We enjoyed our stay very much. Yes, the units need updating but I feel that the resort is working on that. The area is beautiful, peaceful but close enough to activities for a great combination. The unit was very spacious and the accommodations were great for the guests we had with us. The units are set around a small pond with a nice walkway around it. Would definitely consider staying again. The biggest surprise in the area was Oriental, NC. Beautiful drive along the water in that area. New Bern was a great town and we could sure tell the folks living there were very proud of their historical town! Definitely recommend the Tryon Palace tour and trolley tour of New Bern. We did not have a bit of trouble with internet connection the whole week.

Beautiful grounds and peaceful. However, the units are run down and in need of a major refresh. Varnish on woodwork is peeling off and needs to be refinished. The most frustrating issue was the internet service. Router constantly drooped the connection and when important emails needed to be sent or received we had to drive into a coffee shop in New Bern. Management is aware of the problem but they have no plans to fix it. Unless you are looking to be 'disconnected' for a quiet getaway...stay elsewhere.

We had a great time in New Bern and can't wait to return. Great little town.

Fairview Habour resort is basically one level; no high rises. Most condos are on retention lakes and close to the marina on the main river. There lots of historic and natural sites nearby. Right down by the marina is a great seafood restaurant with an outside deck with a local flavor; it is on the resort so you don't have to drive very far. Off-season is the best time and quiet. I would not reccommend for children.

It is true this is not managed by Wyndham - because the owners were not happy with the way Wyndham was handling the property and hired another company. Some of the timeshare units were not managed by Fairfield for the last 10 years before Wyndham bought Fairfield. This is a beautiful, quiet area. We have been vacationing here since 1980 and will continue. The present management company is trying very hard to improve the property where Wyndham let things go. It is much better than some other places we have stayed through RCI. If you want something brand new, don't come here. The beach is 45 minutes away and New Bern is 10 minutes away. Read more than just one or two reviews. It's a great place to relax and take day trips.

We have done RCI exchanges many times and this was the first time we were disappointed. To avoid repeating other's comments, here are some facts I would have liked to know before I booked here.
1. This is no longer a Wyndham property...a company called Resorts International now manages it
2. Fairfield Harbour is actually a golf and sailing focused residential community. There are a couple of areas of town homes and condos that are used for timeshares.
3. There is a community pool and rec center, but unless you are assigned one of the town homes or condos near there, you could be a mile or more from the pool
4. There is no maid service, so if you want clean towels during the week you have to launder them yourself
5. Bring insect spray, as we had to kill 3 or 4 Huge palmetto bugs (roaches) in our unit every night
We loved New Bern, But will NOT return to Fairfield Harbor.
