The unit was clean and free of bugs and insects, but it had numerous negative aspects to which we are not accustomed. A resort should offer accommodations and amenities that equal or surpass those amenities one has at home to achieve that "Ahh, I don’t want to go home" or "Now, this is nice" feeling. The rooms in our unit were poorly lit, and the light fixtures turned themselves off for no reason at all. There was no shower in the master bedroom and no privacy at the toilet. During the day, that may not pose a problem, but at night it is definitely an unpleasant mental nuisance. No matter how familiar a couple is with each other and how long a couple have been together (40 years for us), some things MUST remain private. The concept of the whirlpool or hot bath is lost without a separate shower in the same room. A Jacuzzi is meant for relaxing and soothing your aching, tired body, not for bathing and cleansing. You should enter a Jacuzzi or whirlpool with a clean body so you can relax body and mind. You cannot do that if you feel "I need a shower."
To top our disappointment, RCI offered us a free-of-charge midweek service that included clean towels and linen exchange. When I inquired, I had to pick up the towels from the front desk, and the room was serviced the next day. "Somehow you were missed," the staff apologetically admitted. But in retrospect, they were not that busy, as it appeared to be a slow period for the resort; we were plainly forgotten. Since we treated this as just a place to stay and not a vacation, we managed to make the most of the situation, and the trip was not that bad. However, we strongly feel we could have had better accommodations and amenities at a common hotel near Springfield at a much less expensive weekly rate. We feel Motel 6 or Super 8 appear to have more luxurious rooms--and they leave the light on for you.

Bad… well goes with where you are. MOUNTAINS!! Steep steps, but they have nice walking trails. Food, eat the BBQ sandwich!! Very reasonable prices on food in the activity center. They have everything pretty close so you will not have to drive much. Putt-putt greens were nice. Everything was kept really clean and nice. Again, five stars.

Our unit was not brand new, but very clean. One bedroom had a large Jacuzzi tub. However, it lacked a privacy door between the actual bed and the toilet/tub area. Not a big deal, one just had to remember to lock the bedroom door for bathroom privacy. Most of the units have very many steps from the parking area to the door, so be prepared to make a few trips for your luggage and coolers. Every deck has a grill. Like most of our neighbors, we took full advantage and cooked outside more than once.
This is not a luxury place, but a family place. The workout facilities leave a lot to be desired, but you can accomplish a great workout just by walking down to the dock and back to your unit.
