Our group of 3 couples all checked in through the first club and they helped make the entire stay (7 day, mid January) as smooth as possible. Raul did a great job of guiding us through the check-in and what perks we had with our RCI membership. Our room was upgraded from a one bedroom suite to a two bedroom...

We stayed at this hotel at the end of November to December 2, 2016. We had three couples and one single adult group. Lobby and check in was good. One couple did not get the right room but was quickly remedied. Nice intimate resort and was easy to book suppers at the a la carte restaurants. We had a King...
