The zero depth isn't the biggest pool but that made it nice for the younger kids. They were safer from from the rowdiness of older kids.

Bummer! I wish that you had a better room and had better options for changing rooms. If you are willing, could you please elaborate on the resort itself. Did you use any other amenities? Based on your post, it sounds like there is more than one pool. Are they close to one another? What are the differences? Also, when you booked thru RCI, did you book Silver Lake Or Silver Lake-Silver Points? We are booked in a one bedroom Silver Lake Silver Points and I am wondering what the difference is and whether it is a noticeable one. Any other insight that you think might be helpful? TIA!

I'll try to elaborate on the resort some now. We really didn't use any amenities. On the day we arrived, we were focusing on making sure the other parts of our full group also arrived intact, and getting groceries. My 17-year old and I walked over to the main pool, and swam for a bit. It had a tiny splash pool for babies. There's also a bar and a hot tub by the main pool.

There was another, smaller pool right beside the main pool, and the one with a zero-entry, like I mentioned earlier. We also liked that there was no music blaring at the zero-entry pool, like there was at the main pool.

We are RCI Weeks members, I don't know what is different about it and points.

I suggest using Bing maps, or Google maps, to look at the layout of the resort. We were in the 400 building.

I don't know. I have RCI, and wanted a 3-bedroom condo for the week that just ended. Silver Lake was available, so I booked it with RCI.
