Stayed here as part of a marketing ploy to get us to buy a timeshare. The hotel is huge and we enjoyed the 2Bedroom unit (very small kitchen unit with no storage). Great views, comfortable beds, pool heated for evening swims, but there was only one hot tub to accommodate all the people in the hotel.
We attended the timeshare presentation with an open mind. We had paid a reduced room fee to be able to stay there, so it was NOT free. Our sales rep was overly enthusiastic, but when it came time to decline to buy, things became awkward as he continued to ask us why not. He sent a manager in who cut the price in half, but we stuck with our decision. Not comfortable at all when they basically accused us of dishonesty.
The hotel is really nice, but wouldn't advise staying here if you have to go through the 2 hour sales pitch which is required.
