Our unit was updated, clean and spacious. Security was good. The location is convenient. Check in was easy with one exception: While we respect and understand they are just doing their job, we did not appreciate the sales pitch to participate in a timeshare presentation. Once we said we had no interest, the girl persisted before giving us our parking...

Nice timeshare property with two large bedrooms each with its own bath, fully equipped kitchen. Nothing extraordinary here, but clean and comfortable, and a decent location. We do prefer units with laundry facilities in the unit, but The Colonies does offer a common area with washers and dryers.
