My mother-in-law owns a timeshare through RCI and this is her "home" property (Vacation Village at Weston) - we had never been there before but she gifted us a certificate to stay there. We had both the Unit A and the Unit B in the Osprey building - a common hallway connects both Unit A and Unit B but they have separate entrances. It was perfect for my family as the kids stayed in the smaller Unit B and us parents stayed in Unit A. It was well maintained, clean, and quite attractive - the A Unit was especially nice and large including a great jacuzzi tub. The B Unit didn't have that as it was less elaborate although it was fine for 2 people. We didn't spend much time on the resort as we spent our days in the city - either in Fort Lauderdale (about a 20 minute drive) or Miami (about a 45 minute drive) but the kids got in the pool a few times and liked it. You definitely need a car if you are staying in Weston, but once you have the car it is an easy drive to Fort Lauderdale. Weston is a pretty although somewhat sterile country club type of area, plenty of gated communities, etc. There is not much to do in Weston although there are stores and restaurants for supplies. Note - the streets are super dark here at night, there aren't many street lights, and we got lost in the Weston streets a bunch of times at night trying to find Vacation Village. We felt safe the whole time because of the elite-type of environment - just lost at night. It was a little confusing. Vacation Village Weston appeared to have a kid program with activity but we didn't participate. They do have free coffee at the pool every morning and the pool hours were very good, it was open early and stayed open until late. We are glad we stayed at my mother-in-law's timeshare here and we will be asking her to use it again, I'm sure! The check-in and check-out was very quick, and although they did the typical invitation for us to attend a special breakfast (the time share sales pitch) and did try to entice us with a few "gifts" (more time share sales pitch), it wasn't a hard sell, they took a polite no very easily and did not ask us again, they did not come on strong at all nor was it uncomfortable for either party when we said thanks, but no thanks - they were very friendly and polite and didn't push us after that. One really helpful document they gave out when we checked in was a package of directions to all sorts of different attractions in the area - it came in very helpful! Also they gave us a Vacation Village type of membership/discount card that was great, it provided us with discounts at various attractions and restaurants. The Publix is close to get all your supplies to cook your breakfast, etc. in your unit. You need to go offsite to get food, I didn't notice any place to get food on the resort. They did have a stand selling fruit smoothies at the pool but that was about it.
