The condo was clean and well maintained. The kids had fun in the pool during our one night stay. We arrived during the short in-person check in time frame (4-5pm). Call during office hours for key retrieval instructions if you'll be arriving later.

The villas are very nice, clean and spacious. Check-in however is very difficult. You can only arrive between 4 and 5pm. We were 20 minutes late. We called the after hours line 6 times with 2 phones. After staying on hold for 15 minutes (a lifetime with 2 kids who just drove 3 hours) they finally pick up and we’re unapologetic about the situation. The place is lovely but no one is on site most of the time, if you need anything.
