We've stayed here before, but this time things have gone downhill. I hope Holiday Inn Vacation Clubs will bring the property up to their high standards. It's been sorely neglected by Silverleaf.
When I first arrived, I could not get the gate to open when following the instructions on the sign. They are supposed to have security, but I never saw anyone. I finally had to call the front desk for help. Even the desk clerk said he had trouble getting the gate to open.
During check in, I asked the clerks about local restaurants where we could get seafood, but not chains with frozen fish. Every time the lady would mention a place, the guy would tell her that restaurant was closed! Happened several times. Don't the clerks keep up with local information to help guests? Apparently not!
Then, after we checked in, the desk clerks forgot to give us the keys to the unit! Then, after I drove back and got our keys, my key would NOT work, and the doorknob was very loose.
Maintenance came by the next morning to fix the problem. After much struggling and graphite, he got the key to work ONCE. I never got it to work the entire stay.
Then, every time we used the shower, the smoke detector would chirp. So annoying! Also, the upholstery needed a good deep cleaning. You could see the stains from body oils and God knows what else on the furniture. Yuck!
On the upside, we did enjoy the walking trails throughout the resort, as well as the peace and quiet during the week.
On the weekends, they rent the cabins for $50 a night to anyone with the money, and nobody tells the rowdys to quiet down after midnight! No respect for other people at all. I was so glad to see them go on Sunday morning!
Now, if we could just get WIFI in our units it would be awesome. As it is, you have to drive over to the resort check in office and sit in an uncomfortable noisy area to get any internet signal. Even cell phone coverage was spotty to none at the cabins.
