My wife and I stayed here in March 2012 with her cousin and her cousin's husband. We had reserved a two bedroom unit, the same as we have in our home base timeshare. We were put into a one bedroom B unit and after I called the desk they said it was a computer error and gave us a two bedroom but we had to move to another building.,when we checked in we wwere sent to the guest services desk for our parking pass. They talked us into a free breakfast and a "walk through" of a new unit, to be followed by a survey. We were promised "no spiel." and we'd be given discounted show tickets besides.Untrue. This was just to get you to go through the usual high pressdure sales presentation.By four people!
so beware the "walk through" promise unless you have three hours to waste.
The unit was comfortable enough though the furniture was a bit old. The button on the whirlpool was loose and fell out so we were afraid to use it. There was a beetle in the kitchen one night but this can be expected in Florida.All in all, the service staff was friendly enough. There was a list of activities but nothing seemed that exciting unless kids are part of the group.There were five computers in the free internet room but it seemed two were usually out of service. And of course they charged for wi-fi.
We have stayed in about 20 timeshare resorts and I'd rate this one a B-.
