Our tennis villas was updated and amazing. Had all the comforts of home and conveniently located to everything. Staff was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly! The property is very well maintained. I was impressed. However, beware of the sand flies and noseeums. Always be sure to wear big spray!! I got eaten alive!

The resort is huge with a ton of amenities. The Bay view buildings feel dated and could use updates.

We rented Tennis Villa unit 3139 for a week and liked the amount of space for the price. The kitchen was nice with a full size fridge, stove and dishwasher. The beds were comfortable, but the floors were dirty even after we had someone come in to mop them. The downstairs bedroom vents did not provide any air, so my kids had to sleep with their door open to the rest of the apartment. No one liked the blankets, which were thin and noisy. but the pillows were very comfortable. We loved the ocean beaches, the variety of pools and the water slides. Food at the main pool was actually pretty good, which was a plus.
