Having read prior reviews, I exchanged to this timeshare with great expectations that this was a Gold Crown caliber resort. We had a 2BR unit # 8205A which was supposed to be a quiet room which faced the small lake ( based on the check-in receptionist ). However, the reality we experienced is as follows:
• The units have tile floors and if you are not on the top floor you will hear chairs scraping and kids running and thumping from the rooms above and next to your unit.
• There are very heavy doors and the slamming from your neighbors all around you will keep you up around the clock.
• If you paid for the activities package for wi-fi ($26.75) you will get an absolutely TERRIBLE connection with frequent drops and very SLOW throughput. Often times, you will have to log into the site several times to complete a single email. This was very frustrating for us and we often had to leave the resort to get a better internet connection from other hot spots.
• The pools don’t have shade and the umbrellas are very small. Being in the sunshine state, you will get sun burnt very easily if you go to the pools.
• There is only one large pool by the main entrance but in comparison to others we have seen during our travels, I would rate the pools a 2 out of 5 since they don’t have the shade, umbrellas, swim up pool bars, beds, waterfalls or activities a 5 star pool would have.
• The toilet flush is so loud and strong I believe you could flush a whale. Al Bundy (from Married with Children TV show) would have loved these :)
• The beds are very comfortable and we slept very well when the neighbors were not banging their doors, stomping on the floors, dragging their chairs, or flushing their toilets.
• There were brown slime rings around the shower and sink drains.
Summary: This is absolutely NOT a Gold Crown resort. If you do decide to stay here, I would request the top floor but expect to be disrupted by the toilet flushing and door banging of your neighbors. When we return to the area, we will not be staying at this resort.
