We are owners within the Wyndham timeshare system. We chose this resort because of proximity to Charleston (less than an hour away) and availability (we checked in on Christmas Day and stayed for almost a week). For us, it was, as expected, a very nicely appointed 2BR unit. We're not boaters any more, but this place MUST be packed when it's warmer as location adjacent to Lake Marion is a homerun for those who like to boat and/or fish since piers are right outside your unit and launching/exit ramps are inside the grounds of the facility itself. We were disappointed that the pool wasn't heated and the workout room and other "resort" touches were not evident as at other Wyndham resorts we've visited. Front desk staff members were exceptionally friendly and helpful, but the support amenities have GOT to be fourseason to include providing capacity and meeting the interests of guests like us who come in winter to SC because it's relatively speaking "warmer" than our Indiana home. No heated pool? Really?!?!??! No heated whirlpool??!??! Disappointing....and therefore, not VERY GOOD, but instead ranked AVERAGE because of inattention to residents in all four seasons. YES, a nominal orkout room. YES, DVDs to check out. YES to courteous support staff, including maintenance folks. YES to a very comfy and VERY nicely appointed assigned unit. But no one to talk to about locale sights etc. Yes, we know it was Christmas plus a few days, but this IS a resort destination (granted, in Santee, SC, but major tourist locales are within an hour or two) and we drove 12 hours from Indiana to arrive as tourists. So, if tourism brings money into the local economy, then resort support staff should be available if even on a part time appointment basis during a holiday season. We had NO ONE to talk with for as little as 5 to 10 minutes except the kind front desk staff who admitted they had no information to pass on to guests except minimal details about checking in etc. We read reviews and called ahead for the GPS....it was simple to find.
