We are Wyndham owners. This was our first visit to this resort. We had a 3 bedroom unit with harbor view. It was so nice! On Friday & Saturday nights, parking could be challenging. Our room key allowed us to go through a gate leading to the top level of the parking garage. People visiting the Harbor Walk Village can't access the top level. Ask when checking in if your key will work the gate to the top level of garage. Parking is free. The pool area was nice. If your view looks towards Coyote Ugly & Margaritaville, you may hear the music on Friday & Saturday nights, which we enjoyed. There is a boat shuttle over to a private beach. They have chairs & umbrellas already set up for you! You can even place an order for food and the boat will bring it to you! If you need a restroom there is one on one of the shuttle boats. They are working on the beach, I'm sure they will have permanent bathrooms soon. If you plan to fish on the beach, make sure you have fishing license with you! We saw many tickets written for not having fishing license. That could ruin your trip! Eat the "Seafood Mac & Cheese" at Margaritaville! Major comfort food! AJ's is fun. Harry T's $5 appetizer's are available when seated at the bar only. I believe they have a fireworks show every Thursday evening. We will definitely stay here again!!!
