This is a great Spring Break location, wherever you live. If you go this time of year, you are nearly guaranteed perfect weather (81 degrees and sunny consistently). There are multiple pools for both kids and adults, all of varying temperature to please both warmer water and cooler water people. The lazy river is a great time, good current to propel you along, and they do not make you stay in the inner tube, which makes it more fun. They have 2 wave pools, and a fantastic beach with great waves. The activity pool is loud, but you can escape that by sitting further away, or going to the beach. Thus, the grounds are beautiful, and functional for both you and your family. Service is excellent, everyone is willing to help. The health club has great equipment, and is included. Rooms have plenty of space, especially if you get a 2 Bedroom Suite. We sleep 6 comfortably.
Weaknesses include the food, which is good to average, but not spectacular. There are some off site restaurants within walking distance which are fantastic (Portabellos and Prime 159). These are safe walks for you and your family. I agree with the review that internet is expensive, and the quality of the signal is not great. I did not try to get internet elsewhere, so I can't comment on that.
Finally, I do agree that the time share/fractional ownership sales is not fun. Initially I thought it would be a good experience, but once the high pressure tactics came on, it became hostile. In the end, like all of these situations, it is not worth the 10% discount, as it can begin to monopolize your vacation (we put a stop to that, but it took hostility to do so). I would avoid this unless you really want to buy a place there, and if so, bargain extensively.
Overall we love this place, and will have a better time next time by avoiding the sales people!
