Hello again,
We are staying at summer bay resort as a timeshare exchange. Now, I understand that it is a beautiful complex, but is it broken down into sections?
Ex. New...old... Which area should I request. I have reserved 2-2 bedroom condo's. Do you think its possible to be placed together? We are going Dec 3-10th. Anyone else going to be at summer bay that time?

We just returned tonight from a one week stay at Summer Bay. We were in a 2-bedroom villa, which I understand are smaller than the condos. The condos all looked beautiful and they have a small balcony which the villas do not. From the outside all of the sections looked similar. We were in Sec. 105 and our room seemed fairly new but that section was all villas. There were condos on both sides of us and the resort has 2 pools and a small water park area. The main pool was near check-in and it also had a gift shop, tiki pool bar, lake area water activities, mini-golf, etc.

It was not that crowded this past week and I was wishing that I had checked into the option of upgrading to a condo. Our villa was fine for our family but if this week is typical, and it may not be, getting units near each other would not be too hard to do.

Let me know if you have any questions on the resort.

We are staying at summer bay in october. 3 bedroom unit. Stayed last year and the year before, both in the new section. The "older" section, which is still very nice and well furnished is on the left hand side as you drive into the complex. The "older" section rooms are a bit smaller. I know this because we were put in the "older" section and we moved to the "newer" section. I don't know if you can request a certain condo or not. I have booked mine through RCI bonus time.
