My family of four stayed at the property for one night in early August -- which I'm guessing is high season at the Villas. We do not have a "time-share" and were utilizing the property as though it was a hotel. Note that at the rate of $700 +tax per night for a 2BR suite it was expensive by most standards. The accommodations were phenomenal with a view of the ocean (we had an ocean view .. not an ocean front). Great space in the 2 BR -- 1 King and 2 Queen beds -- and a nice full kitchen. It looks to be a great place for a vacation (more than one night). There is limited eating onsite and so we needed to drive away from the villas for dinner etc. Building is right on the beach with multiple pools and activities arranged that look great for a family with young children (mine are in their late teens).
Only negative I saw was that there was a considerable wait at check-in.. We arrived at the hotel and did all the paperwork before our room was ready... we were offered a room on the first floor before the normal check-in time but were told something on a "high floor" would be available later in the day. I opted to wait for the higher floor with a view ... but it turned out to only be on the 4th floor so that was a bit disappointing. When I came back to the check-in desk to get the room assignment I waited approx 15 minutes for someone to become available... seemed like a long wait at 7pm that night... there were many more staff on duty during the afternoon.
Would recommend this location as long as money is not an issue.
