Booked here thinking it was the Sheraton Vistana Vilages so was very dissaponted when we arrived to find there are 2 resorts. Sheraton Vistana Villages where we have stayed before and were amazing and Sheraton Vistana Resort which is old and tatty and in no way up to the same standard.
The place is absolutely huge, blocks upon block of ugly blocks of rooms like a housing estate, many are way too far from tbe pools and also many do not have balconies. We were in Fountains block 46, which was very close to a main highway with traffic 24/7. DO NOT STAY IN FOUNTAINS BLOCKS 49 TO 55 THESE DIRECTLY OVERLOOK THE FREEWAY.Why on earth would anyone want to stay in these. I insisted on a balcony which turned out to be tiny with a completely blocked view by branches of a tree. The grounds are more unkempt the further you get from the entrance, there were whellie bins with smelly rubbish bags sticking out the top, the planting areas were dead with rubbish in many areas. Although I read somewhere the rooms had been refurbished a year or so ago you could tell they were old and had been 'tarted up'.
We had a 2 bedroon unit, exchanged through Interval. We were told we didnt qualify for the free breakfast (in exchange for housekeeping).
Reception area bare and unwelcoming, not what you would expect from a Sheraton.
We drove back over to the Sheraton Vistana Villages and it was as we had remembered. Immaculate grounds, pool area and large clean units. If you have a choice do not stay here, choose the Sheraton Vistana VILLAGES .
