Pool Description/Comments:

There are 7 pools scattered around the resort. Some are zero-depth, some have slides and some have fountains or waterfalls in them. Kiddie pools and outdoor hot tubs scattered among some of the pools.

Other Comments:

This is a timeshare resort with 9 different sections. Villa placement often depends on the day of check-in. Some sections are newer and a little nicer than others. Feel free to e-mail for specific questions. I highly recommend a rental car, as it can be quite a hike to reach certain area of the resort. The shuttle times can be limiting and cost more than a rental depending on the amount of people in the party. The resort itself is beautiful, with lakes, waterways, brigges and gazebos throughout. This is a gated security entrance resort---must have a pass.
