We stayed here as a guest of an RCI member. They hit us up at check in to do the time share preview. They also called multiple times daily and we did not answer the phone.
We stayed in building 504 room 202. It was a 2 bedroom condo. It was very roomy. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room. Kitchen had everything we needed. Bedding was weak. Furniture was dusty. Walls were dirty. Was a little used and abused. But we did like the overall space.
Location of our building was good, across from nicest pool in resort with tiki bar and grill. They had nightly entertainment at this pool which was nice. We really enjoyed the outdoor movie night at the pool. During the day they had activities at this pool. We played bingo, poker and trivia. Pool was really crowded. Pool at clubhouse was insanely crowded. Seems everyone goes to the two pools with bars.
Pool furniture was terrible. Took advice of another review and brought own beach towels. Pool towels were the worst. Patio area of pool was dirty all week. Not sure what cleaners were doing in the morning. Same garbage in mulch and bushes all week. Plastic Easter egg shells were never picked up. A kid pooped in pool our first night. It was only roped off that night. Opened in morning. Yuck! No poolside service. Only at bar. Nobody walking around cleaning during the day. Lots of cigarette butts. Not impressed with pool.
The only other amenity we used was putt putt. Only $5 and it was nice.
Location was good. Publix, Chinese, Papa John's, Anytime Fitness right next door. Close to Disney.
Thanks to other reviews we brought extra laundry supplies, cleaning supplies, beach towels. We took own beverages and snacks to pool.
All in all it was a good week. But, we would probably never stay here again. If it was cleaner, maybe.
