We first visited the Matchroom resort a couple of years ago, and decided to return this year using our RCI exchange. I'm glad we did.
We arrived early, and had a couple of hours to wait before our unit could be ready - which was fair enough, we arrived at 11:30am and in our unit by 1:30pm. The unit was a 2 bedroom apartment, and it was a really good size.
In my last review I mentioned a few negatives, for example the golf course redevelopment and dated furnishings. I'm happy to say that the golf course is complete and looks fantastic, and the room had been upgraded with new sofas and flat screen TV. Still no air con in the main living area, but there is air con in the bedrooms. Kitchens are well equipped with hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine as well as a good selection of crockery and utensils.
Unfortunately, the timeshare sales guys are still there, preying on the RCI exchange guests to "give them feedback on the resort". We were caught out last time with a free breakfast and an attempted sales pitch so we cut them short this time and made it very clear we weren't interested. To be fair, they didn't bother any of the non-RCI guests as far as I could tell.
We ate in the bar a couple of times for lunch, and it was fine, although I really didn't like the burger. Service is always good.
No real negatives this time round - the resort is beautifully maintained with superb views over the golf course and hills. They started renovation of the poolside toilet block during the week of our stay which caused some noise and minor disruption but I'm sure this work won't take long to complete.
