Although everything worked, the furnishings lacked inspiration, and the general feel of the place was tired and dated. The décor was painted-white plaster with ochre accents and wooden doors with lattice inserts. These doors fronted everything because all the "furniture"--dressers, sofa, writing desk, and wardrobe--was built in. The "sofa" was decorated with foam cushions in a floral red, orange, yellow, and green. The room with the kitchenette had three straight-back wooden chairs with rattan seats in front of the counter for meals, a similarly styled stool for the "writing desk" and a double Murphy bed. There was a sink/makeup alcove and adjacent bathroom with shower, toilet, and retractable clothesline (a bathing suit did not dry overnight). A large surprise was the lack of hair dryer, especially as we had not brought our bulky one along.
The bedroom had another bathroom with a tub. There was a small round table with two straight-back chairs and a king-size bed with a bedspread to match the floral pattern on the couch next door.
You accessed the unit with a card, and then each half was accessed by a key, so presumably, each room could be rented out separately. Accessed from each half through sliding patio doors was a balcony with two green plastic patio chairs and a small table. If you did not know your neighbors, you surely would get to know them quickly with this arrangement. The balcony overlooked the pool area and beyond that the ocean, and we very much enjoyed sitting out there, sipping a drink. Our balcony had flower boxes, but they had not been tended in quite some time, and the dirt was littered with cigarette butts—-gross!
The maid did come daily to make the bed and do some housekeeping and also left towel animals (actually the same towel swan) and assorted flowers made out of toilet paper and pothos leaves (small wonder the plants along the corridors were looking a little sparse).
The complex is huge, with many different buildings, not all of which are timeshare. There are two large freeform pools, several bars and open-air restaurants, shops, a deli, and a gym. Daily activities--dance lessons, Spanish lessons, aerobics, etc.--are posted by the towel shack.
