This was our second visit to this complex. We stayed last September and were so impressed, that we came back in 2012. Once again we got an excellent deal through Marriott.com and booked for six nights.
We got a great two bedroom, two bathroom unit on the fifth floor of six. This one was slightly away from the pool area but had a great view over the lake to the golf course. It was superbly laid out with full kitchen facilities, including a huge fridge and the master bedroom had a massive whirlpool bath. There were three TVs with full cable and blu-ray players. There was free wi-fi throughout and the only slight negative I could mention would be that the safe was somewhat on the small side.
There are plenty of leisure facilities available, included in the cost - including a very nice pool, shuffle board, a putting area, a superb gym and a great games room - again, if I am going to mention minor negatives, several of the pool cues had tips missing ;-)
The complex is clean and well maintained, but the biggest plus for the place has to be the staff - as last year, they were friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra miles to make your stay special.
There are a number of restaurants in the area including the new Carolina Ale House next door, which has 68 TV sets and 72 beers on draft!! You can use the facilities of the gold resort over the road, but we never bothered, as the facilities on site more than met our needs.
There is a snack bar by the pool, which is new since last year and another great plus for us were the BBQ grills dotted around the complex - all free to use, and excellent quality.
I would have no hesitation recommending this place. I read another poster talked about parking charges - he must have stayed at a different place to us, as the parking was plentiful and free. Entrance and exit to the complex is barrier controlled by very polite and helpful security.
All in all a superb stay.
