As a Marriott Timeshare owner, we've stayed in some very nice places, and they've all been excellent. If you're not a timeshare owner, and you're renting a room here instead of a hotel, you'll love it. If you're used to other Marriott Timeshares, this place is very nice, I do recommend it, but it's not a Marriott 5 star timeshare.
The room was excellent, the grounds were excellent, nice pool, and ammenities. However, unlike other timeshares, this lacked onsite food and grocery service. Yes, they had a snackbar by the pool, can get hotdogs and such, but only till 5pm. They had a little "store" area inside the lobby, but it was no bigger then my master bedroom walk in closet. For many people, this is fine, however, staying at other Marriot Timeshares with "The Marketplace", where you can get a wide assortment of foods, drinks, hot coffee, danishes, cakes, snacks, etc, this was a disappointment. Also no onsite bar or restaurant.
Now, I'm not saying I would not come back here, I would. Just that it's not as nice as others. This place, even though it was in a busy town like Branson, was VERY QUIET, you felt like you were in a lodge in the middle of no where. Quiet and peaceful. Hard to believe that just a few hundred feet or so down the road was tons of hotels, 100's of shows and attractions.
The outdoor pool was fantastic! Very large, multiple sections, with lots of sitting areas. Plus an indoor pool, indoor hot tub, and 2 outside hot tubs. Also, multiple gas BBQ's around the area to cook your own burgers or steaks if you wish.
The staff was decent, the room were great, all modern large flat screen tv's, full kitchens, nice bath and master bedroom.
If you're a family, looking to enjoy the many things Branson has to offer, this place is for you. Very family/kid friendly. If you're an older couple like us, looking for a quiet week away from home, or looking to catch some on the shows, you'll enjoy it just as much.
So, I could have given this a 5, but after staying at other Marriott timeshares, this place is a notch below, but still excellent quality, and a great place to stay!!!!!!
