We booked this stay through RCI, so the cost was nominal. The resort itself was nice and clean, and a late night check-in was easy with no problems. The weather was on the cold side for swimming, so we only used the jacuzzi but the pools seemed well kept and they had plenty of lounge chairs and towels. The heated pool was being worked on, which we would have liked to know in advance of our arrival. They could have had more tables for the served lunches however. We sampled several of the lunches, and found them a good value.
We had a end unit (3 bed, 3 bath) overlooking the main pool, which was spacious and well furnished, but outdated. The kitchen supplies were adequate, but we would have liked a few more items. The unit was clean, though our 3 year old found an old razor blade under a bed. Thankfully she gave it to us without incident. On the downside, the unit had several broken tiles throughout and one of the toliets would not stop running.
The resort is in a very good location, close to the beach (we rented bikes for the week) as well as restaurants and shopping. It was nice not to have to depend on a car (and the stapping and unstrapping of kids & car seats) for most of the week. I highly recommend the bike rental as it's the easiest way to get around quickly.
