We booked a 2 bedroom condo (Worldmark Timeshare) for my husband, myself and daughter and fiance in early January. The resort is beautifully maintained. The grounds are meticulous and there is a true feeling of serenity here. The beach is just a short walk from all units. We stayed on the 2nd floor so had a small view of the ocean. January is cold and windy and we expected that but it did make staying at the beach for any length of time difficult. The resort is a combination of timeshare owners and public guest rooms. The timeshare units are not right on the beach but it didn't really matter as it is so close. Timeshare owners do not get usage of the golf carts which are a blast (we have stayed here before as regular guests not timeshare owners and my stepson also rented a public unit which was very nice although much smaller than the 2 bedroom we had). The 2 bedrooms are large enough but smaller than most other Worldmark resorts but it was still nice to have a fireplace, two bathrooms, two bedrooms and a full kitchen as well as a gas grill on the patio. The staff is very friendly and attentive. When we misplaced my stepson's golf cart key they brought us a replacement in just a few minutes at no charge. There is only one restaurant on the premises and nothing else within walking distance so good idea to bring your own food especially if you are staying in the timeshare units that have a full kitchen. Walmart is just down the street and we went there for groceries. Monterey and Carmel are a very short drive away and a fun place to spend the day. If you stay in the timeshare unit and don't need room service and can live without maid service and don't need a wild nightlife at your doorstep you will love this place. Public guest rooms do have maid and room service though. We have stayed here 3 or 4 times and enjoyed every visit. They also have a bonfire out on the beach at night which is a lot of fun especially when it is so cold. They provided lots of wood and gave us the newspaper to start the fire and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Overall, this place is a calm and wonderful retreat for families and couples.
