Nice visit
The hotel was nice, check out at 10 am is too early though. I do not feel like there is much food options on the property. Seems like a fun place to bring little kids with the swim my pool and water pads. Bring your own food, plenty of nice areas to bbq.

Be sure to ride the trolley with Bobby
Emailed or early check-in since we were driving from Northern CA for my cousin's wedding. No one got back to me and they couldnt accommodate us nor did they offer any alernative. :( the map is super confusing as the property is massive! The time share folks are pretty aggresive about signing up for a tour so we sat in our car to hide from them. :( The sink/garbage disposal in our unit were backed up and broken so maintenance had to come fix but while we were out. The repair guy was very kind and professional. Highlights were the woman who worked at the broadway hill rec center, the pools there as well as Bobby driving the trolley. He was great and so helpful in driving us around. It was so nice to see him on the property. However, the market didnt have the toiletries we needed to buy, housekeeping didn't carry toothbrushes, we didnt have time to leave the property given the wedding, the wifi was terrible and not a secure cinnection. (!) We asked for late check out since we were at the wedding, we got just an extra hour and no other suggestions-such as feel free to stay on the property, just leave your room so housekeeping can clean, nothing like that so we rushe d out and hit the road back home. It was rather disppointing except for Bobby and being in town to see my family. Doubt we'll stay there again. :(

Stay was ok. The bedding was starched and very uncomfortable ie sheets and blankets. Really thought it would be nicer. Rooms are small and TVs didn’t work
