Originally planning to visit Kanab, the closest choice for RCI availability was in St George, and by the time I booked, the Worldmark was the only choice left (there are only 3 to begin with, I believe). However, staying there by necessity was not the worst thing. Having stayed in several timeshare accommodations all over, this was one of the best. Anyone who does not know about timeshares, and expects a Hilton or Marriott will always be disappointed. I see people complain about lack of housekeeping, or families with children next door, or some other unrelated thing. But I digress. St George is a great central town within a few hours drive to Vegas (2), Grand Canyon North Rim (3.5), Zion National Park (1), Bryce Canyon (2.5) to name the few. We were a group of girlfriends and were out and about for the most part, getting up early and getting home late. So the apartment was not for relaxing in, was more of a home base between adventures. We had a two bedroom, two bathroom, full kitchen unit on a third floor. The resort itself is on the outside of town, get good directions! If you're driving at night, you might get lost, as the road goes through a residential area and you can miss the turn, I know we did after a long and tiring day...check in was easy, staff was friendly, gave us some area info and maps. The resort has no activities organized except for breakfast few times a week. There are two pools with large hot tubs, great after a hot and long day of hiking in the mountains. The town has all the amenities nearby - shops, restaurants etc. Having a full kitchen was great. Having driven to St George from California, I brought some food stuffs with me, so saved few bucks. If you're a drinker and getting in by car - pack some liqueur (safely), being a Mormon state and all, it would have been an adventure in itself for us to find booze. But I digress again...
The apartment - good rooms, one with Q bed, one with 2 tween beds, each room had walk in closet, full bath. We had A/C, full laundry, BBQ grill on the balcony, all the amenities. Clean, well kept, everything worked, little to complain about. Big enough for us three, between showering, cooking, doing laundry, watching TV in the evenings, we didn't feel like we were stepping on our toes, it was spacious and well appointed. The only thing I could complain about, if I wanted to, would be the mattress, but I am used to the famous 'pedic mattress, so no other bed is ever comfortable...Digressing again! I would book Worldmark again, if ever back in the area, they didn't charge any crazy extra fees like timeshares do - energy surcharge or parking or some other crazy whatever. One thing - no free internet. They charge for that, we didn't use it, besides it was nice to "unplug", even though I had my Crackberry...We used Navigation to find places and maps helped alot, so internet was not greatly missed...Overall great resort, nice area, as an experienced traveler, I was very impressed.
