It is not an RCI property; but Intrawest does exchanges with RCI.
We stayed there week of July 13. Only 19 out of the 84-or-so units were occupied, so we almost had the whole place to ourselves. Good food, although a bit frou-frou for my tastes (carrot curls with raspberry-hazelnut sauce drizzled around the edges of the burritos- that sort of thing). Service and staff wonderful.
We talked to a number of people staying there who made reservations through something other than Club Intrawest memberships. Approximate prices were around $250 for a one-bedroom. Might sound a bit high, but the ocean views are great, you have full-on, get-nekkid-and-stroll-around-on-your-patio privacy in many units, and the desk will send a golf cart to pick you and haul you around anytime.
Costs two-and-a-half-bucks for cab to town.
All the ocean-view rooms have huge shutter-style doors opening directly onto your beach view.
Outdoor showers in most, if not all, rooms. Outdoor "dip pools" in most units (think of it as an unheated hot tub for four). Pretty good cable TV, with flat-screens - watched Tiger win the British, and Armstrong win the Tour de Lance.
Great swim-up-bar in the pool; see Rodolfo, who will treat you very well and have your liquid refreshment preferences memorized by the second day. Separate, but attached, pool for kids and families, so no problems with splashing and roughhousing in the adults pool. Elvira's is just a couple of palapas away down the beach.
No elevators to any of the rooms. If you have trouble with stairs, you will definitely want to request a ground-level room.
Celso, at the lobby desk, can handle all of your needs, with an honest smile that never fades. And Rod & his wife, possibly the only non-natives on staff, seems to know every restaurant, and the owners, from the south end of the bay clear up to Frank's in Ixtapa.
