We have come here a number of times, it is a very nice place. Actually, it is 3 different resorts at one address, a large property. There is a VERY significant difference in the 3 resorts.
In the "original villas", RCI 1540, it is very quiet, you can park near your condo, many of which are on the golf course. It is a "home away from home", full kitchen, washer and dryer in all units of this resort. There are only 8 steps up or down, it is single story or two story only, unlike "Villas On The Greens" that can have 30 steps, seems like more, or "Mountain Villas" which is just a big hotel style building. All units are nicely furnished however in "Villas On The Greens" the studio (small "1 bedroom" without a fireplace or a washer and dryer) is quite cramped compared to other units. We do NOT recommend staying in these units. Also, the noise level between units in the VOG is awful compared to the other 2 resorts on this property, the walls are just far too thin, so much so that the TV next door drowned out ours like it was in our own room! :o( Also, the desk where you pick up your parking pass, they will do ANYTHING in their power to get you to go to a presentation, just say NO. It isn't worth the small incentive they give you to go to a presentation. There are a lot of programs for kids of all ages, wine tasting, tours to Hollywood if you are not a CA resident, even Disneyland is somewhat close by. Other than the few major faults (noisy, small VOG and pushy sales) the whole place is one of the nicest timeshares in CA, and the rooms are larger than what you will find along the CA coast, except as noted about Villas On The Greens.
