The only complaint was with the check in staff and manager. They need to go to a customer service refresher course. The unit we stayed in was very clean, updated and comfortable for our family. Master bedroom shower was pretty impressive. The unit it's self I would give 5 stars. Front check in desk I give a 1. Don't fall for the parking pass timeshare pitch. Just tell them you went the parking pass when you check in. The pool staff may need to know the procedures of when someone gets sick in the pool. The two young gentlemen gave myself and my wife a good laugh watching them.

Our grandkids loved the pool. The gameroom could be better. One game took our money and the machine to get change also took our money.

Very nice room with all amenities that we needed to cook a few meals in the room. At the end of our stay the indoor pool definitely needed cleaning but the rest of the of the property was very clean. Nice quiet location with close proximity to many of the tourist sites

Great Visit!

Check in was seamless and the staff were very friendly. The condo was very comfortable and had all necessities. Location is away from the noise from downtown but is only a quick drive away. We would definitely stay here again.
