This year we thought we'd try something new with our timeshare exchange. With trying something new, we went in with very low expectations and kept in the back of our minds that something like this might happen.
The thing I don't understand are the reviews of this place on pretty much every site, either people have really low expectations or RCI is paying people to write a good review.
I would like to say that we are a well traveled married, childless couple. This place is VERY FAMILY FRIENDLY, and by very, I mean, kids are like 10 to 1 here! Now, don't get me wrong, I don't mind kids, but this place is like a super large kindergarten classroom with kids running and peeing in every direction. The place no matter where you go outside smells of urine. The entire place caters to children.
On to the room! So we walk in, the guy plugs in our refrigerator, which I understand is to save electricity, but it also means that we have to wait until the following day to go grocery shopping. The kitchen is clean, but the stove top was gas which you light with a match, but are scared to because you are afraid the whole place is going to blow! The mattresses there were so hard and were on concrete slabs instead of frames, one night of sleep on them gave us back and shoulder pain for the entire day. And the icing on the cake, our bedroom window was right next to where they have movie night, played very loudly.
To sum it up, we stayed for one night, spent the entire next day looking for somewhere else to spend the week. This trip is a little on the expensive side now, but being comfortable in a new place that has a better bed and view is priceless to us.
