Let me start by saying we had a GREAT time on this trip. And the overall property was absolutely BEAUTIFUL. It has a great pool, lovely grounds and you couldn't ask for a more beautiful spot on the beach. That being said, I don't believe it lives up to the RCI Silver Crown award when it comes to the accommodations. Ours was a gulfview suite (I would never call it a 1bedroom condo) which has a lovely screened in porch, unit 214. It was TINY!!!!! We could barely open the door and the bed was in the way. We had to rearrange the kitchen table to make room to open the sliding glass door out to the porch. We had to rearrange furniture to open the sofa bed for my daughter to sleep on each night. Unless I wanted to hang out on the pulled out bed with her, we could not hang out together after the bed was out as all other furniture had to be moved to the other side.
That being said, it was just my 16 year old daughter and I so we didn't need any more space and the furniture rearranging gave us a good laugh. I had asked another couple to join us and fortunately they made other arrangements or it just would have been too tight. We had a GREAT time. If it's just 2 people and you don't mind tight quarters there is nothing wrong with it.
I do not think it should keep the RCI Silver Crown though, not unless they knock out some walls and do a complete overhaul of the property. I've stayed in other Silver Crown resorts before and they were lovely, this was just a tiny efficiency with a wall in the room so they could call it a 1 bedroom...
I recommend staying here, if you're on a budget and don't care where you lay your head. It was great and we got it for only 11,500 points so I'm not complaining.
