First of all, I am not a complainer! I just feel that all you fellow travelers would like to have as much information about a resort as possible in order to plan what is probably costing you a lot of money, so here goes:
Please note that there are NO umbrellas anywhere around the adult pool; therefore, you will have a hard time finding shade. There are a few small trees, but mimimal shade. There are some canopies around the family pool, but they are very sheer and do not fully block out the sun and when it is 100 degrees -- you can easily get burned.
The grills are LP gas, so if you barbeque, there is no taste. Hardly worth the trouble. They also are situated along a wall of total sun. One guy was sweating bullets while trying to barbeque.
The grounds are very clean, as others guests have mentioned.
The unit was mostly clean, but I did notice that the carpet was very dirty.
We had a two bedroom unit, which had a lot of space! Very nice.
The living room furniture was very simple. There was a couch, a chair and
two ottomans. No table. A recliner would have been nice.
We were very rushed when we checked in. (I do not know why?) We were not told what the code was (or that we needed a code) to open the gate after 6:00 p.m. and sat there looking stupid when we came back one evening and could not open it. They called security! We were not given any information regarding shuttles/busses to get to the strip, where grocery stores were or anything. Our unit was not ready, so we had to wait. You are, however, able to use the facilities while you wait.
In the laundry room, there are vents in there and they are very noisy. The clothes I put in the
dryer came out very linty even though I cleaned the filter.
Under the stairs as you enter the room, there are two units of some kind, which I assume ran the air conditioning, were also very noisy, especially in the second bedroom. One night there was a high-pitched screech. This may be annoying for you.
The staff were mostly very friendly and helpful, although I did notice a slight cold shoulder when we did not choose to take part in the timeshare presentation.
Although a nice gesture, the "welcome party" was at 8:30 in the morning. We did not attend.
There are NO activities at all.
We felt that 10:00 a.m. check out was a bit early.
All in all, I would recommend this resort as a pretty good option.
