Hello OshawaLobo, thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy the 1 bedroom that you reserved. Possibly next time try reserving one of our spacious 2 bedrooms. Our standard check in time is 4pm. Unfortunately checking in early is not always an available option no matter what time you arrive...

This is normally a time-share/resort kind of place but they do rent rooms for short visits. Very nice "villas" with large kitchens, eating area, screened patios, sitting area with a door between the living and sleeping areas. Always nice. Large bathroom. No shampoo/conditioner/lotion so take your own!!! The only negative was the extremely long cancellation window. We rented two units...

Where do I start?! My family absolutely loved this place! I loved that our children had a room and TV to themselves. My husband liked that there were three bathrooms. Not to mention the jet powered bathtubs. This was a spring break vacation but with winter weather. The kids had a blast in the indoor pool. While my husband and...

Two couples shared this 2 BR, 2 BA condo (5H2) which offered plenty of comfortable space for all. The unit appeared to have been newly renovated with fresh paint and new appliances. One BR had twin beds and was across the hall from the nicest BA. The master BR had a king bed with an en suite BA, much smaller...

The first unit had a chair with a broken leg, which my Wife fell off not knowing the chair was broken. The next chair had a 10 inch tear in the seat. The sofa was the type that went to the floor when you sat on it, not to mention extremely dirty. The bathroom counters had cigarette burns on them....

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was quiet and not crowded at all. The room was clean, pretty spacious and comfortable. It was nice to be able to enjoy the indoor pool, since we visited during Thanksgiving and the weather was pretty chilly. I liked having a full size fridge, microwave etc, so that we were able to heat...

We have stayed here many times. We visit for one week around Christmas. The one bedroom suites leave a lot to be desired but the two bedrooms are nice. When we bought the timeshare several years ago we were assured that the rooms would be updated every five years. I honestly DO NOT believe this is the case. The town...
