My husband and I went to see the resort while researching Five Star timeshare properties in the area. We were very impressed with the multitude of amenities and cleanliness of the entire property. There was some constrction/rennovation going on so one building had a little dust. But everywhere we went there were families having a blast! Yes, it was very crowded, IT WAS SUMMERTIME IN FLORIDA! It is a VERY large property so lots of activity going on. And yes, parking was difficult because it is reserved for timeshare owners, not daily visitors so we just parked across the street no big deal, what would you expect when one shows up unannounced to tour the property!
The units were very nicely decorated with jacuzzi tubs and full kitchens, even in the Studio units. You can walk to shopping and restaurants and there is a breakfast restaurant on-site as well as a sandwich shop, indoor lounge and beachside tiki bar. They have 2 extra large beachfront pools and one large indoor pool. The resort is only 2-3 miles north of Main St. and about 5-6 miles from Daytona Speedway, so would be a great location for race fans. It is a 5 star property and there are only a couple of those on the beach.
In regards to the other review where he witnessed an owner saying she could not stay in her own unit, it is my understanding that the timeshare weeks are floating unless you own race week so that might explain why the lady was confused. That means you can use any week of the year you wish, so they would be putting you in whatever unit is available for the week you requested. I also would like to add that if you're going to visit a Florida beach resort in peak season better be prepared for a crowd! We are native Floridians so we know not to expect privacy and personal attention during that timeframe! This is a great resort with a lot to offer. We enjoyed our visit and definitely will be on the lookout for an ownership week at this resort.
