I stayed in a 1.5 bedroom, 2 bathroom, full kitchen timeshare, #316, from April 15-22 and thoroughly enjoyed my stay and the friendly staff. My check in was fast and efficient, and I left with info I needed, though there are booklets in each unit, too. The unit opened with keys (not cards) and the a master bedroom had a...

My wife and I had a bunch of weeks banked through RCI and this place was available so we decided to go. We had a 2 bedroom unit #172. The place was immaculate and was stocked with everything you need. These are older units but very well maintained. Two bedrooms, two baths, tv in living room and master bedroom. We...

Thank you for taking the time out to review our property!! It is extremely busy in the summer time. The biggest hit is the water-slide which you can not find anywhere else on the island. We look forward to having you come back and stay with us.

Was a wonderful relaxing getaway. Our unit was right next to the indoor pool and hot tub which was so cool. The beach is a short walk from the units. They have an elevator for those that don't do stairs. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I am going to plan my next year getaway with them for sure.

This was a really nice Condo. Two bed rooms two baths. This place was clean and well maintained. Very good floor plan, comfortable furniture. We had a view of the ocean. We could view sunsets from our condo. However we did not view the sunsets from our room. We were right on the beach, so we walked on the beach...

Our room was clean and the kitchenette was updated. The bathrooms could use new fixtures. We had a great view and it was very close to the beach. The security guard was a pleasant lady but the office staff did not say one word to us when we walked in to turn in the equipment we borrowed. There is no...

We go yearly. They have put up new playground equipment for the kids recently. If it's your first time going, you should ask the office staff what is going on during your stay. There are lots of recreational activities that you can do, you just have to ask (ie outdoor bowling, bikes, etc) At busier times they even have weekly...

I stayed here back in July with my family. And there was a lady who come out the back who was cussing and carrying on about how she hated working there. There was some big meeting going on back in the back room. I am guessing that it had her stressed out, but that shouldn't effect the level of customer...
