Time share owners since 1986...We did a last minute exchange to this place and have nothing but good things to say about it. Edweig checked us in on July 27, 2013 for the week. He was polite, very helpful and always smiling. He even remembered my name four days after check-in...amazing! When we could not open the safe one morning, I called the front desk and they responded within minutes. We were in building #2 (#2509) on the fifth floor overlooking the gardens, pool and beautiful blue ocean. We awoke to this lovely view every morning. The place was immaculate, up to date and perfect. Another complimentary plus was that garbage was picked up in your villa every morning and midweek housekeeping came and swept and mopped the floors and dusted.The Golden Club had comfy couches, complimentary coffee, many shelves of magazines and books, an exercise room and computer room. There is an Italian restaurant and Tiki bar on the grounds, as well as many restaurants nearby. Publix supermarket is within walking distance and a casino four miles away. It was nice to have cushioned lounges and sun umbrellas set up for use on the beach (part of your $10 per day fee). Ping pong, shuffle board and volleyball was available for use...contact desk. Many French Canadians and South Americans frequent this place, so it is not all RCI timeshare. A long time ago Grace Kelly, Jackie Gleason and Babe Ruth stayed in the villas when they were larger. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay here and would like to return. We have exchanged many times to Europe, Hawaii, as well as many places in the U.S. so we are well aware of what to expect. The only negative I found was that parking is a problem, but don't let that keep you from staying here.
