We have been at this location for a week and have a few days left on our stay. I cannot wait to leave.
Until two nights ago, I would have rated this property 4 or even 5 stars. What changed is that we got new neighbors below us, and have learned that the resort does not enforce their quiet hours and that smoking on patios and balconies allows the smoke to come right into the windows of adjacent units. Our new neighbors are apparently nocturnal, because we hear nothing from them during the day but then at night, they party and swear loudly and slam their patio door over and over again while having loud conversations on their patio and smoking into our windows. They also have a baby who does not sleep through the night and whom screamed at the top of her lungs last night for hours on end as her family mimicked her and laughed and yelled over her screams. A mostly quiet and peaceful stay turned into a big city, close-living, ghetto experience. So, it's the luck of the draw. Calls to the front desk were answered by a kind and empathetic attendant who could do absolutely nothing.
This experience has lead to another complaint about the resort that wasn't even a complaint until today... our unit is very musty and must have a window or two open to air out at all times. When we come back from even an hour away, when the windows and sliding door have been locked tight, it smells like a sweaty gym sock. This is even with a blower running on fan speed to bring in and circulate outside air. It is disgusting.
So now, with smoking neighbors, we are realizing that we must choose between sleeping in a gym shoe or an ashtray. (Or not sleeping at all, if those neighbors are also noisy and have a baby who does not sleep through the night.)
Otherwise, the property is decent. It is quite clean and the staff are mostly courteous, however ineffectual. The pool is small and chilly, but that hasn't kept my children dry. :) The underground parking has been appreciated.
However, as it stands and as long as smoking is allowed and noise rules are not enforced, we will not be returning, much less buying into the program.
