Accommodations Review:

Check in at Westgate was painless. I had read on the boards about the check-in process, so I knew what to expect. I had booked a 2BR villa with the Entertainment book you buy for fundraisers, etc. My dear friend Laura (nickbe) sent me her card so I could get the villa for $90 +tax/night! They never even asked for the card when we checked in. When the young man came out to take us to the villa, he had a pink carnation in his hand and a bottle of Asti Spumante. Nice touch--they do this for all guests, we weren't special! <g> When we arrived at the villa, I was blown away by how nice it was! It was building VVB.  Apparently, the triple letter buildings are newest. This was very new. Huge kitchen, full size fridge, double sink, range, microwave, full size washer/dryer, coffeemaker, cabinets well stocked with dishes and all sorts of utensils, dishwasher, small bottle of dishwashing soap, 2 packets of auto dishwashing detergent, and 2 small boxes of Tide for the washer.

There was a breakfast bar with chairs, and a big granite-topped table with 4 chairs in the large eating area. There was also a wet bar in this area. The living area was also large. There was a big leather (yes, leather!) sectional couch, one section of which opens to a sofa bed. Entertainment center was very nice, with a TV and VCR. The slider opened to a screened patio with several lounge chairs with those thick nice cushions on them. The master bedroom was very big. King bed, another TV, plenty of drawer space, good sized closet. Jacuzzi tub, and separate shower in bathroom, along with single sink. The toilet was in it's own closet for privacy. We had a slider in here as well which has access to the screened patio. There is a screen door on the patio. Obviously we were on the ground floor! We used this door to walk to the pool area that served our building . The 2nd bedroom was very large as well. We had 2 full sized beds, yet another TV, and access to the second bathroom!  his had a sink in an outer area, and a toilet compartment. The tub/shower unit was very large; the tub was a "garden" tub--very big! All in all, we couldn't believe what we were getting for $90/night!! My husband kept saying, "I'm afraid I'm going to be disappointed when we move onsite!"

Pool Description/Comments:

There are many pools throughout the resort. We only used the pool for our building once, and it was night. I couldn't see very well, so I can't describe it fully. But the kids enjoyed it!

Other Comments:

Worth coming to. Tremendous value if you have an Entertainment book, which can be purchased through many fundraisers. Keep in mind I booked this about 1 month ahead for Memorial Day Weekend, and the card rate (1/2 off) was honored.
