We have just finished a week stay and except for a couple of hiccups with rowdy neighbors and wifi issues, our visit was what we have come to expect from Marriott time-shares (we are owners of three weeks at other locations as well as points owners). When we reported our issues to the front desk, front desk Manager Katie Quam took aggressive steps to have security shut down the beginning of a second rowdy night and determined that there was a problem with Wifi on our building. She was great at following up with both issues. The only reason that I am not giving the resort an excellent rating is that I think the on-site market should have more available for pool-side self-service of drinks and food. As this is the off-season their offerings may be scaled down. We enjoyed being close to the tennis courts as it made walking to the JW Marriott to use their facilities very convenient. We enjoyed both golf courses and would not hesitate to return. We enjoyed lunches at The Landing (JW Marriott), Las Consuelas and The 19th Hole Sports Bar. Dinners at The Nest, Restaurant Mama Gina's, The Cliff House and Pacifica (The Nest and Pacifica are sister restaurants and have similar menus).
