There were 8 of us spending or New Year's holidays at Ridge Top. When we arrived on Thursday December 29th at around 3:30 pm thankfully there was no line at check in. Lady who checked us in did not seem friendly at all. She just did her job in issuing our keys and explained major directions to the unit. She forgot to issue to us bracelets that were necessary to be worn in recreational facility. When we arrived to our 2 bedroom deluxe unit everything seemed o'k except for few minor things. 1st of all we did not receive any starter kits and ended up calling front desk 3 times before somebody delivered sets of soap, shampoos and dish washing liquid to the unit. When housekeeping person came in she was kind of resisting providing us with dish washing scrub like it belonged to her. We never experienced anything like this before since we are Gold VIP Wyndham members and I thought that's why in part we pay our maintenance fees.
Recreational center had 2 outside mini-golf courses for which apparently as I discovered the hard way we had to pay $5.00 / person. I think that was outrageous! Isn't it again part of maintenance fees? Pool inside the rec center was nothing special and not very deep for adults to enjoy. There was actually kid's pool for children to swim as well. So being that kiddy's pool was there as well why not make pool for adult deeper?
There was carnival night for children on December 31st. We went to check it out. There were some snacks served. There were some New Year's hats , goggles and whistles given out and there were some kids activities e.g Wii competitions, crafty works, painting, but overall there was no leadership in any activities. Everyone was doing whatever they wanted to do, and it did not feel like a holiday at all.
About the unit it was outdated in some areas. Kitchen , appliances and all utensils were really outdated and in need of replacement. When my father was using whirlpool upstairs kitchen ceiling started to leak. I was hoping it would not cause eclectic short, since it started smelling like wires were burning,
We did have an update in property and rep who did an update explained to us that Ridge top units are not Wyndham units and there are better units owned by Wyndham but just not available at a time. Eventually I think units will be updated but it will take some time. Overall it was an o'k stay.
