“getting better”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

Courses are about 7 out of 10. Need that extra touch that they are missing but very playable. Still some stumps from the hurricanes years ago.Price is right.

Reviewed 13 March 2008

You have to rent these units out from the owners directly now on sites like VRBO because there are no short term rentals from the resort in preperation for the pending sale. We loved the privacy and landscaping and the slow pace. Outside of the fact that the huge conference center was only patched up after a hurricane instead of being redone, the pools were warm, the courses were great, we fished across the street at Bannon's fish camp, and hit Disney, Universal, and Cypress Gardens (which was a great deal with NO lines. We got a great unit from a private owner, and we had 900+ square feet for $40 a night with a 36 foot balcony overlooking a golf course lake! I am not sure how you beat that!

  • Liked — The quiet
  • Disliked — The constant need to golf.

I enjoyed my trip out there. I only paid 100 bucks and you have much privacy. Its not the hotels of other resorts that you go to and it is always crowded. And my kids could just go out and play. I love it there. I plan on having my wedding out there in 2007

This resort was purchased by Westgate Resorts in 2002, but doesn't even appear on its website. The company seems to be investing only enough money in the resort so that the physical plant doesn't fall apart completely, but is not actively promoting it as a resort. According to an article in the Orlando Sentinel dated November 18, 2005, homeowners who live in condos within the resort grounds complain that the owner has "neglected the place, doing little to repair hurricane damage from last year and allowing parts of the property to remain in dangerous and unsightly states of decay."

My last stay here, in December 2003, reaffirmed that this was indeed the case. Best to steer clear until things change.

This is not a "resort" at all. It is undergoing major reconstruction- fitness room has no A/C, ceiling, walls or floor, but is still considered open! Restaurants are closed, with one having limited hours; however, it has a concrete floor and is filled with dust. Phones in the rooms don't work, and there is exposed electrical wiring and rotting wood filled with nails hanging from the "poolside bar", which is also closed. There is exposed wood and metal throughout the common areas, and tar paper hanging from half finished roofs everywhere. To top it off, they tried to add a $5 contribution to a charitable pet fund of the property owner on our bill without our consent!

The front desk person, Gordon, told our party when we complained about the deplorable state of the preperty," I don't blame you. I wouldn't stay here, and I tell everyone who calls to go somewhere else".

That says it all.

Stayed October 2005

south course was enjoyable with hilly greens. east course was not in as good shape, although much more challenging and fun to play. greens were flatter.both courses not in great shape, but worth a reeturn visit.
good value.
