointed, mind you we ate out almost every day.. Handy for breakfast,making appys / mango margs before heading out for the night. The third floor was the master suite with bathroom. The resort pools were nice in size,with the grounds being well maintained. There is a small gym for working out, I found everything there I needed.. the erg was a hoot,super old school in design..2 treads,a rack of free standing weights, The Club house was comfortable, but dated. think sunken pit, shag carpet..
Negatives to this location... No bathroom on the main living area, the area where we did most of our entertaining. Loved the fact that there was no TV.. I would have loved to have seen a dock system with a few speakers for playing tunes..The Proximity to the Resort next door, Rose Bonita.. Wow, nothing like being woken up from a dead sleep by 4 old clanky metal wheels of a laundry/garbage bin resonating between the Club and hotel corridor. The upstairs master suite was gorgeous, the open concept room with thatched roof was smashing... But, come morning, my Pal and her Hubs were bombarded by a few birds, compounded by the fact that there were no black -out drapes, the sun was blinding at 6 a.m. The windows do have a tint on them, but the fact that the were staring at the hotel next door was cause for discomfort. NO privacy.. There is a huge tree that is there,that probably once acting as a buffer.. but it appears to be dead, no foliage whatsoever...and No it wasn't dormant. This privacy issue was addressed on the first day, nothing was resolved for the week that we were there... at that point even draping the window with a few sheets would have made them happy. And the towel game.. I had no idea this would happen here. We always made our way down to the beach and parked down at the end section... around 10-11 am...never had a problem getting a chair. On our second to last day, my Pal was rudely introduced to what a group of " gentleman" call the Palapa 500. Well, unbeknownst to my Pal.. who by the way is an owner,was up really early.. because of the birds / blinding sun/ no privacy... decided to grab a few chairs ... Ended up being bullied because they were not " Her's ",she wasn't there every day wanting the same chairs, was she really an owner...blah,blah,blah.. she stood her ground only to be skewered and verbally humiliated by this "gentleman".. She left, she was so upset by the whole encounter...A complaint was lodged, management had told her that yes this had been reported before.
Being a timeshare / fractional ownership Club that will be coming up for re-pledging in the next few years it will be interesting to see how many folks "sign again".. Mobility issues / aging members being a key point in making a decision.
