Very nice timeshare condos on the Riverside Golf Course. We've been going regularly for 21 years and still really like it. The units were truly beautiful and upscale at the beginning, but they've come down somewhat in luxuriousness since then. Still very nice, and comfortable, though with signs of age showing here and there. The buildings are in various stages of renovation. The 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom, (sleeps 8 with 2 pullouts) unit we had no longer has a King-size bed, and the biggest TV was an old 26". Everything was very clean, but the fixtures are looking old, the door handles are worn, the balcony door is rusting.
Make sure you book a 2-bedroom, so you get the beautiful big balcony overlooking the golf course, and not just the small side overlooking the parking lot. Or figure out a way to ensure you get the 1-bedroom A-side. The B-side is often listed as having a limited kitchen.
We have exchanged to a lot of other timeshares, and this still rates among the best. Being right on the golf course, it feels quieter and uncrowded. The Rec Centre is a 2-minute walk away, with a playground, indoor pool and hot tub, weight room, craft room, pool table, shuffleboard, games and books to borrow free, horseshoes-tennis racquets and more to borrow free (bring your own balls), DVD rentals ($5 each or $25 for the week!), sundries store, and Activities sign-ups. The outdoor pool, waterslide, hot tubs, spray park is at the Sunchaser Hillside Resort - a 5-7 minute walk. In summer, people with pool-loving children might prefer Hillside for the easier access. Our favourite things are the incredible variety of Activities offered - so many are free, others for a small fee. Guided hikes, crafts, several sports-including archery, climbing gym, golf, lots of group games, wellness classes, food get-togethers, events. Something for everyone!
The check-in, maintenance and recreational staff were excellent - especially given that they are currently dealing with a lot of very unhappy owners - very displeased with the timeshare management company. I am one of those unhappy people and will no longer be an owner, so I have no vested interest in whether you go to Riverside or not. It's just a really nice place to be.
