Stayed in unit 4209 August 8-15. We were greeted by several ants. The granit kitchen counter tops were sticky & covered with food crumbs. The kitchen tile floor was dirty, & lots of ants too. WEas guests scrubbed the floors and washed the countertops. The oven & microwave were dirty too.
We had 5 non working light bulbs when we entered the unit--in the hallway, dining area, bathroom and kitchen. The unit was a 2 bedroom with a soft sleeper. We had enough towels for 4 people, even though the unit slept 6. Asked for more towels--resort laundry is contracted out--informed that resort did not receive their linen order. We were given 3 boxes of Tide and informed that we would have to wash our towels :(
The unit is nice sized. For only being a year old, the walls are very marked and dirty. The furniture was dirty and had stains. The trash and open garbage was left out on luggage carts and the end of the hallway. Trash was not picked up by the resort maintenance staff or placed in a dumpster. LOTS & LOTS of ants and bugs. The living room carpet had crayons, fingernails, and food crumbs. Nasty & gross! Was our unit cleaned prior to moving in?? We think not.
We had 2 bathrooms. The hall bathroom door did not lock. We received 1 roll of toilet paper for each bathroom for 1 week. The dishes were dirty. We put them in the dishwasher prior to our family using the dishes.
It's a great location with a nice size unit. Too bad the resort is lacking housekeeping and maintenance.
The pool is open as of 08/07/2009. The resort is still under construction. Lots of trains, but the noise did not bother us. The resort is close to to Busch Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. We even drove to Washington DC, about 2 hours away.
Restaurants --Olive Garden, Outback Steak House, Cracker Barrel, Golden Corral.
