    The quality of this time-share property is well above par.

    While there are many fine restaurants in the area I've always felt that a true luxury resort ought to maintain its own dining room. Perhaps that makes me terribly old-fashioned?

    The quality of this time-share property is well above par. It's newer construction and the units are spacious, well-equipped with full kitchen and laundry.Beach is right there as are 3 pools.

    When we arrived we got some vouchets to spend money. The counter who gave us these was trying to talk us into a timeshare presentation really direct and demanding. After we said no, we got more money in vouchers. They asked for 90 minutes and we agreed for a day. We arrived at the sales place, people were nice and really pushy that we are signing a timeshare contract. A sinvle No was not enough to stop them. Please be aware of this club, it’s ridiculous how expensive it is, don’t sign.

    We really liked the vacation club. The ocean view was awesome and the 2 minutes walk to the beach perfect.

    After more than 30 years, it's still our favorite.

    Very comfortable mattress and pillows Many great seafood restaurants on the island! Beach, dunes AND lots of tree lined streets and roads. Highest owner return to home resort of any Marriott/timeshare.

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    If they give you a not-renovated room, it is not worth it - you overlook a construction site basically (pool is being renovated - constructed). So it really does not make sense to be so far from everything and with a very bad view. The big pools - one not working and other freezing. I called the property and they told me all the pools were heated and working which was not true.

    Service, location, room (renovated), very nice room, only if renovated. The small north pool was heated.
