This was the first time in Virginia Beach. The location was great. Alot of things to do withing walking distance. Thumbs up for the check in service, just drive up and the staff is waiting for you with your room key and parking pass. Only complaint is we wish there was balconies for the rooms but that wasn't that big deal.

This is a place I will be returning to often. The location is terrific, about Mid-Beach. The room was terrific and the ocen sounds coming through the window at night was terrific.

We traded our timeshare and we were very pleased.

We were concerned that they did not have WIFI as reported in previous reviews. They do now and there is no charge for usage.

The staff was absolutely delightful. They rushed to open doors and always had a cheery greeting. That includes the service staff as well.

This location is convenient to EVERYTHING.

In addition to walking along the beach or the concrete "boardwalk" each night, there are bands playing at various loca outdoor bars and you could just sit on one of the many benches and enjoy the music.

Needless to say the shopping is all around you as it is in most large beach cities.

Norfolk is very close as well and you can visit the Gen Douglas McArthur Museum as well as the Battleship Wisconsin which is docked downtown.

We watched the latest DVD's available at the nearby Harris Teeter Redbox at 1:00 a night. The room has both DVD and VHS (who uses those anymore?) players.

The pool is covered by a solarium which is open to the sky.

There is a full kitchen including a microwave-convection oven which is utterly terrific. A convection oven is our next buy after having used the one there.

There is a business center with the free use of a computer if you are so inclined.

This is one of the best timeshares we have visited in an all around category..

We go to VA Beach yearly for a cheer competition. The past couple years, the hotels have been terrible. This resort was awesome. The staff was very nice and the resort was very clean. Service was very fast. Even the maintenance staff would ask you how your stay was going. Someone else's review talked about the shower. If you turned the shower on full, then it cut the cold water off and you got all hot water. You were only able to turn it half way. We left message at the front desk regarding that on our way out. So hopefully, that will get fixed. We were okay without the balcony. The windows open and you can hear the ocean and besides, when you are at the beach, how much time is spent in the room. When we go back next year, this is the place that we will call. I truely felt that their customer service was the best. Thank you so much!! **Go Fusion** Frederick, MD

I had occasion to speak with the manager, who was the nicest man (Bill). Within our 5-day stay, we met many of the employees of this resort, and they were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms did not have a balcony, which I thought would take away from the resort, but I found out very quickly that I actually enjoyed having the large windows facing the ocean open all the time and being able to hear the ocean at any given time. It was so relaxing I did not want to leave. The rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the pool, which the roof opened up over it to expose the sun. The margaritas were wonderful, and the restaurant was very good. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone looking to stay in the Viriginia Beach area. The beach and boardwalk are very clean and safe, and there are many things for kids of all ages to do at the resort and/or nearby.

I reserved a 1 bedroom suite through a travel site that buys from RCI. When we arrived our reservation could not be found. The resort staff did a good job in locating the reservation but it took about an hour. We were taken to the room by a service company that is on site to make sure things are as they should be. The suite it small, but nice. The rooms overlook the ocean, however there are no balconies. Each room has a nice flat screen TV, which was nice. Although 4 people could stay in the suite, I personally don't think it would be very comfortable. The bath was nice and had a jacuzzi tub. One weird thing was that the water was very hot and was difficult to monitor for a shower. Considering what I paid for the week, it was a great place.
