We stayed here Fri-Mon for a mini family vacation in the sun! We had a great time, stayed in bldg. 1500 across from the family pool with waterslide. My kids loved it here (ages 8 and 5). It was really crowded and the pool is packed from 9AM-9PM. The activities were fun, Zumba, golf, stuff a buddy ($25 for big one), movie nights, babysitting from 6-9 on Sunday night. The 3rd night we moved over to the Enclaves and that room was smaller, but newer, cleaner, and more updated. The pool over there was really fun, too. I think my kids liked it just as much as the other one, it has a sandy "beach" and another pool up above with a snack bar and fun water feature for little ones. We sat through the presentation to get the $150 gift card, we didn't buy a timeshare but were almost tempted. The yearly upkeep fee killed the deal though, it's about $1,000/year which is a lot considering that's probably how much we spend a year for hotels, but plus you have the cost of the timeshare. Anyway, not for us!
We will definitely come back, probably with some friends or family to hang out with!
