We just came back from a fantastic holiday in this excellent resort. I fully agree with everything said in the previous reviews and would struggle to find any negative comment BUT.. be aware that priority is given to timeshare owners (first Diamond Resorts then RCI and others) and any accommodation booked through a travel website will be given depending on what is available. That means that you might be very lucky and get a fantastic large apartment with sea view but could also find yourselves in a much smaller property with no view at all. They seem to allocate the accommodations the night before your stay so very little can be done to guarantee anything which we feel is actually fair to the owners who invested in the system. This is much more likely to happen in peak times (school holidays mainly). We just experienced this having booked a 2beds for 1 week through RCI and extra nights through a travel website. The first 2 beds was amazing with 3 bathrooms and view on both the pool and sea but the second one was much smaller with 1 bathroom only (it had sea view though but others don't).
Except for that the resort is excellent although location is a bit of a downside and you will need a car if like us you enjoy broader variety of restaurants and scenery.
