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.

Our week was Friday to Friday, check-in after 5pm on Friday and check-out at 10am. Since our week included Valentine's Day, we received a complimentary $25 gift card to a local jewelry store, which I thought was a nice touch.
All the villas that sleep six are on the second floor, and there are no elevators, so keep that in mind when packing. Also, you cannot park near the villas; it isn’t like a motel. It can be a bit of walk, so, again, be careful what you pack. We walked into our kitchen, dining, and living room combination and were very impressed. It is quite lovely, with a large table, partial kitchen (there is no oven), and couch and comfortable chairs.
Our bedroom has a king-size bed, club chair, telephone, dresser, and TV with remote (though it is a small one). There are two lamps and a pole lamp. The closet has a safe, iron, and ironing board.
Upstairs there is a loft bedroom with twin beds and a lavatory, perfect for children. On the lower level, our bathroom is very good size, with two sinks and a tub. Everything is in good repair, and when we couldn’t figure out how to plug in our TV, engineering sent a man up within 5 minutes, and even he had a hard time finding it.
There is an on-site spa, and I will make a separate entry on my visit there since I have booked several services. One downside is that there is no wi-fi in the villas. I was able to connect my laptop through the telephone in the bedroom, but the connection was painfully slow. I guess it's better slow than not at all, but I have gotten quite spoiled and I expect every place I stay to offer it.
There are sliding glass doors off the living room onto a deck with two chairs and a table. In February we won’t be using it much. Unfortunately, our unit was smoking and we were never told it might be. Be sure to ask for nonsmoking if you have an allergy.

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.

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.
