I stayed her because my sister is an TS owner. I paid full price for my villa and three days before my arrival I received an email that there is no daily housekeeping for rack rate guest.

I stayed her because my sister is an TS owner. I paid full price for my villa and three days before my arrival I received an email that there is no daily housekeeping for rack rate guest. I called the hotel and I had to beg Russel for at least one cleaning and he told me that he would make an exception and would clean my room on a Wednesday and I couldn't be in the room because of Covid. I left my room early in the morning and came back late afternoon to find the room was not cleaned. I tried to call guest services and they never pick up. Don't get me wrong I clean my home, but I have to clean on my vacation also! Did I mention that the resort was full to capacity, I don't think they really cared about Covid. Read less

My perspective is that of someone who generally stays at Marriott resorts. Also - it was my husband and I. No kids. We also were not there for the parks. We live in St Petersburg (90 minute drive) and just wanted to spend a few days at a pool. We had a two bedroom unit in building 9. The room location was a bit removed from the main area. … Read more
My perspective is that of someone who generally stays at Marriott resorts. Also - it was my husband and I. No kids. We also were not there for the parks. We live in St Petersburg (90 minute drive) and just wanted to spend a few days at a pool. We had a two bedroom unit in building 9. The room location was a bit removed from the main area. It was quiet and there is a lake out front. Pros: * I liked the location of our building #9 - it was quiet. Great for adults but you would want a building closer to the pool if you have toddlers with you. * Room was clean * Grounds are pretty * Parking is plentiful - we had no problem finding a spot right outside our building. Cons: * Almost no shade / umbrellas at the pool. This was a big one for me. There are maybe 6-8 umbrellas at the loungers at the main pool. There are also a few first come - first serve cabanas. You need to get to the pool by 7-8am to grab something that will give you shade. * The kitchen could be stocked better. Marriott does a much better job. * There is no pool service for food or drinks. Additionally I had to wait in line - inside - for 20 minutes to order a drink. Bottom line - I came here to enjoy the pool and the lack of shade was a disappointment. Read less
