The units are spacious, and the one-bedroom was very large, with a kitchenette: stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Some rooms include fireplaces. The view of the ocean from the balcony was great.
The grounds are very well groomed and have beautiful flowers blossoming everywhere.

The resort is located on Long Island Sound, with a private beach and outdoor pool. There is also an indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, steam room, and fitness room.
Resort Experience:The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The main building, which includes a hotel, has a great restaurant and lounge. (The indoor pool and fitness area are also located here.) The Sunday brunch is something to see!! We didn't take part in it simply because neither of us could eat that much! But we talked to many of the guests who had attended and heard raving about the food and service.

Spacious rooms and layout of the unit: Our unit had a loft, so even though it was a one-bedroom, six adults had plenty of privacy. Each room is very open and very well-decorated, with high ceilings. The living room furniture is very comfortable, and all of the furniture was very high-quality. The entire unit had lots of closets and storage areas! The kitchen had every gadget wanted (though, with the restaurant, we didn’t eat any dinners in).
A fireplace in the living room which, along with the VCR, lent itself to relaxing (and romantic) evenings.
An indoor pool and an exercise room to burn off some calories.
A fantastic restaurant right on-site (so good that others drive for many miles for dinner). There is also a nice lounge area for after-dinner drinks and many nights there is entertainment.
A beautiful view of the ocean--obviously, it was too cold to go swimming, but sitting on the beach, overlooking the Long Island Sound, was wonderful.
Close to other activities, including two casinos, Mystic Seaport, and our weekend at the Davis Cup Tennis tournament.
Finally, all of the staff was very friendly. I especially appreciated the bellhop bringing my "belongings" to the room, since it was pouring outside. The only negative about this timeshare is that there is quite a distance between where you can park and where your unit may be.

No real activites for kids - our son played in their "playground" for about five minutes and that was it - only one piece and kind of hidden.
The pool and Jacuzzi are on the beach, so you have to walk to get to them, but they are nice.
The restaurant is good, but a bit overpriced. They offer room service, which was very convenient.

If you were on the first floor you got clean towels and clean linen on Monday's - second floor on Tuesday's - if you wanted them to bring towels any other days you had to pay $15.00 and if you wanted the room cleaned any other days it was $25.00 -- otherwise you could take your dirty towels to the lobby by the guest laundry and they would exchange towels or linen for you, I guess at no charge!!
They did have a lounge and restaurant on site - a bit on the expensive side - but nice. If there were any activities we were not told of any. The staff was pleasant but not overly friendly.

This place has about a dozen rooms – a mix of doubles and twins all with porches that command excellent views over the forest and mount Rinjani. Unfortunately the rooms, despite being beautiful, do have a few drawbacks – the walls on some rooms are little more than woven Rattan, so you can talk though the walls or hear the traffic on the nearby street, and in all cases the showers are cold water only. On the up side the hotel will provide flasks of hot water for washing free of charge. The restaurant area is set high up with good views of not only the forest and Rinjani, but also the nearby waterfall.

If you are there on July 4th go out back and sit on the beach and watch everyone set off the fireworks along the shoreline.
