The swimming pool was terrible. It was way too small for the number of guests, and the water felt slimy and tasted extremely salty, giving us visions of swimming in a sea of body sweat. Our kids, who are swimming-pool fanatics, refused to use it after the first day, and this was in July, in 116-degree weather! Luckily, Wet-n-Wild is on the strip, and tons of fun.
The timeshare units are arranged "hotel style," side-by-side, accessible along inside hallways among a multi-story building complex. It was this hotel-like style that provided our family with the most bizarre experience. Our unit had a connecting door to an adjacent unit (as you might find in any hotel), which we quickly discovered, lacked any kind of soundproofing. During our weeklong stay, we were able to learn that our next-door neighbor was actually a sales agent for the resort, who was allowed to stay on property during his employment. The noise coming from his room next door also taught us everything we would need to know, if we were ever interested in soliciting a prostitute. On two separate evenings, this Fairfield Sales Representative hired a "private dancer" into his room, and then negotiated for "additional services." The first night, he apparently failed the credit card test, and the dancer left. The second night, after a LOT of begging, he was much more successful.
Now, we are not naive about how "family friendly" Las Vegas really is, but we had assumed that a timeshare off the Strip would at least provide some sort of buffer. Apparently not.
We do sometimes wonder if we could have negotiated a particularly good deal on a timeshare here, had we been lucky enough to take a tour with this particular agent.
It will be a vacation memory permanently etched in our brains!
Viva Las Vegas!
