We stayed in one of the timeshare units north of the main hotel. It was tastefully decorated, but a little tired in my opinion. It has the "bones" of a first class unit, but again, it is starting to show its age and some of the replacement pieces definitely look "low cost". For example, how the very low end phone was barely mounted on the wall, the bedroom fan that rotated out of round, the closet built-in that didn't slide properly.... not big ticket items, but enough to say that the overall quality is headed in the opposite direction of the very upscale hotel portion of the resort.
All that said, the unit and the resort as a whole is located in close proximity to the railroad tracks. This means that you will witness multiple train passings during the day and even throughout the night. We stayed for 3 nights until we decided that we needed a vacation from our vacation and headed home for a good night's sleep. I think the resort has done whatever they can do to mitigate the noise, but its just a fact that when a long line to train cars passes at 2am, you are going to hear it - no doubt!!
The Hotel itself and the ground, lobby and restaurant is beautiful and very upscale. I think that experiencing the resort for an event is great, as the service and view are top notch. However, our extended stay turned into more of a battle to hang in there than a relaxing vacation.
