I believe I am the only non-Italian member, and have been since 2008, spending one week per year there for the first five, then two, April and October. It is run by a family on a modest scale. The journey by public transport to the centre of Rome takes about an hour in total, and the commute gives a feeling of going local. The quiet and fresh air of the suburb after the congestion of the City is always welcome, and you are surrounded by a local community, people walking their dogs and push chairs, which gets you away from being surrounded by fellow tourists. I have one of the large apartments (trilocale), which is spacious. I much prefer the framed posters on the walls to the meretricious "art" in other timeshares I've used. The balcony has a view extending to the Alban hills on the horizon, and to improvise a meal and spend an evening to the background sound of crickets can make a relaxing end to a day of sightseeing. The beds are comfortable but the furnishings are generally basic, but you don't go to Rome to sit in a flat and it's perfectly adequate mainly for sleeping. It has never been other than spotlessly clean on arrival and we try to leave it fairly presentable when we leave. The local supermarket is a great asset, good fruit and veg, cheese counter, bakery, good fish counter, etc. The location has the considerable advantage of being mid-way between the city and the sea: you can be at the excavations at Ostia Antica or the sea at the Lido in about 45 mins by public transport. It's also useful being on the right side of the city for the two international airports. So overall I am more favourable than some of the reviews already posted, but I guess it depends what you're looking for.
