This was a very quiet section of this resort and very well suited for people who want to relax and enjoy your vacation . The newest section of this resort and they recently added a gym facility for this location. Even a few places to get a bite to eat.

We had a room in 4900 building which was perfect to enjoy golf course views and beautiful sunsets. The condo is set up perfect for couples or families. The Enclaves II is the new section and the rooms are decorated very tastefully.

The resort was so spread out with a long walk or a shuttle ride to where you needed to go. The first room we were in (ground floor) was dark. The patio was shaded and buggy. Then we moved to a 3rd story bldg closer to some of the activities. Elevators were very slow. (Room numbers were out of order...
